Spending our time untethering the mind, getting the fidgets out, exploring the in-between ideas, and learning kintsugi.

Dzükou tribal kitchen in Hauz Khas market.

Bhut Jolokia or Naga Mircha (Bengali/Naga name) or Ghost chili pepper – call it what you want but it is the second hottest chili pepper in the world. And Dzükou tribal kitchen in Hauz Khas market serves chutneys from the chili. Yum!

Smoked pork dish with an exceptional flavor. Szechuan pepper lingers on your tongue long after the plate is licked clean. If there is one must have dish at dzükou tribal kitchen, it is this one.

A particularly tasty red rice. Karen said that this was the traditional red rice of Nagaland and I haven’t been able to find a link.

Beans in a traditional curry. They were out of fresh bamboo shoot otherwise we would have gone for that.

One axhone (fermented soy) and one dry fish naga mirchi/bhut jolokia chutney. Dry fish one had a very umami flavor once you went past the fire on your tongue.
