The 10 worst Indian street food: Do you agree?

India is known for its amazing street food culture and not only is street food the bread and butter for many, but it is also the soul of Indian cuisine. Every corner of Indian streets will have some sort of food shop that will be selling some lip-smacking food that we just cannot get enough of. So, while we have some street food that takes away all the limelight, like Gol Gappe, there are some which have been rated as the “worst Indian street food”. Brace yourself for a list you might not agree with, I know that I don’t!

1. Aloo Tikki

The crispy fried potato cutlets are at number 10 on the list of worst Indian street food! These are usually served with green chutney and have a crisp and spicy taste.

2. Bonda

These are also made out of potato, but the main difference is the gram flour batter it is dipped in. The taste of binda comes from this gram flour, which is then fried and served piping hot!

3. Indian Masala Omelet

Eggs and omelets are a very common street food in India and the versatility of eggs allows people to really experiment with different dishes. The Indian masala omelet is a very local version of an omelet with Indian spices, onion, and tomato.
