    1. While we were travelling by the road in a place of Punjab and we took a break there after a long drive at a Dhaba, Dhaba is the Indian style Motel at the side of expressway, They served Chana Masala with Roti, Mixed Pickle, Green Chilli, Lime and raw onion. Really I can’t forget this food till now after 11 years.💖👌👍😍
