spicy tales...

there have been some itsy bitsy stuff which i've been wanting to post for sometime now... and kept postponing indefinitely for no good reason other than, well, a general state of inertia...


well, sometime back i saw this in one of the grocery stores... not an indian store, but a regular american one.... so was (understandably !) quite excited on seeing this in the spices aisle...









'madras curry powder' - just the name got me all excited, and obviously i had to take a closer look at the box...  despite all the years of living in madras, i have hardly seen a kitchen in madras use a standard 'readymade' powder called madras curry powder... this one though seems to be a mixture of most spices used in indian cooking, like cumin, coriander, fenugreek, fennel, pepper, chillies, etc etc...


 obviously i didnt buy the box, since, like every other indian kitchen, i have and use almost all the individual ingredients listed there in different combinations and amounts in different dishes.... but it still felt strangely nice seeing that in a place where you least expect it...

and i also realised i am no good at taking pictures with a mobile camera :) i fumbled with it so much and my hands were all still cold from the air-curtain in the veggies section, and i ended up with very shaky pics !
