Poha with Jalebi, Young Tarang, 56 Dukaan, Indore.
Breakfasts can easily get monotonous. I mean, they are like that music playlist of yours, basically the same songs being that you keep listening to with the only difference being the order of the shuffle. And needless to say, in this age of instant gratification, merely a shuffle can get boring after some time.
Poha has become an intrinsic part of that playlist for us over the years. It's simple, quick to make on hurried mornings, and can be had during transit as well with just a dash of lemon. Yet, it's a difficult art to master, with dryness being the most common issue when it comes to preparation.
However, if there is anyone who does Poha well, it has to be the Indoris. Much like a Matar Kulcha in Delhi, most vendors do a great job of this humble breakfast. The locals have their own favourites depending upon the location, and we ended up at Young Tarang, a well known one amongst that list of Poha havens.
Weren't disappointed. Really moist Poha, jazzed up with that lovely crunch from the masala boondi and a nice sprinkling of that delicious MP Sev along with some nimboo. The secret sauce though is that Jeeravan masala which rounds off the neutral flavors of the Poha really well.
And who would mind some contrasting flavors with a couple of sweet Jalebis to go with all the savory. This was one breakfast we ate to our heart's content and yet felt light at the end of.
