The Kasauli Cow....


These images from Kasauli tell their own story. This cow had so much attitude, she almost chewed up my camera. Though, what she was actually after were the unbeatable  samosas and jalebis the Samosawalla in the pic with me is so justifiably proud of. People come from far and wide to sample his Bun Samosa ( I preferred mine with chana chaat ), which Khushwant Singh had written about ( a framed copy of that column hangs in the tiny shop). The jalebis! Worth travelling to Kasauli for - piping hot, sticky, juicy and lethal! I really loved my time in Kasauli - my smile says it all. I have more pics.... you just have to raise your hand, and I shall post them.
 Meanwhile, I'm getting butterflies in my stomach with the imminent launch of Sethji. Soon, you'll be able to enjoy Sethji Coffee at a Barista outlet nearest you. More details closer to the time.
 I'm off to Rishikesh and Haridwar tomorrow morning. It has been my dream to witness the full moon Ganga Aarti. Well, that's one dream coming true.  I feel so blessed!

Thanks for sharing the pictures! I guess they're of the lower mall. I love that cobblestone pathway, reminiscent of the British era. It's always a nice walk down the lower mall especially while munching some hot crispy jalebis. Also, did you notice, alongside the lower mall and in the town, there are artistically shaped fire hydrants, indicating planned development of the town. I was ignorant of the Bun samosa, shall try it, whenever I visit Kasauli again. Would love to see more pics!!

There was a pakoriwala in Kasauli, i do not know if he is the same guy graduated to samosa in last six years. But that was a mere shack and amazing pakori on winter evening

Reading this makes me so hungry... anything to eat those samosas and jalebis right now.

Never seen (or heard) about Bun Samosa. Must try it out the next time I am in Bombay - sorry, Mumbai.
Rishikesh, Haridwar and the Golden Temple are on my "must see" list. Will make it in 2013 :-)

Ganga Aarti is good. But pls dont enter the big holy gutter.
