Quandary Resolution 287
nettle, leaven, mollycoddle, affable
Katie was more iffy than affable in Mrs. Iyer's eyes, more likely to leaven the chicken curry than the dosa dough, more nettling than settling, and from the way Kumar mollycoddled Katie, she knew this would probably end up in a disastrous marriage if she didn't intervene.
