Dinner with Calcutta/Darjeeling Chinese

Dinner here at home last Tuesday with a group of Calcutta/Darjeeling Chinese was a lot of fun. For most of us, it was the first time that we met together since living in India. Peggy and Cyril came down from Canada; Joy and Effa live in San Mateo; Alice lives in Hayward; Nicole lives in San Francisco; Noel and me in Berkeley. There was so much animation and joy in getting reconnected, exchanging of personal accounts of the '62 border war, life in Calcutta during that time, and the effects of the internment. There were also heartfelt stories about my parents. 

And what did we have for dinner, you ask? Indian food of course! Rice and dhal, chicken curry, eggplant with peas, aloo dum, spinach, cauliflower, and raita, For dessert, we had laddoos — Peggy had to bring them because of the "laddoo" chapter in my book! Joy brought her version of mishty doy—delicious, and not too sweet. Alice brought meat pasties and a couple of Chinese dishes thrown in, just in case...All in all, we ate a lot and had fun!

We'll have to have a repeat!
