Bharat Parv Food

Bharat Parv means “Festival of India”. It would not be a festival (mela) without food. Here are some photos of the stalls set out on the rain-sodden Raj Path lawns. All these photos were taken in August 2016.

Making Masala Dosa, fermented batter, toasted on a hot plate, with potato curry filling, rolled to make a cylindrical pancake. Man in the pink shirt is not impressed.



Chips. Yes, the Indians do eat curry with chips.
Shaved ice for cold drinks
Or Indian coffee for 11p a tiny cup.

Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.


  1. Those dosas look so good. Not had one since we lived in Nairobi with its excellent Indian restaurants. Have not been brave enough to attempt making same myself – envisaging batter-stuck-irretrievably-to-hotplate-outcome, and much swearing in the kitchen.
