ha ha ha. he probably had it with bread.

Actually, I had it with dal and rice. Along with fried bombil. And my favorite (lawnmower) beer.

The chimta? I think those are called tongs in English.

no chimta is something else. It's actually a tongue with flat surface used to flip chapatis or papad on the stove.

In the pic is sandasi. Or many people use its short form 'sansin' with n in the end for a bit nasal tone in the end.

It's called chimta in these parts, but the same word also describes the flat tongs used to flip chapatis. In Delhi, they used to call this pakkad.

alur dom is made in both ways -- dry and gravied. with radha ballabis, though, i've mostly been served the dry version of alur dom.

rekz, cocolosia yam is what we call arbi in hindi isn't it?



btw. i have a great recipe for cooking it -- if you like i can share photos and recipe. our recipe is (as narrated by my wife):

- boil arbi (don't over boil) . peel. cool it.
- flatten arbi with hand
- heat in pan tadka of ghee, ajwain & hing -- then add to the tadka haldi (turmeric powder), dhaniya (coriander), red chilli powder -- bhunno (everything should be half bhunnoed though)
- add arbi to the pan -- bhunno
- give dum (cover with vessel)
- keep mixing during dum
- add garam masala when done
- garnish with green coriander leaves
- eat with roti/paratha/poori and squeeze lime on the arbi dish while eating.

note: you have given "dum" to the dish. if you want to give it "phukt" too, put two embers of charcoal on the vessel covering the arbi during dum -- totally unnecessary but now you can call it dumphukt arbi.

no no. i was concerned with the spelling (sandasi - eww). i don't know what northindians must call it.

we call it chimta in MH. that's the word for both pakkad (heave lifting) and tong (for papad and phulkas).

yeah, i also read it as that and i thought it was meant to denote a poorer cousin of sanyasi. the one who cannot afford to go to the himalayas but gets all the solitude.

hmm... there's another word in Marathi for this chimta which is saandShee. i thought even hindi word starts with "saan" and not "san". a bad bad word for the kitchen-talk.

Thanks. He posted a mini tutorial on how to post images, which wasn't much, but did help.

The important thing he left out was that you didn't need another email address to register at servimg. He did say we could use the same one we did for SUCH, but I didn't know what that was as I had used the 10 min email at that time. But I just realized that it was still saved under profile info. Yeah...brain waves and such. I'm sorta dense with these sort of things.

That pressure cooker needs to be scrubbed like 10-15 times with lime and what not. My mom would go nuts if she sees this. Every time she visits, mine would look like this and they would look brand new before she leaves.
