Endless chaat at Patiala House, Karama

Last week, we decided to try chaat at Patiala Chaat, and like so many others, we couldn’t have made a better decision. It took a moment for us to find, since it is near Karama Post Office, not exactly opposite. Parking could be a bit of a challenge, but the food will make up for it.

The Pani Puri, Dahi Puri & Sev Puri were to die for. The teekha paani seemed to have a bit of color, but it felt very fresh. The Raj Kachori wasn’t the freshest, and was the only disappointment. I don’t know if Jal Jeera has a sweet/salty option (like Fresh Lime) but theirs was sweet like Shikanji. Everything else was top of the world and I thoroughly recommend this place. Can’t wait to visit again and try their Punjabi Non-Veg mains.

Dubai is all about options & variety. But in this abundance, I’ve struggled to find freshly baked pizza bases. You will find the frozen ones, but I’m not a fan. In the bakery section, what came closest was the flat, Egyptian pita bread. My only worry was if it would stand another round of baking or end up like a crisp tortilla. But how would I know without trying?


  • Pita bread (pack of 4)
  • Tandoori or Shredded chicken (or leftover tikkas or other meat)
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Sliced onions, capsicum & tomatoes
  • Oregaon, Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Butter
