I think I have stopped communication with my stomach though it sends so many correspondences all the time. The dealing have been direct with my tongue for the past 2 days 🙂 The morning was lazy in Bangalore but the misty smell of the earth combined with a soft haze from the Sun God and the newness of the trees added to the glory, rendering the atmosphere seem perfect for a hot crispy dosa breakfast.
A very typical dosa made with all different daals in the right quantity, overpowered by ginger and coconut is called addhai. The veritable taste buds become alive just to the whiff of this dosa 🙂 I demanded Aunty to grind chutney in the stone mixer for me, only me 🙂 The request was adhered to immediately and she threw in some grated coconut, coriander leaves, chillies and daal. The production started in no-time and Aunty quickly took over her directorial debut leading and guiding the actors, smashing, hitting them to produce a succulent taste.
It looked very easy while she was quickly yet firmly rolling the stone over them with her left hand, while the right being used to mix them. Taking the inspiration, I quickly conquered the method with my eyes and started implementing it. I had to believe in what-you-see-is-not-is constitution. It was an arduous task involving my forearm and shoulder muscles to emotional wrath. Though I didn’t allow them to see my plight, I withdrew. I licked my fingers till the bottom and the taste was resplendent with the earthly aroma. Aunty took over the governance adjusting her knee to take position, chatted with me and stoned out the best Chatknee of my life.
PS:- Will be doing the Yes+ advance course from tomorrow, so will meet all you blog friends on Tuesday. When we get back, the blog would have been hit more than 10k times in the blogosphere.
If you did not make it to this advance course, there’s another one with Guruji on 3rd June. Make it happen for you.
The pasta I had at Sqisito is the first one in their menu list under pasta items, as many of you asked. If you Pune’ites visit them, do let me know the name of it.
