Most evenings when my husband comes home, he brings vada pav (the Indian burger) with him. He usually gets it from the stall in our street, wrapped up in familiar newspaper.
This evening I was confused. I looked at the packaging and initially thought he’d brought McDonalds! “Haven’t you ever had JumboKing vada pav?”, he laughingly asked me. Really? It was vada pav? It came in a brown paper bag and was wrapped up just like a burger!
Unwrapping it didn’t do anything to convince me that it was in fact vada pav. The bun was toasted, with grill marks on it.
However, when I bit into it, it revealed itself to definitely be a vada pav. And a delicious one at that! It was much more flavoursome than a McDonald’s burger. Apparently, these JumboKing stalls can be found out the front of all railway stations. And the best bit, a vada pav only costs 10 rupees. I love the thoughtful message on the wrapper too.
