Hot grubs for a rainy day
Make this monsoon doubly memorable by gorging on some sumptuous snacks as you watch the rain pour outside
With the monsoon in full swing, it’s normal to feel those hunger pangs. The Guide lists a few interesting items that one can enjoy on a rainy day:
Hot kebabs and Indian breads
Hot kebabs and Indian breads from the Indian Grill Gallery (at Mad House Grill) are a good option for a rainy day. The warm and rustic restaurant located at the centre of the city offers some of the best kebabs in town and Indian breads to go with it.
The meat is succulent and prepared in a unique way so that the taste is absorbed right down to the bone. “People can come and enjoy an unforgettable experience; we also have a live tandoor which also attracts patrons,” said Seher Azar, owner of Mad House Grill.
Pune’s favourite Misal is also in demand during the rainy season. And if you like your Misal spicy then head to Katakirr Misal. They have three types of Tarri (spicy gravy) that one can opt for -- spicy, medium spicy and light. Owner Vijay Aavati pointed out that people love to eat Misal after getting wet in the rains and while a lot of people generally opt for medium and less spicy Tarri, the demand for spicy Tarri goes up during the rainy season.
Try the Dhapate
For some like Sneha Kulkarni, a city student, eating Dhapate, a mixed grain bread, served at Wadeshwar, FC Road is a must-try. “These are a very healthy option to eat during the rainy season. It is filing also and we love its taste,” she states.
At: Mad House Grill, Koregaon Park; Katakirr Misal, Karve Road, opposite Garware College; Wadeshwar, FC Road.
