Monsoon is that season, when your heart and brain, by default start feeling good. When the heavens burst forth with a great roar, your tummy too demands some lip-smacking food with a roar of the same intensity! So, what is it about the monsoon that sets it apart from all the other seasons and makes you crave a differentÂ variety of food items? Well, nobody really knows the reason behind it but it is perhaps thanks to the beautiful climate that it brings along.

Letâ€™s have a look at 10 drool worthy food items that can be enjoyed during this rainy season:

Mouth-watering pakoras and a cup of tea is a mind-boggling combination, during the monsoon. You can alter your choice by choosing from wide range of onion pakora, potato pakora, cauliflower pakora and paneer pakora. Homemade or buying those from street-side, pakoras are the best option, topped with mint sauce and imli chutney.
