Tricoloured salad and flat bread

Wishing all Indians a very Happy Republic Day! There was a flag hoisting and sports function in my building society just like all other societies. Independence and Republic day are all about the tricolour. I did not cook anything tricoloured for today but attended an organic farming workshop which had food in tricolours! During the workshop, we learnt how to make organic soil in small pits made by bricks on the rooftop of a college in Andheri.

This type of organic farming includes making brick pits and layering them leaves soaked in amrut jal and red soil alternatively. Now whether amrut jal is vegan or not is a metter of debate as it is a mixture of cow dung and cow urine left for 4 days and then diluted in huge containers. A mix of fallen leaves are soaked in it. The layers thus formed are tilled once in a week to create air circulation and the soil is ready in about 4 long months! But once prepared this amrut mitti (organic soil) is forever.

Anyways coming back to food, The trilocour salad is made by carrots, radish and spinach. The flat bread is also made by flattening a mix of three doughs – carrot paste, plain and spinach paste. And yes I forgot to mention before there was tricoloured uttapam too as you can see in my plate below. There were several other dishes like the home made whole wheat and millet bread and homemade strawberry jam! All in all an  awesome start to a sunday morning!
