Him & Her

I gave him a turtle
Slow and steady

He gave me a baby
Loud and noisy

I gave him language
Simple and easy

He gave me meaning
Deep and strong

We travel miles
Not moving at all

We live through days
Measured in seconds

My heart stops
His love remains

Our journey continues
Through a jungle of pain

Raindrops of tears
Clouds of sleepless nights

And time that envelopes
A sad letter with an ending

A letter head reads, "Heartbroken"
Beware.

Beautiful.

Its called completing each other. Once in a way, life blesses us by giving us a person that completes us.
And once in a way, it takes the person away... But love remains...

Brilliant. I too once had a turtle called Henry that I gave away... how much we traverse with the ones we love, without leaving our rooms ... or bodies...

Thank you all. I think this goes out to a man that's been there for me, through a lot of the things that life throws out.

Sowmya, you're right. they may be gone, but not much is forgotten. Sometimes a curse, but sometimes, it's just special.

mehak, thanks darl.

Anon: Welcome back! Unemployed, oh why?

Pram: Yes, how much love transcends everything. But it still amazes me how sometimes, something so wonderful is just not good enough.

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.
