Last night…everyone was still asleep in bed.
And my kitchen was exuding out the romantic sweet spicy aroma of the plum sauce. As it’s fragrance lingered on during that sunrise, I stood quiet, my body leaning and my folded arms resting on the kitchen counter.
I was silently reliving a few moments from my childhood. Isn’t that so beautiful? I dipped a fingertip into the still warm plum sauce…and stole a quick lick, straight from the frying pan, to check for seasoning. The velvety sauce tasted just right. There was a perfect balance of the four prime S-flavors that this chutney underlines – sweet, spicy, savory and teensy sour. I had not made anything so incredibly enticing in a long time.
The day then extended into the usual routine morning chores, semi-loud television shows, chaos, a half-asleep wife trying hard to come in terms of the non-dreamlike realities of life…
And there on the breakfast table sitting with elan and pride was my Pishi Maa (anand daa’s aunty) Jar of Aloo-r-bukhara chutney…waiting to be relished by the whole household.
