By definition, Street food is prepared or cooked food sold by vendors in a street or other public location for immediate consumption.
Hence, very often its unhealthy and comes in the "Junk Food " category.
But, still it reflects the culture, eating habits of the particular place and community.
It maps out the geography of the people, telling us history of their ancestors in far off places.
I am sharing A very popular Street food of my Sindhi town., Besan Aloo Tikki.
It is a part of our Sindhi cuisine and is made when one is feeling indulgent or for guests over unannounced.
It is very tasty of course, as all such food tends to be.
By making it at home, at least a few parameters like hygiene and quality are controlled.
Please do not confuse it with the Famous Bambaiya Batata Wada...though I am inclined to believe, they just might be distant cousins. 🙂
