Most of you probably guessed that we go to Mumbai Masala pretty often. I promised more pictures, so here goes.

Sabudana khichdi is one of my favorite breakfast items. It’s made of cooked sago and potatoes and spiced with cumin, peanuts, cilantro, and other spices.

A plate of the most delicious bhel puri!

Rice crispies spiced with golden sev, spicy mint-cilantro chutney, sweet date-tamarind-jaggery chutney, peanuts, chopped cilantro, slivers of green mango, chopped tomatoes and sliced onions… all put together translates to the taste of home. All that I missed was the sound of traffic, the heat and humidity, the sheer chaos of Bombay.
