I was travelling by local train in kolkata. These trains are for short distance, one locality to other locality. It was a interesting journey, those who are daily passengers, they have their own groups. Some of them enjoying with playing cards, some of them debating with political discussion, some ladies prefer gossip by travelling. I was watching all the activities, suddenly I spotted a vendor who was selling Jhalmuri. Then my daughter said "Maa let us taste this jhalmuri". I asked the vendor to pack for us. I am sharing the easy and tasty recipe.
