Home Delivery..

Grocery stores are innovative, they support free door deliveries in the nearby neighborhood, here is the delivery person taking a big load of grains to nearby customer, looking at the load it is safe to assume this is for a big family or a small restaurant loading up all monthly groceries...

Most of the city is busy watching India England world cup cricket in the stadium or at homes, but the businesses have to run all over weekend!!

Paddu is a indian fast food dish made by steaming batter, traditionally made from pulses (specifically black lentils) and rice using a mould. The cast iron mould/pan has seven holes and shallow fries the batter into round shaped delicacy!! This is a preferred option for quick snacking as well as made for eating on long distance trips / travel as it stays good without refrigeration...
Most of the food stalls will certainly have this option available along with idly and dosa as hot and fresh food unlike other fast frozen microwaved warmies!!
