Ever wondered how those gorgeously embroideredk Kanchipuram saris are made? Check out the silk handloom weaving unit at the Craft Education and Research Centre (CERC), Kalakshetra, where you can see the making of the saris in action.




OC I Chennai I March 2020 1 P[

The stages of the process involve interlacing the borders with the body of the sari (korvai), interlinking of contrasting colours in the weaving of the weft, and the linking of the elaborate 'pallu' to the main body of the sari (pitni). Expect hand-spun silk, silk-cotton and cotton saris (based on traditional designs), dance dhavanis, dupattas and dress materials. Looking to own a piece of history? An extensive catalogue of sari designs (inspired by heirlooms, temple designs and Kalakshetra founder Rukmini Devi's personal choices) is available. Fifty exclusive designs have been licensed to the Tamil Nadu Handlooms Directorate and are marketed as 'Kalakshetra Saris'.

The clurpy service associates may recommend you to try their myriad organic tea from Assam or coffee from Karnataka whilst you debate over a neer dosa or kukha. The restaurant's signature small plates like the Thai shrimp garlic toast, basil chicken wings and crackling spinach corn should be on your must try list. The parathas are soft and are gently outlined to pair with the bite sizedsmoked butter chicken. The Baos, Dumplings and Wraps with interesting fillings are light yet full of flavour. Sea food lovers must try the shrimp scallion baby bok choy leaf wrap dumplings. At MKC you just cannot stick to a single stream of cuisine and would be compelled to travel along with the Chefs culinary medley. You are sure become a diehard fan of the rich nutty Shahi Tukda pudding and Coorg Coffee Tiramisu as Chef Teli has done a terrific job of enhancing the taste of the ingredients with a clever combination of what he has learnt over the years from world travelling. Besides buttermilk and panakam ,alcoholic mixology attains a glorious status where fresh jasmine syrup and kaffir lime play a part. Virudhunagar's famous Bovonto drink also features here and this reiterates the restaurant's support for indigenous manufacturers ! The ample sunshine , reading corner, interesting cutlery , well spaced seating and the non commercial taste of food accentuates the pleasure of eating at MKC.

1. How did you and Nimi meet ? We met at the Madras Catering College in Taramani in 1980. I was already in my second year when Nimi joined. Early on it was a great friendship that blossomed and eventually we started going out from 1981and married in 1989 2. When did you both decide that you want to travel the world ? We returned to Chennai in 2006 to take care of our ageing parents and in 2017, (after my dad passed away), we decided that we would take up our passion for travelling seriously. Both of us gave up our careers and have been travelling over the last 3 years, spending 6 months in India (during the cooler months) and 6 months away. 2017 saw us in Australia, 2018 took us to Mexico followed by the 7 countries of Central America. Having covered most of Far East, we set out to explore the remaining countries in 2019. Thereafter Japan , South Korea, Taiwan , Mongolia and almost the whole of China followed.

3. How are you able to juggle work and your love for travel? With a small team of professional consultants, I hand over my pending projects to them during our travels and they keep me constantly updated on the progress. When we are in India, I spend time overseeing any pending work 4. What makes Chennai so special for you and Nimi? We both have special memories of the 1970s/80's in Madras, where there was a mixed cauldron of tradition and modernisation. As they say Chennai is a City but Madras is an emotion!!!

The turmeric twist Why does India root for this Golden spice? The use of turmeric in India dates back to the Vedic period (nearly 4000 years) and even then it was used as a culinary spice and also had a sacred significance. Known as 'Haldi' in North India and 'Manjal' in south, this spice is renowned for its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. Modern medicinal research even claims that it prevents carcinogenesis and thereby different forms of cancer. In India, applying turmeric to the bride's face before the wedding is believed to give her the golden glow. The spice is also auspiciously smeared across doors, wedding invitations and even religious idols. If you want your daily dose of goodness, check out the recipe for spicy turmeric milk also known as golden milk in Ayurveda; it can be used to calm both the mind and the body.
