Chai, garma garam chai. Le lo chai. Garam garam chai.
Since when have you started selling chai, Button? Or are you inspired by the profession because our current prime minister starting his innings selling chai? Are you harbouring thoughts of what I suspect you are harbouring?
No baba no! What ambition can I think of! I was expecting that you’d take the hint and fry some samosas and bhajias to eat with our garma garam chai this evening.
Talking of samosas, did you read what the newspapers had to say about the humble samosa?
Why? Did the paper report that the samosa is not humble any longer?
Exactly. The samosa has beaten butter chicken to the post of becoming the number one food for Indians as revealed by Uber Eats’ fearless food forecasts. While health remains a serious concern, the samosa has emerged as a top raking food with Delhi consuming the maximum, followed by Bengaluru and then Mumbai. And the strange part is that it is not just a favourite with Indians alone. An astounding number of Australians ordered 1,07,475 samosas over the past six months. Of-course, the range of samosas available is huge.
Meaning that you could eat samosas with a range of fillings not just the typical filling of potato and peas or potato and cauliflower but also chicken, mushrooms and even noodles.
Food has become so malleable now that chefs all over the world are trying to put together dishes which were unheard of and unthinkable some years back.
