I have never gone to Bombay…I don’t even know how to go there..The only thing I know is about its cuisine..I know that Bombay is famous for its street food..I came across these street foods dishes from one of Tarla Dalal Cookbook namely “Mumbai’s Road Side Snacks”..I have bookmarked so many recipes from that book to try out..
I love to eat street food dishes..The place where I live don’t have that many street food shops..It does have a few portable ones and I have tried their food couple of times..They don’t use best quality ingrediants..They never touch expensive stuffs..They don’t even serve in fancy bowls and saucers..But I don’t know how those dishes taste great than many huge restaurants..
So I hope you can try it ASAP..Here you go for the step by step recipe with pictures..
