I vividly remember my Grandmother laddling crispy meatballs out from the sizzling oil in her kitchen. Meatballs – we call it ‘Kola Urundai’. The ‘Kola Urundai’ prepared by my Grandmother used to be perfect with crispy outer shell and well cooked meaty content inside.

Being a kid, I run down so fast and when I ask for them to my grandma, she will ask me to take it myself from the fridge. We had a nice gorgeous fridge painted in white. But when I open the fridge, there will be a weird smell and somehow I figured out that it came from a fat, bullet-like, maroon vegetable in the vegetable box. I never had idea what was that maroon thing, or what was inside it, but was sure that it’s a vegetable since it was in the fridge’s vegetable box. I did not bother to ask my grandma what was that vegetable but was hurry fleeing… Continue reading »
