Know your batasas


287, Dukargully, Dhobi Talao (presently Dr. C. H. Street).

When customers at the Paris Bakery ask about the price of a packet of batasa biscuits, Paris’ proprietor Danesh Nejadkay offers them a sample instead. ‘Once you taste, you are trapped,’ Nejadkay insists. Indeed Paris’ Maska Batasas are the tastiest dollops of butter (with a hint of jeera cumin) in town.

Nejadkay shares some batasa wisdom with us- Bite into a batasa don’t break it, offer or accept it with your right hand, soak it in a cup of tea for a minute or two, let it ‘blow up’ and then have it with a spoon.

  1. ALL HIS PRODUCTS ARE BEST IN TOWN. DANESH KNOWS HOW TO WIN CUSTOMERS. WHEN YOU GO TO BUY ONE OF THE PRODUCTS, HE GIVES OTHER PRODUCTS TO TASTE. THATS A SURE WAY TO ROPE IN CUSTOMERS

  2. Please give us the recipe for your yummy batasas, I live in Canada, Montreal, and we cannot get the batasas here. Thank you.
