Food from the hills 8.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Saturday
When I land at Dehraduns Jolly Grant Airport, the air is crisp and the landscape is a dull green carpet that continues onto the mountains, amid open fields and colourful houses. I drive into Antara, a senior living concept that invites residents above 55 years of age to live on its 14-acre property situated on the plateau surrounding by Mussorie hills in Purukal village. Chef Arun Karara, head of menu creations, has prepared a traditional lunch for us, using locally sourced produce and recipes. "I am in charge of a healthy and balanced diet for the residents and when I looked around at the region, I realised that the high-quality local produce here can make my task simpler. Any meal in the hills is ghar ka khana," he smiles, adding that they work with a food partner network that deals directly with farmers to source produce. Vegetables in Dehradun have travelled only a short distance from the farms, which ensures their freshness and taste. Dehradun is a pot belly, which combines Garhwali and Kumaoni ...

Jowar on your platter 4.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The rhythmic tapping of jowar dough on a flat surface signals that the meal is ready in any house or khanavali (traditional eatery) in the undivided Dharwad district. The thali (meal) of this region, the heartland of jowar rotis, invariably has fluffy, soft jowar roti along with curries like badnekayi enagayi (brinjal stuffed with spices and dipped in gravy), chutneys, jhunkad wadi (solidified gram flour with chilli), pudi (dry powder of a variety of lentils), menthe soppu (fenugreek leaves), a salad of tender cucumber, radish and onions, and rice with curds. Though North Indian and continental foods have made their way into the urban areas, it is jowar roti (also called as bhakri), which reigns supreme in the kitchens here. Be it the soft roti or kadak roti (a crispy variant of roti with more shelf life) or the jolada nucchu (jowar flour stirred into semi-liquid form with vegetables) or jola baana (For this, jowar is first pounded and soaked overnight. It is then boiled and eaten with curds, onion, ...

State to set up innovation hub for agri startups 3.12.2017 deccanherald.com
While Bengaluru is hailed as Indias Startup Capital, the agriculture sector has not caught the attention of entrepreneurs and investors. The state government wants to change this by setting up a Centre of Excellence that can identify innovators in the sector, fund and mentor them. The government is in talks with the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP), one of Indias premier life sciences technology and innovation hub, for setting up the facility that Agriculture Minister Krishna Byre Gowda hopes will boost innovation in the sector leading to creation of agri startups. "The idea is to identify key problems in the agriculture sector, put up grand challenges and develop companies," Gowda told DH. "Many of the problems in agriculture are not well articulated. As a result, it doesnt attract talent and investors. In life sciences, for instance, problems are well known. Once you have a well-defined problem, people may come forward to solve it using technology. And once theres technology, you ...

Since Millets are highly nutritious when compared to other cereals, the Centre is planning to distribute it to citizens through public distribution system and midday meal schemes. "We are trying to ensure millets are brought under the PDS (Public Distribution System) and schemes like Midday Meal. Niti Aayog has suggested this should be part of the PDS," Union Agriculture Secretary S K Pattanayak said on Monday. Ragi has a very high calcium content.
