You go to a place not to have the same food that is found anywhere and everywhere. You are the types who want to get into the skin of the destination through its local food. If that is true, then you will love the local flavour that Haridwar has to offer. Here are some of the most amazing ones.

  • Jalebi
    One of the most favourite Indian sweets, Jalebi resides in the heart of everyone living or coming to Haridwar. Best when served with hot badam milk, it can also be eaten alone with equal amount of mouth watering. Enjoy it as soon as it gets out of the sugar syrup, its crispy, it's tasty and the flavour will surely stay in your mouth for a long long time. One of the most favourite breakfast and evening snacks items.

  • Badam Milk
    Enjoy a kulad (an earthen pot) of hot milk warmed with almonds, raisins, pistas, kesar and cardamom seeds for the refreshing experience that is going to take its place among the top 5 things to do in Haridwar. Boiled in a large open pan, the milk is continuously warmed with all the dry fruits and is served in an earthen pot (kulad) that gives another dimension to the taste of that milk. The milk once put in the pot is garnished with the milk cream (malai) which adds N number of stars to the richness of the flavour of this drink. A kulad of this milk is easily available at around INR 15 per kulad.

  • Lassi
    This healthy and refreshing drink is made by blending yogurt with water, salt or sugar, and spices until frothy. Served at various street shops and Halwai joints, it is usually served in tall steel tumblers topped typically with oodles of thick and fresh Malai (cream).

  • Kulfi
    You cannot help but close your eyes as the cold and creamy Kulfi explodes in your mouth releasing wondrous sweetness. Available in various flavours (Malai, Kesar, Pista, Rose , Elaichi and Mango) and the other kinds, its silky texture leaves a rich aftertaste lingering behind. It is the most popular frozen milk based dessert in India, made by thickening the milk so that its denser and creamier and then freezing it. Traditionally, Kulfi is served with Falooda (noodles/vermicelli), but you can also try Matka Kulfi or Kulfi on a stick like an ice cream bar.

All these food items are available very easily at several shops on the streets on the Ghats. Also you can try different kinds of pickles and churans that are available at several shops in Haridwar which are a good option if you are really planning on bringing in the flavour of the place back home.
Enjoy all the items and you will love them equally! Trust me, you will.
