Bazaar Food

For many of us, one joy of being in India is the food. Earlier I wrote about my bun omelet lunch at Char Dukan. On Saturdays we frequently walk in to Kulru Bazaar and the Agarwal Vegetarian Restaurant (right across from Inder’s Bengali Sweet Shop, a favorite haunt of Woodstockites over the years). The cook sits out front in the mornings until early afternoon making fresh poories. They are served with a potato curry and mashed pumpkin curry. The latter has been a long-time special favorite of mine. Sometimes they serve chickpeas as well. The price for two poories and the curries is Rs. 35, about $.70 at the current rate of exchange. Dan usually has one extra poori for another Rs. 10 ($.20). It is delicious!

Here are a few more shots of bazaar foods – samosas awaiting cooking at Hapurwalla Sweet Shop in Landour, a general snack/sweet shop along the Mall, and fresh paneer for sale in Kulri.
