#365DaysOfWriting – Day 176
Visited my uncle’s house after a while
It’s been a long time actually. And this was the only time I would meet him before he embarked on one of his long tours again. He’s a cricket statistician – Mohandas Menon, yes you may have heard his name a lot – and travels frequently to cover cricket tours.
I also had the gulab jamun my aunt made after a long time.
Call me weird, but I hate gulab jamun when it’s soaked in sugary syrup. My aunt makes this almost-dry (yet not completely) gulab jamun that just absolutely melts in the mouth. And boy, it tasted like heaven! She also made a lot of other yummy stuff like jeera rice, kadhi pakoda, lovely paneer and cauliflower crisp-fried, and chapatis with a paneer-methi curry. Yeah, pretty delicious menu.
I also met my cousin, who’s barely available for family meets these days with the amount of work he has (poor guy).
