ok... you have to describe what you are eating here... looks delicious!!! And for someone who is clearly ignorant about Assamese food and culture - what's a Pitha?
Well, we asked for fried rice. It came embellished with cherries and raisins apart from the usual carrots, beans and peas. And presented beautifully on banana leaves, with thin strips of cabbage over it. Wikipedia has an entry about pitha, but if you want something more personal, here's my blog post. http://blog.affinityexpress.com/2011/01/20/more-memories-of-food-the-pitha-from-assam-india/
That was an extremely yummmmmm write-up on the pitha on your corporate space:) We'd love a new segment on Unmana's Words, on the different facets of Assamese life and culture...
Priya Mani: Thank you! Glad you liked that piece but I don't think I'm qualified to talk about Assamese culture. I can only talk about my experiences, which was what I did in the "pitha post".
Drooling....mouth watering and now hungry :( and thanks for the write up about Pitha..it definitely is enlightening :)
R's Mom: That rice did taste quite good. I was a bit wary when I saw the cherries, but it worked quite well.
