  • different ones sure aside from the Pollack okay

  • I'll take some butter chicken - you want to look me up okay this one can be yours

  • I'll chew everything else otherwise we're all trying the same thing yeah so

  • do you wanna do you want to try the culture the do you want to have a girl

  • a toilet I mean I don't know if that curry was meant for someone else and it

  • just got mixed up but I don't know thank you or sorry for somebody who didn't get

  • what they tried the dal makhani they asked us if they want to mine is very

  • spicy and I was that bran yeah on the phone he was like how spicy do you want

  • it and we're like we like spicy it's so rich so rich and buttery love is

  • on fire but that is good okay I'm gonna try the chickpea curry here I'm trying

  • to pile up veneer this is delicious yeah all right guys we have loaded up our

  • plates because it was just so delicious that we kind of started eating and we

  • got carried away so let's do systematically you're you're you're in

  • charge you choose let's begin with the dal makhani which is dealer's straight

  • out of Amritsar so I already had someone cool too this time I'm trying it with

  • garlic naan okay and can you tell us a bit about this dish since you eat it so

  • frequently what I love about this particular curry the black lentils

  • buttery creamy sauce so rich spicy what do you think the lentils are just so

  • soft they like melts in your mouth and I like that the sauce is like really

  • buttery mm-hmm and almost a little bit creamy yeah yeah that is very good how

  • does it compare to what you were eating in India it's good it's sounding for

  • sure yeah and the real flavor is a real deal okay may even be spicier than some

  • of the ones we had because I they asked us over the phone you money

  • nobody seemed or like the a break it yes we like spice what are you gonna try

  • next okay let's do a logo we only farm potato I love the soft texture of the

  • cauliflower popular it melts in your mouth you don't even really have to put

  • much effort into the two intros hmm I was mostly having the cauliflower mmm so

  • good this is a fun way to eat cauliflower knowing you're a kid and

  • your parents want to feed you something all these are like probably probably

  • flour well my parents used to have to disguise

  • the broccoli like smothered in cheese or something because otherwise it's a bit

  • bland but when you add all these spices to it oh Allah Gobi is actually one of

  • the first Indian dishes I've ever had I ever tried yeah what should we try next

  • um how about one we both love palak paneer okay let's go for that Pollak mmm

  • nice and spinach II yeah a deep green hmm so rich mm-hmm and like this is

  • probably the spiciest palak paneer yes we asked I see across the board mouth is

  • on fire see we see out of all six I would say that palak paneer is the

  • spiciest of them all yeah I think your oh I need some water actually um all

  • right so chicken so far that's been my favorite I'm gonna actually how about

  • with the garlic for me butter chicken honestly it just brings back memories of

  • high school because where I live in Brampton we have a very large Indian

  • population so a lot of my school friends we're from India so when I would go over

  • to their houses for birthday parties they would usually have butter chicken

  • and there were also be like samosas and then we'd end up watching Bollywood

  • movies and then we have the Bollywood dancing in the base it was like so much

  • like yeah that's when I whenever I eat butter chicken it just brings back those

  • memories of like birthday parties in high school again that that's that's a

  • that's typically a gateway dish for people trying Indians

  • for the first time in Canada a lot of times butter chickens on the menu it's a

  • hit with everyone yeah like you said it's just so

  • delicious I think you're gonna really like the next one why don't we try the

  • paneer masala mmm that's great just such a richness nothing I love it and last

  • but not least what slice we have the cheese I need more bread

  • huh mm-hmm I'll take some garlic mm-hmm and then I'd like to hear some stories

  • from you from like your early travels in India before we knew each other yeah oh

  • there's plenty well it's totally awesome like they're all delicious

  • it's a the butter chicken in the palak paneer are my favorite so I'm loving

  • this nan the garlic one yeah it has like minced garlic and it is loaded okay oh

  • this is so good whoo it's bringing even more flavor to

  • the curries mm-hmm so tell us about your early travels in India well first time I

  • went to India I was a cultural hardcourt backpacker I probably had a budget of

  • less than $500 for the month oh wow I found India especially back then that

  • would've been in 2010 I was really able to stretch my budget okay like I also

  • have found accommodations for five to ten dollars a night I would this is back

  • before like online booking agencies we were common okay yeah I just I totally

  • just show up I get dropped off in a in a backpacker

  • friendly kind of area mm-hmm but then just wah I hit I hit the pavement and

  • start visiting places sometimes I'd have a few in wine that I wanted to check out

  • other times I totally win it and yeah that was such just such a different

  • experience back then that was a whole part of the adventure not having a smart

  • phone at the time not having a map yeah just arriving not really knowing where I

  • was so it was just that like it was like a different youth like almost like a

  • different universe in those days and it's a little bit more

  • adventurous I mean I'm not sure if I would give up the modern technology we

  • have now to go back in time but there's definitely it kind of like a nostalgic

  • feeling you have kind of like I don't know when you when you used to listen to

  • like records or VHS you know videotapes or whatever welcome in yeah yeah this is

  • just some of the stall jaqui memory for that type of for that period of time

  • and what I was doing is just kind of going out with my camera and just

  • wandering around for the day sometimes I'd have a couple attractions in mind

  • that I'd like to check out but other times I just like what a lot of it was

  • going with the flow I mean I I wasn't trying to work at travel like we do now

  • it was just pure travel Pyrrhic spear en shil back then so it's just whatever

  • whatever I got up to you I got up to you for the day yeah yeah I thought it was

  • so cool like in one of your Emirates our episodes that you actually found the

  • hostel yeah or the guest house where you had a stayed I just recognized this was

  • the place where I stayed on the very first time I went backpacking across

  • India it was called the cigar in guest house it's near the Golden Temple and it

  • looks exactly the same like over 10 years ago and it's still a

  • budget-friendly place yeah I mean for me I'm just the rice what I was at the

  • right age to be doing travel like that I don't think I'd like it as much no I

  • want to get more of a plan we're back then they were just like total

  • spontaneity I love that about you how about your first trip then yeah my first

  • trip this is before we knew each other it was okay so technically I was

  • supposed to be going to India with my friends and the plan was let's go to

  • India together and then we'll also do Thailand and we had about three weeks to

  • play around with and I remember going to her house and you were like starting to

  • plan the trip like the destinations how many days do we need an inch place and

  • her mom walked into the kitchen and she was like but you're not booking anything

  • right now right and she was like oh no no no

  • do that later and that probably should have been like my first little belt like

  • this girl is not going to come sure enough a few weeks later she's like yeah

  • actually I'm not gonna be able to go to India blah blah blah so then I was like

  • what am I gonna do like am I going to India by myself for a while but then my

  • other sister Ashley was like I'll come to India with you let's go together

  • because it was for my boss's daughter's wedding but like my boss it was super

  • cool he was basically like family everyone at work loved him they called

  • him uncle Francis so I got to meet him yeah um so yeah my sister and I ended up

  • going but we flew to Mumbai mm-hmm a few days before the wedding so like Ashley

  • and I were there on our own first time in India no smartphone no laptops no

  • nothing we were like this is pre this would be even before 2010 where anywhere

  • you want you mister didn't you before me maybe 2009 um but yeah we didn't know

  • what we were doing like we had no guidebook like I said no smartphones no

  • Maps so we just went out of our hotel and we started walking and we were

  • jet-lagged so we were like I would have four in the morning but it was already

  • daylight we were there in the summer and I just remember like walking along the

  • ocean and seeing the Sun come up and like it was fiery red and it's like

  • that's the Arabian Sea and then we walked to the the Gateway what's that

  • called in Mumbai Gateway of India yeah it was like wow there it is in front of

  • us and like we were just blown away but yeah we were just walking around

  • aimlessly without a plan I feel like that was the norm back then

  • No especially if you're backpacking yeah have a few you have a few points of
