Because pani puri season is all year round

On days when this space is populated with my unflattering image, I have often advocated food as a form of therapy.

If I were to tell you about the merits of eating fresh fruits and raw veggies — merits of which I have no doubt — I would risk stating the obvious.

I would also, I believe, and as you know to be true, be denying you of Life’s little pleasures — like, for instance, the sheer voluptuousness of melted cheese. Let me just say that I think of my work as service, service to you, fellow pleasure-seeker. It’s been almost two years, since I first dropped by Nanak Sai in Khar for a review.

I recall being startled by the amount of oil they used in their food. Silly me! Though, I haven’t yet forgotten how thrilled I was to discover that the puris in the pani puri are filled with potatoes and moong sprouts. One of my life’s many missions is to scout for places in the city that hand out those puris, minus mushy chickpeas. Do ask for a plate if you happen to be in the neighbourhood. It’s cheaper than therapy!
