Our friends, Madhu and Kushal, took us to Chatkazz last night for a night of Indian street food. It was fantastic! We are thinking of bringing Dad here. He would love it.
It is such a busy place. With all the hustle and bustle it actually feels like you are in India!
They have chairs, menus, pens and order slips outside where you wait for a table. While you’re waiting, you choose what you want from the menu and then scribble it down on the order slip.
Once you are inside, food just keeps coming so fast; you wouldn’t believe. Here we are, just before having incredible street food…
And, here’s what we had:
Sabudana Vada (above)
Chhole Bhatura (above)
Pani Puri (above) They are one of my old time favourites.
Dahi Puri (above)
Khaman-Dhokla (above). Another old-time favourites of mine.
Chinese Bhel (above): This was everyone’s favourite. I have just tracked down the recipe this morning. I will make it.
Chatkazz has a separate sweet shop. Those colourful sweets were so inviting when we popped in before dinner. I mean, look at them.
So, we bought some sweets after dinner but Kushal had already picked up some jalebi before dinner. He says jalebi is the first one they run out at the shop. Jalebi is one of my favourite Indian sweets. Thanks to Kushal I came home with some.
