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.
