A very big hai to everyone who are following my blog posts. Today let’s have a fun post… Hope you all have read my post on which I explained my little companion. Yes, Innus used to accompany me in kitchen for most hours in a day. Since he will be in lab. When we reached India our kitchen being half the size of our home in Germany, Innus started to have a small temporary kitchen for her play time. Gradually it developed to the state of joining us for cooking. The pic above was taken once she was making dosa, imitating as in the video.
The kitchen is the best place for our kids to learn all subjects. From chemistry to physics and botany to zoology and even history too. For example, let’s examine the process of dosa making. The batter should be made in proper proportions of rice and urid dal. Then it should ferment properly. For people living in cold areas, have a small quantity of batter on your kitchen counter top and leave it on a stand. The base of the vessel should not touch the floor. I used iron stands as in pic. They are hanging near Iniya.
Since it was hot plate I just place them near the stove after cooking. Else place them near a heater. If this small quantity gets fermented then add small quantity to this batter daily from the remaining portion of batter from your refrigerator. Don’t ever mix all. This may give sour taste for dosa and also fungus grows easily. All these need physics and chemistry. Then for perfect ghee roast dosa I used home made ghee. Since I get min of 500 gm butter in one and a half week, I use butter for Iniya’s dry skin and ghee for dosa and I substituted ghee for oils in cooking too.
When we start explaining these process behind cooking to our kids they gradually increase their interest in learning. That’s what our ancestors had in gurukulam. There is a school in Tübingen, which is similar to our ancestral education, am not sure of the name. But we were given some suggestion by a person who had his children being educated there. It was during a return from a German concert in which Sujit accompanied him for singing. So gradually we started explaining will It things to her as per his suggestions. And it’s result is greater than day care.
Keep on reading our posts…will update a new post soon.
