Have you ever eaten Raj Kachouri and Pav Bhaji?

My wife has been lazy these days. Moreover these days she gets tired and doesn't wish to cook. She asks me to order food online twice or thrice a week. It's fine for the kids and her but not for me as I don't like outside food. Recently we went to have dinner outside in a nearby restaurant and ordered "Raj Kachuari" and "Pav Bhaji". These were delicious and very spicy. I guess Indians maybe know it as these are famous dishes in India. I liked the food but please don't ask how it is made as I won't be able to explain it. Maybe Vanny, @ptrikha_2, and @akp100 knowing it and tell more about them.

I am drooling over the name of these dishes. We don't get very good ones here in South India. So, I make sure that I eat them whenever I visit Delhi. But you are right, even I can't eat outside food more often. Good that you give break to your wife. We all need that.

@arunima25 You must have a Haldiram's outlet in Bengaluru? You may order online as well? By the way, how is your day going?

@sjvg1976 But they could have an outlet in the bigger, cosmopolitan city like Bengaluru.

Hmm. They may not be available in south India. There you may be finding Idli, dosa, and vada everywhere. We also enjoy eating them.

I guess it was Haldiram's ?? I have eaten both of these bit never as a combo. During August we had eating out there 2/3 times but cut down in September as we were getting fever/cold repetitively. We can explain Pav as a special bread and Bhaji as a Mixed vegetable in Gravy with a lot of spices and some butter plus coriander leaves to garnish. Raj Kachauri or Kachori is flavored curd with lots of Pomegranate pieces, chutneys and some spices. For making, I would also have to think and write a detailed note! Thanks for sharing! Nice Thursday ahead

@sjvg1976 That is also good. Yet Haldiram's scores in some of the dishes although at a slightly higher price. Haldiram's North Indian platter is 300 INR plus but worth trying out.

@sjvg1976 Eating out is costlier anyways. One does gets some discounts and promotional offers on Swiggy but that is situational and random. Yet if you are in an experimental mood, try Tandoori Tales as well as Boxmeal on Swiggy.

No, it was Bikanervala. We have it nearby our home. That is a good explanation you gave about the dishes.

I get tired of cooking so Pretty and I buy stuff that can just be microwaved from frozen. We don't buy a lot of those types of foods because they can be expensive but they give me a break from cooking.

@MrDenata Actually, taquitos, pizza bites and pork wontons this time. They are all delicious and only need microwaved for a few minutes before you can eat them. YUM! (Pretty bought burritos this time.)

@sjvg1976 I could ask Pretty to explain how to make vegetarian food you could do yourself. Once in a while she will send a pm to someone on myLot who asks for recipes from me.

If you ask the vendor not to make spicy he won't put all the ingredients and will make nonspicy for you.

I've never had those dishes but it looks good from the picture but I'm not sure I can handle that spiciness.I bought a fish curry recently and it was so spicy that I couldn't finish the dish even. You are sure lazy to explain it to others.
