Does the word ladoo immediately remind you of an ever-popular mithai? Well, surprisingly this is a savoury ladoo, served as a chaat.

It is a classic, famous street food from Delhi, and can instantly spike up the tempo of any party that it is served in. The Ram Ladoo is a savoury titbit made with a batter of dals and spices. These amazing ‘ladoos’ are topped with grated radish, chaat masala and green and sweet chutneys, as is typical of any chaat.

The unique taste and texture of the Ram Ladoos, together with the crunch of radish and the peppy taste of the chutneys is simply awesome!

You can also try other interesting snacks like the Yam-Fritters and Khichdi Pakodas .
