Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my friends and family! I decided to celebrate this festive week with pictures of a festival fit for a foodie like me. Yes, losing the extra, extra pounds has been put on the list of resolutions for 2015:)
India has a wealth of cultural, religious and folk festivals which vary from state to state, urban to rural and religious to patriotic. Food has always been a huge and central part of all the traditional festivals.
Of course, the fairly recent ‘Food festivals’ are just fun events with some theme or the other, featuring foods from different states within India or international foods. But the foodie in me was thrilled when on a recent visit to Pune, there was a Khau Galli festival. Khau Galli literally translates to a street full of yummy treats.These are streets lined with food carts that serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and all kinds of desserts, mostly at reasonable prices. They are very popular with young and old alike.
I want to share a glimpse of the food carts with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. In this two part post let me start with some breakfast foods.
Do let me know if you would be interested in replicating any of these in your home. I would be happy to share my recipes for them.
Enjoy the flavors of the season!
