These hooch brewers turn new leaf with organic tea 21.8.2017 TOI: India
Peals of laughter pierce the silence of the Khasi and Jaintia hills but it isn’t easy to pinpoint the source through the swirling mist. A short distance ahead are mother and daughter Jil Pyngrope, 75, and Stailin, 40, standing on an incline plucking tea leaves, tossing them into baskets on their backs. Their chuckles hide the gloom of a difficult past.

Weaves that empower... 19.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
With the cabbage village of Zavame and the delightful Kapamadzu Peak behind us, en route to which we have had an unexpected and rather pleasant encounter with NSCN K, we are back on the road to explore Chizami situated in the forested countryside of Phek district. It is approximately 85 km from Kohima. Our guide has nudged us in the direction and has made us have great expectations from the trip. The NEN, the North-Eastern Network which has centres in three North-Eastern states of the country, started a women empowerment initiative in the village of Chizami (in Nagaland's Phek district), to address primarily the issues of sustainable livelihood, sanitation, governance, social injustice, domestic violence and gender inequality. They have also taken into their embrace natural resource management and the revival of traditional methods of agriculture. Millet production, which was the earlier staple and considered the poor man's food, is being given renewed attention. Started in 2008, NEN has now more than ...

A work in progress 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It is a tasting menu that you might not have laid your hands on before. Liquid egg bhurji with dehydrated garlic chutney, salicornia pakoda. Jhalmuri bar (ignore the granola, please); polenta upma; California halibut with gunpowder spice; seafood and millet khichdi; green pea kulcha with goat cheese and summer truffle. If that's the tasting menu, you know the kitchen is "progressive Indian"and the man behind it is chef Sujan Sarkar. In ROOH, San Francisco's mint-fresh bistro and bar, my eyes gazed at the jhalmuri bar with avocado, tamarind gel, mint chutney, and spiced buttermilk sorbet. Progressive? That is 3017 progressive, I thought. But I should have prepped myself for a 'progressive Indian' feast. As partner and chef of ROOH, Sarkar is re-cooking 'Indian' in San Francisco. This is not the first time, though. With a degree in hand and a stint in some of the most decorated restaurants in London, Sarkar opened The Tasting Lab in Olive Kitchen & Bar, and became chef and partner at Ek Bar, India's first ...

A farmer's date with dates 14.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Hundreds of yielding date palm trees in a farm in Saganahalli near Gauribidanur stand testimony to the innovative efforts of Diwakara Chennappa, a postgraduate from Begur village in Bengaluru Rural district. Interestingly, Diwakara had not considered farming as a livelihood option until he stumbled upon the book One Straw Revolution authored by organic farming pioneer Masanobu Fukuoka. The book came as a revelation for a person who till then believed that it was impossible to make a living out of agriculture, and created an urge in him to experiment with farming. In 2010, he started working in the land his father had bought in Saganahalli. "Though people discouraged me, I didn't want to deviate from organic farming," he says. He started off with maize and finger millet. But his dream was to grow something new to the region. A demonstration on date palm cultivation by Nizamuddin, a Tamil Nadu farmer, in the University of Agricultural Sciences, Bangalore, motivated him to experiment with the crop. He ...

One in a millet 8.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Wednesday
There's something about wanting your child to eat healthy food once you become a mother. That's probably why I started looking into ingredients that are high in nutrients. The best part is that my 10-year-old daughter is very honest when it comes to food. She doesn't think twice about how I might feel about her feedback, she tells me as it is. No complaints though she is what makes me want to improve it the next time I prepare it. I was always fond of cooking and as a child used to help my mother with simple tasks. Whenever she prepared 'dosa' at home, I would add oil and chutney to it; sometimes I even made salads and milkshakes. They were mostly 'no-fire' sort of work. But the first time I was in charge of the kitchen was when I was 17. My mother had to go out of town so I ended up preparing rice, 'sambhar' and 'rasam'. Sadly, my brother had to eat the extra turmeric 'rasam' I prepared. When I was preparing it, I tried to recollect how my mother normally made it and thought she added more turmeric. I ...
