India's best street-food treats

Published November 3rd, 2015

My annual trip to India consists of catching up with family, sweating a little too much, and eating lots of good food.

Street food is by far my favorite, basically a class unto itself, and, as a vegetarian, it's particularly awesome. I rounded-up a list of my favorites that you won't want to miss when you're next in the country.
