This blog is about our adventures in India, culinary or otherwise.
Here’s a culinary story that I haven't been able to figure out how to write up - so here goes.
Basically it involves guards at an embassy, squirrels and chutney.
You know where I’m going with this ??
Basically – there were certain guards at a certain embassy who were catching the squirrels, killing them, skinning them and then drying them out in the sun (it’s been over 40 degrees everyday for more than a month now). The end result was a sort of “squirrel jerky”.
They were then eating them and dipping them into a chutney for added flavour.
A certain security manager had to have a chat with the certain guards and advise them that eating squirrel jerky was not a good look (or words to that effect).
I could write another post on the conversation.
“But we’re only having them with chutney !!” I believe was the response.
I’ll let you picture this story and leave it at that.
