Day 4- Blogging Marathon
Yesterday, since I am at the mercy of the pati to bring me back from work [thanks to the fractured toe], we were darn late to leave office.
I was starving as 2 chapatis and some subzi was my last meal of the day at 1 pm. We often eat off the street food vendors at Koramangala 100ft road. You shall be amazed to find the most amazing momo’s, gol gappas and 2 stalls of 99 dosas.
Why is there so much rush on these stalls? Is it the charm of eating under the tree? Is it the ingredients lined in a neat array for the easy reach and identification? Is it the 2 ladle full of dosa batter? Is it the “secret” spice mix which is orange in color? Or is it Asli Makkhan..Amul makkhan which is spooned generously on the dosa while it is being made?
Actually it is none of the above. It is the charm of getting to make a dosa of your own flavor that plays on human mind. Who would not mind their favorite things in one? Yesterday someone ordered a mushroom, baby corn, palak and paneer dosa. Seriously….you will eat THAT?
I have been a loyalist, I never try anything other than the things I like at the stall. I stuck to my matar masala and pav bhaji masala.
At the end of a day of hard work, what can be better than the choice of food you would like to devour. After living through the day under protocols, social networking, policies, procedures… Who does not need a welcome change?
99 dosas provide this feeling of freedom on choice, being in control and a satisfied tummy.
Dont be ashamed of making your own scary concoction at one of these places. You never know when the choices shut their eyes on you and all that shall be left is protocols, social networking, policies, procedures…
