A good place

A good place

I would like to say a proper street food place and how a street food place should look like this.
This place on the photo has some sort of standard off cleanness and give this taste of street food and the atmosphere. The atmosphere is very important, you should be on the street while eating street food and not in a mall.

I would not buy pani puri from a man with a small table, which he take it with him. That sort of street food is more unhygienic. Where does the man prepare the pani and how? Just feels dirty.

Never again

Never again

So, today my friend and I had huge craving for street food at 11/12ish. There for we went to different places to see if they were open, but no. All places were close!
There for we went to Phoenix mall. In Phoenix mall it is possible to get street food at chart bazar. If I remember right.
It was a very big disappointment. It did not taste like street food. It was indian street food in Western style. So bad.

Too much food

Too much food

Okay, maybe you do notunderstand how much food I had for dinner. Especially with this photo with only two seve puris.

Well, then I can explain. First I had some rasma in the mess (got protein), then my friend and I went for chart, street food pani puri (to the best place they serve pani puri in Viman nagar.Every place make different taste). On to off that I gave my friend company for dinner. We had mushrooms masala and naan bread. So much food but it was a very nice evening!
Can you understand how much I ate?
Also, who can say no to street food or not give a company to a good friend?

Best wada pav

Best wada pav

If you ever want to eat wada pav in Pune, then you have to go to one place. This place is famous for it. It was a small street food place and become huge.
Seriously this place sell many, many and again many wada pav every day.
As you can see, it is a popular place.

Some people says the man sell over 1000 and 1000 wada pavs. It says the police are collecting the plate from the street to count how much tax the seller need to pay. Because he is selling food black, like every street food seller.
How much is truth, is something I do not know.

I did try the wada pav there, but I could not say it was the best one. I do not like all this oily, white bread and potato food. It is just carbohydrates and unhealthy.

However, this place is in Camp, on a smaller street near to SGS mall.

Good street food

Delhi Street food outside the Red fort.
Street food is nothing for people how are concern about the hygiene or stay fit. Because it is very oil and they sell food next to heavy traffic road with allot of pollution, but also how often do the man wash his hands? More or less never.
Indian street food is something special, I have not had Indian street food any where else, no restaurants that I have visit have street food on the menu card.

I have not idea what this dish calls, to point out, this is a Delhi street food and I have not seen in Pune.
The dish has a white bread with allot of butter, chickpea, in masala with a topping of onion. 
Served on a peace of a newspaper, is to walk around with.
I can also point out, it was very hot for me. After 5 months in India, I am still not use to the chilli.

street snacks

In the Delhi, I have only seen this sort of street food. Selling cucumber peeled for street food. Not in Pune or any where else.
After a a long day running around, the feeling of refreshing comes up and the other street food is not the most refreshing one. So, why not a cucumber?
I do not think I ever had that testy cucumber for ages. For sure, Delhis weather is much more pleasant then Pune.
Pune is still around 25 degree, pure summer weather in Sweden. But everyone in Pune says it start to be little colder, 27 degree and it is cold?

This this was in CP. I would say this street food is in similar to Pune Bhel, but still very different. Everyone should try Indian street food, because I think that is a part of Indian food.
The worst part is that the street food is hot and burning the mouth.

Street food next

Typical street food place. My host brother and me went to a Satara Road where there a group street food seller.
There we order S.P.D.P, some of the ingridiens are the same as there are in Pani puri. Seriously street food is not at all hygienically but probably that is why it so taste.
S.P.D.P was for 30 rupees.

Dear to try the food?
It says more tasty food less hygienic. May be it is truth and that can be the reason why many tourist get sick.
However perfect snacks deep fried food with chai.

When I took up the camera, there are so many of the Indians smiling and want to be in pictures. They want many times to show what/how they are working with and want me to take many photos till they are happy.
When they are finally happy they give bigger simile and wick the head.

Can I get one more Bhel?

Can I get one more Bhel?

One of the best thing with India is the street food. You go out with some of your friends in the evening. Just like many other Indians. I promise almost all places for street food will be crowded and you will meet many of your friend. One of my favorite food calls Bhel. I can say so far, I going to miss Indian street food when I am back in Sweden.
