Today’s Tiffin

Malaidar andai (boiled eggs in a cream sauce) and rasedar khumbi aloo (stewed mushrooms and spuds with garlic).  Usually I try to go for a balance of colours and textures for my two dishes but today was all-out hot red chilli and garlic (the mushroom dish is made with a whole bulb).  The hearty stewed potatoes and mushrooms and the blazing hot chilli attack of the egg sauce were the perfect antidote to the very cold weather today.  All I needed was some lime pickle, a poori or two and a nice salted lassi to make things perfect.  And maybe a nautch and some Kashmiri opium.  Anyway, with the amount of garlic I consumed for tiffin I felt a little sorry for those of my colleagues who were obliged to speak to me in the afternoon, but the feeling passed.
