The other day my 11 year old complained.
"When I order something different in a restaurant and it doesn't taste nice you scold me for trying something new."
"And when I order Butter Chicken and Naan at a restaurant you say I should try something new!"
Ah! Parents! Bundles of contradictions.
How am I to explain to her that ordering a burger at a Vegetarian Idli-Dosa kind of place is never going to taste like McDonald's, and experimenting with a Afghani chicken or kebabs at a typical North-Indian/Mughlai restaurant is often a good change from the butter chicken and dal makhani???
At her age, we are strange and inconsistent...as I am sure I thought my parents were...
