mouth-watering food I’m Thomas and I’m Sheena and we’re Chasing a Plate we hope you’re
hungry let’s eat we’ve been in Delhi for a little over a
week now and we’ve been filming some amazing delicious food oh hey, we just walked past a cow, cows in India are sacred it is very common to see cows just
roaming the streets like here we’re just in a residential neighborhood so we’ve
been zipping all around Delhi filming a bunch of different foods the food scene
here is so varied so diverse and today’s gonna be no different we’re gonna be
eating a bunch of delicious foods we’re off to find some chaat which are savoury snacks this is the chaat shop that we want to
visit this green one here and I can see actually all of the chaat inside all of
the different ingredients that make up chaat when you order chaat it comes with maybe sometimes ten or fifteen different ingredients it’s always
very delicious namaste one bhalla papdi, yes, dhannayavad we can get up right close to the gentleman
who’s making the chaat he’s got all sorts of different ingredients we
ordered a ballah papdi you can see here some crispy fritters he’s popped some
rice krispies on top some lentils and chickpeas and then on goes that dahi
or the curd the creamy yogurt wow looks swadisht pomegranate too swadisht dhannyavad
whoa look at this beautiful plate of colour let’s head over to this
leaner and get into it this ballah papdi is absolutely stunning I mean look at
that for a plate of food chaat generally in India is beautiful but this just
takes the cake for me it is so so pretty this stack of
ingredients here and I really like the stall this green really makes it stand
out the guys sitting in the window here crowds of people coming in
and man alive this looks so good so we’ve got a ton of stuff
on here so the ballah papdi is the sort of the two main ingredients it’s just
two separate words so under here is a lentil ohh look at that it’s been all
crushed up so a lentil doughnut basically and that’s been crushed on and
then we’ve got these crunchier bits so they’re basically just like a wheat
chip a little deep fried crunchy chip which are gonna soften up because
they’re covered in the curd and then in the colour you can see in the curd so
you’ve got the green and the brown so that’ll be a tamarind chutney the brown
and probably a coriander chutney the green then we’ve got these
pomegranate seeds on here oh look there’s a chickpea these pomegranate seeds which
are just the most stunning deep red colour and oh there’s a chilli there hanging
out as well and then on the top here I believe that’s some ginger it looks like
some freshly julienned ginger on top oh man bit of everything oh I’m covered in it that is unbelievable there’s potato in
there as well I got a little rice rice puff like a rice crispy oh and that was
one of the chips I had that was super crunchy the yogurt’s very fresh that’s very
cold the yogurt it’s got some really good spice chilli and he sprinkled
other spices on there so it’s got a lot of levels of spice on and this pomegranate
seeds just pop in your mouth let’s get some more with potato pomegranate seeds
but particularly I want a bit with more ginger I really wanna get that flavour oh wow
the ginger’s a very mild flavour actually so you’re getting up a
beautiful heat from the ginger but it’s not too overriding it’s been cut very
nice and thin eating chaat like this is such a great experience and it’s a real
North Indian thing so what you find is there’s actually a lot of dishes and
they often have the same ingredients just things are a slightly different
shape or the way they combine put the combinations together slightly different
so this restaurant does have a big menu of different dishes they do this is
their specialty so this is that the real famous one but they do a number of
different things you can see right here in the window actually it’s sort of all
the different styles and these little puris these are puffed ones whereas
I’ve got flat ones in here so different styles of the same thing and they combo
them up and man the flavour is just unreal unbelievable
and you’ll find these little stalls all over the city
always snack style so stand up and eat them
quick eats, fun eats, texturally always mixed up so lots of different textures
and flavours going on so a quick hit of great textures flavours it’s a very cool
stall wow we caught the metro to another part of
town we have come to Old Delhi I love this part of town it’s probably my
favourite part of the city it is a bustling area full of laneways
there’s always people rammed into the laneways shopping and of course
eating now I can see our stop up ahead it is a tiny little hole in the wall
selling pakoras or lentil fritters there’s a lot of people in front of it see what I mean? It is just it all go let’s see what they’ve got frying up this stall is actually set quite far back into this
area here they’ve got a big tray filled with all these deep-fried goodies namaste do you have any kalmi vada pakora? Perfect yes please
they’ve got all sorts of deep fried snacks and the guy over there is
actually he’s not frying some at the moment but he’s got a big tub of hot oil
and he’ll be making the fritters and popping them in there when this
needs a top-up I’ve got a bowl of deep-fried goodies in
hand the stall is just over there it’s a really cute little stall the
walls are sort of black from all of the oil that’s come up from the deep frying
and whatnot it’s got a ton of people standing around it and I love how Old Delhi is
just full of life it’s really chaotic in a really beautiful way and it’s just
constant, constant people walking past constant bicycle rickshaws people carrying stuff on
their heads so I’m just going to press against the wall here and get into this bowl
of treats so he gave me a real mix of things this here is the pakora so the
deep fried lentil fritter it’s got some leaves in it some spices and whatnot
and then I think these are deep-fried wedges of sweet potato some more lentil
balls of some sort everything is in a lentil batter they had a a big pot of
the batter up the back there and it’s very golden yellow in colour and what he
did was he sloshed a whole lot of green chutney probably coriander chutney
over the top let’s just get into this sort of chip here it’s got some of
that coriander chutney on it I thought it was sweet potato but it’s actually just normal potato very creamy that lentil batter is quite thick
and crunchy has a lot of substance to it I really like that chutney it’s got
a great heat to it beautiful coriander flavour hmm this pakoda is covered in
green chutney I’m gonna go for this one it definitely needs the chutney because
the fritter itself is quite dry but with the chutney it’s perfect you can taste a
little bit of chilli in there I think the green is a very mild green chilli very savoury quite salty this is a great set of little snacks we’ve got here
and I just love the chaos so we’ve got the bicycle rickshaw going past followed by
the motorbike and then behind Thomas is a guy with a massive stack of stuff on his
head it’s just chaos I love it we’re now wandering the streets of Old
Delhi and it’s just so full of life it’s such an incredible place to be I
mean everywhere you look there’s something going on these guys are
pushing a huge cart of flour or something
oh oh now I’m in everyone’s way got some guavas coming through I’ve lost track of Sheena, Sheena is stuck by a bike okay Sheena’s in the middle of the road I’m over here
things are crazy crazy she’s literally stuck in the middle of the road
come this way wow so Old Delhi is just crazy it’s so full
on and it really makes you feel alive because it’s as a traveler it’s just
insane it’s an amazing place to visit with incredible food I love wandering
these streets this part of Old Delhi is a great part of
town to sample Mughlai cuisine the Mughal Empire actually ruled
northern India from the early 16th century right through to the late 18th
century they were a Muslim dynasty and obviously the food culture has retained
to this day it’s very meat heavy very rich so all the biryani all the kebabs all the kormas and whatnot you can sample all of those foods along this
stretch now we’re actually going to stop at this place we have walked past it so
many times and every time my mouth has absolutely watered assalamualaikum my mouth has just watered because what they serve is fried chicken assalamualaikum and you can see here look at the fried chicken if you’ve
subscribed to our Channel and if you’ve watched our videos before you’ll know that I’m
an absolute fried chicken fiend I can’t resist it so today’s the day tonight’s
the night look at all of that fried chicken and all of the all these
chicken pieces going into that hot oil Wow this spot is so cool so the restaurant is
open and all of the cooking is taking place at the front of the restaurant all
out on the street facing the street and it is all go they’ve got a huge pot of chicken
which is marinating in a quite a thin spiced filled marinade and then it’s
just going straight into that hot oil now they only serve two things here oh three things they serve fried chicken fried fish and rotii to go
with it so we ordered half a fried chuck look at it all on the bone just cut up
and then we’ve got two really thin roomali rotii to go with it look how
paper thin that roti is and then there’s some sauce here for the
chicken to be dunked into and then we’ve got some fresh onion I’m gonna squeeze
a ton of that lime onto that onion let’s get into this chicken I want to grab
this drumstick here look at how crispy it is and all of that spice which is
coating that chicken I love how it’s just all on the bone I’m gonna dip it
in that sauce that comes with it holy moly that’s good
it is so tender and very juicy still that chicken I love how the marinade is just
crisped up enough it’s not it’s not a batter it’s just crispy on that
skin it’s got a great spice this sauce is quite spicy so in chilli heat I’m so happy to be getting a
fried-chicken fix crunchy juicy tender spicy oh this chicken is unbelievable mmm this plate is gonna disappear very
rapidly I reckon let’s get a pile of these fresh onions these are gonna be
perfect actually I love it cuts through the richness of the fried chook
refreshes your mouth and then you can dive straight back in to that oily crispy
delicious fried chook fried chicken feast done now we are heading for some dessert and dessert is literally right across the road which is very
convenient system let’d just navigate our way across the road so much tooting and
honking now this is what we’re after it is called shahi tukda it’s a
traditional Indian sort of like a bread pudding it’s got loads of different ingredients
and it looks so beautiful how beautiful look at all that cream
delicious we’ve got the shahi tukda and this is a very interesting
dessert because it’s a bread based dessert they take bread and they
deep-fry it in ghee and then they add a whole lot of sugar syrup it’s got
cream all over the top dried fruit they layer it all up and now he’s just
working it in this pan and he’s scooping this sugar syrup up on it breaking it
down because it’s hot that pan is heated so he’s just constantly moving
it and making sure it doesn’t stick getting that sugar syrup all through it
and look how beautiful it looks so you got some cream on top really nice and
hot oh it’s swimming in that sugar syrup Oh yum oh really good sweetness the bread has taken on the the flavour of the ghee as it’s been fried so it’s got a
butteriness but then because there’s so much sugar syrup amongst the dish and
being poured over it now there’s this buttery and sweetness you’ve got these clashing
flavors and it’s so good and that cream on top just adds a whole other
dimension and so does this dried fruit I’m not actually sure what that red
dried fruit is but adds a nice tanginess to the dish I’ve just asked the guy what
the fruit is and he said it’s cherry so that’s why I’m getting that real um
sort of a tanginess from it and there’s really big pieces oh it’s um perfectly put together
so it’s got some spices in there as well so everything going on in there
is really great it’s just a perfect combination and I really love the
stand it looks so beautiful sitting here with all the red bits on top and
the white cream in there very pretty to look at as well what a thing to have this
real prettiness in amongst all the chaos they go together really well it’s
fantastic

  1. YEOW! We did it guys! 100,000 SUBSCRIBERS! We are so thrilled we achieved this milestone together with you all- we value this community immensely. Thank you for encouraging us and sticking by us. Onwards! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜ Big love, Thomas & Sheena

  2. Had to press against the wall for this one! Love how you capture all of the energy of the surroundings while you eat. Itโ€™s been especially noticeable in this India series

  3. That is an insane fried chicken setup! Looks so nicely marinated before being fried up. Smaller menu the better ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  4. Wuheyyy congratulation on your big milestone, ohh I'm sooo happy to see that number of subscribers, the next 100k is on it's way๐ŸŽŠ You put so much effort in this channel, with such great passion for what you do. Having so much strengh while you're going through the medical things you both had to fight with is inspiring, also that you never lose your positivity. That helped me keeping focus on my own fight with health and never give up while it was exhausting (it's "all good" now๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰) Oh and I really appreciate the content you create, that you show things you like and not "shocking bad" things just for the views. It's growing like naturally and I'm sure it will go from now on, holding fingers crossed, until you finally can make a living of it, and live your dream. You really deserve it. I will keep sharing videos with friends, a lot of them love you content too๐Ÿ˜ And my father is a big fan as you know, enjoy watching episodes with him.

    Oh btw, I'm happy I remember your old episodes even they are gone๐Ÿ˜ Like cycling through the vineyards or your old mexico series, jumping over the camera, it's awesome to see how you grow and to follow you. Learning so much from you means a lot for me. I wish you just all the best and hope you're happy ^^//

  5. Tired of the same over crowded 'Old Delhi' places all vloggers seem to visit. Surely, there is more to Delhi that this. There is a singular lack of originality in most vloggers visiting Delhi/India.

  6. So happy for ye both. Always amazing content great food and locations and you both are so lovely to watch. As a long time subscriber Im made up for ye, ye deserve it. Heres to 200,000. No pressure lol

Ya know what I'm back on Team Thomas!!!๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก Still as always a fantastic vlog great video. At least in Poland you won't be run over by (accident).

  15. Iโ€™d be so afraid of getting lost but use guys got it! The chicken! Wow. OST important is to congratulate you both on reaching that 100k mark. Well deserved Mates!

  16. I was dying to eat the street food before i went to Delhi,but when i saw how filthy and unhygenic the place was when i got there,i had to stay away and i still got Delhi belly.

  17. That chaat knocked it out of the park. This has been your best series. You showed us the best of Delhi, in EVERY aspect!!!! And the music was awesome Thomas! Thank you both for taking us along. Your hard work is so appreciated. I have said it before and I swear by it…. CHASING A PLATE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!! Love and hugs. On the edge of my seat waiting to see where we get to chase next!!!

  18. Wohoooo watching it in morning, so not getting hungry at night again hahahaha. Hoo that fried chicken loook delicious!!!

  19. India must've changed since I last visited. Back then, ordering any meat or raw veg was basically ordering a plate of 'shit yourself to death'

  20. I just love each and every one of your viedos Shena and Thomas and I almost missed this one as it was uploaded just after midnight my time here in Australia ๐Ÿ™ glad I caught it in my notifications. Love this Indian street food series, I hope you two are travelling well and are safe with all the sickness's going around.

  21. Other than making your viewers crave for the local delicacies that are mouth watering could you provide some friendly advice on how to stay safe in such big crowds where things that you least expect can happen. For instance your wallet and travel documents can go missing and you only realise it only after you are out of the crowd. Just a thought that passes my mind. Cheers.

  22. Congrats on 100k! 1 million will be here sooner than you think. 100k is the main, most difficult milestone to hit, after that your subscribers will expand exponentially very rapidly!

  23. Congrats on having 100k subs just wondering would you do a separate video congratulating on the milestone and talking how you reached this goal.

  24. Just watch the video and the chaat looked gorgeous yum yum ๐Ÿ’•
    Once again congrats on 100k and many more 100ks to come ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’•
    Couldn't have happened to a nicer couple ๐Ÿ˜˜
    God bless both of ye love from ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ชโ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

  25. Superb… mouth watering…
    Try to go down south to kerala and njoy the food there..

    (A reqst… pls make the subtitle transition a lil slow ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š)

  26. chook – Visually I'd rank your fried chicken in order 1) Berlin, 2) Seoul, 3) NYC, 4) Delhi. ๐Ÿค”
    pakoda – Thomas said you two had zero duds during this trip but I'm thinking the pakora may have come close. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I love pakora and actually do not mind if it hasn't retained max crispiness but definitely prefer fresh from the fry. Mine are usually carrots, onion and something green leafy. Mmm, mmm. Dipped in whatever curry I ordered that day.
    cycle rickshaw – Gent was mildly curt but take a look back at the cotton seed milk stall. That customer was actually perturbed. Poor Sheena getting shooed away. ๐Ÿ˜‚
    Thomas juxtaposing the pretty bread pudding with the surrounding chaos is perfect. ๐Ÿ‘

  27. I hate blogger BUT I really do enjoy you guys!! Why not show the after effects of all that non hygienic street food. Cures for Delhi belly

  28. Stop making cows on street a big deal. Just of you didn't know, we created roads for our convenience. In a way, we are in the way of animals…not other way around.

  29. can u guys visit our Andhra Paris TENALI for a street food video its a famous snack of our town n our town snack also famous all over Andhra Pradesh not only that more also

  30. It's 2:30 am here and I am drooling ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ…. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

  31. Sheenas idea of Utopia; FRIED CHICKEN ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—. There was no way in the world Thomas was getting a look in on that crispy fried plate of delicious chook!! I think second prize (it was a photo finish) went to Thomas and that Chaat!!! That would have to be the prettiest plate of what is usually a messy looking combo. Its not easy to make Chaat look gorgeous and get all the flavour and textures in one bite but heck the finishing touches of pomegranate and fresh ginger slices took it to the next level. The opening scenes of the cow just melted my heart (and my furry friends also), l wanted to reach in the screen and pat her. So cute and well filmed to set the experience. Awesome๐Ÿ‘

  32. I was so fortunate and blessed to actually have a taste of shahi tukra at an Indian buffet in Perth, yes PERTH, many years ago. The name of the dish was not revealed that day and at that time I wasn't into cooking or baking yet. As you know Indian desserts in buffets in OZ are quite variable so I was really lucky that day. A few years later I managed to find the name of the dish and made it myself at home. I used 100% ghee to cook it (most sweet manufacturers in India or elsewhere would normally use a mixture of ghee and some oil) and it was divine. It is really a dish to behold. As I said before, I can't take cow's milk so maybe the best option would be to do a lactose-free one in the future, but for now, I can do without this dessert ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜„

  33. How do those men sit so close to those huge vats of oil, can't be comfortable. Another great video. So happy you surpassed 100k subbies, its going to just keep growing.

  34. Hi Sheena I'm sure those cows were also in the quest for finding delicious food๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚I'm extremely interested to try these delicacies when I visit Delhi this year. I'm an expat living in Chennai southern India so Delhi is quite far away from here

  35. Hi Thomas and sheena you should come try places like Hyderabad and chennai too. Just explore south india its different from north india

  36. @Chasing a Plate – Thomas & Sheena …amazing videos..i like the way sheena says Hello in every regional language..would be great if you could do a video of top 5/top 10 foods that you tasted in india…ppl love it

  37. You guyz are created world record by commenting on each comment….๐Ÿค
    WTH๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
    happy journey ๐Ÿ‘

  38. It looks like Indians do not believe in wearing gloves when serving foods to the public. In a country which lacks proper hygiene, not sure if I want to throw dice with street foods. Curious to know if you had any bad experience with street foods in India

  39. Did you know that, India has the largest hemorrhoids patients in the world, at age of 40 to 65 , three out of Five are affected by piles because of the utterly oily & spicy delicacies

  40. Keep your wallet safely while walking in Delhiโ€™s street . And also have to be careful when you guys walking in lonely area . You may rob by some of few dirty people who are hungry for a everything ..
