Sufra – a big disapointment

I picked up the Spinach Pide last night for my dinner. Great anticipation to enjoy the meal.

Oh! What a let down. It was not good at all. No comparison to what I had eaten the first time. How could they go so wrong? The pide comes parceled in a box that says that no two pides are the same but one would savour them nonetheless – I differ – and I differ big time. I am definitely not going to order the pide again.

Pani – Puri

Pani puri

I love chatpata stuff and Pani-puri definitely forms a part of it. Available across Mumbai, street food and restaurants alike, its many a persons favourite.

I made this today for evening snacks. Turned out awesome! Its makes taking all the trouble to make the pani, the sweet chutney and the puri filling at home absolutely worthwhile. With just the right amount of khatta, sweetness, and spicy-ness, it satiated our taste-buds. Purely chatpata. I actually gave myself a pat on the back. YAY

 

Chana Bhatura

I love this dish. Its a staple of Punjabis and in Delhi its even served for breakfast.

The surprising thing is that whenever I have eaten in Delhi, I’ve had it for breakfast, followed that with a glass of sweet lassi. Trust me – the glasses there are quite large (often I’ve not been able to finish off the lassi). The chana is served with bhatura / kulcha or puri. I love the kulchas and bhatura there. After such a meal, I always have said NO LUNCH. But come lunch time and I am ready to eat! Can’t do the same in Mumbai – dunno why.

Below is the snap I took of my chana-bhatura. Made it for dinner. Served and eaten Punjabi style – with sliced onions and green chili – yummmmm……….

Looked really good but was very average on taste. Priced at Rs. 55. Will not order it again.

The croissant has a spinach and cottage cheese stuffing. Nice. Priced at Rs. 50.

Its a tall mug of coffee but not very high on taste. Passable at Rs. 70.

Below is the pic of the Chutney n cheese sandwich I really like. Priced at Rs. 70.

I really like this at Theobroma. Its the Lemon Syrup Cake at Rs. 90. Its got no creamy topping, just the lemon syrup seeped into it. Its yummmm….

 

Sai Bhaji tikkis

Sai bhaji tikkis

These tikkis are made in all Sindhi homes. When Sai Bhaji (see post dated 9th October 2013), is left over after a meal, the bhaji is made into tikkis. This is the first time I made them. Turned out good. My left-over bhaji was converted into a breakfast fare.

This is as nutritious as one can get as the bhaji has spinach, fenugreek leaves, carrots, french beans, onions and a few more veggies.
