Chole bhatura at Sapthagiri in Jersey City, NJ. (c) Alex Lisowski
Many thanks to Robert Sietsema at the Village Voice for this week’s find. He took a few food writer friends to Sapthagiri in Jersey City last year after reviewing it in the paper, and the food was just wonderful.
I loved the paneer makhni, the coconut uttapam, the samosa chaat, and this wondrous, wild chole bhatura— calorie count be damned. Thanks to Vinny and Praveen for letting us into their kitchen, and to co-producer Alex Lisowski for smart shooting, editing and directing.
