Food on our mind . Tidbits

Our Favourite "BUN TIKKI"(..another word for a Burger ) snack halt on way to Nainital.

Pine wood all around...open plan kitchen..and a wooden floor
Friend's place in Nainital Distt.

Tea time, sandwiches...amid bird calls and cool mountain air.

After breakfast on the lawns of a hotel in Udaipur

Mirror work, fresh leaves adorn this sofa in the restaurant of the resort in the Runn of Kutch.
Morning at Narkanda
The Shivalik range in the background

Garden fresh Galgal for home-made pickle
Khopa Village, Distt. Nainital.

Pizzeria, Marine Drive, Bombay

Restaurant in the middle of the sea !
Actually , in knee deep water.
Tarkarli, Konkan coast,  Maharashtra.

Manchav Soup...
Minnistoni Soup....
And it would be a crime not to savour the CRIME OF TOMATO SOUP.
Good Luck !

Chopsi and Sizzlaar at your service.

Apples at the Lakeside View Resort at Narkanda.

Morning tea at Narkanda

Sun burnt and hungry--at Kalpa, Himachal Pradesh.

This family gifted us fresh pears and apples.
Kalpa, Himachal Pradesh .

Lake View Resort, Narkanda. Family owned and run place, with some real nice, fresh home made food.

Hot Thupka, Momos and Noodles being awaited. Small, clean, cozy little 5 table room/restaurant in Kalpa.

Hmm.. Paronda and Poeedige sound nice in the cold, cold weather of  Tabo, Spiti.

This little German Bakery at the TABO Monastery -- run by a local Buddhist chap, had the yummiest Chocolate cake wedges. And Apple Pie..and more chocolate delicacies..and still more chocolate...
Spiti Valley.

Time for a Walnut munching session during a trek at Kalpa.

The self proffessed 'Golu monk' (Golu as in chubby ! He said he used to be quite plump as a kid and all the kids in the village used to lovingly call him Golu ) at the Komick Monastery made us tea, with Yak milk, and lots of love, in his warm, cozy little room.
Komick happens to be the highest inhabited village in the world. Bordering Tibet.

The GOLU Monk at Komick Monastery .
He also gifted us an amonnite fossil.
Probably serving as a Hostel Warden in Delhi now.

Thank you , Judi !
These pictures are from several different trips to many different places. We have now repeated some of these holidays to the same places. That's why we have some "favourite" stops by now !
