From Fryums To Boti, People Share Various Ways They Relished This Popular Childhood Snack


Buying imli, kachi kairi and 1 rupee frozen pepsi with my friends is the best memory of my childhood. And, even though my gang dines in fancy restaurants now, there’s something still magical about those corner wala shops we ran to after school.

Speaking of which, I recently stumbled upon a picture of one of my favorite raaste wala snacks. However, what’s intriguing about the picture shared by twitter user @realshailimore is its name. Do you remember the yellow fried snack that we used to put on our fingers and then savour? Well, apparently it’s known by different names in different cities.
