We were surprised to know that both have sent their Daughter to Rajasthan to study pharmacy and alreafy spend rs 5 lacs on the same. it is unbeleivable to see how tough it would have been for poor dhaba owners in remote himalayan village, but still they are happy and smiling and greeting rare customers enroute. Hats off to great family and couple.
We were surprised to see one young girl working at the dhaba, Our eyes met but Himachali Nazakat and Sharam took over her and we jerked our head to get on earth..we inquired and It was the same girl who was studying pharmacy, she was on vacation and helping parents in daily works which included back breaking utencil washing in ice cold water as well as cooking and serving the customers.
She was going back in 2 days time after vacations, We were surprised to see the family values and great love. We asked parents for any help, which they respectfully denied..
Hats off to Lohardi, and hats off to great parents of Lohardi Village..
We saw this old man extracting Rajmah ( Red Kidney beans) from Strings, the crop was from his own small field, but this was Organic Rajmah The Chitre Rajmah. We requested Old man to give us 2 kilos, which he flatly refused as he could not share because the Rajmah was for family consumption. even high price does not bend him, such was the commitment to family or miles apart from Maya..
Finally we told him that we have come from very far and it is a request...He finally agreed and gave his his treasure of Chitre Rajmah...
We got 2 kgs from old man, we reached home and first thing was to order servant to preare the same.....Incredible Taste of Lohardi Rajmah with basmati Rice..Incredible and Divine...2 kgs were finished in just 3 days...Now we need to go back to get more.....but when..the Lohardi is so faar.....
