My mother and I did a cooking class at the Sita centre in Pondicherry. It consisted of a class of three hours and then eating what we had cooked. Before actually cooking the teacher takes you to the Big Market on Gandhi Road and then the fun begins! As I was so busy cooking I didn’t get to take many good photos but I at least got the photos of the market, which is really interesting, and of the final results of the food. The market is broken down into “sections”. There is the meat section, the flower section, the fish section, the spice section, the fabric section (where I bought a magnificent hand woven bead throw), the vegetable and fruit section. I really loved this market with its high energy and playful atmosphere.
I will re-make these recipes soon and post them for you so you can get a taste of the south of India. I miss that place so much already.
