Back to the Kitchen, Ladies? The Day After International Women’s Day

A man I know asked me the other day if I know how to make chapatis.

He wasn’t asking because he wanted us to exchange recipes, or debate on whether dhaniain chapatis is a good idea (it brings out a nice flavour, you see, as do carrots).

He was asking in a “but you’re a woman” kind of way.

I wasn’t sure how to answer.

It was the week of International Women’s Day, you know, the day everyone remembers that women are important.

I did not want to be rude or presumptuous. Maybe he really did want to have a culinary conversation.
