Tonight, a charcoal roasted chicken (not really tandoori style) with a rub of bengali spices, bengali butter rice, toor dal, and chapati, plus a jar of red chilli pickle. Have a pandora station on with the requisite music, now Kushal Das. Better get cracking.
Anyway, meant to say...bought a bottle of Rooh Afza sharbat:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooh_Afza
Basically, a popular indian summer drink concentrate. Looks like a koolaid concentrate or something...
But just tried some, and man...do Indians singe their nasal passages or what? I love their heavy use of spices in cooking, but I got some incense as an extra little gift with a sitar-related order recently, and WOW that stuff has strength, and this rooh afza tastes like incense/perfume. Man alive!!!! Not sure I can get through this bottle. Maybe I'll have acquired the taste by then.
