Bite through the crispy outer layer of the Grenades and the warm potato gooeyness explodes in your mouth!
“Chai ke saath grenades khaoge, Sahib?(Will you have grenades with your tea, Sir)“, asked the cook. I was in utter shock the first time I heard this. Because I knew his love for machines, arms and guns are eternal and beyond words. And did the cook just ask him if he’ll have a bomb for his evening tea? What’s going on?
Any Armed Forces Officer is pretty sensitive towards their guns and rifles and it is a personal weapon to them- a best friend in times of trouble. They have undoubtedly mastered the art of handling the weapons and equipment having been trained, firing them from different positions in difficult situations and conditions. They are also crazy about their vehicles as they are trained to drive them, be it a gypsy or a heavy loaded truck, be it in the high-ranges on the foothills of Himalayas, or the arid deserts of Rajasthan or the snow-clad mountains of Leh- they do it with ease and style. I guess I needn’t talk about their crazy fascination towards Royal Enfields- the Bullets! Yeah, don’t get me started with that one!
Anyway, it seemed that the cook was asking about Potato bombs which by the way, is an edible thing. If you’ve leftover mashed potatoes and is wondering what to do with it, I’d say this is a great option. All you’ve to do is making a filling with veggies of your choice and/or meat, add a cheese cube, wrap with a soaked bread slice, coat with a batter and fry. Voila! Your comfort food is ready!
