How the omelette won my heart: Kunal Vijayakar on his love for the Parsi pora

The pora is an omelette so packed with ingredients that you can hardly taste the egg — much like the original omelette itself.
‘To work, for me, an omelette must have masala,’ Vijayakar says, ‘but the truth is you can mix the eggs with pretty much anything - even, as above, oatmeal, whipped cream and fruit.’(Shutterstock)

Mumbaiwale: Can you crack this 150-year-old cloth merchants’ code?

Fabric trading in 1800s Bombay was a complex affair, with towels, hand-signals and secret bids. See how one british newspaper described it
The man on the right is a Parsi, typically on the staff of a European cotton firm as a broker or clerk. His job would have been to show the goods, high-quality cotton fabric, to Hindu buyers like the man on the right, accept bids from each of them and submit it all in a book to his bosses.(The Graphic)
