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.

"Hydroelectric power is suffering in Karnataka for the last three years due to failed monsoons. It is unfortunate that farmers irrigation pump sets in the state do not get eight hours of power supply for watering of crops. Karnataka can buy power from the Centre at Rs 3 per unit," he said. He continued: "Since the NDA came to power, we have increased the number of transmission lines in South India. We aim to increase it fivefold." Asserting that the country has enough coal supplies, Goyal said the Union government had sanctioned solar parks with a capacity of 2,000 MW to Karnataka. "Energy shortage shrunk in April ...
