BRS MLC Kavitha yields to gastronomic predilections on a visit to the Kamakhya temple in Assam

Pick one from the plate, swipe (not dip) it in the red chutney, and take a bite. The piping hot momo will explode in the sophisticated palate, especially if devoured in a cool environment.

It is one gastronomical pleasure one could enjoy up in the blue mountains where Goddess Kamakhya resides. BRS MLC K Kavitha had one such blissful moment while on a spiritual trip to the Kamakhya Devi Temple in Assam.

She shared the moment on X. “Stepping into the divine aura of Kamakhya Devi Temple, a beacon of strength, faith, and devotion. I prayed for the well-being, healthy life, and prosperity of loved ones, well-wishers, and the people of Telangana.”

Her visit was ahead of the Assembly polls in Telangana, and the Lok Sabha elections that follow. With the current scenario, no one knows if both would be clubbed. Taking no chances, the MLC prayed to Kamakhya, the desired as well as the granter of all desires.

Energised by divine power, she told media persons at the temple that with the blessings of deity, the BRS would retain power in Telangana and continue to serve the people.

It was during the trip to the temple that she came across a mobile momos eatery, and sat down to relish the dumpling.

Momos are dumplings, whose origin could be traced to Tibet and Nepal. But they made a foray into India and became the favourite snack of the people in the northeastern states. They are made with flour, meat, vegetables, cheese or mushrooms. They are eaten with a spicy achar made of tomatoes, sesame seeds, chilies, cumin, and coriander.
