“Michhri” !!!

That brought back some memories from the yesteryears!! Saw this in the Farmers’ Market. Not that I needed any sugar, but it so reminded of the “micchri”s (মিছরি) from early childhood, that I had to buy a packet. Came back and did two things immediately:

(*) checked the English word for this. Apparently, it is “Rock Sugar” (that is what it said on the packet too). Had heard of Rock Salt, but never of Rock Sugar. Also, I did not realize that each one of them is a single crystal.

(*) put one in my mouth and crushed it with the molars just like we used to do nearly fifty years back!!!

Now, of course, I have to figure out how to put it to some proper use. Old Fashioned cocktail, perhaps?
