was a short walk away In our house I remember the days leading up to Christmas would see the preparation of a new sweet every day My sister and I would return from school and we would find our grandmother and our helps sitting around the table and preparing these delicacies One day it would be milk cream the next day it would be fudge the day after kalkals and so on until Christmas We all had duties including the children and we used to love setting up the tree the crib and lighting up the whole house Watch What Else is Making News Preparations for the long-awaited Christmas day meal would begin one or two days in advance and my grandmother would supervise all preparations There was a lot of baking to do and the base pastes of the curries would be made in advance as they tasted better when matured for a couple of days The way East Indians celebrate Christmas is not really very different from other communities and the only real difference is the food Many people confuse Goan and East Indian dishes but they’re quite different Like Goans East Indians also use vinegar in food but we don’t use as much fresh coconut as they do Goans actually use a lot of fresh spices and masalas while preparing their food But East Indian food has a lot of Marathi influence so we usually use dry masalas The East Indian bottle masala in fact is a spice mixture that is used in almost every East Indian dish and it gives a distinct flavour to the food When I recall the Christmas meals of my childhood the aroma of pilaf vindaloo and sorpotel and the warmth of fresh bread and fugias come back to me During Christmas many times duck moile used to be made for lunch but whenever we had guests over for lunch lobster moile would feature on the menu I always liked this better than duck or chicken because I love seafood Lobster Moile Lobster MoileIngredients Lobsters 4 large Ghee/oil 4-6 tbsp Onions sliced into rings 2 medium Garlic cloves sliced into 12 fine julienne Ginger sliced into fine 1 inch julienne Green chillies sliced into 6 fine julienne East Indian bottle masala 2 tbsp Fish stock 750 ml Brown palm vinegar 60 ml Salt 1 tsp Black pepper powder 1 tsp Method As told to Pooja Pillai Neil Nongkynrih Founder Shillong Chamber Choir While growing up in Pohkseh Shillong in the ’70s the most exciting bit about Christmas would be the new clothes we would get On Christmas eve I would go carolling from house to house with my cousins and friends At these homes we’d get cake and tea and by midnight we’d be back In the morning under the Christmas tree would be a present for each of us We’d wear new clothes go out and see what gifts our friends got Since we follow the Presbyterian church we wouldn’t go to the church on Christmas day My mother would prepare Christmas lunch which was a simple but delicious meal comprising rice and beef or chicken It was a big deal to cook chicken it was almost a delicacy After lunch all of us would head to our neighbour’s house They would make delicious homemade potato chips a cheese dip and cake which would have dry fruits matured over a month It was an open house and over tea we would sing carols Those were simpler times Now our Christmas meals are quite lavish I prepare turkey salmon roast pork baked potatoes gravy and veggies for family and close friends After lunch people come home — friends and neighbours — and we serve cake tea and egg sandwiches As told to Somya Lakhani Zachariah Jacob Partner Mahabelly Delhi; shares his food experience: My earliest memory of Christmas is this particular year when we had a lot of relatives at home for the holidays and my father had hired a local cook in Kerala named Vasu Chettan who was a duck specialist to assist in the kitchen While most of my cousins were busy singing carols and bursting crackers I cherished spending time in the kitchen in his company – listening to his local anecdotes and watching him at work My grandmother had a significant role in bringing in the season by soaking dry fruits in rum and giving it enough time to mature for the perfect plum cake which marked the beginning of the Christmas season I remember even when she was in her early 70s she would churn out jams squash pickles and my favourite wine These homemade goodies were distributed among neighbours and members of the local church and we the grandchildren were her carriers Traditionally the Christmas feast marks the end of the 25-day fast that starts from December 1 During the fast we usually refrain from having meat and alcohol which is the reason why the spread is rich in meat dishes There are the duck mappas (duck in thick coconut milk gravy) pork varattiyathu (pork sautéed with onions) chicken roast (chicken in luscious onion and tomato gravy) and fish molee (fish in mildly spiced coconut gravy) accompanied with kallu appams (flat breads made with toddy) In our house fish pie has also entered the menu Wine plum cakes and Christmas puddings are also some of the must-haves My personal favourite would to be Kuttanadan duck roast I am sharing a recipe by my aunt Anila Jacob Abraham who lives in Kuttanad Kerala This dish in its original form

infectiona finding which they claim could soon pave the way for a new vaccine against it A team in Britainled by Dr Arthur Thompson from the Institute of Food Researchhas carried out a research which has shown for the first time Salmonella’s weakness for sugarthe ‘Infection and Immunity’ journal reported “This is the first time that anyone has identified the nutrients that sustain Salmonella while it is infecting a host’s body” Dr Thompson said Salmonella food poisoning causes infection in around 20 million people worldwide each year and is responsible for about 200000 human deaths It also infects farm animals and attaches to vegetables During infectionSalmonella bacteria are engulfed by immune cells designed to kill them Butinstead the bacteria multiply As Salmonella must acquire nutrients to replicatethe scientists focused on glycolysisthe process by which sugars are broken down to create chemical energy They constructed Salmonella mutants unable to transport glucose into the immune cells they occupy and unable to use glucose as food These mutant strains lost their ability to replicate within immune cellsrendering them harmless “Our experiments showed that glucose is the major sugar used by Salmonella during infection” Dr Thompson said The mutant strains still stimulate the immune systemand the scientists have filed patents on them which could be used to develop vaccines to protect people and animals against poisoning by fully virulent salmonella Glycolysis occurs in most organisms including other bacteria that occupy host cells Disrupting how the bacteria metabolise glucose could therefore be used to create vaccine strains for other pathogenic bacteriaincluding superbugs The harmless strains could also be used as vaccine vectors For examplethe flu gene could be expressed within the harmless Salmonella strain and safely delivered to the immune system For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Khushboo

an anachronism amidst high rises such as Godrej Bayview stands a sprawling white two-storey bungalow Kishori Court worth at least Rs 500 crore in today’s prices traces its ownership to a Pakistani actress of the ’40s known for a flamboyant lifestyle It is now in possession of the Custodian of Enemy Property and unsurprisingly is also on the radar of property developers Some of its tenants fear it is haunted and perform a shanti puja at the courtyard every year Kishori Court was owned by Bai Hamida Begum popularly known as Kishori an influential actor and businesswoman of the 1940s She left for Pakistan in the late 1950s However unlike others who willingly migrated to the newly formed country Kishori didn’t want to leave India because she had amassed a fortune which included a sea face villa interest in a cinema theatre accounts in various banks and jewellery in more than one bank locker She had some of the country’s richest Marwari patrons There was just one hitch: she had just finished a five-year jail term for allegedly murdering a police inspector Dattatraya Sadashiv Nadkarni She also owed huge sums to the government in taxes When Kishori left for Pakistan the Custodian of Enemy Property quickly impounded her property under the Enemy Property Act The murder of Nadkarni on February 8 1949 with its mixture of glamour intrigue and elements of crime passionnel were splashed across newspapers Even today the website of the City Civil and Sessions Court in Mumbai lists the Nadkarni murder case as one of the most important case tried at the court among “Lloyds Bank Dacoity case the Kasab Case Telgi case the Chunawalla Murder Case and Comm Nanavati case” Barrister Khalid Latif Gauba whom Kishori consulted during the trial wrote about her case in his book Battles at the Bar (1956) On February 8 1949 Nadkarni was pushed to death from the first-floor balcony of this bungalow Who was he and what connection did he have with Kishori According to Gauba’s book Nadkarni was a former police inspector He had become Kishori’s constant companion and wished to marry her That night there was a loud party on the first floor By that time Kishori “the handsome courtesan” was known for throwing lavish parties and despite prohibition she served some of the best liquor to her patrons which Gauba writes could “make the mouth of the most ardent prohibitionist water” “All the powerful people used to visit Kishori Begum At that time this house was on the most deserted road in Bombay So anyone could do anything here No one bothered to disturb” says Kandarp Desai 66 whose family has been the tenant at Kishori Court since 1950 Kishori’s home comprised two flats on each side of a courtyard — it had large rooms on each side a drawing room dining room music room several bedrooms and bathrooms According to Gauba Kishori’s own bedroom was “the last word in delectable slumber” “In Kishori’s room there was in addition to other items of luxury a glass showcase in which about 500 different perfumes the costliest from Paris New York and London in proud display…The reception room ‘B’ was decorated in Western Style ornate with mirrors deeply cushioned sofas radiogram and books” writes Gauba “My very first memory of Kishori Court is when my parents and I came to see the house before we started living here I was over five years old and I distinctly remember my mother and I inspecting the rooms The moment we opened the main bedroom facing the sea my mother covered my eyes as the walls of the room were full of erotic drawings My father got the walls painted before we moved in Ten years ago while we were redoing the room I could still see the faint drawings So I got both the walls covered with wooden cabinets” said another tenant who didn’t wish to be named Gauba’s book says that the February 8 party was arranged by Kishori for two Delhi-based millionaires Nadkarni who sometimes spent his nights at Kishori Court arrived around 11pm but did not join the party and sat in a separate room Later he objected to the party going beyond midnight and insisted it break up “Kishori was palpably annoyed and called on Nadkarni to pay off the dancing girls himself” writes Gauba According to Sadhu Dondhu Pawar a domestic help who was a witness for the prosecution Kishori and her helps assaulted Nadkarni in her bedroom until he was unconscious The building’s gardener later testified that he saw Jagdish and Rampal (Kishori’s helps and co-accused) throw Nadkarni out of the covered balcony on the north side of Kishori Court Jagdish held Nadkarni by his neck and Rampal by his legs “Nadkarni died a few days after being admitted to the hospital and thereafter Kishori and her servants had to face a charge of murder and not merely of attempted murder” writes Gauba She however didn’t go without a fight “Kishori was a very powerful lady Powerful in terms of finance connections and her personality too was powerful” adds Desai a businessman who has interacted with Kishori in the past Thus when Kishori’s bail application succeeded and she was asked to furnish two sureties in substantial sums “a highly placed military officer and a prominent motor car dealer” immediately stepped in and bailed her out writes Gauba But eventually her influence didn’t help as she was convicted and spent five years in lock-up before leaving the country in the 1950s In the early 1960s a Mumbai-based businessman Ramnik Shah bought Kishori Court in an auction conducted by the tax department to recover municipal taxes owed by Kishori Begum But within a few years the auction was reversed due to ownership issues The property as per a Bombay High Court order was re-vested with the Custodian of Enemy Property Today the drab white bungalow is occupied by four tenants who have been there since the early 1950s “We have been paying rent to the custodian as per the Tenancy Act as the property vests with it” says a tenant who didn’t wish to be named Tenants didn’t say what their current rent is except that it was “nothing as per the current real estate rates” Typically at Worli Sea Face the current rate of rent for a two bedroom- hall-kitchen house is over Rs 12 lakh a month “Since the (Nadkarni) incident we perform a shanti puja to ward off evil spirits” says the tenant Evil spirits or not the property located in a prime area just 50 metres away from the Bandra-Worli sea link is on the radar of many people “A lot of politicians have been eyeing this property We have received request from all kinds of people who want to take control of this property” said the unnamed tenant quoted earlier Property developers too have been interested In 2006 Orbit Corporation Ltd in its initial public offering prospectus said the company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to acquire Kishori Court However Orbit’s claim was challenged by Kishori’s son Hameed Ullah Lalji in court According to sources the dispute is stuck in the lower court Pujit Agarwal chairman of Orbit declined to comment On March 14 Parliament passed a bill amending the 49-year old Enemy Property Act making the Custodian the owner of enemy property retrospectively from 1968 The new law prohibits legal heirs of enemies from inheriting enemy propertyThe law also voids the legal sales undertaken by enemies of such properties since 1968 This means that a person who may have bought an enemy property in good faith when such sale was legal now stands to lose the property While the new law empowers the government to sell enemy properties the tenants of Kishori Court may soon have to vacate For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News
