Secret Sunday followup

Remember that day when I was obsessed with all things Indian because I was about to attend a Secret Sunday dinner?

It was great. Hosted in a very large, old house in the centre of Madrid, there were about 25 people (!) and one incredible Indian guy that cooked for everyone. I’m not sure what I ate, but it was really quite good (and I’m not a fan of Indian food!). We had a little crunchy tortilla-like-bread-slices (popadom?) made with chick peas and with a tomato-onion topping as starters, together with these large round bread-like things – fried on the outside but nice and soft on the inside. (note: I’ve been told what they were: potato patties, or Batata vada!) With a much-too-spicy-for-me sauce to put on top. Then we had a platters with veggies and rice (it was a vegetarian night) which was simple but good (and filling) and, my favourite, the dessert. Ice cream with mango sauce. mmmmmmmh mango!

The food was really good but the best thing was meeting new people. I do like meeting new people 🙂

Here are some photos… I can’t wait for the next one!

Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
