Manali is truly one of the best famous tourist destinations in Himachal Pradesh, India for spending holiday with our family member. That was a promising day - my tour to Manali in Himachal Pradesh. I am a man who loves to travel long distances but while making a trip to Manali I nodded off. My mother woke me up to state we had come to. The minute I opened my eyes I was astonished - blue skies, white mountains, green land. It was extremely icy as well. We remained in a hotel close to the stream Beach. From the window of my room I could see the Rohtang pass. It was completely secured with snow. I haven't seen such a wonderful mountain ever some time recently. It was an amazing experience!! At Solang valley, we had the option of jumping from three heights. Initially I was a bit hesitant, but ultimately chose the highest point. First we went up via trolley. Then we trekked to reach the paragliding point that was a few meters down. I was quite nervous when we reached there. The thought of jumping from a mountain cliff does sound scary, doesn't it?? Manali is a really beautiful place indeed! Infact the way to Manali will give you an amazing view to look at if you choose to go by Car/Bus. One thing to keep in mind while booking a hotel is to choose the one which is near to Mall road! And make sure the hotel has a good view from balcony or window because if you are not waking up to a beautiful view its certainly a big miss! Best places to visit is Manali is 1.Solang Valley 2. Gulaba 3. Rohtang 4. Jugni Falls 5. Hidimba Temple 6. Cafes in Old Manali and if you are a Snow Lover! Just like me! then prefer going in December ! Thats the best time to visit Manali!

  When most people plan college trips to Goa, we changed our minds and ventured into the unexplored lands of the North East. Most people won't know this but one of the only places in India which follows matriarchial society is Shillong. Here, the man moves to his wife's house after marriage, there is equality apart from the serenity radiating from the lands.  As soon, as we landed on the grounds of Guwahati airport, the cluster of buildings in Delhi altered to rich green paddy fields and the smell of the recent downpour made us dizzy(in a good way) . We crossed the mighty Brahmaputra, the little ferries and fingers crossed to catch a glimpse of river dolphins. The drive from Guwahati to Shillong took about 2 and a half to three hours, the drive was beautiful. Also, as soon as we entered Meghalaya, the sweaty humidity of Guwahati vanished into a perfect weather. The first tourist site which welcomed us was the Barapani lake, which was huge and reminded of the great river in Hogwarts. Then we aclimatised ourselves to the weather on the first day, took a stroll towards the police Bazar( Glorys Plaza and Fancy market is one of the best places to buy clothes and shoes respectively). Treated ourselves to a plate of momos, and rested for the remaining night.  The following day, we started early towards the Shillong peak which is the highest point in Shillong. The weather was slightly cold but the sight was such a treat to the eyes. It was so peaceful and calm, entire Shillong was before us, and it was gorgeous! We had a delightful breakfast consisting of chai and maggi. Next stop was the root bridge. Root bridge is a man made bridge made of rubber trees, built by villagers decades ago. We climbed down a couple of 150 steps to a breathtaking view of the rootbridge, mid way, we gorged down on ripe pineapples and citrusy fruits. Rootbridge was the best memory of my Shillong trip, the clear waters of the stream below, it was hard to believe that a structure so beautiful existed. After climbing up the exhausting stroll, we moved on to the next location, which was Dawki.   Dawki is situated on the India Bangladesh border and is around 60 kms from Shillong, the Dawki waters are so clear that you can see the reflection of your own boat. To boat, we climbed down a rocky trek towards a small beach. We hopped onto narrow kayak like boats and passed through arches and the water was so clear, we could see fish and stones. We had some refreshing cool drinks and lunch in a dhaba enroute to our guest house. The next day we went to a nearby lake called Ward's Lake, boated through the lake, interacted with the local crowd. Also, there's a zoo nearby which has deer, and many species of birds. We also heard that there was a Butterfly Museum nearby but thinking of dead butterflies clipped on glass gave us the creeps. We had lunch in a local restaurant called Bamboo hut, the momos and coffee was delicious. Cafe Shillong is one of the most popular cafes, with live music and one of the only places in India which serve Beef. We were lucky that it wass a weekend, we saw Lou Majou, a popular Shillong artist perform and forced ourselves on delicious food, One of my friends really enjoyed the beef burger though I didn't try. Thukpa and Chocolate shake was sumptous.    Since, we only had a short tripped planned, we went to the Cathedral, which was all in blue matching with the clear blue skies of Shillong. Inside, it was very quiet and peaceful. We roamed around the area, it was huge.  Taking a quick bite from a nearby Cafe Munchies, we drove back to Guwahati along with our hearts full of serenity, peace and calm. Shillong is known as capital and hill station of Meghalaya, also known as "The Abode of Clouds", one of the smallest states in India. With its amazing beauty and breathtaking lakes and rivers it never fails to give you amazing experiences.

As the winter holidays arrived the thrill of going places got me. After tremendous persuasion I was able to bring my Dad’s foot in the car, and then there was no looking back. Everyone was excited for this much needed break, whether it is a break from kitchen as for mom or an escape from books as for my younger brother .We all headed in our car to reach the state’s heart INDORE . We dropped down at my aunt’s place at palasia and brought breakfast from the famous vijay chat corner ,56 dukan. There is no match for the indori poha with the spiced up katchori (a puri stuffed with spiced lentils, potato, or beans)and the sugar coated jalebi(sweet dish). After having the breakfast we headed to the shopping destination Rajwada, where you can get vivid variety of material blend with the essence of tradition. If you are in rajwada then you ought to go to kothari market for the rest of your shopping , we had a great time there with the ever fresh coconut crush and the best pakodas in the world. After the evening trail we went for lunch destination gurukripa, after having the delicious kaju kari we headed for khajrana temple also known as bada ganpati , where they say your wishes come true. The clock ticked and we moved to the biggest treasure of indore ,the treasure island ,the mall is a whole package of entertainment where you shop, eat, play ,from tattoos to cotton candies you get all there. The dusk arrived , and when you are in indore you are compelled to have the scrumptious coffee at tinku’s. The trip is still on, we went to the regal park for some site seeing and relaxing, view there was bracing the soul. Spending a quality time we went to have the dinner this time we decided to have the street food at chappan dukan. From dosa to idly to pav bhaji no one can beat the indori spices and taste. If you ever find yourself at chappan go to the ohm’s for having the special indori namkeen for your take away. Dinner is incomplete without dessert , and dessert in indore is incomplete without having the mouth watering kulfi (a type of ice-cream)at sheetal kulfi. After having an amazing day we went back to aunt’s place but only couple of hours for we didn’t eat dinner and now all of us are hungry at 12 o’clock .Where to go at this hour? You need to think that if you were in any other city ,but when you are in indore then the question itself is answer to sarafa bazar, the life of the foodies in indore. Where you have mouth watering jalebi to the sweet drops of rasmalai(sweet dish) to everything the stomach crave at mid of the night. This was it my one day journey to the state’s heart or a Foodie’s life or the shopaholic soul Indore.

Food is something that comes into one of the top priorities that comes into your mind while traveling to a certain destination. Food is something that is really a great factor in determining the destination to be chosen for your holidays. Every place has its own food specials to offer for you. Be it the Vada Pav of Mumbai or the famous Hyderabadi Biryani and much more. But what stands out for me is my own place that is Delhi. If you are a foodie then Delhi is rightly your paradise. Be it the Chole Bhature or the Pav Bhaji or Gol Gappe you can have everything a foodie dreams about in his paradise. The lip smacking Chole Bhature or the ever tasty Gol Gappe(panipuri as called in some places) and to top it all are the numerous number of small street vendors sitting in even the narrowest streets of the city. The new trend being the coming up of momos stalls in large numbers and in the most affordable prices in the whole country. The age old Kathi rolls have too made up their place back in the hearts of the people of the city. Even with the new fast food stuff making to the Delhi markets,we have the old things such as Kachori, Bread Pakora and samosas still going strong. What Delhi is good at is adopting to every kind of food that is coming into the market and that is the reason for having such a great diversity in the food markets. You can find food here even in the most remote areas of the city and can find almost anything that you might want from breakfast stuff to lunch to snacks and all. If you are a foodie and want to see a great amount of diversity then the Food capital of the country is waiting for you. Not to forget the bakers of the city baking those wonderful Jalebis and all those stuff. My mouth has got a lot of wet in writing down this blog and really need to get a recharge of anything form above. COME AND LIVE THE DREAM THAT EVERY FOODIE DESIRES. :smiley: Find more delicious street foods from diffrent parts of India with the help of eChutti travel club.

The city of Joy is the hub of mouth-watering dishes (from street food to multiple cuisines) – the foodies’ paradise. As Kolkata is home to different cultures, various cuisines are appreciated. The city is flooded with numerous food joints. There are several food destinations, I make sure to check in, that are on my favourite-list. Be it the morning breakfast to dining, I aim to make the most out of my time to treat myself with the delicacies. The moment I step into my city I am engulfed by the aroma of the street food. My eyes, then, hunt for a food-stop to try-out the street foods. To start the day with a special breakfast one must visit the Chinatown of Kolkata. No, I am not referring to the new one that is located in Tangra. Territi Bazaar – the old Chinatown of Kolkata – is the right place to start your day with. The Chinese special breakfast, available from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., compels one to visit again after having once. Dim sums, momos, spring rolls, and sausages are available for the breakfast. Bao or Bau; freshly steamed or nicely fried, with pork and other heavenly filling, served with hot sauce is soothing and warm. The fish-ball soup is a must-have in the menu. With a pocket-pinch of Rs 100 per person, one gets to taste the king-size breakfast. A not-very-famous restaurant called Rosenberg, which serves Chinese cuisine is one of my favourites. When I enter the restaurant the smell of food doubles my hunger. It is one of the very few restaurants, I have seen, that qualify for the exact taste of Chinese dishes. Also it serves Mughlai dish. The ambience is apt for couples to celebrate anniversaries or special occasions. The music, fresh aroma surrounding the restaurant, candle-lights strikes the right chord to attract the love-birds. How can I not think of having Mughlai dish without which one does not deserve to be called a foodie? Biryani, a royal dish that age long back to the history, is such a palatable food that attracts the people to devour it. This special dish is made in almost all the occasions celebrated by the people in Kolkata. The Kolkata-style biryani is now considered to be on top of the list of various biryani styles. Oudh 1590, to me, is the best restaurant to serve Mughlai dish, especially biryani. I remember the last time I went to the eatery I had the recommended dishes-Raan biryani, Galawati kebab, Kakori kebab, and Shahi-tukda. The taste is just phenomenal. The interiors of the restaurant, exquisitely designed, evokes the days of Raj. The ambience, tantalizing smell, lights, architectural-designs of the walls, the elegant chairs and tables, even the beautiful plates and glasses mesmerize one by taking back to the times of the Mughal period. Oudh 1590 in all aspect is so palatial. It gives the feeling of entering a Mughal Palace. Why would this palace be not one’s favourite of all? In every aspect it has to be. Each time I leave the city for work, with all the sadness, I take along with me the sweet memories of savouring these dishes. Talking of the sweet memories I am reminded of the sweet shops in Kolkata, which makes the City of Joy special. Kolkata is famous for sweets. No sweet shop in the world can beat the taste of rasogolla of the sweets joint called Nabin Chandra Das. They were the ones to invent rasogolla. It is big, yet soft like a sponge, tastes so heavenly that one gets lost in the taste of it.

My favourite food destination :yum: Finger licking southindian dishes at the tick of your clock…… What would you do when you lock yourself out of the house and your tummy is rumbling like cries of battle of rats and elephants? This is an occupational hazard which i do every now and then. The little secret is that i wholeheartedly cherish and welcome this. Because i get a chance to visit the bestest place on mother earth, obviously in my locality, to devour the amazing food of Madras Cafe. It is a small restaurant not very far from my place. A fresh and earthly aroma of curry leaves and spices engulf me as i enter here every time. I mean it literally and figuratively both. It is a humble place not very catchy and tacky. I feel like home here. The service is also good and the demeanor of the staff is friendly. Mysore masala dosa and uttapam are my most preferred and delicious dishes among the others what they offer. Coconut chutney with mindblowing sambhar just takes you to the third level. The best thing which i appreciate about the place is that everything here is prepared fresh. Yes i usually wait after putting my order but the ride of heaven after eating the food i take is worth it. As i am their regular customer so they treat me now with a gulab jamun as a token of their love. That is what we call icing on cake. Isn’t it! I would always like to come here because this would forever be my favourite food destination. :heart_eyes::yum::yum::yum:

I was doing normal until those cravings in me to eat Dosa doubled that evening. My taste buds felt deserted and waited to be savoured by scrumptious food. I couldn't go out to eat Dosa that evening because i knew the best Dosa i would get won't be available at that time. So, what i did was, i set my alarm to 2:30 AM and no i didn't have those multiple alarms set to wake me up as I'm not a morning person. That night i struggled hard to sleep and i ended up getting dreams in which world was made of Dosa. The alarm rang when i was about to savour a bite of Dosa( in my dreams ofcourse). No snooze required, i was instant to awaken my eyelids. I took a shower and woke my brother with two strong kicks. We both drove to Nampally station which is in Hyderabad, only a few kilometers away from my house. There is karachi bakery near Nampally station, and opposite to that is lane where my heart skips a beat and it is called Ram ki Bandi. We finally reached Ram Ki Bandi. The air was cold and stiff, my heart thumping in my ears as if it was to burst out, my lips almost dried as the cold air surrounded in my mouth. Ram ki Bandi, a famous road side food serving its lip-smacking butter idly, butter dosa and many other delicious items, only between 3 AM to 8 AM. It is one of the first late night eateries in the city and is rated 4.5 out of five on Zomato's ranking. People come here, from rags to riches, stand in queue to order, no matter how erratic the time is and that's what makes it more special show casing the demand of the heavenly savouring juicy appetizing butter dosa and many other varieties. That day i desperately waited while my mouth watered seeing him put the semi liquid upma onto the dosa with other magic ingredients and finally handed it over to me. Hot dosa coupled with darkness, a few streetlights flickering here and there and the chill weather made the dosa yummy even before i ate it. I managed to take a bite and my desperate taste buds savoured the juicy butter slowly revealing it's taste with every bite of the dosa. Me and my brother happily had the butter dosa and i killed the rats running in my stomach with a plate of butter dosa followed by butter idly. As we were leaving the place we saw a mother with almost torn cloths with a baby crying in her arms. I felt broken seeing their plight. I asked my brother to take a turn and we went to Ram ki Bandi again and got two butter dosa's packed and then went and gave it to that women. Nothing could satisfy me more than the happiness i saw in her eyes that day! :smile:   Is dosa is your favorite food too?? nothing beats your craving like perfect masala dosa. Plan your trip to south India and enjoy amazing food.
