It was a lovely and fulfilling experience to see Mumbai’s solidarity at the Mumbai Marathon organized at Azad Maidan yesterday. My 7th Dream Run for the Forum of Autism and it is heartening to see that the cause is attracting more and more people with every passing year. This year, as always, Alyona and our daughters were with me and also Chitra, President of Forum of Autism. Harsha Bhogle was represented by his wife Anita and TV actor Manish Paul, showed his support by running with us. Even Alyona’s sister Jyotsna ran. My office team came in a large number. So, as we continue to support the cause of autism the numbers who are joining us are also increasing.
Last few days have been hectic and full of travel what with the opening of The Yellow Chilli in Bahrain and then in Nepal (Kathmandu). Two entirely different nations and cultures but because of their great expression of love for Indian food, they are bound together on the same string.
Tomorrow, doing a live demonstration at the Maharashtra Senior Police Officers’ Mess where the wives of police officials are getting together for their annual event. I will be demonstrating some mocktails, starters and desserts. Toward the end of the week, on Friday, going to Delhi to enjoy the evening with the band Indian Ocean performing at our lounge bar Sura Vie at Connaught Place.
As Makar Sankrant and Lohri mark the beginning of the warmer weather from now, let us make the most of the winter vegetables still available in their resplendent colours…here are some suggestions of main course that are perfect with rotis.
Till I write again
