Delhi NCR Food Outlets: (Dr. Rameshwar Dayal) South Extension, the southern area of the capital Delhi, is counted in the super posh areas. This area is both residential and commercial, as well as educational institutions are also plentiful here. A few years ago, students used to visit the photostat shop of the family of 30-year-old Shivangi Vohra, who lived here. He used to ask himself, what has Auntie made? She would say that if Rajma-rice has been made today, or parathas are being made, then the students would say that if you feed auntie, then it is right. They would eat and praise Auntie’s food. The family members told Shivangi that your food is highly appreciated, just open any tray of food and drink. He opened the paratha. These parathas wrapped in Punjabi taste and familiarity are gone. Today, parathas of so much variety are available at this shop that they are rarely found anywhere else in Delhi.

About 80 varieties of parathas are available in this restaurant. The taste in the parathas here is also different and alive because special types of spices are added to the stuffed in it. When this stuffed paratha is baked in oil on a tawa, the spices give off a distinct taste. This taste of spices is the USP of their parathas. While making chicken or mutton parathas, specially cooked non-veg is mixed with spices and mashed completely. Only after that they are stuffed into parathas.
