I'm Cat-Woman



This Sunday morning was quite an ordinary one. I was my lazy self, woke up around 8, attended some household chores and felt so jealous of my snoring cousin who had cozily claimed his morning slumber moment. Mom and dad took over the kitchen. Their mission was to prepare a Sundaylicious lunch. And the ordinary note turned into an extraordinary one.

 Veggies and Vegans may stop reading from here.

 Mission Accomplished:


Two spicy red scrumptious fish curries; Tilapia and Rohu. We bongs love our macher-jhol. And the lunch was undoubtedly the most delightful time of the day. I unlike most of the Bengalis prefer a little hillock of rice over the huge rice mountain. Knowing my dietary preferences mom served me the exact amount of rice, but, I didn't care for the size of the mountain, all I was waiting was for the two mouthwatering curries that were enchanting my nostrils with their hot pungent aroma.

I didn't have to wait at all, the fish made their grand entries on the dinning table and I, to the horror of any finishing school, attacked my food. Blending one part of my rice hillock with Rohu curry keeping the other half for Tilapia curry, I began my luncheon journey. I broke the fish piece skillfully tearing apart the flesh from the bones at a lightening speed. An expertise I've required in years.

The soft flesh of the fish just melted inside my mouth. I finished it again within minutes and grabbed the Tilapia. No guesses that I gorged it in similar way. The bright red curries- one thick, one tad runny- with juicy cubed potatoes and the perfect mix of spices made me hog like a glutton. My plate was clean and shiny like it came straight from the factory. Even the fish bones weren't spared, I sucked the whatever little flesh and fish oily chunk were stuck to it like it was my last day on earth. No lady like etiquette, my hogging was purely a feline approach. Dad mockingly nudged my cousin, "she is the kitten of our house". I corrected him, "I'm Cat-woman".

  7. Cat-women. That's something. Fish is a very good food, taste-wise and health-wise. Sad I can't have it.

    Many congratulations on the awesome achievement. :)
