My secondary school nickname was Rara (amongst other things). I’ve never been sure how Rara came about as Ryan Varga-Clark lends itself to many things, Ry, RyRy, V-C and others, but no obvious link to Rara. I’m not particularly ‘ra’ either (although I’ve been told I sound it, but blame a failed acting career for that).
To accompany our main courses we had Nepalese Special Daal (pictured left) and Bhindi Sukha (right). For me the Daal was the highlight of the evening: black lentils cooked with ginger, green chillies, onions and tomatoes, this was mild, simple, creamy and very moorish.
