La Vita E Bella

Today is a beautiful day. In fact today is the best day in a long time because today I have found her. I'd been looking for her for almost a year, asking friends and acquaintances (Do you know anyone? Would you recommend someone?) and come up only with disappointment but now my search has borne fruit. Or biryani, to be more precise. Afshan Aunty has agreed to cook for me. She lives about an hour away with her son and daughter-in-law and she makes meals for starving bachelors. I spoke with her this morning and we went over the menu. They're from Hyderabad and soon my life will be filled with Hyderabadi biryani, mirchon ka saalan and bhagaaray baingan. Also seekh kababs and pulao with the occasional bhaji (or bhujia) thrown in for delight.

My world feels complete again.

funny thing is, your stalkerishness reminds me of the advice on received on flickr re. how to get my hands on nargisi koftay, something i've never eaten before.

i sense a trend here. is aunty-stalking the only way people can get real deal food?!
