DESCRIPTION
Established sometime in the 1930’s this eatery is one of the oldest chaat shops in Lucknow. It still commands its prime position in Lucknow’s world of chaats. Here's what a foodie suggested: It’s a good idea to start with pani ke batashe (UP’s version of paani puri / gol gappe / puchkas), then move on to their palaki (chaat made of spinach leaves or palak patta, in which palak is coated in thin besan batter, deep fried and topped with dahi-chutney) and finally wrap up with ‘the‘ dahi bada, which has a thick, slightly sweet dahi and the softest badas in Lucknow! 
SPECIAL INFORMATION
  • The pani ke batashe at Ram Narayan Tiwari are served with different types of sweet and spicy pani.
  • The batashe themselves are made of flour and potatoes (unlike Delhi where semolina or sooji is also used for the shells) and the stuffing is usually mildly-spiced mashed potatoes & boiled chickpeas. These would be closer to the ‘puchkas’ of Kolkata.
