CULINARY ADVENTURE WITH CHEF JOLLY #NH48 PART 5 MANGALORE


Our next leg of the journey started by waking up at around 4 am getting ready and rushing out to catch a glimpse of fishermen community at mangaluru's port bunder. 

Mangalore (or Mangaluru) is an Arabian Sea port and a major commercial center. Popularly known by the name Bunder. The port is located towards south of Mangalore, the port opens by 5 am trawler boats line up one by one, fresh catch is auctioned to local restaurant owners and dealers supplying to other states...this is a sight so electrifying cant be explained. 

The port was used to ferry goods and passengers to Lakshadweep island and Middle East countries. Now fishing has become main activity of this harbor. 







We were trilled to see the bustling activity at the port and fish market. After breakfast we headed back to our hotel room to fresh up. Chef Jolly and team had spotted an island where they wanted to camp and host a cook off...the team of chefs were geared up to cook some scrumptious seafood for us. 

Our crew was ferried to this remote magical island and we enjoyed camping there the cook off started with grilled prawns, pomfret in green masala and anjal fry. Inspired by the cook off I created my own concoctions...

We enjoyed the cook off and relaxed a bit before heading back to the city. One cannot leave mangaluru without trying some gadbad icecream. All of us headed to pabbas a popular destination for magaloreans. Gadbad is 3 different flavored icecream served in a tall tumbler with fruits and jelly. This treat was much needed  as it was super humid...
