• And we all thought the food cart was such a novel idea. As it turns out, Indians have been chowing down street-side for decades, if not centuries. The savory snacks sold in the makeshift stalls by the side of the road are collectively called “chaat,” a word derived variously from cāṭ (tasting, a delicacy), cāṭnā (to lick), and our personal favorite caṭṭei (to devour with relish, eat noisily). We’re just going to say it: while tales of sub-continental gastric distress abound, to miss out on street food in Mumbai would be a pity. Indigestion be damned, sometimes you just have to go for it.
