Monsoon – The most awaited season is welcomed with open arms after a tiring and scorching summer. Cool showers bring down the soaring temperature. The weather becomes cool, lazy and romantic. Monsoon is a season to rejoice. Monsoon may not be our favorite due to water logging and interrupted transport services but it is our most favorite because of the delicacies we can crave and munch on this food for rainy season. Fried pakodas, bhajiyas , wadas are the most desired food for this season in every house. Let’s not forget monsoon is not complete without “Corn”.
