Poha-Jalebisource: wikimedia.org

It's made from flattened rice and is the staple breakfast of central India, mainly Madhya Pradesh. The dish is also popular in Maharashtra, Rajasthan and even Karnataka where it's known as 'avalakki'. The best place to taste poha can be Indore in Mashya Pradesh. Usually jalebi accompanies it. About Indore, HolidayIQ traveller Nikhil says, "This is fantastic place to explore new food items. While there are local sweet and farsan shops here, there is also a local night bazaar which takes place after 10:30 odd. Its called Sarafa Bazaar. You may go to have variety of dishes at night. Thats actually the night life of Indore. Its a beautiful place and worth exploring as well. Best place for foodies. I shall add more info post my next visit."

Parathas are eaten throughout the country. South India has the polular Kerala Parota but Punjab and Delhi are the places that swear by parathas. Be it plain paranthas with tea or stuffed paranthas with butter, they remain equally popular. The paranthewali gali in Delhi is famous for its many varieties of paranthas. HolidayIQ Traveller Pooja says, "Who would miss the scrumptious paratas at Old Delhi. I would always see those lanes of Chandni Chowk in movies and series, it turned out to be much more vintage and populated than I had imagined.There was nothing left on the types of paranthas on the menu that we did not try. To compliment the hot paranthas, we were served chilled hot and salted lassi in mud cups."

Food is very tasty and at cheap rate. Full Kolkata peoples depends on metro, bus and local train. Always people stay busy with their work.
