It’s a rare conjunction of events that we are both at home, sick and it’s a weekday. The taste buds are on strike and we can’t taste anything subtle. I was making something else in the kitchen and my husband said he wants to eat something spicy. Immediately I thought of making motor daaler bora (split pea lentil fritters). I had already soaked some daal the previous night. Chopped green chili, onion and cilantro went into the batter and they were deep fried. It was momentary bliss to have a hot cup of coffee and the boras on a rainy afternoon. It’s been ages we have done that. Hope you are having a fun day as well.
