We associate food with its particular fragrance and there is a special aroma in a mix of finely chopped fresh mint, coriander, crunchy green chillies, onions & tomatoes, sprinkled with fresh lime juice and black salt, which reminds me of the sweet, tangy, spicy & flavorful Chaats (savoury snack) we devoured on the streets, in India as kids. My trip to India recently re-awakened my love for Indian food all thanks to L who took me on a journey full of mouth-watering Indian street food, meals & drinks! The very mention of Chaat brings a twinkle in her eyes, L was a constant companion through all my travels in India and is a great cook! I’ve had some of the most delicious chaats, snacks, chutneys, achaars (pickles), papads, sweets and meals in India thanks to her. Thanks L, for showing me the taste of real India! 🙂
Some of my favourite Indian street food from my travels…
To enjoy this food even more watch this amazing video on Indian food – ‘A day in India‘ by The Perennial Plate. I am a foodie but more than cooking I like eating and taking pictures of food. One of my favorites in Food photography is Laxmi’s blog – Pure Vege, which has some simple yet stunning pictures and recipes. Her photography is timeless and ethereal almost heavenly!
