Chaa - Simple North Indian Khana

When my non-foodie friends rave about certain places, I'm quite keen in trying them out as those places turn out to be great in my experience. Recently a friend of mine was going gaga about this place and their snacks. A week later, I had to baby sit a group of kids and they wanted to have something different for dinner other than pizza. Now that's a rare request as the kids always stick to Dominos. I decided to order from Chaa through Swiggy. Their menu is very simple and limited. Few starters, rolls, roti, 2 types of subji and stuffed parathas. First time I ordered murukku sandwich, bhujia sandwich, cheese bullet, aloo paratha along with roti and special subji. I called them up and enquired about the special subji which was paneer butter masala on that day. I ordered an extra portion of it. Order arrived in 30 mins piping hot neatly packed in aluminium foil tins/covers/sheets. The kids were already hungry and I know I'll be crucified if I delay further by clicking pics. I tasted few of the items. Murukku sandwich and the bhujia sandwich were absolutely fresh and weren't soggy. Murukku sanwich was crunchy. It was less spicy to my liking but was a huge hit with the kids. The bhujia sanwich was decent. I absolutely loved the cheese bullet. A mix of boiled potatoes with spices and crunchy peanuts, in a thick and crispy bread outer layer cut into two halves and served with a generous amount of grated cheese and chopped onions was a delight. I loved the addition of peanuts as it took the dish to a whole new level. Parathas were soft, well cooked and taste was homely. Sabji was a little bit thin but worth the price. Paid 670 bucks for multiple servings of above said items.

Cheese Bullet

Corn Cheese Balls
From then on we've started ordering from this place frequently. I've also tried their corn cheese balls which is another star in their menu. Same outer layer of bread with cheese minced green chillies and corn creates a medley in the mouth. Their thali which comprises of 5 roti, dal, subji, salad, curd and pickle. For 85 bucks this is simply value for money. The aloo subji that came along with the thali was very good. I like their lime mint cooler too. Tasting fresh with a balance between the lemon and mint and not too sweet, this one was very refreshing.

Murukku sandwich, bhujia veg sandwich, corn cheese balls, cheese bullets costs 60 each which is absolutely value for money given the taste and quantity.
