Sarafa

Started in 1977, Joshiji ka dahi bada is just not about the taste but also about how he serves it to the people. The magic in the hands of the owner Mr. Ram Chandra Joshi is mesmerizing. He flips the dahi bada tokri without spilling even a drop of the chutney or dahi. The magic isn’t over yet, he sprinkles five spices by using his one finger without mixing the spices with each other. If you want to eat their dahi bada, you ought to be there before 12 am else there’s no way you will taste their dahi bada.

 Yummy and unique in its own way, Saawariya ki Sabudaana Khichdi is a must have here at Sarafa. Mr. Om Prakash Vyas makes this sabudaana khichdi just like his father used to make since 1983. They also serve the famous Bhutte ka Kees which is made with corn, ghee, besan, hing, jeera and dhaniya spiced with their own unique masala.
