Old Famous Jalebi Wala, Chandni Chowk

We live in a diverse country called India. Sweets are a part of our life.... we eat sweets on every occasion, every festival, every function, every day!


Old Famous Jalebi Wala is a must visit in Chandni Chowk. Have the most delicious and syrupy Jalebi ever.



The Jalebi wala started nearly in 1884. The name of the shop is apt "Old Famous Jalebi Wala" as it has been functioning and passed on to at least four generations.


The shop is prominent for the luscious and delectable Jalebi. These thick, juicy and glowing hot Jalebis are special because they are made in the most appealing and tempting Desi Ghee. They are made on the scorching and burning coal. The sight while the Jalebis are prepared are a treat for our eyes.


The batter filled in cloth is dropped into the flaming desi ghee in pretty swirls for deep frying. The batter as white as the marble starts turning into the beautiful golden brown color of the mouth waterung Jalebis. These cooked swirls are now transferred to a pool of sugary syrup. Here special hidden ingredients are added to make them the "Old Famous Jalebi." These amazing and shining Jalebis are offered with Rabri.



The menu only consist of five items - Jalebi, Rabri, Aloo Samosa, Matar Samosa and Lassi. Not only the Jalebis but even the other items here are a must try. The prices have increased over time, but the Jalebis are worth an extra penny.
