Chaayos – Monsoon Treat!

Monsoons are always special, and special weather does call for special treatment. On a rainy day, all we need piping hot pakoda, garam chai and cozy place on the inside. That’s exactly what Chaayos at Lower Parel offers you during this season, located in Todi mills just about 900 meters away from the Lower Parel station and easily accessible.

The place has great vibe, spacious two level seating, quirky paintings, and metallic décor; having cycles, upside down umbrella’s etc.

Shahi Chai

We started with Shahi Chai: Smooth textured chai having Rabdi, Saffron and garnished with almonds. The chai is different yet delicious having a distinct Elaichi flavor. Try in this weather for sure.

Pahadi Chai

Pahadi Chai, also known as Himalayan tea, it has a great amount of garam masala and served piping hot. The tea is best suited for a cold climate and best to have in case of cold or cough.

Paneer Loaded Open Paratha

Paneer Loaded Open Paratha; Contrary to the traditional paratha, this one is served on a thin layer made up of fine flour only, which is crunchy and topped with finely cooked Paneer in Indian spices. The Paratha is sliced just like the pizza; making it easy to eat. Highly recommended.

Kulhad Masala Chicken Kulcha

Kulhad Masala Chicken Kulcha: The Kulcha is like a pizza base, thick, fluffy and very soft, topped with finely chopped red chilli, served with two kulhad filled with hot masala chicken, the chicken is tender, chopped into small pieces and made in spices which is not very spicy and not sweet at all. This is my personal favorite of the lot and should definitely be tried.

Bun Samosa

Bun Samosa: The twist to the famous Samosa Pav, instead of a pav its served with a bun, having green chutney paste on the lower base and tamarind base to the upper bun with a Samosa stuffed in between.

Overall, the place is nice to visit with friends or colleagues and one such where you can spend hours together. It’s a self service place, from orders to getting water, it’s all about self service; after all, getting up again and again is actually good for health 😉
