Two young women we met introduced us
to sweet paan, a palate
cleanser with a sweet filling of coconut, fruit preserves, spices,
maraschino cherry, wrapped in betel pepper leaf. I can't say
I enjoyed it much but it could have been worse it could have been the
aphrodisiac paan, a.k.a. the 'Bed Breaker'
According to our driver this is the most
famous Samosa stand in the city. This being India the owner could well
be his uncle but they were very good.
We also paid several visits to the "Pink Cities Famous Old Lassiwala"
opposite the Palace of the Winds, carrying away delicious yoghurt in
tapered clay pots which kept it cool
