Gone are the days when we would get a few bucks from parents to spend on a mela visit. The small amount used to hold the magic of maths and decision-making of when and where to spend.

And what better time to relive those moments than Dussehra? The food, toys, the various rides will give you enormous joy, and it gets doubled this year due to the one year gap in the celebrations thanks to COVID-19. So we decided to take a challenge of Rs 100 to binge on food items at Dussehra Mela in NOIDA, Uttar Pradesh.

Stay tuned to find out how many items we manage to eat for under Rs 100.


Golgappe, the king of street food.

Call it Phuchka, Golgappe, Paanipuri or something else but the spice trip it offers to your taste buds, is something which can't be expressed through words. Binge on Golgappe at just Rs 20. And do not forget to take your sukhi papdi at the end.


Refreshing Meethe Paan.

After the spice trip, what's better than Paan for refreshing the taste buds. Meethe Paan loaded with Gulkand and seasonal fruits at just Rs 20 is an absolute delight and a must-try.


Everyone's favourite Chole Bhature.

And after the starters, what should be our main course?

If it's about street food, Chole Bhature is the answer. The soft fluffy Bhature with spicy Chole is the ultimate happiness at just Rs 30.


Cotton Candy aka the OG

After starters and main course, we still be left with Rs 30. And what's better than Cotton Candy to revisit our childhood days? The sweet and flossy Cotton Candy is one of that food items which will make you nostalgic at just Rs 20.


Melt-in-mouth Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun, an old-school dessert and perfect food item to spend the last Rs 10.
