Top 10 Best Foods To Eat In The Rainy Season

Monsoon is one of our favorite seasons; it is the perfect season after all, isn’t it? The climate is just right, not too hot, not too cold. The moderate temperature combined with the amazing cloud formations and cold rain droplets can heighten all your senses and please them at the same time. With such lovely weather all around, you are bound to feel like eating something that matches perfectly with the climate.

Rainy Season Special Food Items

When the heavens burst forth with a great roar, the bowels too demand some lip-smacking food with a roar of the same intensity! So, what is it about the monsoon that sets it apart from all the other seasons and makes you crave a different variety of food items? Well, nobody really knows the reason behind it but it is perhaps thanks to the beautiful climate that it brings along. But what we DO know is the awesome food that you can have to satisfy your hunger during the rainy season! Here are the best foods to eat in the rainy season.

1. Cutting Chai

The typical masala tea or ginger tea is the perfect thing to have in the cold rainy weather. This is one drink that beats all the others when it comes to the monsoon, and whether you are standing on the streets or inside a building, the combination of rain and tea is sure to improve your mood and give you a very comfortable feeling.

2. Pakora and Bhajiya

Ah! The feeling of having sizzling hot pakoras or bhajiyas on the street side while the clouds are pouring down on the city is heavenly. The spicy fried chilies that come with it along with the chutneys make the overall experience great. Combine this with some ‘Cutting Chai’ to give you the complete monsoon feeling.

3. Samosas

Yet another hot and crunchy item that we all crave for during the rainy season. These spicy food pockets are sure to heighten your senses and lift your mood when eaten while getting drenched in the rains. Make sure to take lots of fried chilies and spicy chutney along with it to give you an out of the world experience.

4. Bhutta (Corn)

Bhutta is nothing but corn stick that is cooked over a traditional coal gas to give it a burnt flavor. It is then topped with some tangy masala made from black pepper, salt, red chili powder, and lemon juice to give you a combination of all the flavors. The feel of eating this hot bhutta in the rain is worth experiencing.

5. Aloo Paratha

Hot aloo paratha with cool curd and some sour pickle makes up a complete meal and is one of the best food items to eat in the rainy season. The combination of hot aloo paratha and cold curd gives you a satisfying yet contrasting flavor, which when combined with the cool breeze and rain droplets hitting your face is nothing short of delightful.

6. Vada Pav

This typical Mumbai snack item is one of the best food items to have in the monsoon, if not THE best. The hot vadas stuffed in soft pavs along with spicy chutneys are served with green chilies to give you an all-round spicy feeling.

There is something about the combination of vada pav and the monsoon that makes it an all-time favorite of most people; this is one item that must not be missed during the monsoon and should preferably be eaten on the street side to get the complete feeling of satisfaction.

7. Pav Bhaji

This popular Mumbai dish is yet another food item that should be eaten in the rainy season. The hot and spicy bhaji is served with tava fried pavs which are soft and buttery. The combination of spicy bhaji, pavs, and chopped onions is great, and it becomes only better when eaten while enjoying the view of rains or after getting drenched.
