Gwalior is a hidden secret many travelers miss when touring the famous Golden Triangle. This majestic city with royal history of it’s own is just two hours away from Agra. It has all the trappings to attract tourists and foodies alike. In it’s dense architecture shadowed by old forts and palaces, Gwalior is a complete foodie by heart. First thing any native will feed you is their favorite Bedai. Navigate the Naya Bazaar for awesome Bedai accompanied by spicy potato curry and followed by a mandatory helping of Gulab jamuns and jalebis. Trail any Gwaliorite for breakfast haunts and he will usually lead you to a Poha center. For lunch, gorge on like natives do on quintessential Gwalior food, dal bafla, bhutte ki khees, kachoris and dhokla. Madhya Pradesh, where Gwalior is located has a strong Mughal influence. Loosen your belt before tackling the splendor of Mughlai cuisine available all over Gwalior. Melt-in-your-mouth kebabs, spicy rogan josh and pillow-y sheermals, would keep your palate hooked and happy. Chase the spicy with sweet in form of few regional desserts. Mawa bati, malpua, paneer jalebi and imarti will leave you craving for more. Morena gajak are excellent souvenirs to take back home.
