From delicious samosa chaat to exotically flavoured kebabs and biryanis, Uttar Pradesh, also known as "The Heartland of India," has a wide selection of options for cheap and filling street food. Uttar Pradesh is home to some of India's most beloved regional cuisines, including Awadhi, Mughlai, and Kumauni. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes from this state are equally celebrated for their deliciousness. Here are some of the region's most iconic dishes that you can't miss if you make a trip there:
Tehri is an Awadhi-style vegetable pulao that is very popular. Flavor-wise and texturally, this dish is superb. It has a robust flavour and aroma because of the abundance of vegetables and spices used in its preparation. Curry, raita, and green chutney are the condiments that accompany them.
The Batti Chokha is another well-liked dish that you can order. The mashed potatoes, brinjal, and tomatoes make up the chokha, which is served alongside the round wheat baati. Baking the Baati in mud ovens gives it a distinctive taste and aroma. The dish is accompanied by chaat masala, desi ghee, and green chutney.
