Hunting for Nutella in Kolkata...
The first thing we did when arriving in Kolkata was to jump into a taxi and go eat rolls (the paratha roll with chicken and eggs is a local speciality) at Zeeshan at Park Circus.
This is how we got to think of a Nutella paratha roll... An idea that wouldn’t just pass!!
We therefore started our way back to the hotel walking and hunting for Nutella.
The guy from the first stall had some! But when he asked me if I wanted it in seeds or powder, I got confused... Indeed, he wanted to sell me some Nutrela (some kind of soya derivative)!
The guy from the second shop had some Ferrero rochers and Kinder buenos. I could bet everything on him!
Since he didn’t understand Nutella, I tried "chocolate paste" and his face lit up! And he handed over a tube of Colgate... (from paste he had come up with tooth paste!).
The guys from the third, fourth and fifth stalls did not have Nutella nor knew what it was, even in the touristic neighborhood. We therefore concluded that Nutella had not yet reached Kolkata – whether it is a good or a bad thing is not the question...
So we thought of buying some chocolate and wondered how it would melt. And then we looked at each other, soaked with sweat and it hit us!! Two minutes in the ambient heat of the night and we had a chocolate spread!
