Spices is a topic that children usually do not get to see or discuss.

However, well into Namita Moolani Mehra’s session, it was apparent that it was an eye opening subject for the children of Lumba Kuda. Spices can be used in so many ways to whip up so many delicious dishes.

Spices are inherently lazy, said Namita. They have to be pounded to wake them up in order to enhance the flavour of food. Can you imagine this? Chilli powder can be added to chocolate mousse, a dessert to make it taste even more exotic. Going by the response of the children, Namita’s session has in all probability kindled an interest in cooking for many of the students gathered there today. All of them had that look about going home and thinking of something to cook up.
