BUNS at Karwar

The best  thing to do when you travel  is do what the locals do. So here I was in Karwar and landed up on the beach for a morning walk in the early hours-watching the sky change its colours, The fishermen untangle there nets to send their catch to the market. The lazy one setting out for to collect their share of nature's bounty.

Here is a group preparing for tommrow, mending their nets


After the walk we land up in a road side shop for coffee and we see the the morning rays on VADA and BUNS. Buns?  I had not heard of it it. It looks a bit like Puri and a bit like Kachori. Its normally eaten with vegetable curry, and is quite filling. I prefered to have it without the curry since it was a bit sweet- on account of the banana added to the dough. My cousin, passionate about food as I am, blogs profusely at  http://kannadacuisine.blogspot.com/
I am sure she would love to gather the recipe for buns. It would be so nice if somebody could do it.

Enjoy this Buns with vada

I always wondered why they are called 'buns', even in singular :) Nice post and photos. I really enjoyed browsing through your blog. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

I too wonder why they are called so. probably 'coz banana goes into it? Thanks Pratap for your kind words.

Sweet like puri and kachori ? Then I think it's similar to north Indian dish called 'pua', especially when banana is added to it.

And I am drooling now. Slurrrpp....

Pua? Unfortunelty Nisha, I have not heard of it. Which part of N. India? Now I want to taste this.
