Chard with garlic and nuts (Source: Amrita Roy) Top News How mixed up can a bowl of mixed veg get Seriously mixed up if you ask me If you were to probe further I’d probably admit that some of the mixed veg served at my table perhaps needed shrinks to sort out their identity issues For in my moments of inspiration (or over-ambition) I’ve shamelessly let plump crispy boris add a wanton bite to shy delicate courgettes and tempered a mirpoix — the French holy trinity of onion-celery-carrots — with methi with great aplomb (but please don’t tell Raymond Blanc) Before you start accusing me of being a Masterchef wannabe and a snob who casually peppers conversations with French allow me to tell you my sob story I’m a shudh desi and a reluctant lonesome expatriate currently living too far away from the motherland for my liking As a pakka Bengali I’m also genetically predisposed to gluttony and laziness Not a happy combination No sir So I only start to plan the meal when the hunger pangs get unbearable or a particular craving strikes That may limit the time or ingredients available to rustle up true versions of family classics but nothing gets the creativity going like a near-empty fridge and a very hungry stomach So you stick to the principles learnt watching granny in her kitchen about the tempering or the spice combination and boldly sally forth down avenues she’d never dare Like a chochchori of celery and kopir danta (the green stalks at the base of a gobi) with aubergine and paanch phoron Or a maacher jhol with trout and cauliflower Marrow a summer produce that is almost a cottage industry here in the UK (it did have a very famous grower in Hercule Poirot) and which looks and tastes like a blander version of an obese lauki can be redeemed by teaming it up with chingri a la the classic Bengali lau chingri One particularly successful experiment which has now become a family favourite is the colourful Swiss chard fried with garlic and red chillies and nuts Inspired by every Bengali kid’s favourite green the laal shaak (which is technically not green but red and tinges the rice it’s had with bright purple; hence its popularity) the Swiss chard never fails to take me back to joyful childhood meals on summer holidays sitting on the wooden stool in the cool darkness of my grandmother’s kitchen with throngs of cousins Though the deep purple stain is missing the jewel tones of the rainbow chards stalks more than makes up for it Ever since Marcel Proust famously bit into a madeleine and sipped on some tea the evocative power of food has been widely celebrated in literature In recent years scientific and anthropological studies have backed up Proust’s claims that involuntary memories can be triggered by a familiar taste Mark Swislocki an associate professor at NYU called it “culinary nostalgia” In the introduction to his book Culinary Nostalgia Regional Food Culture and the Urban Experience in Shanghai he describes it as “the recollection or purposive evocation of another time and place through food” Significantly perhaps the term “nostalgia” first appeared in 1688 Swislocki explains to describe a new medical condition prevalent among the displaced people of 17th century Europe especially soldiers In an article published last year the Time magazine reported that a study by Jordan Troisi an assistant professor of psychology at Sewanee The University of The South US and his colleagues had found that people preferred the taste of comfort food when they experienced feelings of social isolation It was even more noticeable among people with strong relationships “Comfort food seems to be something people associate very significantly with close relationships” it quoted Troisi “This probably comes about by individuals coming to associate a particular food item with members of their family social gatherings and people taking care of them which is why we see a lot of comfort foods [that are] traditional meals or things had at a party” The “comfort” in comfort food is provided as much by the familiarity of an oft-had meal as memories If you are a working mother cooking a weekday dinner — or perhaps like me simply a lazy and disorganised cook — you don’t have the luxury of contemplation What you do have however is a repertoire of ready recipes that you’ve grown up on and are a living testament to their nourishing qualities and a world of ingredients to choose from The rest is up to your imagination and how inventive/adventurous you’re feeling that day Sometimes these substitutions bear sublime results I’d go so far as to say that in some cases the abundance and easy availability of quality ingredients and labour-saving gadgets makes it possible to recreate even better versions of what the best shops back home sell Like mishti doi — the classic Bengali end note to any feast To my great joy and surprise I recently discovered that I can produce a healthier creamier version of Kolkata’s finest in exactly 45 mins in three steps — one open three cans (evaporated milk condensed milk and Greek yogurt); two blend their contents in equal parts; three steam the mix in an oven for about half an hour Et voila sublimity on a plate A Marathi friend uses Greek yogurt to replicate chakkha in her shrikhand recipe And the internet abounds in recipes of sandesh and rosogolla made with ricotta Then again at times the experimentation gets so wondrous it slips into the bizarre territory A recent photo shared on a desi group on Facebook that generated much commentary was of an inviting looking plate of karela pasta Yes you read that right karela pasta Busy working mum Rimli Bhattacharya had been given this bizarre recipe by an Indian friend who now lives in Japan Not a karela enthusiast herself Bhattacharya had ignored it for a while till the sheer weirdness of the idea became too irresistible So one brave weekend (or bizarre) she shallow fried some diced karela over a low heat till they were tender (the slow cooking got rid of much of the bitterness she said) and dressed it up with some garlic olives tomato puree and parmesan and tossed it with some spaghetti The result to her delight met with the approval of not only her karela-loving husband but even her three-year-old daughter The kid of course picked the karela out in the time-honoured childhood tradition and heaped them on the side of her plate untouched but happily polished off the rest of the meal A Fried Swiss Chard with garlic and nuts byAmrita Roy: Ingredients 1 bunch rainbow chard 3 cloves of garlic finely

and other relationship issues a new study has said Based on the feedback from 50000 older persons across the country during the months of June and July this year the study by Agewell Foundation

all governmental schemes and programs because their life span and their share in national population has increased remarkably Ignoring their needs and rights and leaving them unaddressed can pose a great threat to our social development agenda Older persons need to be brought into mainstream by focusing on their issues and encouraging their active participation in the society” Himanshu Rath

society “Issues concerning older people have become a major challenge for all of us Modern value system is replacing our centuries-old traditions In modern fast-paced lifestyle they are finding it tough to adjust themselves with emerging trends” he said The Foundation said strengthening financial inclusion of the elderly in order to make every individual above the age of 60 financially independent was important Suggested provisions included free health counselors for the elderly living alone establishment of a national institute for aged on the lines of AIIMS for treatment and research in age related ailments and setting up of a national fund for the aged (on the lines of National Fund for Rural Development) Rath also said setting up of a national commission for the aged a
