WhamBam Mother Bhumi

Herne Hill market.







WhamBam-Mother Bhumi pride themselves on making the best bhajias and pakoras that money can buy and they are cooked right in front of you. They buy in wholegrain rice, lentils and spices, grind them themselves, mix up the batter, dip in some seasonal local organic veg, pop them into some sunflower oil and hey presto! They are irresistibly delicious nutritious allergen-free snacks which everyone can enjoy with a choice of dips to really tickle your tastebuds.

If you can't eat them right away then you can take a cold bag home to reheat and maybe even tell your friends you made them yourself! They are at Herne Hill market twice monthly and have been in the pakora business for 16 years now. It might seem crazy but they really do get better all the time! For those who care, they also have a very vigilant environmental policy which means they serve you on biodegradable trays and compost or recycle/reuse much of their waste. They use their sunflower oil once or twice only and then it becomes biodiesel. They are also gluten-free and vegan. This is food for the future!
