Street Food Delight @ Railway Station

On World Photography day i was thinking hard what to post on my blog. And then a bulb flashed above my head and my heart screamed “FOOD”. Of-course! That’s what we do when we celebrate all good days (it’s another thing that i do not wait for an occasion to dig myself into food gluttony) Local train stations in Mumbai, though most of the times are the places where you would not like to stay for long (because of the simple body crushing crowd) but is somewhere, most of us (Mumbaikars) spend our daily lives.

A dash of batter coated peanuts, finely chopped onions and fresh tomatoes, some spicy green chilli, dash of zesty lemon , some puffed rice and all …

A dreamwalk through the gourmet lane of Mumbai!

What’s your Spicy Affair?

When someone asks me, what are my qualities or what is that one word that can describe me, I stand still with eyes *blinking*. Yes, simple it may sound but it is hard to assess ourselves. One Friday morning (when I am usually energetic in anticipation of the weekend πŸ˜‰ ) I thought to myself – β€œIf I was a spice, which one would i be?” While my mind was busy looking for the answer I popped the question to many friends and here is a couple of interesting analogies I heard from them: **Cardamom – because it blends in all dishes (sweet, salt, curry, Tea). So this friend of mine is very amiable, mixes well with whosoever she meets. **Turmeric – because it heals and brings good to people. This friend of mine is one of the most caring women. You sneeze and she would be at your door with medicines, hot soup and a blanket πŸ™‚ And here is my Spicy affair: I think I am a mix of Cinnamon and Star Anise. …
