With Intern’s parents in town this week and last, we basically gave up all cooking rights and responsibilities, and his mother took over.  A pleasure and a pain, but we enjoyed all the dishes she prepared.  Now that the kitchen is ours again, we’re craving raw vegetables. Some of our favorites last week included: whole wheat roti, made from scratch, every. single. day. Chai, at least twice a day (but none for me, just coffee). For breakfast, poha, a flattened rice dish, with curry leaves and fried peanuts,! We broke Ammi’s rule, and put a poached egg on top. It is not traditional, but it is delicious. The last photo, just a regular old weeknight dinner of moong daal, roti, potatoes with tomato and onion, okra and two kinds of achar. If achar (Indian pickle) is on the table, I am eating it all.

Delicious Indian street food we shared at Vik’s in Berkeley. At this point in our full week of all Indian, all the time eating, we ordered too many dishes, and ate them all. I don’t even know what we ordered.
