Vada Pav catches fancy of Dilli's foodies

 One item on display board of the swanky restaurent in the fancy sector 18 of Noida catches the eye. Baked Vada Pav. A Mumbaikar on a visit would give it a hard look but is unlikely to go in for a BAKED Vada Pav. Aamchidilli, however, could not resist and purchased one for a reasonable Rs.39 (Bata price!). We have very limited quantity of this item, the enthusiastic salesman volunteered. The 'pav' for this comes all the way from Gurgaon, he said adding that the real Vada Pav of Mumbai can be enjoyed only with the Pav that comes from a bakery and not from giants like Britania or Harvest. That is why we don't keep Mumbai's famous Bun Maska, he said.

The guy had a point.

Vada Pav is indeed catching the fancy of Dilli's foodies. One restaurent even wrote it wrongly 'Vada Paw'! Road side eateries along with Chandni Chouk delicacies also are offering Pav Bhaji and Vada Pav.

Tripti, a tiny outlet in Mayur Vihar is promising Delhiites famous eats of Mumbai's choupatee- Pav  Bhaji, Bhel and Vada Pav. Missal Pav will also be made available, says Sushama, the brain behind the Choupatee festival. Tripti xpects good rsponse from residents of Mayur Vihar where it is located.

The festive season is around the corner and WhatsAp groups in Dilli are circulating offers of Modaks and Ganesh idols imorte from Pen, in Maharashtra. Programmes have already been lined up by popular Ganesh Mandals of Delhi- the Sarvajanik Utsav Samiti, apex body of Ganesh Mandals in the capital.
