tender and sweet

February 8, 2010

Today we went on a trip to Curtorim to visit a friend. On the way there we had freshly squeezed sugar-cane juice with ginger and lime – unbelievably refreshing in the hot sun. The property we visited, on the edge of the Zuari river, had coconut, breadfruit, drum-stick, cashew and mango trees. After harvesting some coconuts (in search for tender ones) we tried our hand at husking and cutting them. The couple of tender ones we found were wonderfully sweet.

After many fun conversations, taking a bagful of unhusked coconuts as a parting gift, we left to go back home. We made a little side trip for lunch – bhel puri, pani puri, sev batata puri, ragda patties and onion bhajias. We also stopped for some tender coconuts and tadgola for dessert. Very stuffed right now, but heading for a post-wedding dinner in an hour or so.
