Nostalgia

Got to watching food network- again! And this guy Zimmern- who goes about eating some rather bizzare stuff (I think the series is called Bizzare Foods) ends up in Delhi. This episode makes me so nostalgic for some diarrhea inducing pani-puris, some greasy awfully good moghlai dishes, authentic paneer palak and other choice Indian dishes. He even tried some 'mocha' and some banana trunk curry- when will I eat this stuff again.
I cannot believe this sudden hankering- this from a person who cooks very eclectically and rarely something completly Indian. For me, dinner needs to be fixed up in fifteen minutes flat- and very few dishes in Indian cuisine would qualify.
Anyway, here is wishing for some delicious street food soon......

I ad , do not forget the greasy , tasty , yummy fish/chicken kabirajis of Kolkata, the fish fingures and the fish fries, not to forget again the yummy chicken and beef roles of Nizam, the biriyani of Siraz, the chaps of Royal....
Mouth watering, aren't they? Well I add one more, the awesome Baked Bhetki ( whole fish ) I had this time with your choice of sauce at Silveroaks, Kolkata

Come visit me in the bay area - lots of choices for desi street food. Perhaps not as authentic since the primary seasonings of dust and grime are missing, but it's still plenty good!

BTW, I referenced your blog in my blogpost from today (6/21) -- check it out.
