Around such beautiful weather, you will definitely feel like eating something that is a perfect fit for the climate. During the monsoon, the dullest look will be vivid, surrounded by brilliant vegetation and the scent fills your senses. To enjoy this season in an unforgettable way, we bring you a list of foods you should have during the rainy season when you are in India.
What to Eat in the Monsoon Season in India
1. Aloo Pakora
For the perfect enjoyment of a rain shower, nothing could be better than crisp aloo delights. Hot served snacks and green chutney are the perfect way to have fun. The spicy fried chili and chutney that comes with it make the overall experience great. Combine this with some “Cutting Chai” to create a feeling of complete monsoon.
When the sky is dark and windy, a well-cooked bhutta should be tried. Carbonated smoke with lemon and red chili on the bright yellow corn is something that will lift your mood, even if it is stuck in jam during the monsoon. Then topped with a tart masala made from black pepper, salt, red chili powder, and lemon juice to get a combination of all the flavors. It is worth experiencing eating this hot bhutta in the rain.
