We marched to the Khichda vendor who was at his last portions. Still enough for us and a few more hungry people. At rs. 10/- per plate it is perhaps the most satisfying Rs. 10/- a non vegetarian will spend.
Khichda is made of broken wheat, dal,meat with some added spices, served topped with a dollop of desi ghee, a good squeeze of lemon and chopped fried onions with some fresh mint leaves.

Next to that was the famous Milk Sherbet. A glass with around 45 ml of concentrate that tastes like apple to some and butterscotch to some (i vote for apple), topped with milk and chopped fresh watermelon. If you are a sweet loving person, you can easily have a couple of glasses and forget the rest.

The next stop was the tawa roll guy. Here guys forget the Nan sandwich and go fof only the chicken Baida Roti, far superior than its mutton sibling), the Mutton Roll and tyhe piece de resistance here was the Tawa Bheja. Awesome. We must thank Shaun for reading the menu plastered obscurely somewhere on a hidden wall which spelt it out. This can be a one stop destination for food too. Tawa stuff, like rolls and baida roti, bheja......

For the Vegetarians (Egg-e-tarians if you must), this place is good too. Paras had a nice, meatless potato and baida roti and seemed to enjoy it as well.

Fully satisfied but still not wanting to leave without the customary Malpua and Phirni took us to Noor sweets, a lane away, situated right in the heart of Chor Bazaar. What a different place Chor Bazaar looks at night. For those who didnt know this we are at all times a few lanes away from Chor Bazaar when in Bohari Mohalla.

The Smiling gentleman (i think it was Salimbhai) welcomed us and insisted we sit before ordering.

Guys, how about Thursday, 2nd September for the next one? Please confirm. Let's do this, can't wait another week and we can't go from Friday - Sunday cause it's just too crowded.

Or anytime from Monday - Thursday next week.

Weather is hardly reliable. It might start pouring again in the evening. Plus I have something at home tonight, can't move that. So let's go with tomorrow? So what if it's a holiday... We should be fine. What's the holiday for, btw?

THursday evening seems perfect.
I doubt traffic will be that bad in the evenings.

Just that we would need to avoid places where Dahi Handi crowd will be more. BUt idoubt that the case in teh areas that we will be going.
