Budhram famous in Jamia among its students and alumni died of heart attack today, according to post on the social media.
Nasir Sultan Qazi wrote on his timeline: “A man who introduced the new recipe called chole fry is no more. Bhudram we will miss your tasty chole during our next alumni meet in November.”
It is understood that many will miss his chole. During old time his chole fry was a hot cake and used to sell like anything when store at Jamia was alive and kicking.
After it was dismantled during the time of General Mohammad Ahmed Zaki (retired army general) Budhram moved his mobile shop to somewhere else with his business being hit.
Many a time, he was seen selling chole fry at Ghaffar Manzil entrance on the Jamia Road.
Though his popularity diminished over the years, alumni continued to remember him and when a few years ago the first Maulana Mohd Ali Jauhar Dinner was organised, Budhram was invited to park his chole fry at Abul Fazal Enclave.
His stall attracted huge crowd with old timers seen relishing the chole fry. Some even became nostalgic.
Many recalled the old days with some getting photo clicked with him. Such was the popularity of Budhram who was loved and respected by all, mainly by the foodies.
