Here I am trying my hand at rolling out roti under the watchful eye of our host's kitchen helper in Ahmedabad. I didn't succeed in rolling out a very round and symmetrical roti--for that I would have had to start at about age 4 and continue for several years!
Here's a fellow making Jalebi. I was tempted to try it but decided not to. Later that day, at the Vishala a Gujarati Crafts Village Complex just outside of Ahmedabad, we got some on our plates at dinner. It's sweet and rich.
Here's a view of my dinner plate that day...served on a stitched bamboo leaf plate which is biodegradable. This is what was commonly used for dinnerware in years gone by.
