Local cuisine

While I’m in India, I’ve decided to indulge in all of the local cuisine. I have eaten various unknown fruits and vegetables from street carts and had sugar cane juice from a roadside eatery that would never be allowed to operate in the states. The cane was put through a press with water (local not filtered) and poured into a glass. It was warm and yellowish-green in color. I expected it to be sweet; instead, it tasted like it looked.

Vikram & I went to Milan, a local hangout across from the hotel in Aurangabad. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in India. Vikram went over to the restaurant earlier in the evening and asked the cook to make a fresh chicken. When I say fresh, I mean the cook went out back, got a live chicken, showed it to Vikram and made us dinner. The sauce was wonderful having a kick to it but not too spicy. According to Vikram, you have to ‘eat it properly’ which means do not leave any meat on the bones. He told me if you really want to eat it properly, you crack the bones with your teeth and suck out the marrow….I have no intention of being that proper.
