Chaiwalas are mainly people who prepare, sell or serve Indian tea on streets or small roadside shops. They boil a mixture of water and milk, add tea leaves and then strain the tea into containers or a tea kettle.
A lot of chaiwala tend to come in from different parts of India and run small businesses in major cities. Chaiwalas usually serve tea in a small glasses or unglazed clay teacups (Kulhar) but in recent years they have started to serve tea in plastic cups. Traditionally chai was made in brass vessels; however that appears to be changing in some places.
The Indian prime minister Narendra Modi is a former canteen contractor and not a chaiwala . He occasionally used to serve tea to the customers of his father’s tea-stall outside the Vadnagar Railway Station. His chaiwala background was mocked by Mani Shankar Aiyar, a senior leader of the then ruling Congress Party. BJP seized on this opportunity to emphasize the humble background of Narendra Modi, by opening a number of “NaMo Teas Stalls” and organizing an public discussion campaign termed “Chai Pe Charcha”.
In response, former Chief Minister of Bihar and RJD Chief Lalu Prasad Yadav also claimed to be a former chaiwala.

Although street food is common all over India, street food in Mumbai is noted because people from all economic classes eat on the roadside almost round the clock and it is sometimes felt that the taste of street food is better than restaurants in the city. Many Mumbaikars like a small snack on the road in the evening. People of Mumbai cut across barriers of class, religion, gender and ethnicity are passionate about street food. Street food vendors are credited by some for developing the city’s food culture. Street food in Mumbai is relatively inexpensive as compared to restaurants and vendors tend to be clustered around crowded areas such as colleges and railway stations.
