Saturday Treat!

One of my favourite street foods is Chhole Tikiya. The link will take you to a recipe by one of India’s great chefs Tarala Dalal. It is simply curried chickpeas and potato cutlets with chopped onions, tomatoes, green chillies and fresh coriander leaves.

Since the Chinese Virus entered into my life, this was one of my few indulgences and I would not miss any opportunity to have it. I therefore had it made for today’s lunch.

To add some interest to it, I also had freshly made potato chips which are locally made by a chain of shops specialising on it. I prefer this to the packaged stuff so readily available in all shops.
This is the shop from where we get the chips. You can see the stove and frying vessel on top right in the front. This shop is just 400 Mts away from our home.

That is not all the goodies that I had for lunch. My priceless daughter in love had sourced something that I had never had before, made by the family of a friend of hers.  Please click on the image for a larger resolution.
In case you are not able to read it clearly, it is Musk Melon Ice Cream. What a flavour! If you can possibly get hold of it, I strongly recommend it. I have every intention of having this treat many more times this summer before the season is over.

Needless to say, I over-ate but, have no regrets whatsoever.  I am grateful that at least such indulgences are not denied to us during this lockdown.

  1. Wow…. you also follow Mr. Trump to name the virus.
    I love to eat chicken curry. In Indonesia, curry was known from India and very popular here.
    One Indonesian food that is similar to curry is “gulai”. Is gulai also available in India?
    It seems both Indian and Indonesian foods are rich in spices.

    1. Yes, Indian and Indonesian cuisines are both rich in spices. Gulai contains both meat or chicken and vegetables whereas in India, curries or either purely vegetarian or non vegetarian. They however taste and smell the same.
