More soul food for the monsoon

Monsoons are supposed to end with the Ganapati puja. You still expect a few showers till October, but not a 150 mm of rain in a day. And if that comes down right when the tide is high, Mumbai is flooded. Soul food takes particularly simple forms on such days, scrounged from the staples which you always had a supply of. An aromatic khichri perhaps, but not today. What hits the spot is an egg curry, redolent of green elaichi (cardamom) and garam masala, with a fresh pav from The Family’s favourite bakery, the dough sour, as it is meant to be. No egg curry is quite right without the potatoes. And this one was perfect.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
