Sunday mornings normally start late around 7 in the morning with the tea tray and 3 Sunday papers . The teapot is a little larger than my weekday one to help me browse through the Sunday papers and the supplements . The quest for breakfast begins a little later - sometimes it enatils a drive to Annapurna on Lansdowne Road where we pick up a packet of phuchkas , dhoklas and khandvi and phephraas hot off the stove .
At times we hare off to Prema Vilas for idlis , dosas and vadas or to Maharanis or Sree Hari for kachuris and alu sabzi or chholar dal . The Sree Hari chholar daal has a unique taste which I have never been able to replicate although I suspect some gur or molasses goes into it - not sugar .
Most times we eat luchi with alu chhenchki and look for ways and means to innovate with the tuber .
Last week BRG came up with this recipe for the potato curry with the luchis . It was a little unusual but with a distinctive flavour .
- 500 gms potatoes - diced small
- Fenugreek seeds - half teaspoon
- Turmeric powder
- Green chillies - slit lengthwise
- Oil - preferable mustard
Not bad . BRG being a bangaal and proud to be it has a way with the simple joys of life .
