Go and enjoy the 10 fiery flavours of Riddhi Siddhi Chat stall right in the middle of sarafa bazaar. Some of my favourite flavours include pudina, mustard, hing, masala and kewda.

Kulfi Falooda

A popular sweet street food in India, try the creamy slurpy kulfi falooda right at the end of the sarafa street.

Dahi Vade 

Share a plate of Shahi Dahi Vade right at the end of Sarafa Bazaar. I say share, because you don’t want to fill up your tummy just on this.

A yummy chat made of deep fried yam sprinkled with chaat masala and lemon juice is a must have at Sarafa Bazaar. Be careful in summers and do not have too much as it has warm properties and will adversely affect your body in summers. This is a winter street food in India.

Bhutte ka kiss 

Yes, that’s right 😉 With a name that sounds like the ‘revenge of the corn’, this is a popular chat preparation and the kiss is actually pronounced as ‘kees’. While you’re there, don’t forget to pout for a selfie like me !



Whilst you’re there, pick up something for later. You can get some mags kesar shrikhand packed for home and relive your memories of sarafa bazar.


Yes doodh! MILK ! The thickened creamy milk being served at sarafa bazaar brought back memories of Delhi winters and sarojini nagar. If you’re a die hard Haryanvi or want to relive your college days at DU, doodh is something that will make your heart skip a beat.

Want to end with something sweet? Try the Mal Pua right at the entry / exit of Sarafa Bazar market.

Fire Paan 

Worry not, help is here. Finish off your adventures at sarafa bazar with a pan, India’s digestive treat after a treat ! Don’t miss the fire paan, if you have the appetite for adventure otherwise choose from classic offerings, chocolate or meetha paan.


With several flavours to choose from, my favourite was the pan flavour. If you’re not a fan of the real pan, indulge in the pan flavoured kulfi to digest all the food that you’ve had at sarafa bazaar.

TIP: Control the waters in your mouth and walk down the length of the Sarafa Bazar market to figure out what interests you. Start with the Dahi Vada or Kulfi Falooda right at the end of sarafa bazar Indore !
