Boat Basin has always been famous for the traditional halwa puri breakfast it offers on weekend mornings. Numerous eateries along the line that offer barbeque by night, open their doors early in the mornings on Saturdays and Sundays to offer rich but delicious delcacies to their customers.
Reportedly, the workers are up since 5 a.m to whisk up the breakfast items.
We arrived late, at 10:30 a.m, but breakfast was still going strong.
This is where we sat to dine; or rather, squatted.
School students and families were in abundance, especially groups of young teenaged lads.
Paratha, aloo bhaji and sooji (semolina) halwa. Obviously this kind of eating out is not for high-maintenance germophobes who can't 'get down and dirty' to rough it once in a while.:)
Omelette and puri's. Health-conscious salad-leaf nibblers, this breakfast is obviously not for you. ;)
Wash it down with hot doodh patti (strong, sweet tea brewed in milk).
Verdict: Dining alfresco in the cool morning breeze - a great option for an occasional family outing on weekend mornings! Try it some day.
