    MANGKOTTAI Kuzhambu. Or Dried Shell of Mango Seed Gravy. It is one of the manyA�recipes in the impressive 2014 cookbook by Meyyammai Murugappan and Visalakshi Ramaswamy, better known these days as the a�?Spice Sistersa��. Given that the trees in our city are getting heavy with the fragrant green fruit, it could be a fine addition to the cooking workshop by Murugappan, scheduled for next Saturday. Rakesh Raghunathan, the food show host and writer, who has curated the event, promises two appetisers, a main course and a dessert. A friend of the M81rwd+6eAnLurugappan family, he has convinced the media-shy former President of the National Association for the Blind, to open her house on Chithranjan in Teynampet to 25 eager participants. a�?It will be in her backyard, where a pond and numerous trees will offer a delightful setting to the vegetarian classes underway,a�? he shares, adding that they decided to keep this workshop vegetarian on popular demand. The cookbook, which took a decade, explores century-old culinary traditions followed in the dry Chettinad region. While Murugappana��s role as raconteur may be a well-kept secret, Raghunathana��s recent stint on TV, courtesy Sutralam Suvaikalam, his year-old food and travel show on News7Tamil, shows the blogger to be adept at findingA� and presenting heirloom recipes and quaint eateries. Post summer, he will be organising another authentic food experience in a home in Sowcarpet. But for now, wea��re waiting to see what the Chettinad chapter is all about. Saturday, April 9, from 10 am to 1 pm, at Rs 1,000 per guest. Register on www.puliyogaretravels.com
