Rains and parippuvada (dal/masala-vada), go hand in hand. Enjoying my view from my window, munching on my parippuvadas while waiting for Amma to make me a cup of coffee.

Of course, the vada pav also has a history.
Land in Bombay in the wee hours of the morning, there’ll always be a vada pav and tea stall open, nearby. Late for somewhere, but hungry… Grab a vada pav. It again comes to the tummy and walley rescue. It is one of those on the move edibles, the Indian cousin of the burger, smaller in size, easy to eat and the best part which I love, nothing protrudes the other way when I bite into it from one side 😊😊 (that does not mean I don’t like burgers. I love burgers, but I love to eat it in the comforts of my room, not caring whether the mayo is dropping on the plate or my tee or that my hands are getting dirty…) At times, I take a knife. Cut the burger up into smaller bits, so it becomes easier to hold in my little hands (oh yes, I have small fingers, people who have met me can vouch for that) so that said, let’s come back to the vada pav.
I wanted to share this video Vada Pav Inc.
PS: If you are in Hyderabad, step into Universal Bakery. They serve these humongous chicken burgers… Yummmies!
The number of pictures I have of the dosa on my phone is evidence that I am addicted to the dosa, any hour, any time, any form … Ha!
The drama queen in me wants to start a deaddiction centre for the “dos-adicts” Just imagine the variety of dosas from different flours, we can come up with to solve the addiction problem … 😊😊😊 any volunteers?
Krispy Kreame has started serving milkshakes. I walked in straight to ask them if the bottle comes with the order as a take away. And the woman behind the cash counter said “yes”. Now you know how I drink my coffee everyday after 😊😊
Flavour wise, their coffee frappe is the best (or whatever they call it) the caramel is too sweet for my taste, and the Alphonso mango is just about right. Mix together the caramel and coffee, it tastes yum.
Breaking the night long fast on Sunday morning with Poori, one of my all time go to items if I have to pick from a menu. I wake up at breakfast time on Sundays whenever the hostel folks serve any kind of poori….
