What goes around…goes more round round round and becomes a Jalebi!!!
As I am currently visiting kolkata…a foodies haven, I had to visit this place called GD market…
( All precautions taken 😊)
Most places in kolkata have these kind of markets in their own respective localities…
It is one of those markets which is like a closed enclosure containing every household item you need..from jewellery to bath fittings… groceries to beddings…and the list goes on..
A stroll through Kolkata’s GD market and one can never miss the sight of Jalebi wale bhaiya( person making Jalebis) at this shop called Raj Bhallavi sweets, dishing out round round jalebis like a pro..
He must have mastered the art to perfection as every curve is round, perfect in thickness and size..
People throng here to taste the hot freshly made Jalebis and samosas!!!
All for just Rupees 5 each!!!
The process begins sharply at 6 p.m and goes on for about an hour or so..
Sometimes the demand is soo much that he finishes his daily lot in a matter of minutes..
Throwback to my days in kolkata, we used to visit this place atleast once a week..
After a hectic day at work this was a perfect way to unwind , sipping kulhad wali chai..( Tea served in small clay pots/ cups) giving it an earthy flavour and of course jalebi and samosas…pure bliss!!
As I visit kolkata again, memories are refreshed and I keep my diet aside for a bite of this delectable mouth watering sweetmeat!!!
What’s your jalebi story??!!!
