I bought these cute little tiny bananas the other day.
I sliced them up and put them in my oatmeal, but it didn't quite taste right. I told my housekeeper that they tasted kind of different. She said "Yes, those are puja bananas." Puja? I thought. I know that word, but doesn't it have to do with Hindu prayers, or something?
She clarified: people don't usually eat these; this kind of banana is given as an offering at the temple.
Sigh. Sadly, I could write dozens of posts with the same title...
