>Ain’t I lucky? Post 24

>

Yesterday when I got home after work I found my MIL busy in the kitchen. She always is and one more person having a blast other than Aman and me is my cook. He comes, looks around, and finding nothing much to do, cuts some salads and fruits and leaves.

Coming back to yesterday – she was cooking Arbi (Also known as Taro, picture below for ref). This is a very popular north Indian vegetable. Both Aman and I are very fond of it. Aman likes the dry version and I like the gravy version better. Arbi is not easily available in Bangalore and so she brought a kilogram or so of it all the way from Punjab. Really sweet of her!! So first time she made the dry version and I casually commented that I like the gravy one more.

Now yesterday, when I entered the kitchen, I saw her making both types of Arbi. On one burner was the type Aman likes and on the other side was how I like it.

I asked her why she was doing it and she said because that’s how I like it. I was touched beyond words. Really, which MIL will go all the way and do something like this. Didn’t I say I am blessed?

TOUCHWOOD!!

    >Ohh u r blessed 🙂 My MIL used to make 2 versions of chutney bcoz I liked the spicier version and Su used to never hv anything with some extra chillies 🙂 Remembering these good things takes us a long way in life no 🙂

  2. >Yes you are 🙂 I just dropped by and went through many of your recent posts. I agree, it's great to stay away from one's home town, one learns about the place the way no books can teach!
