Review of Ajit Khalsa Dhaba , Chattarpur , New delhi
When Mohit balachandaran invited me to join him and fellow foodies at
Ajit Khalsa Dhaba I didnt need to give it a second thought - I knew I
was being reintroduced to the delicious world of dhabas by the master
himself .Forty years in business and Ajit Khalsa Dhaba continues to
remain one of Delhi's most famous dhabas . The reason isn't hard to
figure out . The owners have remained true to their product and the food
continues to retain it's ' dhaba ' character and hasn't been
bastardized to suit modern times - no dieting here !
perhaps the most important aspect about the food is the quality . Meat ,
chicken and paneer for that matter were of superb quality - all served
for aprox under Rs 120 per plate - with a big smile .The place is clean
despite being on the busy Chattarpur main road.
We ordered chicken malai tikka and tandoori tikka , the marination was
brilliant , bursting with flavors - however not cooked perfectly as near
the bone there was some red. I do hope this was a one off thing as I
would love to eat these again.Mutton Korma was nice , as was the dahi
meat - nothing to rave about .Ma ki dal too was okay .
was really excellent was the alu gobi , khoya panner and dal fry - the
latter was the showstopper . Rara meat was excellent - something to head
back for most definitely .
The menu is vast and everything is
freshly prepared . Service is great and this is like total value for
money - you can walk away quite satiated after eating a plate of meat
curry with tandoori 2 rotis for under Rs 120 . Do try the place . I am
told the butter chicken is a must do - that for next time .
