I have found the perfect pad. I am almost settled. There is the rush to fill the fridge with vegetables and cupboards with fresh spices. There is a passion for fresh smelling linen. I did find couple of Indian stores for my masala and dal. I will not call a city mine until I can make fresh Avial* and puttu-kadala. I am yet to get my hands on shredded coconut. My malayali-genes and their stubborn predilection to coconut based curries - the saga continues!
There is a missing internet connection and I hope to have that fixed by this week.
In a week or two, I will be back searching for a job here so that I can do guilt-free shopping.
There are cartons yet to be opened and stuff that beckon my attention. But I surrender to the charms of hot cuppa coffee, yummy cookies and as always a good book.
P: S: In Search of Sita : A lovely book I have read and re-read so many times.
P: P: S: These thumb drive internet connections drive me nuts. I am sorry I did not reply to the comment. It was rude.
*Avial: What? You don't now what Avial is? Hang your head down in shame! Now! Do some reading here.
