Popular Indian Street Food, Pav Bhaji

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.

Steamed Rice And Lentil Cakes (Idli)

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.

Ragada Pattice (Potato Cutlets drowned in White peas gravy)

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.

Baby Potatoes In Yogurt Curry The Kashmiri Way

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.

Asian Veggie Bowl With Boiled Noodles.

This recipe has been one of my favorites ever since I first tried it a few years ago. I like the flexibility that this recipe gives me in regards to its ingredients. Each time I change the veggies that goes in it depending on what is available in the pantry. Last time I prepared the veggies with brown rice and this time I will go for boiled noodles. So what is great about this dish is you need not have all the specific veggies, you can go ahead with one or two short or more.

Palak Masoor Dal (Red Lentils Curry with Spinach)

Red lentils and spinach go very well together and cook in a jiffy. They require very few masala’s to enhance its flavors and the recipe is very uncomplicated. It would be great for people who are always in a hurry.

Raw Banana Fritters (Kela Vadas)

The fritters can be eaten as a snack or as a complete meal accompanied by a salad. It is a vegan and jain starter. With tamarind chutney, It tastes all the more delicious.
