All-time favorite Indian street food of Indian Bloggers!

I asked few other bloggers which was their favorite Indian Street Food and here is what they said:

Misal Pav at Khao Galli (Treat Street) Colaba

Jyoti from That Mumbai Girl says –

Misal Pav at Khao Galli (Treat Street) Colaba is my favorite street food as it brings the best of Maharashtrian food.

Misal Pav is considered to be healthy food as it is made of moth beans. A layer of “farsan” (salty appetizers) is put over the cooked moth beans and is garnished with coriander leaves & lemon.

There are red and green chutneys mixed in it.

You eat it with a buttered Pav (bun).

This dish is also amongst one of the spicy ones. The taste of Misal pav is zesty.

I have relished the taste of this dish since childhood and even today I can’t resist the aroma that fills up my senses.

fried purple yam & Thandai

Neha From Travel Melodies Says –

I had visited the famous Nathdwara in Rajasthan. Nathdwara is considered an important pilgrimage centre by the devotees of Lord krishna.

In this religious place where there is Shrinathji Temple, I was pleasantly surprised to see the streets bustling with bursting with colorful wonders to satisfy one’s palate.

There was fried purple yam on one side and cream color Thandai on the other.

Purple yam also called ‘Kand’ in Hindi is popular in this area and is cooked as a snack or main dish.

This simple fried yam sprinkled with some salt and spices is very delectable. To be honest, I resisted eating it first, but after tasting it I couldn’t stop myself gorging on it.

The other thing we couldn’t miss trying was freshly made Thandai.

Thandai is an Indian cold drink made mainly with milk, almonds, sugar, fennel seeds, cardamom, rose petals, watermelon kernels, and saffron.

I was fascinated by the person grinding all the dry ingredients on a grindstone and then mixing the paste with the milk.

Thandai was perfectly made to quench your thirst and energize you on a hot day.

So what are you waiting for?? Start planning for this spiritual and gastronomic journey.”

My tip to eat street food would be to only eat from the place where most of the people are eating because chances of having stale food would be minimal and of course it would be yummy as well.
