Amdavad’s hottest chai pe charcha places

Among the many things that define the lifestyle of Amdavadis, its chai culture would probably hold a spot on top of the list. The cutting chai is something that defines every Gujarati's morning, and even for outsiders who are living in the state. While coffee rules the lives of the rest of urban India, it is the humble other-half of the popular brew (tea, of course) that has made its place in the hearts of every Amdavadi. Students and young professionals, who are otherwise seen stationed at funky cafes, are hooked to that one cup of masala chai at a kitli (roadside tea stall). As the world celebrates International Tea Day on December 15, we bring you some popular kitli hotspots, that are an integral part of the city.

Lal darwaja

What started as a small chaikikitli surrounded by graves of Sufi Fakirs, Lucky Tea Stall has grown tremendously over the years becoming a landmark in itself. Its wall boasts of an MF Husain painting and the jugalbandi of a chai from here and maska bun is much in demand. The chai's best had with extra milk and a dollop of malai.

Doordarshan tower crossroads

Strategically located at a huge corner of the crossroads, this kitli starts in the wee hours of the morning and serves piping hot adrakwalichai to chai-drinkers who throng this place from Drive-In to Sudarshan. Students, professionals, workers and senior citizens (who've just finished a jog) relax here with a newspaper in hand and a chai in another. A regular masalachai costs `7.

University road

Sitting on the footpath on the turn outside LD College of Engineering is a chaiwala, serving adrakchai to students and professionals. Right beside him, one can also get some healthy, breakfast with a plateful of kanda-powa and khaman-chutney. Priced at `7 for a masalachai and `10 for a plate of powa, this is a budget-friendly place for early morning commuters.

SG highway

While most kitlis start early in the morning, here's one 'kitlikafe' that believes in tapping in the evening energy of. ApnaAdda is a mini tea wagon, serving different flavours of chai in a kullad, priced at `15. This place opens at 6.30 pm and is surrounded by young people till it shuts shop at 11 pm.

Off CG Road

Standing bang opposite a popular eatery, surrounded by highrises and a college, this kitli has found its comfy spot in one corner on the street. But the highlight of this kitli is that it not just serves tea (at `7), but also hot coffee, served at `8.

Ambawadi crossroads

Tucked away in a corner on the crossroads connecting Ambawadi, Panchvati and Gulbai Tekra is this small joint, thronged by professionals from all around the area. At any time, one would find the chaiwala furiously pouring out cups of tea, handing it out to the long queue of people, while also packing some for offices.

NID, Paldi

Parked right outside the design institute is Rameshbhai's tea stall. But owing to the number of outsiders who throng the place throughout the day, the kitli also serves coffee. The aakhi cha is priced at `15 while the cutting cha is `8. Coffee is priced at `10 and `20 for half and full cup, respectively.

Outside Atira

One of the more popular kitlis of the city, KK Tea Stall comes with a complete package for people looking for a cup of steaming hot chai with a butter-lathered fried masala bun. This kitli attracts college students and professionals, as well as people who come for a morning walk. The stall remains open from 6 am to 7.30 am and then from 11 am to 11 pm.

Vastrapur Lake

Standing between a number of stalls serving breakfast to joggers early in the morning is this chaikilari, serving masalachai to people after their morning or evening jog. While a young kid pours out cups of tea to customers quickly, a vendor sits right next to him, handing out newspapers to people who like to know the latest while sipping their morning tea.
