Bigg Vada Paav at Kothrud

In Pune, we had a pleasant rainy atmosphere. It was the first day after lockdown was lifted. We had a list of items to do. After two and half months, we moved out of our area. We were looking for food outlets that we cherished, but we were disappointed to find all of them closed for serving. To our surprise, there was a brand new outlet serving Vada Paav in Kothrud. And there was a pleasant attendant to welcome us. I asked for a parcel of two Vada Paav. The person behind the mask, Parag Bharat Kanhere recommended their proprietary Kharda Vada Paav. I was hesitant to go for it thinking it would be too spicy Vada Paav. But as per his recommendation, decided to give it the try. The outlet is brand new and looked hygienic. Vada Paav was really big as the name indicates. Kharda Vada Paav is not too spicy, but tasty with the flavour of green chillies. Red chutney applied to the Paav had good flavour. Also to my surprise, there was mayonnaise sauce with kharda flavour applied to the Paav. It was the wow factor. Can say that Big Vada Paav made our first outing after lockdown a memorable one. Thank you team Bigg Vada Paav! Location: Sarthak Terraces, Opposite Gandhi Lawns, Kothrud.

Idli Snacks

Some people love to have idli anytime and in any form, few simply hate it as idli does not have any taste as such. It goes well with traditional supplements like sambar or chutney.

Today I tried a new dish using steamed Idli as the base and loved the way it tastes. It's a good option for breakfast if you have idli dough ready at home.

Steam the idli and cut it in small pieces. Spread green chilly and coriander chutney over it. Sprinkle some chat masala and grounded sugar over it.

Cut fresh coriander and spread it over the idli pieces. Now heat the small kadhai and put one tablespoon of butter in it. Put some jeera and mustard and let it sputter. Add a pinch of hing and green chilies in it. Pour all hot contents on the idli base in the kadhai and it's ready to serve!

Khawakee is back!

Dear Customers!

Khawakee made a humble start eight years ago, purely out of love to cook and serve. Over the next few years, we expanded our menu from Puran Poli and Ukadiche Modak to several veg and non-veg meal items, biryanis and curries, etc. Many of you have also been our regular customers at previous Khawakee outlet at Kothrud.

After happily running the business for six years, we had to make a choice between Khawakee and certain other projects at hand. We decided to temporarily close down Khawakee, but it always remained at the back of our minds. Many of our customers including you kept contacting us, asking to restart Khawakee as soon as possible.

So, the love of eating, cooking and serving has brought us back. We have started accepting small orders for a limited range of meal items for now. Do visit our website or Whatsapp on 9552580321 for latest menu and rates.

We are very much excited to resume from where we had paused. Sharing the excitement with all of you through this short video. Enjoy watching... Enjoy eating!

Watch this latest affair in tne town...

Thank you and Good Bye

Dear customers and well-wishers,

We know it's the April Fool's month, but this news - however sad - is very true... After six experimenting and enriching years, we have decided to close Khawakee. It was a pleasure to serve you over the years. As of now, we do not have any plans to reopen in future. This blog and our website will continue to exist, in memory of our joyful interactions and in the hope of us coming back to serve you again... Thanks for being with us!

Yours sincerely,
Sharmishtha and Mandar Khawakee
