Its Tuesday – my work from home day. I’ve been up and at the computer since 7.30am. I’ve had breakfast (sliced tomato on sourdough toast), showered and have been busy attending to all manner of things (remotely).
And now I’m hungry. There’s leftover chicken curry in the fridge. And a pot of freshly cooked rice on the stove. Perfect. But is it too early to eat curry at 9.30am? In India we started the day with idlis or dosas served with fresh chutneys and rassams or sambars – a great way to get you fired up and ready to face the heat outdoors. In southeast Asia we always have the local breakfast: a bowl of pho, nasi lemak, roti, congee – all hot, savoury and perfect starters.
I don’t really have a sweet tooth so biscuits don’t do it for me. Don’t want more toast. Fruit? Nah, too cold. Why not eat curry? I could call it a late breakfast Indian style. Besides, its calling out to be eaten. So curry, it is! The joys of working from home.
