Among hundreds of South Indian restaurants in Delhi, Chidambaram’s is the oldest one. Founded in 1950, it is being run by the 3rd generation of chefs.
We try out Dahi Vada and Chilli Idli in this video.
The Dahi Vada is more on the sweeter side than spicy and it’s very different from ones you’ll find elsewhere in Delhi.
The Chilli Idli has gunpowder in it, which, as food reviewer Rahul Verma says, will shake you!
You can find varieties of Idli, vada, uthappam, dosa, and rice here and it is open from 8 am to 10:45 pm.
