fondest memories of my grandmother have to do with food Ma (which is what I called her) wasn’t a foodie in the strictest sense of the word Eating she believed was almost akin to meditation — gluttony stood in the way of the senses imbibing the flavours and smells This contemplative manner was the hallmark of Ma’s running the kitchen at our home almost till the day she passed away I would often wake up to the sound produced by the clashing of two stones That was Ma using the nora a black oblong pestle to grind mustard seeds on the sil a pentagonal slab of stone This I realise now would have taken some doing for my frail grandmother She would squat in front of the sil then bend forward with the nora attacking the mustard seeds chillies or the ginger with the gusto of a soldier till they relented to release their flavours At times I thought that the sil and the nora were my grandmother’s best friends so much so that the relative tranquility of our middle-class existence seemed threatened when my parents purchased a mixer-grinder Ma used it but was immediately put off by its performance The spices had been almost ground to dust the mustard seeds had lost their sharpness and the paste was nowhere close to the desired sunshine hue Suitably chastened my parents packed away the mixer-grinder for those rare days on which Ma took a break from the kitchen One apparatus did vie with the sil and nora for my grandmother’s affections in the kitchen: the bonti A curved iron blade arising out of a flat wooden stand which Ma would hold in place with her feet the bonti was sharp enough to cut fish and safe enough to dice vegetables My grandmother would rarely use the blade to cut fish though Among all her kitchen tasks I thought she enjoyed peeling vegetables the most — cubing pumpkins slicing gourds dicing potatoes chopping tomatoes and cutting aubergines into shapes that gave the platter the look of an artwork Each vegetable had to be given a shape that would enable them to imbibe the qualities of the panchphoron Ma would say The panchphoron the five-spice mixture is the foundation of Bengali cuisine It is made up of equal portions of mustard fennel fenugreek cumin and nigella seeds A pinch of this thrown into hot mustard oil produces an aroma that is at once sharp and delicate My grandmother had not given up on non-vegetarian food — unlike most Bengali widows But it was vegetables she seemed to relish most Though I would have liked to have non-vegetarian food every day I should admit that I did not always dislike vegetables As I grew in years I developed a love for chorchori the medley of pumpkins aubergines potatoes and a few other assorted vegetables that was a regular feature of our meals Suffused with the smells of spices ground on the sil nora the panchphoron’ s pungency and the sharpness of mustard it reminded me of my grandmother long after she left us Two years ago I moved to Mumbai for what turned out to be a very short relocation While sorting out items in my house I chanced upon a notebook with recipes written in my mother’s neat handwriting My mother loved collecting recipes — from TV cookery shows friends publications The notebook though also had dishes that were quotidian Amongst them was a chorchori recipe with a note that the sil nora is always preferable to a grinder Perhaps that was my mother’s way of honouring her mother-in-law RECIPE Chorchori Ingredients Half a cup each of peeled and chopped potatoes kumro or pumpkin (with skin and pith) chopped brinjal chopped broad beans and stringed and chopped drumsticks (optional) Method * Chop all vegetables in roughly same size Drumsticks should be two-and-half inches long * In a karahi add two tbsp mustard oil and heat it till smoking point
