Hoozay, It's near lunch time. I'm leching (and salivating) at that picture of butter chicken and tandoori roti you posted a few days back. Yes, today shall be a butter chicken day.

In the event, my lunch company wanted to try the buffet, so instead of the meal I had fantasized about, I ended up eating:
- chicken kebabs
- fish tikka
- kolhapuri chicken
- mutton kofta
- nan
- egg biryani
- bhindi fry

There was a very nice looking dessert counter as well. I ignored the cut fruits and instead had:
- Green paan cream pastry (sweet paan flavored cream - quite different and intriguing)
- cham cham
- lemon tart
- vanilla ice cream

I was a bit distracted so I missed out the chaat counter. Well, next time.

no, this was a proper western pastry like the one below. but instead of fruits on top, imagine a garnish of mukhwaas and a mild aftertaste of sweet paan. actually, the correct word is mousse. it's a mousse cake, not a pastry.

that is an awesome pic.! rabri is usually white in colour but this one is a shade of brown, fawn, that makes it look delectable. rabri is very tasty but i taste it only once a year. a few weeks ago, when my wife had ordered rabri, i tasted a spoonful and said no after that -- it was sinful. (atal bihar bajpayee was similarly fond of malpuas -- but i am not -- perhaps MD is. Smile) also the two sppons in the heart-shaped cup makes the presentation delectable -- one spoon for the lover and the other for the beloved. i google searched your image and you can see i was not thinking along the wrong lines.

Lol hk. Yes the Serving bowl was heart shaped. But that's where the romance ends. Here is the story behind the spoons. I had gone with my son to see a movie in Edison. We had gone early so to pass time went to mithaas.

Anyway. I got rabdi and put it on the table. Son immediately dug a spoon in it on the edge of the bowl. I was like, no wait let me take a pic first. But when I took the spoon out, it had a dent. So I said ok let's put the spoon back. So I put the spoon back. He thought we are supposed to put all the spoons in. So he dug in another one too. This time right in the center. Having no other choice I clicked it anyway.

Am not sure what google image searches you talking about.

Edit: just saw ur post with images this time. Pics load later on iPhone.

wow. just stumbled on this new factoid. no wonder kolkata's rabri is so delicious:

Calcutta Rabri

The quintessential Rabri from Calcutta has probably been handed down from the Rabri that is originally from Varanasi. This very rich dessert is made by heating sweetened milk in a large open vessel (kadhai). As the layer of cream begins to form on the surface of the milk, it is taken off and kept aside. The process continues until the milk is exhausted. The Rabri thus formed is extremely creamy and very heavy on the stomach, but loved by the average Bengali. Rabri was banned in Calcutta for sometime during the years of milk scarcity because of the fact that it uses up a large quantity of milk.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabri

btw, west bengal is still a net importer of milk (imported from the south). this despite the fact that west bengal's milk production has dramatically increased over the last several decades. i think the deficit has narrowed.

I'm trying to remember the name of this other very rich sweet peculiar to Kolkata. It was basically the cream skimmed off the milk, collected and then sun-dried (I think), deep-fried and soaked in syrup. Triply sinful, but thrice as delightful.

It's never white in color. Rabri is cooked milk. If you cook anything, it changes color. Same shyt for rabri. It goes from white to a hint of brown to light brown to dark brown and if keep cooking the fuck out of it, it'll end up charcoal black. You don't want to eat it if the color is charcoal black though, because at this point, it's not edible.

I made a gallon of rabri on Monday. The color is a darker shade of brown than what you see in the picture Natalia posted.

strawberry shortcake, shami kebabs and BIG BIG pooris, spinach feta pumpkin pie, quiche...hey bhagwan! i am getting an inferiority complex. double flank attack from aunties bw and nats! must ask ganpath ram to make shami kebab mince and take some nice snaps of shami kebabs sizzling in a skillet. the ground meat should last a good many days -- can be eaten as burgers later too.

What I really craved for was a simple roast duck rice, washed down with a Tsingtao at a neighborhood food stall. Instead, I sat down in plush five star comfort and had:
- a flavorful minetrone soup
- a very intriguingly presented herb-encrusted sole fillet (they'd rolled up the fillet and pan-fried the roll)
- a simply delicious tiramisu which would've been deliciouser if only the chef had soaked the ladies fingers in some spiced rum and coffee instead of just the latter
- a scandalously priced but delightfully smooth $100 pinot noir

And lastly, a glass of Courvoisier VSOP.

Nice meal, nice buzz but my craving for roast duck remains unconsummated.

Such luck continues to escape me. Lunch AND dinner were Italian. Lunch was a crispy-skinned pan-fried pomfret with a delicious eggplant caponata. Dinner was an equally flavorful pan-fried sea bass followed by panacotta and this was a first: cognac-marinated grapes. All lip-smackingly delicious but still...no. roast. duck. So near and yet so far...

The only consolation was that I witnessed a Christ-like miracle this evening. No, water didnt turn to wine but the wine (a mellow salice salentino) certainly flowed like water and I'm now filled by the Spirit and ready to talk in the tongues. Hallelujah.

we had guests over, so lunch was special. litti chokha with arbi (colocasia) sabzi.

litti: a baati stuffed with sattu (bengal gram), mango pickle masala and onions, roasted and served dabbed with ghee. chokha (rear image): potatoes and eggplants mashed in mustard oil.



with one foodie out of the house, we seem to have lost some of the initiative to cook new things.

Here in my domain no living beings are to be slaughtered or offered in sacrifice. Nor should festivals be held, for Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi [Ashoka], sees much to object to in these festivals, although there are some festivals that Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, does approve of. Formerly, in the kitchen of the Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, hundreds of thousands of animals were killed every day to make curry. But now with the writing of the Dharma edict only three creatures, two peacocks and a deer, are killed, and the deer not always. And in time, not even these three creatures will be killed.

today marks pitrapaksh, the beginning of shardh, that will end with mahalaya or the first day of the durga pujas. lunch was onion-garlic-less fare fed to brahmins first:

(the photos have not come out well though the alu sabzi with pooris was very tasty. nevertheless, i am posting them)

dahi vada



alu sabzi with pooris, peas and cauliflower sabzi and mishti doi.



the beloved-of-the-gods, piyadasi, our great ancestor, emperor ashoka, would not have approved of this meal nor the ritual that accompanies it. we will try to make amends by cooking venison on pitrapaksh next year.

K, to celebrate pitrupaksha, this devout Brahmin fed himself with the following at lunch today:
- Pani puri, papdi chaat, mutton seekh kebab, chicken malai kebab, chicken tikka
- Bhuna ghosht and chicken maharaja with pulao and tandoori roti
- Malai kulfi and freshly fried (in ghee) jalebis
All washed down with a bottle of beer. As a consequence, my forefathers and I were ati prasanna.

Hoozay, I feel cheated. Here I was, diligently performing my sacred duty towards my forefathers and it turns out the only person I was pleasing was your dad (and me of course). Oh well, I guess I just have to do it all over again when it's actually pitrupaksha.

Anyway, wife got a new grill for the backyard, so looks like it will be outdoor cooking in this brahmin's household till the weather turns cold.
