Places To Eat In haridwar

Places to Eat in Haridwar

Hordes of people pick Haridwar packages to visit its ghats, temples and ashrams, but few come here specially to taste the local food. On the basis of regions within Uttarakhand, the local food can be divided into the Garhwali and Kumaoni varieties. Scroll down for the unique dishes of Uttarakhand and the best places to have those in Haridwar.

Garhwali Cuisine

An ingredient, loved by the people of Haridwar and Garhwal, is gahat or horse gram. With these, a stuffed chapatti is prepared, the flour of which is a mix of wheat, and buckwheat. A nutritious soup is also made by cooking gahat in its own stock and flavouring it with ginger and garlic. Yet another gahat delicacy, close to the hearts of Garhwalis, is koftas. Balls of a thick batter of ground soaked gahat and spices are simmered in a gravy of tomatoes, ginger, garlic, chillies, onions and cinnamon. Gahat is also used to prepare phaanu, a dish rooted deep in the culture of Haridwar. It is made by simmering pancakes of gahat batter in a gahat gravy.

Chainsoo is a soup, made from black grams or whole urad daal, traditionally in an iron wok (karahi). The daal is dry roasted, ground and then cooked in a karahi with cumin, garlic, chillies, asafoetida, turmeric, water, salt and garam masala. One of the most popular vegetable preparations in Haridwar is kafuli, mostly prepared with spinach, although other leafy vegetables like fenugreek are also used. Fresh leaves are blended with chillies and then cooked in a little oil with garlic, ginger, turmeric, asafoetida and cumin. Rice flour is added as a thickener, and the dish is simmered to achieve a thick soupy consistency.

Flour of a grain, called mandua in the language of Haridwar, is cooked in water and ghee to make Baadi, a thick soup. While at a Garhwali-speciality restaurant in Haridwar, you can also taste Bhaddu Daal cooked in the eponymous metal pot. A popular accompaniment to Garhwali dishes is sesame chutney, in which roasted seeds are ground with coriander leaves, cloves, chillies and garlic, and flavoured with salt, sugar and lime juice.

Kumaoni Cuisine

While using ingredients similar to Garhwali food, the dishes of Kumaon, the eastern part of Uttarakhand, are quite different. A dish, prepared in every Kumaoni household, is churkani. It is a watery soup, made with black soybeans, locally called bhatt. Jambu, a type of grass growing abundantly in the hills, is the primary local spice. Soaked bhatt are ground, formed into balls and cooked in a gravy similar to churkani; this dish is called dubke. The Kumaoni version of kadhi is called palio, and it is less spicy than that available elsewhere in the country. Charanji is a curry of black chickpeas, to which yoghurt is added for tang and jambu for taste. Ras is another widely eaten daal in the Kumaon region that is cooked in a karahi for hours. Gahat, bhatt, kidney beans (rajma), whole chana and whole urad are flavoured with garam masala to make the dish.

Leaves of a wild herb, known as bichchhu, are boiled and then cooked in oil. A popular potato dish is gutke, in which diced potatoes are flavoured with cumin, turmeric, ground red chillies and jambu. Bhaang chutney is made by grinding cannabis seeds, cumin seeds and chillies, and flavouring it with lime juice and salt. A tasty and filling sweet dish of Kumaon is pua, in which semolina is mixed with yoghurt and sugar, formed into balls and deep fried. The batter is shaped like jalebis in the oil to make singals. Rot, another festive dessert, is made by kneading wheat flour with aniseeds, cardamoms and milk into a hard dough, which is rolled like a roti and deep-fried in refined oil or ghee. To make singodi, khoya, grated coconut and green cardamoms are cooked in ghee. Bal mithai is another popular delight of Kumaon. For this, khoya is completely browned and formed into long cubes, on which sugar balls are sprinkled.

While in Haridwar, remember to try these amazing and distinctive Kumaoni and Garhwali dishes. Mathura Walo Ki Pracheen Dukan, Big Ben Restaurant, Haveli Hari Ganga, Ganga Lahiri Restaurant and Hoshiyar Puri are some popular restaurants in the city.
