Desi, local and most authentic food from the “Bazaars” of the city where it originated from always delights us. Be it Masalas, Pickle or Chutneys, we always crave for most authentic food. Don’t you agree? It’s a soul satisfying experience when you eat the most authentic and best Alphonso mangoes straight from the farms of Ratnagiri and Devgad.
I am sure you will agree that the most challenging task for Airport Authority personals is to search for that Mango pickle jar, Hand ground masalas and chutneys, Puliyogare gojju and Appam Podi which is hidden in your luggage amidst the clothes. And then you argue and fight with all the security, just to tell them that the mix which is so aromatic has been secretly packed by your mom as you don’t get the original taste everywhere. The poor Security person has to gulp his saliva and act harshly even though all he wants is to taste it once. Finally, after a small skirmish, he will let you go, leaving all the passengers around you imagining the flavour.
