Indore Street special – Bhutte ka kees

It was fun celebrating New Year with old besties. Finally, after a long break we all met at Indore for my best friend’s sisters weeding. Most I enjoyed was food apart from spending time with my best friends.

I love socializing, attending events, wedding reason we get to relish most variety of food under one roof. Here too one dish just won my heart – Bhutte Ka Kees . This is such a lip-smacking dish, that I ask the chef making there at counter to right away share the recipe. Trust me this dish is a must try, especially during winters its most stomach filling.

So, here I am sharing this recipe of what I remembered with all my friends hope, you too like it

Bhutte Ka Kees is a street food of Indore; you would find many local vendors selling it. As a student, I love to hog on chatpata khaana. This dish is made by both Marwari’s and Maharashtrian’s. In simple way, I would call it a corn upma.
