Foods of Juhu Chowpatty Mumbai India

Pao Bhaji Stall... Pao means quarter Loaf of Bread (Pao = Quarter. In Mumbai Hindi Pao means the bread you see at the back.. just below the red tomatoes... tthe small round curves are actually one piece of pao each.. all currently joined but before cooking is torn off and heated in butter.. the vegetable is cooked and eaten with the pao.

This is the Bhaji or the Vegetable cooked and eaten with Pao.

Pani Puri (Name used in Mumbai) or Phoochka (Name used in Kolkata) or Gol Gappa (used in North India). It is nothing but a small round "Puri" (Round Bread made from Wheat Flour by kneading with water and a little oil and then deep frying in oil just enough to make them swell). This Puri is stuffed with boiled potato (mixed with some spices as per taste) and then filled with Tamarind Water to eat in a gulp!
Of course the sweat of the server will make it tastier!!  ;-)

Bhel Puri. this is a Mumbai Special. But here you do not get just Puri. In fact here is a mixture of many things.. hey!! better eat it.. it is very difficult to explain the cooking in English when the items are NOT at all English, I say!!.. Just know these are all for the Tongue !! !!

Juices anybody? Or Syrup Water????

Now here is a decoration for you below!!

The fruits above are sour and tasty.. I forget the name!
The ones below are of course Raw Cut Mangoes with Red Chilli.
