Next time you are Indian-grocery-shopping on Devon Avenue, go to Patel's and find the ketchup department. Their SWAD brand has several flavors that make US ketchup taste like cardboard. My favorite is Chili Garlic Sauce, $1.99. It is not so hot as to incapacitate you but has a nice bite and a delicious flavor apart from the bite. I have never before used ketchup on eggs but am now hooked. While you are at Patel's, if you are a baker, consider Powdered Coconut, which is not powdered at all but simply grated much finer than US brands. How lucky we are to have Devon Avenue. I once met a woman who had lived in downtown Chicago for five years and had never been farther north than the zoo. If for no other reason than grocery shopping, please don't do that.
