I was watching the movie ‘Bajrangbali’ where Hanuman is shown eating all the food in Seetha’s kitchen and asking for more. Having just finished showing Ganesha enjoying a typical Tamil style meal, I realized that I had stumbled onto something much bigger.
Hence, I decided to do a piece showing Hanuman enjoying various popular North Indian vegetarian cuisines. Of course, this is only a small island in the vast sea of the Indian Food.
The items on the plate in clockwise order from the 1 'o’ clock position - Bhel Poori, Banana, Naan, Vegetable Pulao and Methi Paratha.
