When Jaws Tremble - An Ode to a Tandoori Roti

Many years ago, I was dining at a prolific restaurant in Chandigarh with a friend. We ordered a buffet meal for the lack of options. And as a part of the meal, we were served tandoori rotis on the table, which turned out to be rather hard. How hard, you ask? Well, read on...


You looked so hot, and felt so cold. Your texture was gold, but deceptive as coal.

And then it happened, I tried biting in, My teeth rattled, And I lost my grin.

Jaws trembled, a pain shot through, you betrayed my faith, and killed my taste.

For rocks are soft, and mountains are silly, In front of you my dear, Even diamonds are like jelly!
