Food is a great leveler. It’s a warehouse of memories and can offer comfort like few other things. Whenever I feel intensely homesick, my tongue yearns for familiar flavors that remind me of my childhood and my hometown. But this one trip in Hyderabad with close friends was a discovery in itself. After devouring all of these in one sitting, we went on this curious hunt for the delectable Kala Jamun. Needless to say, it remained elusive. In one of our conversations, my friend reminded me about how life these days has become like that Kala Jamun. We have everything we need, good friends, good food, good drinks, great company… but still wander in search of that Jamun. He couldn’t be more right!
