My friend, Sunita Rajwade of Mumbai on a high came up with a flavourful idea of #FlavoursomeTuesdays, where we share some flavoursome memories. Ooh, is that too much of flavour in one sentence? I hope you don’t mind, because I loved the idea and so thought of sharing this post…a memory of a rainy day.
Mumbai rains bring along with them not just waterlogged streets, traffic jams, and life to a standstill, they also bring along the most tempting of food that makes you forget all the pain. All we need is to spot a plateful of hot and spicy onion bhajiyas (fritters) and we instantly fall in love with the monsoon!
I do enjoy the onion bhajiyas, but more than that, I relish the sabudana wada,(sago patties stuffed with mashed potatoes, green chillies, roasted peanuts, cumin seeds, salt) with the coriander chutney. I am drooling even as I type this post! It’s raining outside, and it’s October – a freak, if you ask me! I wasn’t very pleased when I saw the dark clouds looming large on the horizon. I missed my evening walk today, too! But all of that was forgotten the moment I sat down to type this post!
I had prepared these sabudana wadas a couple of months back, when it was pouring like crazy and I had a desire to tuck into these hot beauties. I gobbled up these wadas like there was no tomorrow and still had an appetite for some more! How I wish I had soaked some sabudana this morning. I would have been enjoying a plateful of these even now!
Anyway, I can at least gaze at this picture and indulge in some nostalgia, and also relive those flavoursome memories! If you too love these pearly babies, you are welcome at my place to have these to your heart’s content!
