I keep telling myself , I'll put up this post when I click better images. Unfortunately time's running out and i decided to just put up what I have and keep updating as an when. Saturday Bazaar finally graces my blog!
I have no clue what these are, I'm warned of how sour they are but am drawn to them by virtue of their warm color
Garlic from Lunglei
Ginger- Local and with a skin so soft that it peels when you wash the mud of it!
Beans- local again and sold in pre measured bundles like pretty much all other vegetables here.
Bananna Flower- Local and available quite regularly.
The plentiful greens! Tasted many and clueless about the rest
The smaller catch is from the Kaladan which flows through Kawlchaw about 35 Km from Saiha.
The larger ones have traveled over 3000 km all the way from Andhra Pradesh
If you cannot make it to the market. The veggies come to you! Often women go door to door with a basket full of greens
And in case it is the basket that your heart desires, well that too you might find on a Bazaar day (Saturdays)!
Wrap up the trip with some ice cream, or better still watch the toddlers wolf them down!
