Food & Health: Galli ka khana ya Health ka Bhahana
Khan Galli the Rockstar of Street Food
The current generation kids usually prefer eating in food courts of malls or a restaurant but the previous generations all loved the “Khau Galli”. It has a greater value for money than the over priced ubiquitous mall’s food courts where a mere INR 10 bisleri bottle would be sold for INR 40.
Khau Galli’s are the most well known places of Maharashtra. Every district has one.
Khau Galli in Marathi means Streetfood or a FoodLane.
One such lane is the one located in Churchgate behind the famous Azaad Maidan on the road connecting SNDT university and the fashion street.
There would be a variety of food available all at reasonable and affordable prices.
There is vada pav, pav bhaji, missal, juices, milk shakes, chicken curry and much more.
But here’s a warning, it isn’t for the snoobish hygienic freaks.
“Young children after playing at the azaad maidan come and fill their small little bellies from the khau galli” tells us a local pav bhaji vendor.
So dear reader if you want a value-for-money-lipsmacking food, then do try out the khau gallis around in your region, the Mumbai fort one? Even better. Nothing brings people together like delicious street food.
Variety’s the very spice khau gali that gives it all its flavour.

Mom ke haath ka healthy tadka:
You know it when you have a delicious meal on your dinner table that your mom is happy today. Indian moms are known to bless their kids with abundant ghee and butter in the food. We met one such mom who is not guilty of counting spoons of sugar and drops of oil instead of counting calories. She tells us how she manages to cook food that is finger smacking good yet doesn’t increase your belly size. Her family stays fit without having to sacrifice their savouring food. She has made simple changes and combinations in her way of preparing the food.
