Have you ever had Pau Bhaji?

Monday, February 17, 2020

It is no secret that I will eat anything at any time and there are very few foods I won’t eat a second time. Up until now the only item that would fit in the ‘won’t eat again’ is oyster plant also known as salsify, the root used as a vegetable. I ate that in 1967 when I joined Weight Watchers and now 53 years later I have found a second that joins Oyster pant!

PAU BHAJI is defined on the box cover as “The original fast food of Mumbai it literally means bread and mixed vegetables. The ‘bhaji’ is mixed vegetables in a medley of spices and herbs cooked to perfection in large pats of butter and garnished with coarsely fresh coriander leaves and diced onions.

All I know is that I tasted red chilies--loads of them--capsicum, peppers--loads of them--garlic and, yes, loads it! This version of Pau Bhaji was one of the spiciest dishes I have ever had and I kept on eating hoping for something but I don’t know what!

I can honestly say that Pau Bhaji is the WORST dish I ever had! (So why did I eat it all?)

    We do eat potato bhaji cooked in oil etc & its to die for. But then this is Dhaka Bangladesh not Mumbai, India. Unfortunately Indians eat much more spicy food.

    I know why you ate it all, you kept thinking this bite will taste better. Or I will figure out what I don't like it I figure out the spices. I love the Geiko ad with the racoons when one says while eating from the garbage, eat this it is so horrible you gotta taste it.:) Almost your birthday)

    You never know how you are going to like something unless you try it!

    There is no answer to that one. It sounds like a nightmare to me.
