Ride to Sindhi Paradise

The trip to Ulhasnagar would be an easy 75Km journey (one-way), but it will be worth it. Ulhasnagar, being a Sindhi hub, has a lot of Sindhi influence on the food. The streets are filled with vendors selling chaat like Butter Papdi and patties during the evening hours and a morning over here calls for some delicious Dal Pakwan. Read on, to find out more about Ulhasnagar’s specialties that one must try!

Doli Nasta House

Located near Ulhasnagar (West) station UNR 3, this place is amongst the top must-visit places in Ulhasnagar. The place opens early in the morning and is open till late evenings. Imagine two different menus for mornings and evenings. A visit in the morning mandates eating their Dal Pakwan (Rs.25). In the evenings try the Dal Samosa (Rs.20), Soya Bean Patties (another Ulhasnagar specialty for Rs.24) and Dal Sandwich (Rs.25).

  2. Thanks for sharing the Sindhi specialities. While these are prominently placed near gol maidan, there are host of other shops whose dishes would only pamper the taste buds. For eg a pani puri house next to Paramount theatre UNR3, Premi Pakoras UNR4, Sindhi Chole Pattice UNR4 next to Himalaya Shoes and others.
    It would not be exerggeration to state that UNR is excellent place to enjoy mouth watering Sindhi dishes. Although the article covers only veg dishes there are host of shops which specialise in NV.

  3. Good article. Since it is not too near a road/rail guide suggesting places to visit as per shop hours & clean washroom halts keeping in mind a long journey from Mumbai would be a good aid to make a trip to our very own usa
