On a sleazy Sunday afternoon with a stressful week gone by brings in mind a good lunch wrapped with a deep afternoon siesta. This exactly happened to me on the Sunday with the weekdays gone by. The only thought which came up was something good to eat and that too a bit of home style. The chorus of heart and head was why not Bhata, Mansha Jhol and Salad, ooh it was too much but still the thought lingered in my mind.
The ubiquitous ‘Dal makhani’ is the 20th century Indian concocted recipe and has given birth to a many Indian restaurant cuisine – ‘Moti Mahal’, ‘Dal Bhukhara’ and et al.
Moti Mahal which started off in Peshawar made its foot print in New Delhi after late KundaLalGujral migrated during the partition.
The Odiya’s are truly identified with rice & fish and the “Mahaprasad” of Puri. We come from the land of Jaganath Dham and are proud of ourselves – as we like our food, laid back life with festivity linked to our tradition and culture.
Of late we have seen quite a number of bakeries have sprung in the city and they are tapping the gullible citizens through the wellness platform. The wellness industry is a huge one more so as people are getting more health conscious and they want to live young.
The ‘Karamonga’ is very popular in the state and we see it in the daily market of the city. Most of the times we see it in heaps on the roadside vendors especially near the exhibition ground and near unit IV market.
