Vohuman Cafe, Pune

Vohuman Cafe 

Cheese Sandwich - the white chunk is the cheese :)
The bun maska and double egg cheese omelette

One of my colleagues recommended me to try the old Vohuman Cafe.The moment you enter the place you can feel the oldish irani charm, warmth. Go there any time of the day and you'll find it packed with people.Only concern is the parking but that should not stop you from visiting this superb place.The double egg and cheese omelette with bun maska and irani chai is a foodie's delight. Also try the cheese sandwich if you have the appetite to eat big chunk of cheese :). I could barely manage to finish the sandwich.

If  you compare the Cafe Good Luck and the Vohuman cafe cheese omelette  the difference is Cafe Good Luck adds cheese slice which readily melts with hot omelette  whereas the Vohuman Cafe omelette has big chunks of cheese. My verdict try the Vohumna cafe cheese omelette if you are a cheese fan. With each bite of this cheese omelette you definitely get loads of cheese chunks.

Must try : Double egg cheese omelette , bun maska, cheese sandwich and irani chai.

Dal cheela ( from left over dal)

Usually whenever we have dal as left over we end up making dal paranthaa for breakfast. I thought lets be innovative and experiment making cheela's from the leftover dal.  Fortunatley experiment turned out to be a hit and every one was ga ga about the dal cheela's for the breakfast.
A quick recipe of the dal cheela.
Dal Cheela

Prep Time - 5 mins
Cooking Time - 10 mins

1 cup leftover cooked dal (moong chilka)
4 tbsp gram flour (besan)
2tbsp curd
1 tsp chilli powder
Salt as per taste
Oil for frying

1. Mix all the ingredients together except water.
2. Add water as per requirement to make the batter.Batter should not be very runny.
3. Heat the tawa add a bit of oil . Spread the cheela mixture .
4. Once done from one side, flip and cook form the other side.
5. Serve hot with coriander chutney .

Tip - Do not add large quantity of curd because the cheela will then stick to the tawa.
