Mumbai street food

Not that I don’t like pasta- I simply love the traditional Italian serving. As it is, the Italian dishes are quite suitable to the Indian sensibilities because of the spicy flavor. But when we visited India last year, we got to try the “Indian” version of pasta in Mumbai.

For the uninitiated, Mumbai has a great roadside snacks culture and this is one of the things that I miss the most now I am living in The Netherlands. Coming back to the pasta – it was done with spices, tomatoes, and lots of veggies. It looked great and tasted delicious as well. Since then, I have replicated the success in my kitchen too!!
