Food Travels - Part 1

As promised here are some food pictures from our recent India trip. I don't take camera to restaurants generally, so I had to make a point to remember it specifically. There were times when I missed my camera while eating delicious food. :)

I also picked up some delicious recipes including a dal khichadi and bengali dal with radhuni. But before I get carried away, here's brief description of the of the food photos.

The pictures are in no particular order of the trip.

1. The cocunut water was enjoyed on a hot day at Chamundi temple in Mysore. I had forgotten the clean, mild and refreshing flavor of coconut water.

2. Bikanervala - I was able to indulge my spice cravings during the chat outing one evening. Along with Tokri chat (in later pic), we also had some panipuri and raj kachauri. And their aloo chaat was spicy, tangy, and ooh so yummy.

3. Andaaz-e Lucknow - The mall food was a big surprise. I was expecting a similar fare like US - generic chain food. So when someone suggested going to mall to get some food, I looked at them wondering 'why would I do that'? But I was wrong. There is so much to choose from. The Andaaz -e Lucknow picture is from Pacific Mall in East Delhi. Along with biryani, their chole bature were superb!

4. Cafe Bikaner - is a part of Bikarner House, Rajasthan Tourist department and has a cafe and a sit down restaurant. We all ended up ordering Paneer Tikks Sandwich which was delicious. I am going to try it out with whole wheat. The coffee and tea wasn't that good.

The next part will have bangalore sweet shop, idlis in banana leaves and fish... stay tuned :)

On another note, we received the Yummy Blog Award from Zainab and Meedo, the two sisters who blog at Arabic Bites. Check out their blog for delicious goodies. Thank you, it means a lot!
