On World Food Day, Gwalior natives, Sarika Bahroliya and Abha Parmar shares their favourite local cuisine and food destinations in Gwalior

There is so much diversity in Indian cuisines, with each region having its distinctive culinary characteristics and numerous traditional dishes. Culinary diversity is one of India’s most significant treasures. On World Food Day, Gwalior natives and &TV artists, Sarika Bahroliya (Gudiya)and Abha Parmar (Putli Bai) from Gudiya HumariSabhi Pe Bhari goes on a Gwalior food trail to share their favourite local cuisine and eateries in the city. Says, Sarika,“I am a total ‘Chatori’ when it comes to food and my city, Gwalior offers a vast variety in cuisine, especially for the vegetarians. From kachoris, Samosas, Poha and Bedai to local cuisines like kebabs, Bhutte Ki Kees, Dal Bafla, Jalebi, Imarti, Rogan josh, Mawa-Bati, Malpua and the Morena Gajak. My personal favourites are Bahadura Ki Kachaudi, and Laddu, a shop at Kampoo serves the best Motichoor Laddu and Desi Ghee Ki Kachaudi; Poha and Jalebi, Samosa, Bedai, Kachori with Aalooki Sabzi and Chutney. Adding to this, Abha Parmarsays, “For authentic Gwalior cuisine, one has to visit the iconic SS Kachoriwala, BahadooraKeLadoo and Aggarwal Poha Bhandaar. Also, the traditional paanipuri comes with a twist, called Lambipaanipuri, shaped like a little cucumber.  And a Karela Chaat, like a paprichaat, substituting the papri with the eponymous karela, a deep-fried mass of flaky dough sheets served with warm matra curry, akin to ragda in Mumbai.For traditional sweets, one must try PethaGilori at Panchhiraj, Paneer Jalebi at Jodhpur MishtaanBhandaar and Morena Gajak at Daulat Ram GajakBhandaar. My message for World Food Day to everyone is that we all should be grateful for the food we get every day and should avoid wastage, and instead feed the hungry.”

Paisa Vasooli

If there is one thing constant in &TV’s Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai are the fun antics and bickering between Tiwari Ji (Rohitashv Gour) Vibhuti (Aasif Sheikh). This time it is a matter of ₹60,000. Vibhuti owes money to Tiwari but unable to payback. Meanwhile, Amma (Soma Rathod) tells Tiwari to feed the needy without seeking Angoori (Shubhangi Atre)’s help as instructed by Pandit Ramphal. Angoori tells Vibhuti about this, and he suggests feeding TMTTeeka, Malkhan, Tillu (Vaibhav Mathur, Deepesh Bhan, Saleem Zaidi) who are needy, and Tiwari agrees. Clearly, Vibhuti has a plan hatched to escape the hefty amount he owes Tiwari. TMT hog food as if they have not eaten for days. Later Tillu informs Tiwari that Malkhan has fallen sick. Soon Tiwari finds out that Malkhan is no more! He refuses to believe it and asks for proof. Vibhuti then asks Malkhan to fake his death and pretend as a dead body in the kabristaan. Sneakily, Vibhuti asks Tiwari to compensate Teeka and Tillu for Malkhan’s death. Instead, Tiwari agrees to pay Malkhan’s family – his father and wife. Now, Vibhuti is once again in a fix, and how will he find a way out of this? Says, Aasif Sheikh (Vibhuti),Tiwari and Vibuti are constantly at loggerheads in trying to outdo each other to impress each other’s wife. But this time the situation is different. Vibuti owes Tiwari money, and he is unable to payback. In trying to get out of the situation, he lays a trap for Tiwari but hilariously lands himself in his web of lies. But will he or will he not get caught is the question? Do watch yet another fun and entertaining episode and find out for yourself!”
