Amritsar Street Food

A visit to Amritsar invariably includes two things—paying your respects at the Shri Harmandir Sahib (Golden TEmple), and gorging on all the delicacies the city dishes up. The locals love the street food in Amritsar, and the city is swarming with street-side vendors selling the freshest, hottest and richest versions of everything from a refreshing glass of lassi and sugary, sweet halwa, to buttery paranthas, spicy gravy and the famous stuffed kulcha's. Here’s our list of rich Punjabi delicacies in all their fatty splendour—so get your hands dirty, and eat to your heart’s content. You’ll probably pack on a couple of extra kilos, but we guarantee it’ll be worth the weight.
