Vada Pav-Cut Chai: This Mumbai staple makes an ideal monsoon breakfast

Summer is coming to an end, giving way to monsoons. In fact, some parts of India have already started to experience heavy rainfall. This then brought the temperature down and we thoroughly enjoyed the fresh air. Besides the verdant nature and patchy windows, what we enjoy most when there is a monsoon is our craving for delicious food. Monsoon is synonymous with chai, pakora, samosa and all things greasy and decadent. And we find ways to include these delicacies in our meals. Considering this, we offer the ultimate breakfast combo that will enhance the overall experience of the rainy season. Guess what?! It’s the ultimate vada pav with the bottle cut combo.

A staple for every Mumbaikar, vada pav defines comfort. Every morning, you’ll find people gathering in the water bar (chai-counter) to enjoy a spicy burger with a strong cup of tea. While we all know the term bottle cutting, have you ever wondered why it is called ‘cut’? According to Sudhir Malhotra, owner of CafĂ© Chai Bar, Mumbai, “People usually drink 2-3 cups of tea in a day. So the concept of bottle cutting came about. With bottle cutting, you drink half a cup of a bottle over and over again. ; but just the amount you’re drinking.” Learn how to make Mumbai’s special Vada pav and cut the bottle at home:
