Scratching my head in Wonder #WordlessWednesday

Mumbai is known for its innovations. With a large number of its citizens living in homes that aren’t permanent, there’s always someone looking for a quick bite on his way to or from home.

This man scratching his head at seeing a sign “Veg Chinese Bhel” had me scratching my head in wonder too!

What could it be ?

Dare I try it?

Would you try it? Would love to know your reaction to this.

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. Hahaha! We so love this Indianisation of foodstuffs from the world over!!
    I wouldn’t mind trying out the Chinese bhel…or, even the Manchurian bhel. Hey, we do have the Manchurian Dosa, don’t we? So, why not bhel? Ought to make a list of such ‘weird food combos’ for a FlavoursomeTuesdays post!:P

  2. I am not sure I would. When I grew up, “street food” was a hot dog with the “fixings”. I should get more adventerous, but my aging stomach says “not so fast”.

  3. It does sound weird but nothing unusual because it is a fact that we Indians love to give a native flavour to our food and that too in a way reflects the local taste! Chinese food in Kolkata is quite different from chinese food in Bangalore, believe me. I remember in the UK, whenever we ordered from any Chinese Takeaway, the food used to come super bland. I guess, its the way with most countries.
