Clearly, there are ample of reasons why we're obsessed with Lucknow ki sardi.
Winters are definitely our favourite when in Lucknow, given that the city catches a much-needed break after the sweltering summer months and this season brings along an array of things, to warm our hearts and souls. The chilly air brushing against our hair, warm kisses of the sun making up for it, foggy evenings amidst the backdrop of blurry lights, colliding heat of roadside bonfires, kadak adrak chai with toasted moongphali on the sides- we can go on forever! Clearly, there are ample of reasons why we're obsessed with Awadh's winter season but we have come down to 6 of the best ones.

But during winters, especially in the evening, the vibe of MD is unmatchable and we just simply love being here. You'll find people passing by, munching on <em>moongphalis</em> while gossiping with their gang, having a<em> chai-sutta</em> sesh and all of this, wrapped with winter chills and floating blankets of fog.
