India's Golden Triangle
The Golden Triangle is known for its Mughlai and North Indian cuisine—rich, creamy curries such as dal makhani (lentils) and butter chicken, plenty of chickpeas and lamb, tandoori dishes, and kebab skewers, all served with a choice of flatbreads and a variety of rice preparations. No meal is complete without a tall glass of lassi, a yogurt drink. The region is also known for its thriving street food culture. These quick meals, often known as chaat, are easy on the pocket and packed with taste. A good chaat dish combines sweet, savory, and tangy flavors. Try the region’s signature chole tikki: potato patties served with a hot chickpea curry and tangy chutney, garnished with onion rings and coriander.
