No can resist the taste of the crisp aloo chaat, the spicy bhel puri and the evergreen golgappas! Delicious! Aren’t they? But when it comes to hygiene, is there any street food joint that you can vouch for? We have constantly been eating street food ignoring the unhygienic methods being practiced by the vendors since ages. FSSAI has stepped in to ensure that the street food we so lovingly enjoy should not compromise on hygiene. In 2016, FSSAI launched ‘Clean Street Food Hub Programme’. A few of the famous eating joints in India have already been approved by the FSSAI after they abided to all the proper guidelines, and a few joints are in the pipelines. Here is a list of street food joints where you can eat whatever street food you like without worrying about hygiene.
