The origins of the first dhabas are apocryphal, but it’s believed that they first thrived in the mid-20th century on the Grand Trunk Road, one of Asia’s oldest roads that connects Central Asia to the Indian subcontinent, starting in Peshawar (now in Pakistan) and ending in Bangladesh, passing through Amritsar, Delhi .Two types of food are served in the dhabas – non-vegetarian cuisine (which is the most popular) and vegetarian fare termed vaishno dhabas (where food is cooked in pure ghee or clarified white butter). Dal makhni is a popular dish in the vegetarian dhaba.
