It's high time! 16.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While travelling across India is quite a high by itself, in all our forays, we love trying out the local tipple whenever its been offered to us. Be it feni or urak in Goa, bhang during Holi, apong in Arunachal Pradesh during the Sollung Festival, kyad on a trek to a living root bridge in Meghalaya, chhang to combat the Ladakhi winter, raksi in Sikkim and Nepal, taadi and handia with tribals in Jharkhand or saraph (salfi) and mahua in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha; we have happily imbibed Indian spirits in all its glorious forms wherever we have travelled… The history of intoxication in India is as old as its gods. Like the Greek ambrosia or nectar, Hindu texts mention amrit or soma, the divine elixir that gave Vedic gods immortality. Agni consumed it in copious quantities and Indra drank rivers of soma for strength to overcome Vrittra, the fearsome three-headed dragon. Soma, a Vedic Sanskrit word, literally "to distill, extract or sprinkle", is derived from the juice of the ...

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. This immunity-boosting mutton stew had all the traditional ingredients that were used by the chefs in the kitchens of British sahibs - mutton cubes, potatoes, carrots, cauliflower florets and beans, onion with a hit of green chillies and whole spices like cardamoms, cinnamon, peppercorns and bay leaf. Even today, traditional European cooking styles like slow-cooking and braising are ...

Romance of train travel 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
It was ages since I had travelled by train. As my train chugged out of Kolkata, on its way to Shantiniketan, I dozed off. I opened my eyes when my ears heard the strains of Rabindra Sangeet, to see a blind beggar singing in the aisle. I also saw a stream of vendors selling a variety of items. Then, I fell into a reverie. My earliest memory of a train journey was between Bengaluru and Mysuru during our Dasara holidays. As children, we would be excited to see the "rail chombu," a brass water container with a screwable lid, cleaned and polished, and trunks and hold-alls dusted and packed. Mom would start cooking a variety of snacks for the journey and to be given to our hosts in Mysuru. The very thought of relishing them during the journey would make our mouths water. Sitting in the train, we would eagerly wait for sellers of cotton candy, churumuri, unshelled peanuts and masala cucumber, hoping against hope that our parents would buy them. Toy sellers at Channapatna would fascinate us and if lucky, we ...
