Every region of Indian has its own set of street foods that you only get there in their primitive form. If Delhi streets are full of samosa, kachori and momos, Mumbai will fill your heart will vada pav. The small city of Indore is also big on food. One of its street foods - bhutte ki kees is immensely popular there. Bhutta means corn and kees means grated. So, this Indore-special dish is made with crushed bhutte, flavoured with whole spices and cooked in milk. Bhutte ki kees is truly a special dish with its enticing melange of spiciness and creaminess.
The monsoon season sees a whole lot of us digging into roasted bhutte. Travel to the hills and you'll find a vendor selling butte on every turn.
