It has travelled in most corners of India where it is has been experimented. Mumbai calls it the panipuri where we find coriander paste as the base for the main pani. Calcutta has given a nudge twist and calls it the ‘Poochka’ where the tamarind water is used as the main pani.

It’s observed and noticed that since huge years Maggie is ruling our plate. It’s our childhood special dish which is still continued even when we are young. It’s our favorite breakfast since childhood and sharing is not allowed. The 2 min Maggie noodles was always a party time. The curly gracious smooth lines of noodles are yummy. It’s the only thing many of us can cook with great ease and cook the best. It has come up with a variety to the original Maggie still sticking to the original is what most people prefer, precisely. Again consumed daily is harmful for health.
And there will be still many yummy foods I left- but these are the first things we run to when we are hungry and we can’t stay away from it. The franky rolls and small pizzas available in the central suburbs are trending. Also the Chinese experimented dishes are creating a buzz for young students. We cannot forget our dosas and samosas and the Indian created bread pakodas too.
