Quick Bytes : Shiv Tikki Wala, Karkardooma

Shiv, who is more popularly known as Shiv Tikki Wala had started selling tikkis in 1992, setting up a small makeshift thela arrangement. Over the years, the sheer quality of his products saw him expand into other snack items like Pav Bhaji, Malai Chaap and Tikkis as well as afford a bigger and better establishment. Now, after 20 years, he owns a big roadside dhaba like setting with tons of cars parked outside to have a taste of his delightful wares.

Exploring the place with fellow food lover Sanju Aneja, we tried out his Tikki Chaat and Pav Bhaji. A huge dollop of butter on the bhaji along with chopped coriander, onion and a dash of lemon the dish was lip smacking causing a whole riot of flavours in the mouth . The aloo tikki chaat was great too and the tikki had a crispy exterior with well mashed potatoes creating the perfect filling.
