This dark overcast morning, an uncanny ominous lull around, the birds and bees nowhere to be sighted, the Queen picks a very unlikely paramour in milk. Yes, milk !!!
Frown did many, we are cognizant, aren’t we, of the Queens amorous desire for mustard (the finger-licking delicious Shorshe Ilish) or curd or just gorgeous mustard oil (the humble and unpretentious yet delectable Ilish Tel Jhol) – but milk ?
But as ever, the prima donna serenades her lover in a stellar performance that stuns one and all, even her most cynical detractors, to a hushed silence. Simple yet eclectic. Humble yet divine. Earthy yet intoxicating.
Doodh Ilish – One of my favorite Ilish delicacies – do give it a try and I bet, you shall be transported to food heaven !!!
