While I was away from blogging in the the month of September, I was busy exploring a new city -Bangalore. I visited this crammed up, extremely busy city previously but, this visit wasn’t from a traveller’s perspective. I was occupied with shadowing dietitians, learning the nuances of dietetic counselling. Most of the days, I kept myself between home and office. The thought of withstanding Bangalore’s traffic after a busy day at office was quite unsettling. I would like to take you all through a trip of what I found during an erratic and impulsive hopping spree across the city.
Take a look at the round spices in the last horizontal column of the above collage. Black Pepper, Pink Pepper and All spice from left to right! Pink pepper, sounds fancy right? From distance, they reminded me of sparkly sugar toppings that are sprinkled on the top of cakes and cupcakes. By the way, interestingly they are not a member of the pepper family. Pink peppercorns are dried berries of Brazilian pepper tree and have a lighter peppery taste and impart fruity fragrance. ‘All spice’ also known as Jamaican pepper has a powerful medley of aromas of cinnamon, black pepper, nutmeg and cloves. I tried the tzatzki, harissa mayo, pesto mayo, greek goddess mayo and a couple of cheeses.
Apart from these I have come across ginger beers and exotic coffee syrups, tea leaves and many more. Walking in food hall, was an culinary educational experience!
By the way bought the Pasanda pickle from the Cheeni Kum store. Pasanda pickles are available on Amazon too.
So that’s about this trip to Bangalore. Let me know of your experiences in this urban jungle! 🙂
