So how is it that I was scraping sag aloo* from my bike after this morning's ride, yet nothing that was flung into my face from the front wheel tasted remotely like spinach or potato?

* Messy spinach and potato side dish, popular in Punjab.


  • I hope you didn't try tasting it to confirm it was sag aloo... :D

    But what if it had been sag aloo and I'd just hosed the bike down without checking?

    Saag Aloo, lovely jubbly......

    Popular in Maharashtra as well......

    I can see what may look like saag, but potatoes?

    Classic sign of myxomatosis, rabbits extrete a solution which looks very similar to sag aloo, this is generally seen in the second week of the disease when it penetrates the digestive system.

    I only know this because I am a vet.

    It could be advised that you see your doctor and get a tetanus jab to be on the safe side.
