When we think of Indian cuisine, the first thing that comes to mind is the extensive range of street food. From Delhi’s famous aloo chaat to Maharashtra’s vada pao and to Karnataka’s bonda, each region has its unique street food speciality that never ceases to surprise us! And just like us, business tycoon Harsh Goenka too has a favourite street food. Recently, the RPG Group chairman, Harsh Goenka revealed that he is a big fan of street food on Twitter. In his tweet, he wrote, “There is pani puri, bhel puri, ragda pattice, but my all-time favourite snack is jhalmuri. What gives it the special kick is mustard oil.” Along with his tweet, he also shared a video of a street vendor preparing some delicious jhalmuri.
In the short video, shared by the industrialist, we can see that the vendor adds murmure, chanachur, vegetables, spices and an assortment of chutneys and quickly whips up the jhalmuri. You can also hear the customer saying “spicy dena bhaiya” (Please make it spicy.) Take a look at the tweet here:
