Eating Indian -

The "pau" actually reflects the Portuguese history of Mumbai - as far as I know pau in Portuguese means bread.

Thanks Monica. Though the Portuguese were in Kerala from 1498 to 1663 until the Dutch overthrew them, they didn't mange to popularize their breads to the rice eating population of Kerala. Of course we gladly accepted their chili peppers, pineapple and cashews; but bread is a different story.
