Taste of Indian Street Food through Chandni Chowk in Delhi

One of the things I like to do when I travel is to try the local gastronomy. And of course, if you travel on a budget you have to forget the luxury restaurants of the category. This does not mean that you will have to eat sandwiches every day, or that you will eat poorly and less healthy food. So, are you ready to go on a journey in taste?

In fact, if you are planning a trip to Delhi, eating good, nice and cheap street food is easy and yes, be prepared to discover the magical world of stalls, each of which specializes in a different dish of the local cuisine! In front of a few, you will find benches to sit and eat.

In Indian street food, the spices are the heart of the food. They provide a unique color and flavor, and that's why each cook makes his own secret spice mix, and this is how the magic in each dish is produced.

Eggless Orange Loaf Cake Recipe

Tasty and juicy, oranges have always been a favorite among the fruits. Orange, besides being a tasty fruit is also a healthy fruit. Orange can be an important part of our diet. There are many reasons why eating an orange a day is a good idea; they are low in calories but full of nutrients, they promote clear, healthy skin and can help to lower our risk for many diseases and conditions as part of an overall healthy and varied diet.

The most common way of having an orange (besides eating it raw) is drinking orange juice. But we can think of other ways of eating an orange or better to say incorporating its flavor in our food, right?

Yes. We can do that. And a simple way of doing that is baking AN ORANGE CAKE. There are many varieties of orange cakes. Sometimes we decorate an orange cake with simple whipped cream frosting. Sometimes, we cover the entire cake with an orange marmalade.

But today, I’ll be sharing an easy and simple orange loaf cake recipe. This cake doesn’t require any frosting. The good thing is that this cake tastes good even without a frosting or any sort of decoration.

As stated above, this cake can be eaten along with a cup of tea or as a dessert. You can also take this, along with other food items, on a picnic. This is perfect for family trips or a trip with your friends.

This recipe is an eggless recipe. For this recipe, we will need a cup of orange juice, flour, sugar, oil, baking soda and baking powder. We will also add a tablespoon of orange zest, which will enhance the flavor of the cake. Whenever you take out orange zest, remember not to grate the white part of orange. This would make the zest bitter in taste. Always grate only the outer orange colored layer of an orange for the orange zest.
