There is nothing that gives us immense joy and happiness during the monsoon seasons except for Chai & Hot Pakoras.
The month of July has something in the air every year, that makes Mumbaikar’s crave for deep fried delicious Pakodas with some hot chai. A single drop of water splashing on dry ground makes everyone’s heart scream for “Garma Garam Pakodas”.

Cheese Lovers will truly appreciate its existence in any form. A huge dollop filled with cheese is first rolled into a batter, then it is deep fried. What can be more mouth-watering than this?
Garam Chai and Mirchi Bhajiya is an all time favourite snack. Spicy green chilies deep fried in oil is an extremely good combination. There are many stalls in Mumbai which serve Mirchi Bhaji but we found this to be the best so far.
