Aroma of erotic adventures of Yaroslava TANKOV, special correspondent. “KP” about his favorite cuisine “Never cut the back of the fish that you cook and eat, otherwise it will not be reborn in a new life, and perhaps this is your unborn daughter!” – the old Indian woman taught me, carefully wrapping the marble carcass of mackerel in grape leaves golden from turmeric.
The bright, sunny aroma that filled the kitchen, the flickering of the hostess’s chocolate hands – everything hypnotized. It was in an ordinary Moscow apartment, but the ocean and palm trees rustled outside the window … At the same time, I drank only viscous tea in milk with cardamom! There is no alcohol in Indian cuisine, but the aroma makes your head spin much more than wine. To believe or not in the ancient Buddhist legend about the rebirth of fish is up to you. But.
knowing how to cook and eat according to Indian traditions, you become a little god. A Buddhist deity who owns the souls of not only those you eat, but also those you feed. With the help of food, Indian women are able to evoke passion and lull, bewitch and cure… Indian cuisine is not just satiety and pleasure, it is the strongest magic based on a magical combination of hundreds of spices… Vanilla bewitches. Fishermen say even fish bite on vanilla bait. Its aroma relieves irritation and soothes, bringing a feeling of spiritual comfort.
Ginger kindles passion and does not allow you to get fat. Even the ancient Greeks struggled with the consequences of too plentiful feasts, eating this spice wrapped in a flat cake. To keep love in the heart of her husband, Indian women mix passionate ginger with saffron in their dishes – a spice that gives happiness. Egyptian healers wrote about the magical properties of saffron as early as 1500 BC.
It was presented as the most expensive gift to kings. Saffron was honored to have the color of the Buddha’s garments dyed. Due to its truly magical properties, this spice was valued on a par with gold around the world. For example, in Germany, an attempt to fake it was punishable by burning at the stake or being buried alive! By the way, the “lily” in Bourbon heraldry is actually a saffron flower.
And if you think that only exotic spices have special properties, you are mistaken. The same pepper and bay leaf that are familiar to us are also in the lead in the list of “witchcraft potions”. It’s just that we, unlike the Indians, do not know how to use them. There are hundreds of spices in Indian cuisine, thousands of flavors created from them! Not a kitchen, but a dream of Perfumer Susskind! But here there are no simple, homely.
calmly satisfying smells a la borscht-meatballs-TV-ruddy wife. This is the kitchen of adventure! Here you heat up the oil to a barely noticeable haze and, as soon as it appears, you throw a bunch of spices cunningly selected by Indian chefs. At the same second, the space around explodes with hot sunny aromas – it smells like happiness, passion, flight! You’re cooking not just chicken.
but the ginger-spicy, peppery-hot passion of a secret romance. Not shrimp, but saffron-light, but tearfully hot first kiss. There is a war of tastes in the mouth between sweet and bitter, salty and tart, you are thrown into the heat, then into the cold … Cooking in India is not just a necessary set of rules and movements to eat deliciously later, but an independent, self-valuable Action! Aromas are introduced into a trance.
There are dishes whose recipes take several pages, and cooking takes several hours! And then you start eating – for Indians this action is almost erotic. You only need to eat with your right hand, trying not to stain your fingers more than two phalanxes, but enjoying the very touches of food, listening to the sensations: burn your fingers in friable rice pearls, cool them in the sweet viscosity of cottage cheese.
squeeze warm pieces of softly supple cakes and dip them in a viscous sauce, catching on the fly and licking amber drops from your hand … Recipes of Indian cuisine, in fact, the first volume of the Kama Sutra. Remember “nine and a half weeks”, where a couple of passionate lovers pour honey and milk on each other and mix food with sex? So, if in our opinion – in Indian style – the main characters are like that, they “have a bite”.
In your hands is a book that will teach you to Dine – just like that, with a capital letter, for real in every sense. Dare! BTW: Meat, fish or vegetarianism? Many are mistaken, believing that in connection with the ideas of Buddhism, the basis of Indian dishes is vegetarian dishes. In fact, the type of cuisine largely depends on the region of India in which the recipe was born. Meat dishes are more common in the north.
