There are so many types of street food in this weird and diverse place called “world”. One thing that's a norm in some parts might be taboo in others. This diversity is also in what we can eat for a fixed amount. In our country, one can get a plate of Chole Bhature for Rs 100. But have you ever wondered what people get in Rs 100 in countries that have no Chole Bhature? A place with no Chole Bhature may seem like a dark place at first glance, but don't worry! There are other tasty snacks as well.
Find below the street foods from around the world whose prices in their respective currencies are approximate to the value of Rs 100 in India!
