After the dentist trip, came redemption.
Kartik and I had bowlfuls of halwa, stack of pooris and loads of kaale chane today. We kept on gorging down the pooris one after another, and mom made sure they kept popping up one after another...you know how moms are!
We ate in silence, savoring every grain of halwa, licking every drop of chane that inadvertently missed our mouth and fell on our lower lip, and smiling at each other in between because we knew how good it was. Well, we secretly wished navratri came every other weekend :)
Dear ma...thank you for being such a super cook and for making me the happiest person on earth post the dental warfare. Yumm!
