Childhood nostalgia and simple tea-time pleasures
This dish is very close to my heart.
I remember my evenings at Vizag as a child.
We would look forward to a gentleman who keep ringing his cycle bells.There was a guy who would cycle all the way from local bakery wearing a white cap.He would bring us these little treats in two cans attached to his cycle.Other items were chikki,patti samosa,vegetable puffs along with freshly baked buns bread and cream buns.
Life was simple back then.
No online ordering.Simple fresh food.
