Lets not get into the argument of who really invented momo , dimsum , wanton or jiaozi first . All these dishes are the part of south east Asia and the recipe e was passed through the silk route . One thing common is they are filling made in thin/normal.think refine wheat dough with chicken , meat , prawns and everything you can imagine
1- Lajpat nagr (main market) - There are many vendor who sell the momos here
Taste - They all taste the same . Momos is nothing to get exited about , there is nothing good in them . The sauce is really spicy and lets u not focus on the taste .
Rating - 1.5/5
Momos point ( Rajourie garden ) - There are several place name by Momos point in DElhi but there is a difference in the taste of the momos . This one was earlier located in the main market of Rajourie garden now Shifted to main Red light near the Rajourie metro station
Taste- You always have to waite here to get the momos made as it's there policy to serve fresh made momos . There is a lot of influence of Garlic and ginger in the momos and goes well with the chicken and for the vegetarians the filling of mushroom and Paneer are really nice
sauce - The sauce is not too high on chilies and is a typical momos sauce which we get in Delhi
QD'S - This is a join back of bunglow road near north campus . There are many places in the area which serve momos but the one they serve is legendary- "chicken tandoori momos or paneer tandoori momos
Taste -This is a very nicely done crossover food . The thing which I personally do not like about the momos is that even after steaming them , there is a feeling of uncooked dough . but with tandoor coming in the momos get roasted. The spices are all good to with filling .

what is butter chicken for the dum dums ?
Butter chicken is a marinated chicken dish made in rich spicy tomato gravy . The chicken can be both with bone or boneless
The origins of butter chicken can be traced back to Kundan Lal Gujral, a Hindu Punjabi, who ran a restaurant called Moti Mahal Delux in Delhi. Over the years there are many number of different recipes altered by people .
Most of the places of some kind of similar taste but some mix and match the right spices in a right manner to give that perfect butter chicken
1- Moti Mahal Darya ganj - let's start with the place that actually invented butter chicken .
This is a place which is not to far from CP , finding it is a challenge as it on the main road but only a narrow gate that leads to the place .
Taste - The butter chicken with the original recepie does not taste to loud on the species it very mild on the spices . the main taste you get is of tangy tomatoes . The chicken quality is really good and as they marinate there chicken for some 2-3 days time it absorbs all the flavor , so when we bite into the chicken this when the main taste comes out .
2- kake ka dhaba (c.p) This is well know place in CP , i have seen many people coming in this place and enjoying the food . The menu is pretty basic and do not expect any good service but timely service is guarantee at this place
Taste - The chicken is fresh but the gravy is a very basic thing , loud on oil and less on flavor. does not comes out to be butter chicken if you ask me , this gravy is like same for most of the dishes like sahi paneer mautter paneer
3- Monsoon ( Le Méridien ) This is a place which took place of Pakwan in the hotel , they have a limited menu . The quantity is not that great and can only serve on person or 4 female models
Taste The taste of chicken is very good , the spices are not that loud but perfect they blend in quite well with the tomato gravy
rating - 3/5
4- Kays (Ashok Vihar ) This place is located in the central market of Ashok vihar populary know as Deep market
Taste The gravy is not too rich in oil and is not a very heavy gravy but good on spices , little sweet to balance the taste of tomatoes is notable . i recommend having bone less cause this is more exploded with taste
Rating - 4/5
5-Embassy (C.P) This place is located on the inner circle
Rate - The taste this a heritage here , it has not changed over the years . There taste with like of moti mahal but only with little bit more spices
rating - 3/4
