Bye Bye Bob Woolmer

I don't know Bob Woolmer. Yellow teeth n silver hair, red skin from the Pakistani Sun... But when I got to work, more people seemed to be concerned about the fact that he'd died, than the match that India had played with Bangladesh. That was a topic, I believe anyways, that a lot of us have buried. No one wants to talk of bad things.

I wonder how the Pakistani team feel... Having exited the cup, and the loosing their coach. Was he someone they respected? I mean, it's one thing to say he was, to the media.. and another thing to actually think it, and feel it. How did he feel, with the early exit of his team?

Were Greg Chapell to die, what would we in India say? He's not exactly loved here, most Indians view the man with much animosity.. I don't know why. Maybe cause he says it like it is. Maybe its cz he's fond of experimenting, often to the detriment of the team. Sometimes to reveal hidden talent. Like Shantakumaran Sreesnath I believe.

So India will go in today to regain fallen pride, display (hopefully) learnt lessons, and with a heart set to not only win, but to win by a big ass margin. What happens if they loose to Bermuda.. I don't know. God help them if they do.

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Cob Loaf!

I first had a taste of this when I was watching Cricket at the Adelaide Oval. One of our office colleagues had brought it over, and given it was summer, we'd had something of a picnic at the stadium.

It definitely is not for the calorie conscious, but would classify as comfort food for sure! I remember not watching cricket, but enjoying this more-ish dish, to such an extent that I got the recipe off her, and attempted making it and have made it at least 4 times the last year. The only problem is, I haven't found a cob loaf in Bangalore.

I tried using the neighborhood bun, too soft, too small.
I tried using sour dough, from breadworks, too hard.
So today I tried using a multi grain loaf, that also strays from the traditional round shaped cob loaf..

Here's a recipe close enough to the one that my friend gave me..

Changes made


1. I used frozen American Sweet Corn instead of canned corn kernels.
2. I couldn't find the usual Milk Maid fresh cream (that has the taste of sour cream- …

Kaffir Lime Leaves- In Bangalore

Want to make Tom Yam, Chicken Rendang, Mojito's with a lemony twist.. can't find Kaffir Lime Leaves?

Good news! Found them in Russel Market, fresh and beautiful. Look for the shop that sells lemon grass, along the vegetable section. Better yet, the fella also has galangal, asparagus, leeks, bok choy, celery.. amongst a host of other things.
