Slide 3:

With adventure flowing in my veins and anticipating the thrill of discovering exotic cuisines and the perfect holiday destinations, I decided on a trip to India. I was thrilled to travel through the vast and diverse terrain of an exotic South Asian country which evolved over 5 millennia from the famous Himalayan Mountains to the Indian Ocean coastline. Surrounded by an exciting and exotic history, India is the second-most populous  and the seventh-largest country with over 1.2 billion people .   And then…it was nostalgia time with a great trip to the Taj Mahal , Agra which is about 3.5 hours from Delhi. Inspiring me with its love story, the Taj Mahal or the Crown of the Palace spoke volumes with its passion. I was over-awed by the Mughal architecture and its spectacular features which was illuminated with the fact that this gesture of love was designated as a  UNESCO   World Heritage Site  in 1983. My journey through time began as I traversed the charisma and culture with historic sites which ranged over the Red Fort, the Qutb Minar , Jama Masjid , Humayun’s tomb and other wondrous sights of the city. Delhi took me on a voyage of culinary discoveries where I went on a long yet delightful culinary journey with the popular street food, Mughlai  and Frontier cuisines.

Experiencing the Aromas of India   I looked forward to visiting Mumbai where I grew up playing gully cricket, eating world famous street food, indulging in Golgappes , Misal Pav , Dahi Misal and Pav Bhaji . I went through a much-needed culinary travel, tasting the delectable side of life with traditional Shahi Mughal dishes, Biryani , and Butter Chicken and innumerable fabulous, spicy dishes in Mumbai.   Bringing back memories of adolescent days, I escaped in to the landscape of ‘ Mumbaiah ’ cuisine and re-experienced delicious culinary delights. Taste bud tickling spicy Chaat snacks such as Vada Pav , Bhelpuri ,  Dahipuri ,  Panipuri ,  Sevpuri ,  Ragda Pattis , Kebabs, popular Mumbai Sandwiches including other local favorites were a source of authentic gastronomic pleasures which recalled memorable times.  The Mumbai culinary scenario has constantly filled my soul with scrumptious and robust fare as I took off on a repertoire of Konkani coastal meals, South Indian meals and snacks, seafood, Bori Mohalla cuisine, Mangalore meals, North Indian dishes, Parsi food trails and other regional bests. My all-time favorite desserts were Kulfi , ice golas and incredible mouth-watering sweet concoctions.  

Slide 5:

After buying a few mementos for my friends back in the USA at the Bombay Bazaar, I strolled down the Mumbai Marine Drive and watched the sunset throwing a beautiful aura of light on the great architecture of the Taj Palace. My enchanting and tasteful Mumbai diaries tripped on a delicious vegetarian sojourn at the famous Ram Naik Sadya House in Matunga which served South Indian Sadya or meals, flavored with coconut and authentic South Indian masalas , this great must-taste meal took my palate on a diverse travel.   With ‘ Khau ’ meaning good dish and ‘ Galli ’ or small lane, the Mumbai street food goes on a delectable journey with any number of food stalls displaying visual treats with multiple vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices. The Khau Galli near Churchgate served up the sweet life with sandwiches, Pav Bhaji , strawberry juice, sugar cane juice, milkshakes and other great options for the sugar addicts. And what can I say about the humble yet rich in flavors Bade Miya behind the Taj Hotel which cooked up a storm with kebab and curry dishes which was a treat for the weary adventurer? This was total bliss which added a replete sense of fulfillment.

Relaxed and rejuvenated with a laid-back mode, I touched down in Goa as she beckoned with her lovely beaches, Goan concerts, incredible cuisine, sun, sea and sand. Combined with a bohemian lifestyle and a carefree frame of mind, I set off to enjoy the culture, the curries and the cuisines of Goa. Indulging in fish curry and rice along with other local seafood fare, I ventured into Portuguese flavors which involved Pork Vindaloo , Sorpotel , Calfreal and Beef Xacuti that took the palate to a pinnacle of delicious heights. Robust and satisfying, Britos in Calangute on the beach presented a charming environment with great seafood. While the Ritz punctuated my culinary voyage with prawns in Goan masala , crab cakes, pork vindaloo , chili pork and other supreme dishes, my flavorful journey was quenched with the local brews comprising of cashew and coconut feni . Peppers, Margoa sprinkled my encounters of the tasteful kind with traditional Goan seafood classics and a few global dishes while I let my taste buds go on a sweet journey with Bebinca and other local treats. My diary of travel notes was burgeoning by the time I reached home which created a bubble of expectation and delight as I planned yet another exploration into the myriad colored world of travel.   Enchant the Taste Buds on an Exotic Travel of the Senses with Binoy Nazareth
