A funny story about dessert "Mysore Pak."

Mrs. Mohan and Mysore Pak 


Subba Rao 

Juggernaut was recently elected as the President of the Association for
Advancement of Indian Cuisine in North America (AAICNA). In his first 
address to the membership, he wrote the following letter. 

Dear Members, 

As the newly elected president of AAICNA, I am committed to take the
responsibilities of this position very seriously. The Indian Diaspora 
in North America is now couple of millions but growing fast. Most 
Americans are crazy about Indian food and Indian restaurants are 
popping up everywhere. As members of AAICNA, we are responsible for 
monitoring the quality of food served in the Indian restaurants so as 
to maintain a standard. Since we live in America, where every aspect is 
classified into categories, it occurred to me that we shall classify 
various Indian dishes using Tier system based on popularity. 

Among scores of Indian sweet delicacies or deserts, the Thri Murthies or
Trinity are undoubtedly Jelebi, Laddus and Rasgulla. These three are 
automatically classified into Tier I class and Tier I is now closed for 
ever and no other sweet delicacy can be classified into Tier I class 
pursuant to AAICNA bylaws. 

I now invite the membership to nominate your favorite sweet delicacy for
Tier II category. To be classified into Tier II category, a desert has 
to be well known throughout the Indian community and perhaps outside 
the community and available in most restaurants. Besides, other 
features are taken into consideration as well. Please participate in 
this event and go ahead and nominate your favorite desert for Tier II 
category. During our next meeting, we will evaluate your nominations. 



President, AAICNA 

In response to Juggernaut's memo, several members of AAICNA showed up
for monthly meeting. Mrs. Mohan nominated Mysore Pak for Tier II 
category. Despite its regional name Mysore, this delicacy is well known 
throughout Indian community. Made from pure ghee (clarified butter), 
gram flour and sugar, a bite into a piece Mysore Pak is heavenly 
experience. The mouth feel will linger long after it was eaten. 

Dr. Meenakshi nominated Kakinada Kaaja. This is layered sweet delicacy,
each bite will release thick greasy sugar syrup into mouth that could 
cause temporary brain freeze. 

“both these nominations have strong regional affiliations, you know, I
am not sure if I could support any one of them,' commented Mrs. Patel, 
one of the influential committee member and also a generous donor. 

While these deliberations were taking place, Mrs. Selvaraj, an educator
by profession was surfing internet. “Do you know every island in the 
Caribbean has a Med school?” she exclaimed. 

“True Mysore Pak has in its name Mysore, a City in South India, but it
is well liked by all communities you know,” defended Mrs. Mohan. 

“How about Kakinada Kaaja, we never heard this before,” questioned Mrs.
Patel and Mr. Tulsi. 

“Could anybody believe a tiny island named Bonaire has a Med School,”
Mrs. Selvaraj shouted. No other member responded to Mrs. Selvaraj and 
left her alone to surf the internet while they continue to deliberate 
on the virtues of Mysore Pak and Kakinada Kaaja. 

If we were to apply strictly our bylaws, Kakinada Kaaja should be out of
consideration to be classified into Tier II class,” declared Mr. Tulsi, 
a man of conviction and strong feelings.
