A Raj-era feast 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
On a warm autumn afternoon, as I walked down Esplanade, Kolkata, I noticed a line of customers outside a heritage food joint displaying a menu that read: "Mutton stew with bread". In my curiosity to know more, I asked an office-goer who was waiting in line about what the dish was exactly. Breaking into a smile, he said, "With the chill setting in, a steaming bowl of mutton stew cooked with vegetables is a satisfying lunch choice." Use of spices My mind instantly travelled back to the time when a bowl of some thick, flavourful and mildly-spiced mutton stew was savoured with bread by British officers stationed in India.
