Bharuch’s Roasted Salted Peanuts – How much I Paid to the Vendor on the Train?

Roasted Salted Peanuts from Gujarat (India)

Bharuch’s Roasted Salted Peanuts – Rs. 70 per 500-gram I paid to the vendor on the train though he was asking for Rs. 100.

Bharuch in Gujarat is famous for roasted salted peanuts, and I always try to buy them during the train journey via vendor but this time I was traveling via GOLDEN TEMPLE M (12904) and Bharuch was not on the train schedule but still, a vendor was present and I purchased Bharuch’s roasted salted peanuts.

Note: I remember in February 2014 for 500-gram Bharuch’s roasted salted peanuts, I paid Rs. 50 only.

Good bargain? – Yes or No?

Where Do I Had The Best Kachori in Vrindavan?

Where can I have the best Kachori in Vrindavan? – I question my local friend.

He took me to RadhaVallabh Kachori wala located a little further from Hari Nikunj Chowraha and a little before Vidyapeeth Chouraha on the right-hand side.

Kachori is also known as Bedai in Vrindavan. Here you will enjoy Kachori/Bedai with aalu (potato) sabzi (gravy) mixed with dahi (curd). You will love it. It is one of the most famous breakfasts of brajwasi and one of the finest, most authentic Kachori/Bedai of Vrindavan. Delicious Kachori/Bedai with sabzi at a reasonable price. They make out of the world, yummiest urad daal stuffed Kachori/Bedai – said, my local friend.

How old is your kiosk – I question to RadhaVallabh Kachori/Bedai wala.

20+ years – He replied.


8 am – 1 pm.

Delicious breakfast to start my day. Better to visit by bike or on foot.

Service was fast. Within minutes super hot Kachori/Bedai was served with gravy mixed with curd on a disposable plate made from leaves.

Traditional taste, absolutely yummy. Kachori/Bedai is crispy with gravy/curd and is so tasty. It’s a treat for my taste buds. Ultimate snacks. One of the best I have eaten to date. Love the style of gravy they prepare. Awesome taste.

RadhaVallabh Kachori/Bedai wala kiosk is not fancy. Very simple arrangements and very few seats for sitting arrangements but not to worry when the Kachori/Bedai is excellent.

And the cost?

Rs. 15 per piece along with unlimited gravy.

Cheap – isn’t it?

I must say my local friend was not wrong. Great place to start the day. Incomparable. Would love to visit again. Worth visit.

A big thumbs up for RadhaVallabh Kachori/Bedai wala. A fine place for breakfast. Can try one more another day for the sake of Vrindavan.

The owner is very polite.

I stayed a few days in Vrindavan and for three days early morning hours I visited RadhaVallabh Kachori/Bedai wala and had Kachori/Bedai.

It is so awesome…..I vouch for it….mouth-watering….satiating Indian snack.

It’s no wonder the shop is local and now my favorite too. Do visit once.

In short, RadhaVallabh Kachori/Bedai wala is the place where I had the best Kachori/Bedai in Vrindavan.

Clean Shave/Head Massage in Vrindavan – How much I Paid?

SMART LOOKS MEN’S PARLOUR at Raman Reti in Vrindavan, I visited for a clean shave/head massage.

The barber first applied Gaily Face Wash before going for a clean shave.

Gaily Face Wash was a new experience. Never experienced it before.

In different cities, different ways of barbers to make the beard soft before the clean shave.

Few apply Dettol mixed with water, Few apply cream, and Few face wash.

After the face wash, Gillette foam was applied for a clean shave.

The results – As similar as any other salon.

How much are the charges for a clean shave?

Rs. 50 only.

Cheap – isn’t it?

How much for a head massage? – I question.

Rs. 100 with ‘Thanda Thanda Cool Cool’ Navratna oil  – said the barber.

Please do – I requested.

Head/Shoulders/Arms and Back were massaged strongly.

Why don’t you apply hair color? – the barber question.

Which brand do you use for hair color?

Matrix – The barber replied.

Never heard of –  a thought.

And the charges?

Rs. 250 – said the barber.

Anyway, not now. Maybe some other day.

All I can say is – The clean shave was as good as in any other barbershop but yes, I enjoyed the face wash and the massage.

Yes, the barbershop was air-conditioned having only 4/5 people seating arrangements, and the timings were 9:30 am to 9:30 pm.

Vrindavan to Mathura Jn via E-Rickshaw – How much I Paid?

Vrindavan to Mathura Jn – How to reach especially early morning hours?

Auto and E-Rickshaw – two options?

GOLDEN TEMPLE (12904) – The train was at 05:50 am at (MTJ).

I decided to hire/book an entire auto or an E-Rickshaw a day before so that the train is not missed.

I met Neeraj Nishad (0-95573 87475) an E-Rickshaw driver who was ready to drop me at Mathura Jn the next day early morning hours.

Vrindavan to Mathura Jn – The fare?

Rs. 300 – Neeraj said.

I tried to bargain for Rs. 250 but he said that the fare he said is the genuine one.

Done – said I.

The next day early morning at 4:30 am he arrived at my Vrindavan friend’s house and dropped me at Mathura Jn at 5:05 am.

The total journey hours from Vrindavan to Mathura Jn (15 km approx.) were 35 minutes.

If I remember correctly in the year September 2013 I paid Rs. 250 for an entire auto booking from Vrindavan to Mathura Jn as I was getting late to catch the train. Rs. 300 as per my knowledge is the correct fare. What say? Agree or not?
