  1. Dear Mugdha
    baigani , I had forgotten the word until I reached Athgarh in February. The guy selling baigani in front of the school, at 3 paisa per piece is long dead...but his son is doing good business with Baigani, pakodi, Bara and can you believe, he also gives noodles with soya sauce also.
