Namaste everyone 🙏🏻 Wondering why I said namaste today? Well, then you’ve definitely got to read this post to know that! As usual I was looking forward to spend a pleasant evening And I decided this place would be perfect to have an amazing Mumbai chai in this beautiful monsoon drizzles in Hyderabad.
CHAI PANI CAFE, is located in jubliee hills. As I entered, the first thing that caught my attention was the ambience.This place seemed like a small portion from the streets of Mumbai were shifted here. The exteriors of the kitchen were like a street food stall in Mumbai but interior a sophesticate one. Over all a small, cute and cozy place to hangout with buddies and a must for those who love Mumbai!
Ab toh Khana ke bare me hi baath karenge bhai❗️
The name says it all, Mumbai cutting chai. It was served in a glass cup with half filled tea and a small rusk. A complete Mumbai style chai. Loved it!
It was aromatic, with beautiful fragrance of ginger and spice’s! tastes like the regular adrak chai but the spices are belended along so well making it a perfect Masala chai.
Kesari chai was soo aromatic that I could smell it right from the table! kesari (saffron) was floating on top and it was served with a small rusk. It tasted really good and had that kick of the punjabi flavor, A must try!
This was something I tried for the first time so it took pretty long for me to identify the intensity and the taste in particular. It had a good infusion of ingredients. Fragrance of Tulsi, honey was good and it was piping hot. I would say it’s healthy!
Now time for Nashta( snacks)
Who hasn’t had samosas ya? Right from schools to college canteens to rishtas! But, this chicken samosa would always have a special place in my heart. The filling inside was made of marinated chicken chunks and spice’s, served with green chutney and ketchup and a twig of coriander for presentation. It wasn’t like a regular samosa, it was spicy and way too tasty!
This was a Mumbai special Wada pav, and I could have it for all the three meals of a day! For my breakfast, Lunch and dinner! My all time favorite. Was served with green chutney, a green chilli to spice it up! The first bite reminded me of my first trip to Mumbai. It was phenomenal, same taste, same flavor everything. Even this is also a must try.
They have something different in their menu, pav bhaji inside bun. When there’s something new how can not I try? I ordered one and I knew I made a good choice, because it was fantastic. Bhaji stuffed inside pav and topped with cheese. I bet you would not find this anywhere else except in chai pani!
Green chutney,mayonnaise & lettuce was filled between the bread slices and was served with sev . It was like a regular sandwich in a chat style. Nice tho
pakodas are yet another favourite snack during winter. This paneer ( cottage cheese) pakora had an intense flavor. Was crunchy from outside and melting soft from inside!
I have a big appetite and when there’s paratha on the menu and then it’s a must on my plate too. Aloo ka paratha was very appetizing and palatable! Served with curd and pickle in complete desi style. I liked the filling inside. Good texture and perfect spice.
There was omlett in nashta category so just gave it a try!
It includes chopped green chillies, chopped onions and a pinch of salt and pepper, voila! Nice, spicy, I also liked the finishing!
Chicken wrap and Paneer wrap were similar! Mixed veggies, Indian spice’s, mayonnaise & chicken/paneer stuffed in romali roti, served with Green chutney. Both were delicious and I couldn’t stop myself from having more.
This cone looked so conical, never mind🙄I was wondering which side should I start eating it from🤔
It was crunchy & gooey. The filling was whipped chocolate and the top was covered with thick chocolate paste. I enjoyed eating it.
Marble cake sounds funny but tasted really good. It was crumby and sweet.
Even date Walnut cake was good.
Last but not the least
The presentation was looking nice, and was served in the glass jar. It was just perfect! Perfect balance of coffee, it wasn’t strong which is a good sign. I liked it!
This strawberry drink was one of its own kind, I really enjoyed having it. I Would highly recommend it.
Shikanji~the base ingredients include lemon or lime juice, ginger juice, ice and water, shikanji often contains other ingredients such as salt, saffron and cumin. It was a nutritious drink rather!
So that’s it guys, I hope you enjoyed reading it and if you did so make sure you give a thumbs up!
