I have my favourite food stalls at Dilli Haat, but having made a consciuos decision to diversify and try out something new, I was looking forward to eating at the special food stall set up for "The Arunachal Pradesh Day" celebrations.
Unfortunately they only had pork and bamboo shoots and since I had already eaten that just yesterday, at the Nagaland stall on Baba Kharak Singh Marg, I decided to head elsewhere. The Assam stall was closest and I headed over.
Most of the Assamese specialities were fish based but I was in the mood for chicken, so I opted for the Assamese chicken thali (150Rs). Since the manager said that the chicken curry wasn't very spicy, I also ordered a side dish of chilli chicken (125Rs). When I told him I wanted to taste a vegetarian Assamese specialty, he recommended the Kharicha.
Overall the chicken did not impress me much, but the Kharicha. was something new and I think the next time I return, I will try the fish, as that is much more a part of the Assamese diet than chicken.
