This one"s for all the paratha lovers out there. If you"re bored of having those regular aloo and gobhi stuffed parathas, and wish to try something new and exotic, then try your hands on this halwa paratha. Halwa paratha is an interesting combination of sweet and savoury flavours, all in one go. It is a welcome variation amidst those regular stuffed parathas. Tucked in the by lanes of Nizamuddin is a small shop that dishes out this incredible combination of halwa and paratha. As you enter the main Nizamuddin gali, you"d find an old-bearded man drawing you towards these halwa parathas. This deep-fried delight is not only a treat to the palate, but to the eyes as well. This rich and colourful delicacy is quite filling and is humbly priced at Rs. 30 for a quarter kilo. However, if wish to savour this delight, then you"d have to wait for few months, as it is only available during the holy month of Ramzaan.
