Bombay or Mumbai is often referred to as the 'City of Dreams'! It's the city where people from all over the country flocked and continue to do so in the hope of hitting the big time; To 'live the dream'. I strongly believe that you can remove a Bombayite from the city but you certainly can't take Bombay away from them! (I hope that makes sense)
That enduring spirit along with the 'live and let live' attitude is captured beautifully in the song 'Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahan' from the 1956 bollywood classic "C.I.D.".
Being a melting pot of cultures, the city has some exceptional food influences. And being a Bombayite, I take pride in each one of them... lets face it - it's all about the food with Damn Good Curry!
So, without further ado, here's to Bombay! Chin chin.
* Ragda Pattice (V) (Bombay)
Potato patty topped with Ragda (Dried peas cooked with spices to form a sauce) onions, fresh coriander, crispy sev with sweet and spicy chutneys.
* Dal Wada (V) (South Indian)
A South Indian fried snack of coarsely ground lentils with fresh herbs and a hint of chilli. Served with a traditional fresh coconut chutney.
* Samosa (V) (Punjabi)
Lightly spiced potato and pea samosas served with a coriander chutney that has a kick to it.
*Chicken Frankie (Bombay)
This quintessentially Bombay dish could be confused with a Kathi roll, but the similarity ends there with the appearance. It is boneless chicken semi dry curry topped with vinegar and onions wrapped in a egg washed roti. The perfect street food.
*Paneer Potato Frankie (V)
Egg washed roti filled with potato and paneer.
*Mutton Dhansak (Parsi)
Without a doubt one of the most popular Parsi dishes known. Essentially a mix of lentils, veg and meat slow cooked with spices.... what's not to like!
*Sai Bhaji (V) (Sindhi)
Classic sindhi comfort food made with lentils and veg. One of the key ingredients is Dill.
*Kadhi (V) (Gujarati)
Every part of India has it's own version of kadhi (Buttermilk is the key ingredient). This one is sweet spicy and has the tang from buttermilk.
*Koshimbir (V) ( Maharashtrian)
A salad accompaniment.
*Baath ( Goan)
A traditional dessert made at Christmas by the goan Christian population. The cake is made with freshly grated coconut and semolina.
