A wintery sunday calls for a hearty breakfast and what's better than having kachori and aloo poori. Decided to be lazy and explore this place in my neighborhood. This is a small shop located in Sector -18, Rohini opposite to the DDA park. The Nearest landmark would be Rohini sector 18 and 19 Metro station on Yellow line. My breakfast consisted of following items:😋😋 1 choti kachori plate 1 badi kachori plate 1 bedmi poori plate Price: 75 Rs. Inclusive of all taxes Ratings are as follows: Food quality and taste :3.5/5 Food variety: 4/5 Service and ambience: 3/5 Observations: 1. Bansi kachori wala currently has 2 outlets in Delhi NCR. One is in Rohini sector 24 and second one in Rohini sector 18 (the one I'm reviewing😎😎). The shop signage points out their shop lineage to chandni chowk however the person at the shop informed that the chandni chowk outlet closed prior to opening of the Rohini outlets. 🙄🙄 2. The shop functions from 730am in morning till 8pm in night and serves following items : Choti kachori , badi kachori (the khasta version), bedmi poori with aloo, aloo bread pakora, paneer bread pakora, samose, gulab jamun, gajar ka halwa, jalebi. 3. This is a takeaway joint and few tables are placed for customers wanting to eat at the place itself (no sitting though). As the shop is road facing , so the space in front of shop is little constricted for customers that prefer eating at the place. Also presently No home delivery option available through the shop or through the food delivery apps.😐😐 4. Now for the taste part, The shop person informed that daily 2 to 3 batches (totalling about 300 no.s, excuse my memory if m wrong☺☺ ) of kachori are made everyday. Since we went around 11am the khasta kachori served was not as warm as per my expectations. The aloo sabzi was warmed a little before serving. The aloo sabzi lacked tanginess. The pickle didn't help to enhance taste. IMO provision of kuchalu and little khatapan in aloo could lead to a better savory experience. Also the moong dal filling in kachori was also okayish. Imo in winters garma garam kachori, fresh out of kadai and served with tangy aloo sabzi is something I'd(and any street foodie😎😎) look forward to. The choti(small) kachori didn't have any dal filling in them, they were khasta kachori made smaller in size and having no filling in them. They too were not very warm when served. For me these small kachori didn't make any sense as to why were they on the menu with the khasta kachori. I feel that serving these small kachori with Kadi (as a separate combo) makes more sense and adds appeal. The bedmi poori combo had 2 bedmi poori with aloo. These were served fresh and warm and were the highlight of my visit to this place. The poori were not to heavy in the stomach, though I feel the quality of the oil used can be improved a little. Also I feel the proportion of the dal used in the flour-dal mixture can be increased a little to enhance the taste more. Imo addition of lassi(in summers) and tea(in winters) to their existing menu adds more appeal as well. 5. All in all a decent place to try out kachori n bedmi poori. Also this place imo serves better kachori n poori than any other place in its vicinity. Though I feel their is scope of improvement in quality , as expected of a eatery that claims to work in chandni chowk. Secondly the place should look forward to establish itself in the area through a bit of advertising(home delivery, local ads etc) as it's constricted space undermines it's buisness a little. Looking forward to try out their pakoras, the halwa, jalebi & gulabjamun the next time 😀😀. P.S this food taste review is done in keeping in mind the taste of the JB kachori wala, chandni chowk😋😋. 🙏🙏
