Mom came for a visit this morning, after a long journey through the night. She was sleepy after the tiring, sleepless journey. So I chose to take the honour of making breakfast. It had to be Uppittu - every man's favoured quick fix. And it is something I have mastered over years and confidant about not screwing up.
Halfway through the cooking session, I realized I forgot to buy lemons at the grocery shopping yesterday. Ok, lemon is not a vital ingredient for Uppittu, I told myself and continued. But it bothered me.
A minute later, I heard the sound of refrigerator door opening and closing. And mom calls out, do you want lemons? She had brought lemons with her!
