If you haven’t heard of Parekh and Singh, now would be a great time to look them up. The two-member pop group including singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nischay Parekh and drummer Jivraj Singh have just released a delicious new video (see below) for a song from Parekh’s debut album Ocean. Called “I Love You Baby, I Love You Doll” the song is as unhurried and romantic as the city that Parekh and Singh are from: Kolkata.
This is a Calcutta classic and is really unique to this nostalgic pseudo-anglicised cuisine that exists only in the city. It’s creamy, cheesy and topped with fried parsley. Sticks to your ribs. The ‘pepper’ version is a spicier variation.
