Dusting my attic one day
I found a book of mysterious recipes
Was it my grandmas' or her grandma
Sure did look antique and very vague.
The recipes were unique I found
Spicy and sweet and many abound.
On opening the first page,
The barrage of aroma stuck me hard
It contained recipe for a sweet tooth
Mouth-water Balushahi unfit to disregard.
Another page had some illustrations
Of a bowl and few ingredients
A rolling pin, a sack of wheat and some spice
You guessed it, was Paratha alright!
A malai kofta here, a Kaala Daal there
A rice preparation followed by an Indian bread there
Veggies as a side dish made my mouth water
Even when they were on paper
There were some more pages
Stained with flavours
Dragging you into an old world
Of kitchens enormous and wondrous
And now I wish I was there
In the kitchen with the women of those days
Not sweating and cooking like they were
But being treated to their wondorus wares
