Let's Celebrate!

We all love celebrations, and look forward to opportunities of celebrating throughout the year. This time of the year - from August to December - is loaded with various types of festivals. Especially, Maharashtrian festivals, starting in month of Shravan and running through grand Diwali celebrations, are incomplete without food. Let it be Puran Poli, Ladoo, Chiwda, Chakli, Bakarwadi, etc etc, all delicacies are prepared, served, distributed, and enjoyed with love and fun.

Catching up with this celebration fever, we started out with supply of the most favorite Maharashtrian item - Puran Poli. Yes, we are the guys behind After several Pune foodies have received our e-mails, and many of you even ordered and tasted our Puran Poli's, we are now officially launching our venture, “Khawakee”.

What is special with Khawakee?
- To start with, we have picked up the most difficult to cook item, Puran Poli. Product details are given below, but you have to taste it once before you believe our words!
- You can order Puran Poli's through e-mail or phone, and get them delivered at your doorstep, at your convenient time.
- No minimum order limit for free home delivery. You can order 2,4,10,30, whatever number of packs you need. We are covering many locations in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad now.

- For curious and curiouser, our Puran Poli weighs approx 120gms, is made of wheat flour, jaggery with flavor of Nutmeg (jaayfal) and Cardamom (ilaaychi).

We will be supplying many more festival special food items, so keep in touch with us at – or

Khawakee - Love of Eating!

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.” - Pavarotti

Very true, isn't it? When it comes to eating, can you imagine doing anything else? More philosophically, can you imagine life without eating? No, it's not just about starving. We believe that eating is not just a necessity; it's also a way of celebrating life!

“If man ate only to fulfill his hunger, he wouldn't have built kitchens!”

Have you ever wondered? If eating was a necessity – for all living beings, why none of the animals or birds have kitchens? If they can eat whatever they can as it is, why can't man do it? He can, but he doesn't. Doesn't it prove that man thinks of eating as something beyond necessity?

Not only does man (and woman, too) loves to eat, but also spends huge amount of time thinking about it. Let it be recipes, calories, taste, feast, or even research on eating habits. Found this funny research result somewhere -

“French people eat until they're full, Americans eat until the food's gone”

(Ha ha! Now we know why French people are skinnier than Americans, despite the chocolate, wine, cheese, and pastry.)

Jokes apart, what do we really feel about eating? How much importance do we give to eating, in our routine life? What decides our eating habits? No no, we are not conducting any survey here. This is just to provoke your thoughts and encourage eating :) Because eating is our source of inspiration, both physically and mentally. Let's connect through this most common love of our life – food!

Watch out this place for more thoughts and updates about eating.

Enjoy Eating,
Khawakee Team
