Many sleepy towns in North India boasts of bustling markets during the day, morphing into famous Khau Galis in the night. Take Muzaffarnagar for example. This quaint town in western side of Uttar Pradesh is an untapped territory for foodies. Surrounded by wheat fields and sugarcane farms, Muzaffarnagar is a settlement combining two major communities of India, Hindus and Muslims, both of which effect the food culture of the city. Muzaffarnagar sees a rich blend of both these communities. Most of the natives practice vegetarianism, although, there are many who still prefer biryani over dal any day. Locals have a great fascination for paneer pasanda dish, made with green chutney, mashed paneer and mixture of nuts. Shaab deg, a dish using turnips and mutton balls infused with saffron, are two regional favorites originated from Muzaffarnagar. Chole bhature is the most sought after breakfast after aloo kachori. Post lunch, the natives scurry along hunting their preferred chaat shops in hopes to sample aloo tikki, gol gappe and dahi bhalle. A visit to Muzaffarnagar is like North India on a plate. For sweet component locals feast on desserts, rabadi, halwa, ras malai or laddoo. The region of Muzaffarnagar is quite fertile, offering an abundance of grains, fruits and vegetables.
