Farmers Market, Dupont Circle, Washington DC

What a pleasure it was to be at the Farmer's Market yesterday. We did a cooking demonstration and met a lot of farmers and producers. Rain was in the forecast and still we had quite a good turn out. We demonstrated and talked about the following :

  • The art of using spices. - spoke about various permutations, combinations, sequence of using spices etc  and demonstrated how to make "lemon rice".
  • Demonstrated how to make "Oothapam."
  • Demonstrated the popular street snack "Bhelpuri"
