5 foods delicious dark and black! A Foodie’s black wish list!

Black is always in fashion, right?

Perhaps it isn’t the first color that pops into your mind when you think about food, but here are my five foods that can categorized as the best black food. And no they aren’t the halloween favourite foods but actual desi Indian food that mouter any foodie’s mouth!

Being a foodie myself I always find excuses to indulge in these sinful temptations in a while or two. But if you are intentionally looking to make a meal all in black you could try a few things like making snacks such as black licorice, chips, jellybeans or even, black olives to add in salads, sprinkled with a bit of black vinegar. It is very easy to make a meal all in black   fun and unforgettable too.

Here are five foods worth trying:


Kali urad ki  daal: (black lentil daal)

When served with roti and rice it makes you forget every single stress and you are left craving for more.Wholesome and delicious dish which every North Indian cannot have enough of!



Kala khatta baraf ka gola: Best enjoyed in scorching summer days , with the terrible heat, comes the time for much-loved ice gola. I still remember the “Tring Tring” sound of bottles of “Gole wala” in the blistering hard summer afternoon. A sip of “Baraf ka gola” would make me freshly fresh….I wish for a lifetime supply of these kala yum delights.



Black forest cake:I love this dessert because "it's heavy, and feels very sinful." The cake is decorated with additional whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and chocolate shavings. WHAT THE BLACK ! I know so delicious ! Several layers of chocolate cake, with whipped cream and cherries between each layer make me want to devour this in huge quantities, to hell with calorie intake and weight gain :D



Black pepper pani wale panipoori!

What’s life without spice? These sweet , sour and spicy pooris dripping with black water melt into your mouth. I have always been a die hard fan of this snack !  A proud winner of all pani poori competitions with friends !



I love the sugar rush they provide to the body every time I bite into a date but heck no I don’t want the ordinary dates but I desire the super soft yummilicious dates right from the holy place in Saudi arabia into my house ! Pretty please? I love them like hell and with no one visiting SA I am left hanging for a taste of these black beauties !
