My earliest memory,
takes me back to,
when I was three,
My crazy pink fetish,
driving my mom,
up a tree!
Shopping with me,
was her worst nightmare!,
I would cling on to a pink frock,
like a leach to your hair!
That still wouldn’t satisfy me,
I would insist on trying it on,
pirouette around and ask,
Why isn’t it twirling,
pirouette: fast turn of the body on the toes or the front part of the foot,
performed especially by a ballet dancer
Weekly writing challenge: A pinch of You
This week, we want a window into the complexity that is you. We want your best recipes.
We don’t mean we want your best recipe for fried chicken, we want the recipe for all the bits and pieces and quirks and foibles and loves that make you you.
Here’s a juicy titbit….a starter you can munch on while you go through my delicious kandi curry recipe!
Do you know my surname- kandicuppa comprises of 2 words-
Kandi meaning yellow dal/lentils and
Cuppa (pronounced cooppa!) meaning heap. (in Telugu, which is an Indian language)
so my ancestors are from a place where there was an abundance of dal/lentils!
Isn’t that interesting?!
Now here’s the recipe! 🙂 enjoy!!
A little bit of innocence in the jar,
A little bit of cheeky fun by the bar,
A dash of fiery temper, into the mix,
a hint of sweet smile, playing on the lips,
A little bit of attitude on the go,
Some first impressions are meant to last for eternity..
while others fade into oblivion…which would you rather prefer?
It’s not that easy an answer… 🙂
It was our first trip…
to my Uncle’s place,
who had shifted here,
with bag and baggage.
I was excited about
seeing their home,
(It is in one of the ‘posh’est of zones,)
We left our house
on a nice Sunday,
