En route to Mumbai, we had a five-hour stopover in Hubli. To bide the time we went for breakfast at a small, hole in the wall, Indian style diner where Shawn introduced me to his favourite type of Indian bread, Puri.
Puri is a chapatti that puffs up into a balloon like shape when you fry it. It came with a dry coconut chutney and a samba style curry. The texture of the bread was undeniably satisfying... soft and chewy with a thin crispy outer coating. It was so good I almost ordered a second one! After our delicious breakfast we went in search of an internet café to pass some time, which is where I spent an hour trying to thwart the efforts of the sole employee from reading my private emails!
