Talking about one’s hometown, and what it means to a food blogger
is all at once personal, intimate and nostalgic. That was the state – Karnataka
– where I hail from.
Davangere Benne dose, Shavige Idli, Bisibele Bhath, Vangibhath, Obbattu Ugadi Meal, Set Dosa, Akki Rotti, RagiMudde, Yennegai-Jolada Rotti … all my favourites ! What’s your fav from that state?
Although we cook Karnataka food almost everyday (our cuisine
is mostly South indian with Tamilnadu and
Karnataka cuisine), choosing a dish close to my heart proved to be
a humongous task ! Till of course, this Chaat (or street food) came as an epiphany. Pani Puri,Bhel Puri, Pav Bhaji, Dahi Puri, Samosa might be available in every part of
India and abroad, but for those from Karnataka and especially, Bangalore Masala
Puri has a special place. I love this Chaat to bits as much as the other Bangalore speciality – Tomato Slice Chaat
Unlike other chaats, the process is tedious. But it can be made
with everyday materials. Just a little planning and you have a winner on hand.
