Review: Highway on My Plate

Roadside eating in India is serious business and a topic of much discussion in every house in our country. The highways are dotted with interesting eateries, dhabas that make stopping and eating mandatory!  So if you are on the highway or a town and you want to know the best place to stop and eat at, look no further, you now have a book that serves specifically that purpose! The book, Highway on My Plate, is a definitive guide to roadside eating in India.

Adapted from the hit TV series on NDTV Good Times, Highway on My Plate lists great eats to be found on every major Indian highway. The best part of it is that the book has been written keeping both vegetarians and non-vegetarians in mind. The book offers an honest and no hold barred opinion on all these roadside dhabas at the same time offering details on what is to be found at these places.

So the hosts Rocky and Mayur guide you to a list of amazing places. The book gives the reader a chance to check out Punjab’s legendary Kesar Da Dhaba (estd in 1916) renowned for its parathas and kaali dal, the kachoris (called kachoras) from chawani Lal Halwai in Rajasthan….
Packed with information this book is an essential must have if you are a foodie or a frequent traveler on Indian roads.
