I keep telling anyone who listens that at heart all I really want to do is open a Dosai/Pongal/Vadai stand somewhere near St Paul’s or Liverpool Street Station. Dosai is so flexible that you can offer filling options and what not. And for the city-struck finance types, comfort food is required. Given the number of desis, Pongal could easily be sold as comfort food no? (If any venture capitalist type people are reading this – I am very serious. I have business plan and all. I will make money. I assure you.)
It’s raining outside. And personally I’d like a Molaga Bajji or two to go with the current mood. I like my workplace a lot – very outgoing people with a slightly twisted sense of humour, but the flipside is that at any given point in time a lot of them are out in the field. So in this moment, between closing one file and opening another, I’d really like to be able to bite into a piping hot molaga bajji. And drown it with some masala tea or filter coffee.
I would have said I will sell Molaga Bajji at my stand, but given my current state of mind, I will probably eat them all up and not sell any of them. But food is definitely on my mind today. I even gave out the recipe for Carrot Halwa to a colleague. Let’s see what comes of it. On that note, I give you one of my all time favourite kitchen songs – Samaithu Kattuvom from Unnal Mudiyum Thambi.
