Pattice Recipe

The Maharashtra and Gujarat cuisine like all the cuisines of India is affected by the combined influences of cuisines originating from those of South India and North India as there are elements of Konkani, Gujarati, Chettinad, Andhra and Goan cuisine. The Ragda Pattice, a popular fast food in Maharashtra and Gujarat is a variation of the popular aloo tikki and are a kind of ravioli that derive from the Spanish cuisine of empanadas and English patties.

The Indian word Aloo means potato while the word Tiki or Tikki, generally means a small size cutlet or croquette which can vary between 6 and 15 inches. It is a common Indian appetizer or snack and is a kind of dumpling of potatoes in mixed spices, fried by immersion. It is usually served with a chutney of tamarind or saunth chutney or coriander and mint hari chutney, sometimes also with a yogurt place called dahi or with the chickpeas.

The McDonald's Indian in their menu include the McAloo tikki burger, or a classic sandwich stuffed with the tikki, although this version is detached from the traditional dish. We have presented the patties, or crescents of dough stuffed with curried vegetables, which Luisa then showed on his blog, and skewers of jerk chicken, or chicken marinated with spices and rum.

In the sauce and marinade is mixed fresh chillies, sauces, spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and cloves, chives or green onion, garlic and more recently soy sauce. All this gives the food cooked in a spicy Patties and certainly exotic.

It can be filled in different ways, in our case the filling spicy was vegetables into bread dough colored with turmeric. It can be served warm to room temperature.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house.

That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:
