I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Tuesday

    omg what a find!


    There is a god.
    Proof?
    I come home from the gym all pumped with 'weight loss eagerness' and start on a soup for dinner.
    Only it turns into this brocolli flavoured spicy thick broth and boils like something in a witch's pot.
    I had to add some worms,.....i mean pasta to make it interesting.
    Then the refrigerator god blesses me and I find this yummy spinach-bhaji and okra-bhaji-with-tomato dish that I absolutely love in a container at the back of the fridge that presumably my mother had packed for me three weeks ago!!!!!!
    Heated over a fry-pan and spooned over a tortilla bread and I'm a happy kitty :D.
    Then I read Sim's post.
    Poor ducky stuck in Halifax.......wish I could mail you some naan and paneer makhni from 'Bombay Bhel'.

    What exactly is a bahji? I absolutely love okra. Have you ever had pickled okra? I could eat a whole jar in one go!

    Yumm.... by the way I loved going through the Tagore links and Satyajit Ray links..

    I just got myself a Tagore omnibus.. collecting them one by one.. Thakumar jhuli and all that.. :)

    Shirin: Bhaji is 'fried veggies with onion and spices'. Okra bhaji is just divine :D...but okra pickles? never heard of it!

    Pallavi: I'm so jealous. I've been thinking about restarting my 'thakurmar jhuli' collection but apparently they are not in publication in bangaldesh- or so my sis said :( I'll keep looking.
