I have realised that our food habits are defined by what you have grown up eating. Of course you change them as and how you see fit for your overall health and nutrition but what remains close to your heart is what you have eaten in your growing years with your family and friends. Delectable Indian Street food, Vada Pav is one such food that I have eaten all my life and can still get me drooling.
My 2 ingredients easy to make Immunity booster is one such addition made to my diet so that I get that healthy dose each day in my plate.
I have grown up eating a variety of street foods in the khau gulley’s (food alley’s) of Mumbai. Out of them is my favorite, the most popular Indian street food, Pav Bhaji.
Easy And Delicious Chickpea curry is one recipe which is simple, requires less of preparation and is food for the soul.
amarind chutney is a must in many Indian snack recipes, in fact it is made and stored for a few days or even weeks so that a lot of time and energy gets saved when you are preparing these specific recipes where you cannot do without it. It is very simple and easy to prepare and yet it is very high on taste and tanginess to uplift even very dull food.
This popular street food is available all over India and I cannot think of even 10 days going without making some form of Idli. I have grown up eating this for breakfast in house, on street in the south Indian snack counters as well as in the most expensive of restaurants. The preparation is served with lentil and vegetable stew along with coconut chutney.
Stuffed rice savory cakes makes for an ideal meal. This is a advanced form of humble south Indian snack idli.
One of the most popular street foods of Mumbai is Sev Batata Dahi Puri which simply is puffed puris stuffed with sprouts, potatoes, yogurt and onions with a topping of chaat masala, a drizzle of green and tamarind chutneys and a generous amount of sev.
My favorite street food list is too long but you have to start somewhere. So I decided to start with Ragada pattice. Ragada is hindi for white peas curry and pattice is nothing but mashed potato cutlet. This recipe is simple, very filling and parts of the recipe can be pre made and kept To be assembled later for a huge gathering.
The baby potato with yogurt preparation is very simplistic yet full of flavor. It can be made in a few different ways and equally tasty. You can also use normal potatoes and dice them instead of using round baby potatoes.
