Winter in Kolkata II : Let’s Eat Out

Winter in Kolkata I : Homemade Food and Stories
Last December, AB and I were on a ten-day whirlwind trip to Kolkata. We were primarily there for some visa-related work but since we were home after three years, family, friends, and relatives didn’t stop short of smothering us with an abundance of homemade delicious meals – for breakfast, lunch, tea-time snacks, dinner, and the time that is between! With my camera in tow, I clicked as much as I could, secretly trying to capture the love with which all these were made.

He cannot imagine letting go off spring and summer without going for at least one camping trip. California, fortunately, has tons of really good places for this, depending on what sort of camper you are. I play no role in planning these trips, but, of course, the food. We cannot simply grill some hamburgers or hot dogs, put them in buns and eat them with chips and coke for dinner (although they are perfectly viable options), camping food should be something we would like to look forward to, right? So this post is dedicated to the Tandoori Chicken I made for our last weekend’s camping trip. Tried and tested before, we absolutely love this tandoori preparation as it involves a charcoal grill.
