This image is doing the WhatsApp rounds over here with the caption “Mumbai variant called Pakodacron has arrived.”
This is a spoof on the Covid Epsilon Variant as shown below.
I thought that the pakodacron was quite creative and funny. I also went down memory lane to my Mumbai days when near the shops of my main dealers, a snack bar on the platform of a suburban railway station called Masjid specialised in freshly made hot Moong Dal Pakode. This used to be sent for to accompany cups of hot chai during discussions.
The treat was not served like the image above in nice dishes but came wrapped in old newspapers and were accompanied by green chillies dipped in lime juice and coated with salt.
Remembering this old treat I have decided to get them made at home tomorrow just to go on a nostalgia trip.
Does the pandemic situation give raise to such developments for you too?
