    What to eat!!

     

    Indore’s love affair with food is older than its name. A typical day in Indore starts with a rather interesting combination of Poha and Jalebi. It is the most quintessential breakfast here and a day doesn’t seem to begin for the people of Indore without it.



     

    jalebi-Poha

     

     

    One of the oldest and traditional sweet shops in Indore called the "Madhuram Sweets" churns out the strangest yet delicious beverage known as Shikanji which is nothing like a usual Shikanji that you might have had before. It is beaten out of shrikhand and curd and served with the toppings of dry fruits and Kesar. This shop is in the Chappan Dukan area which is dotted with “56” other shops and is a food street that witnesses a great influx of visitors every day. Many other small roadside vendors line up here to sell other local fast foods such as Chicken Roll, Fried Garadu, coconut patties, crispy Kachoris and more.

     

     

    milky-shikanji

     

     

    Few kilometres away from "Chappan Dukan," located is the Sarafa Bazar which also has a lot to offer for the ones gastronomically inclined apart from expensive jewellery & gems. It is said that this place is 100 years old and was encouraged by the jewellery shop owners so as to secure their own shops in the night with the buzzing crowd. When most of the Indore is asleep, this late-night market gets nearly 4000-5000 visitors, both locals and tourists.

     

     

    Night-stalls

     

     

    With neon signboards strung up on the shutters of every closed jewellery shops in Sarafa, the well-lit carts invading the darkness of the night and people negotiating over the prices of a plate of jalebi while also carefully walking past the giant woks with bubbling hot oil in it is a mesmerizing sight.

     

     

    Jaleba

     

    The Indori Gulab Jamun found in Sarafa is yet another unusual twist to the ordinary Gulab Jamun that we all must have had either in the shops or at home. These Gulab Jamuns sold in Sarafa woes every dessert lover with its big sizes. Not only does its size make it an exceptional creation of the humans but also the Mawa, dry fruits, saffron, and cardamom stuffed in it make it the best in the town. If you want to gulp in a Gulab Jamun after a flat main course, then Sarafa is the place to be!

    Sarafa Bazaar stays awake throughout the night, for feeding and satisfying the city’s unruly appetite. One look at the Bhutte ki Kees and you are there! It’s a dish in which corn is topped with coriander and coconut gratings along with drops of lemon juice.

     

     

    Corn-Kheesh

     

    Generations of tweaking and improving classic recipes have led to Sarafa Bazaar being the birthplace of culinary culture in Indore. Every lane in the Bazaar is crammed with sounds and aromas of different savouries. The Jaleba, egg benjo, Dal Bafla and Khopra Patties are other such dishes whose recipes have been twisted to tickle your senses with an ensemble of flavours. One can find more than 100 varieties of dishes at Sarafa Bazaar. Since Indori food is rarely subtle, hence most of it is steeped in richness and tartness.



    Living the childhood fantasy in Essel World

    Living the childhood fantasy in Essel World

     It was a lunch conversation with colleagues on a typical Thursday afternoon that sparked this exciting and fun weekend getaway plan. Like most of our friends, we too intended to travel over the long weekend of Dusshera. Since my childhood, the one thing I have always desired to see was the Esselworld in Mumbai. While recalling my old memories, I remembered how Essel world was the most talked-about fantasy park of the 90’s back then.

    That was it—we decided to leave for Mumbai on the same day at night.

    My colleague booked two sleeper seats with VRL Travels through Travelyaari bus booking portal. To our surprise, we could claim great discounts that Travelyaari was offering on bus tickets due to the ongoing festive season.

    We reached Mumbai on the next day morning and booked a local Taxi to the Marve road. It is here where we boarded the ferry to Gorai.

     Ferry to Gorai to Reach Essel world

     

    Travelling on an impulse
    Essel world is the biggest amusement park in India that observes a large influx of tourists from all over the world every year. It is a well-planned construction on an Island called Gorai in Mumbai. Everything about this place is incredible, right from reaching the island via a Ferry to the long passage at the seashore. While riding to the Island, we were taken aback by the magical sight of the colourful fishes, flocks of white swans and ducks swimming in the water.

     

    Essel World: A day in the kingdom of fun
    As we straddled along the road to the park, we came across many eating joints. We hopped from one shop to the other and ate until we were full. The one thing we chomped on throughout this trip inside the park was the cotton candies.

     

    Cotton-candy-for-the-trip 

    Eventually, we reached the point where all the rides inside the premises could be seen. There were crowds dressed in fancy clothes resembling the famous cartoon characters. Apart from the fun rides, there were many fun events, carnivals, and activities organized to keep the excitement alive.

     

     Dressed-in-fancy costumes

     
    And this was our experience at Esselworld. It was extremely refreshing, and soon we realized about the much-forgotten return journey to home. Our Bus from Mumbai to Bangalore was scheduled at 10:00 PM on the same day at night.

    It has been more than a week since we have come back, but the memories are so fresh that I can still breathe every second of that trip. If time travel exists on earth, it has to be in Essel world again.


    Tip
    Do not miss to take a ride on What-a-Coaster, Goofers Lagoon, Wetlantic, The Lagoon, Brat zone, and Adventure Amazonia


    The park opens its gate at 10 am and shutdowns all its rides by 8 pm


    The Entry fee to Essel World is as follows:
    INR 600 for children
    INR 950 for adults
    INR 300 for senior citizens

     

    I first drove to Qutab Minar followed by the rest. Scroll further to see the different hues of Delhi, still displaying its pride.

    A road to the ancient era

    “Bus journeys have always been very fascinating mainly because it reflects the colors of India as well as take you on the run to explore life and its different shades.”

     

    This travel journal will take you through the Highways of Patiala alongside the pleasant scenes of the paddy, mustard and rice fields to the capital city of India and leave you startled about it.

    My bus tickets were booked through Travelyaari in PRTC Bus from Patiala to Delhi that was scheduled at 5:01 AM on 22 May 2017. This was the first time I shall be travelling to Delhi and hop around alone all by myself. Yes, just the thought of this solo trip, filled my heart with excitement and valour.  

    As I was journeying through the gorgeous yellow fields of mustard, the fantasy that quickly hit me was of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. After travelling for about 120 KMs, we arrived at Singhpura and halted here for some time for a quick breakfast.

    We stopped by at Tusir Vashna Dhaba and just the aroma that lingered around here got me hungry. I ordered aloo parathas with scrambled eggs, pickles and I simply can’t get over it yet. Next, we continued our journey towards Delhi and came across many more serene sites passing by my window.

    At around 10:10 AM we made it to the city and got dropped at the bus station. It is from here that I booked myself a taxi for a city tour after negotiating for a while and finally agreeing upon a fee of 3000 INR/ day.

    Delhi has been under the throne of many dynasties since time immemorial. Right from the Pandavas of Mahabharata to Narendra Modi of today's political scenario, many rulers have come and gone. Thus, making Delhi a versatile state with architecture reflecting its timeline from the ancient ages.

    Delhi is a lot more than just a city of love. It is an ideal blend of culture and modernity. It is a capital state with countless monuments on one hand while a world-class airport and metro on the other.

    I first drove to Qutab Minar followed by the rest. Scroll further to see the different hues of Delhi, still displaying its pride.

    Tajmahal

    Tajmahal

    It is the appeal of the Taj Mahal enticing tourists from all over the world to Agra. A city with a remarkable past, dwelling on the banks of River Yamuna, offers much more than just the Taj.

     

    After living a day like an archaeological explorer, I checked into my hotel room in The Taj Vilas, Agra for a night stop.
    The immediate next day I had my bus scheduled at 6:55 AM and I reached Patiala at 12:25 PM. On our way, we had rested at Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba in Sonipat for a delicious breakfast and continued.

    This Delhi excursion is one of the greatest I have ever had in all my life. I loved every corner of this city and wish to be back here.
