It is true.
And this is how it all started... on a tuesday morning. Right here at this desk. Awaiting a lab supply :) I have to say I never foresaw coming along so far. And I am glad I did.
This calls for a ton of thanks to a few friends who have been with me through out this incredible journey. And special thanks to R. For he has been through the good and bad. Encouragement and criticisms helping me equally :) And also my sister. She has been the biggest fan of my cooking!
And the only way to honor today is with a post of food-- I love and crave-- but neither can I make it nor do I want to learn how to do it. Its called 'Luchi'. Fried dough..but way way better. There is this thin crust on top and if you break it the aroma of fried dough wafts in. You have it with potato curry or caramelized-sweetened-milk-rice-custard (payesh). It is out of the world. And in my home this was a brunch or a dinner delicacy. As I write it I am craving for these and that always reminds me of my mom-grandmother combination in the kitchen.
This is one food-- in addition to samosa-- I cannot make. And I actively strive not to learn how to make it.You know its like that famous mastercard ad.. 'There are some things you should not attempt to make'. The drill takes the magic away. And what's food-- or for that matter anything-- without some magic :)
So when an old freind--Shreya--visited a couple of months ago, she made me this wonderful big brunch of luchi-and rice custard. I cannot thank her enough. And R has been so good-- he has treated me to this savory brunch--working in the kitchen all by himself a couple of times :)
So here it is..the feast in pictures...for I don't know the recipe. A sort of guest post from R, my fren Shreya, my mom and gradmom from across the oceans :)
That's the fried dough! notice the crust :)
That's what I call the bounty :) You can always mark your anniversaries by these beauties.
Cheers to an year and hopefully more ahead :)
