Nagaland Stall, Delhi

Nagaland Stall,
Baba Kharak Singh Marg

Passing by Baba Kharak Singh Marg after finishing some work at CP, I realised that it wasn't very crowded and hence would be a good time to check out some of the food options at the temporary stalls set up as part of the CWG festival spectacle.
The first stall to greet me after I had clicked pictures of the wedding procession made from jute ropes was the Nagaland stall. They only had pork and bamboo shoots on offer (other than the customary momos), but it smelt good so I ordered a plate. They charged me 200rs for a few pieces of pork and curry with rice and some Naga pickle on the side.
The pork broth was light, not heavily spiced, but still full of flavour from the meat and bamboo shoots. More of a soupy broth than a curry, but extremely tasty in a soul food kind of way. The Naga pickle was more of onion garlic relish, but a spicy one at that which made it a good counterbalance to the pork.

It was quite filling and I really couldn't try out anything else, at any of the other food stalls which included the usual suspects: parathas, chaat, kulfi, idlis and Bikanerwala. Zambar from Ambience Mall has set up a stall with a limited menu.. The Rajasthani stall was selling a nomadic thali with bajre ka roti, gatte ki sabji and some other specialities and I hope I get a chance to go back and savour that before the 14th. (when these food stalls will pack up)
