In the Marathi language, the word khau refers to treat and is popularly used by elders when they have to pamper a kid or stop him from whining. They would say something like - "Khau hava asel tar shant bas!", which translates to -"Shut up if you want some treat!".
Then according to legends, the kid would be taken to some street where he would eat his khau like Kumbhkaran. And that's how I think the term Khau Galli became relevant.
Over the years khau gallis have become a popular hangout spot for Mumbaikars wanting to experiment with different dishes at one place. From Mutton Kebab Pav to Pink Pasta, you will find some really interesting food out here on the streets. So come, let's have a look at these khau gallis in Mumbai.
