October 27 (Sat) - Day 14: custard apple shake
Devar drove me around the city today. First we went to this men's tailor he found at some underground place (!!!) of a building, gave some of the cloth pieces for his shirt and trousers. On the way home we bought fruits from the stalls we saw on
road. Since neither of us had any idea how to buy fruits and how much
they'd cost, after reaching home I realized that it is safe to say we
were ripped. Oops.
But the best part of my day was when we went to Mayur Pan Shop in Abids. I have been there many times before to have chaat, pav bhaji, sandwich, pan,
fruit shakes, etc. But today for the first time in life I drank custard
apple (sitaphal) shake and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. Custard apples are in season
and devar insisted I try it. I was hesitant, because I was
doubtful about the million seeds in a custard apple crushing along with
the pulp in a juicer.
But the thick, slightly sweet, chilled, completely seedless, and very pulpy
custard apple shake from Mayur is the BEST thing to try in
the month of October. And it is only Rs. 50 ($1...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) for each
hearty glass filled to the brim.
Ahhhhhhhh. I think I just died and went
into custard apple heaven.
