In the future I might or might not get a couple of Jamais. .
Irrespective of race, cast, creed or gender those Jamais might or might not like Salmon Posto on Jamai Shoshthi. Heck, I will probably not even invite them on #JamaiShoshthi.
.
The koshchen is do I care? NO. Do I care why only a jamai was celebrated in those days? NO.

There are far more things to worry about than if a jamai is fed on Jamai shoshthi why isn't there a Bou Shoshthi.
.
The thing is it is for none of them. It is a celebration of fertility which in those days largely meant a bounty of kids. These days it is just one more partayhhh time (or not), if you please.
.
Now forget all legal relations and make yourself some sinful salmon posto instead. See, I even made a video for you. [Recipe]

My friend @nan_brightstar makes an amazing Ilish Polao, a pulao with Hilsa. It is kind of her signature dish and yesterday she brought over some for me.
.
It is so delicious with the Bengali mishti pulao mingling with Ilish and each complementing the other, that I couldn't stop until several servings. .
I don't think I will ever get around making this dish and so sharing a quick photo of my plate.

I am sure if Messi had this for lunch, he would have got the penalty!!! Or maybe he should have waited until dinner, 'coz all that posto would make you😴.

Eid Mubarak and happy feasting to all who fasted with both their soul and body.🌜
.
I did neither, gave up nothing, and so don't think I deserve a feast of Biriyani or korma either 😪 .
.

But I have this delicious #oatsupma for lunch. This feeds my soul and body. And tomorrow when you are done with your lavish feasts you can have it too.

The Thursday before Kate Spade and a week before Bourdain, I was coming back from some crazy late night grocery or child pickup and my car radio was on #NPR, as usual. The "#OnBeing" project was on air. And then Maria Shriver started saying this, and I sat glued, on my driveway, waiting for the program to finish.
.
Maria Shriver : And I think, very often the images that women get of these other women who seem to — like they’re running for vice president and all their kids are perfect and everything’s great, or they’re running for this, and their husband adores them; they’re having sex all the time; they don’t struggle with their weight; their children are all 4.0s. And that’s just not true. It’s just not true. And so I think the illusion of balance, having it all — I think that’s all a sales job.
.
Krista Tippett: I just want to just repeat this, this thing you’re saying that’s so important but we don’t say this out loud — that we are so skilled and trained, all of us, to be presentational. And now there are all these platforms for presentation, and yet it’s so true, as a woman, that there are women who look like they have it all, but if you get in close enough to any life, you see this. But it is debilitating, this presentational skill that we have.
.
And it is so true, this presentation skill that you see all around, of people having everything in control, this idea of an easy life where we-have-it-all can be debilitating.
.
The same holds for food too. Everywhere you see, food is presented like an art, everyone is striving to make their food look better than others. I get comments on how the color palette of the food I serve can be made prettier. To tell the truth, many a times I deliberately don't bother to pretty up my food. Because that is not my everyday life.

On many a weekdays my Dal doesn't have a sprig of coriander and that is okay. I want you to know that I have a messy life, where I strive to put wholesome meals on the table, even though that food doesn't look pretty. There are days, when the food isn't even that wholesome. I do my best and you do your best. And believe me that is fine.
My life and food on most days is blehh, like this Tetor Dal!!

After many many days I bought fish only for myself. Since my kids are more fond of boneless filets of fish and the husband-man is not a fan of our Bengali style fish either, I always get fish which will please the familia. I mean, I don't want to make separate dishes for everyone, do I? I am not Mother India!
.
.
Yesterday however I went to the store and got fish solely for myself. It was #Shad. Ahh, if needed I will become Mother India for my own good. So I sacrificed my Saturday evening to frying all that fish. Lavender scented yankee candles, Jasmine Hem Agarbatti and open windows helped rest of the family to breathe while I inhaled the scent of frying fish.
.
Sunday morning I made a Kaalia and had a very satisfying lunch, if I say so. The same gravy base was used to make a bassa fish curry with filet of #swai or #bassa for the rest.
.
The #shadfish was good but did not come close to Hilsa. Years back it tasted more like Hilsa but today it just tasted like itself. Shad-ie. Not Shady!

It has been a surprisingly hot day today. We hadn't expected it to get so warm.
.
Since Saturday mornings are filled with kid related activities, and LilSis gets pretty tired after 3hrs of gymnastics, Saturday lunch is usually at home. I was planning for a stir fry noodles but the heat stirred a sleeping desire in my heart.
.
I wanted an Omelette er jhol -- a thin curry in which omelettes are dunked until they become soft and juicy, and Aam Dal -- dal with raw mangoes perfect to stave off summer heat.
.
To see more check my #instastory. Recipe of omelette er jhol in profile.
