The heart of India - Indore #madeofgreat

As you type “food capital of India” in Google, the second option will very well describe which city I am going to talk about today.
It is the commercial capital of the heart of India, Street food capital of India, Ahilyanagari and the only city in India to have a unique IIT-IIM blend; yes I am talking about “Indore”.

I have a deep connection with this city as it is also my hometown. For the last 10 years I have seen it excel in all sectors, as a result is ranked among the top 20 livable cities in India.

     bhutte ka kees, sev & other namkeens, deep fried garadu, bhajiyas and khadai milk.
