And you had better had many compartments in your stomach because there’s more: Chachi Jalebi is renowned, for more than 80 years, for their kachoris and jalebis. And if it’s Banaras, you have to end with the paan – the Banarasi paan leaf has its own fan following! Unique and delicious – and healthy, because after all, you are walking, the gastronomic walk is the best way to get a taste of this extraordinary city!
