We had a wonderful day at Solitude Farm & Organic Kitchen in Auroville.
It was the Lively Up Your Earth! Eco-Music Festival – an all-day celebration, all about community, ecology, music, organic food and a celebration of Auroville creativity.
Met some lovely souls and of course sold out in just a few hours.
For me, there’s no place like Auroville, ever!

It’s heart wrenching to know that today’s parents have no clue what is
- potentially fatal or
- soul food
for their own blood.
It was easier to put our welfare in the dedicated hands of our Parents. Since then its been a serious downfall. Ask them about the Maida influx into the Roti devouring Indian culture. Maybe their own child is eating pasta/pizza everyday but what to do the dead grain wins over and above everything.
Is it that we have any dearth of good grains ? How about the list below to name a few ?
- Whole Wheat
Came across something absolutely stunning and know you would all love to try it.
So ladies and Gentlemen presenting Horchata
Makes 7 servings
Adapted from recipes from Rick Bayless and David Lebovitz
2/3 cup white rice
2 cinnamon sticks
Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
3 2-inch strips of lime zest (colored rind only) 3/4 inch wide
3 cups of hot water
3/4 – 1 cup sugar
3 cups of cold water
Grind the rice in a blender or spice grinder into fine pieces. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl and add in the cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and lime zest. Stir in 3 cups of hot tap water, cover and let stand at least 6 hours or preferably, overnight.
Remove the cinnamon sticks and pour the mixture into a blender and blend for 3 to 4 minutes, until it no longer feels very gritty. Add 2 cups of water, and then blend for a few seconds more. Set a large sieve over a mixing bowl and line with 3 layers of dampened cheese cloth. Pour in the mixture a little at time, gently stirring to help the liquid pass through. Squeeze the cheese cloth firmly to extract as much of the rice flavor as possible.
Add 1 cup of water and stir in your desired amount of sugar, mix until the sugar is dissolved. Taste, and adjust sweetness, if necessary. If the consistency is too thick, add additional water. Cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. Stir before pouring. Serve over ice with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon on top.

Do try and share.
Here´s the photo. It was taken in El Retiro (the “Central Park” of Madrid).
The big building its overlooking is the El Prado art museum. Hope you guys like it.
Sorry if the packaging looks a bit crumpled, being inside of a suitcase for 3 days will do that to you!
Thankfully the cakes didn´t lose any of their flavor, they were delicious 🙂 Thanks again Taantraa!
My sister really liked the pendant and the red wine cake (she hardly left me any!), so the thanks is from her too.
The rush that surges through these divine cakes are an amalgamation of certain energies, which are woven together to create pure threads of molten gold, sometimes wrapped in
- moong dal
- coffee choco
- just nuts
- almond orange
As the Taantraa unfolds thus the cakes rises and peaks. The said energies are a part of this and that with a lop solid dollop of magick potion. To disclose the must haves elements:
- Multi garin
- Wheat grass
- Popping sodas
- Magick potions
This is the mix that gets the soul on a cosmic trip. Once the magick settles the soul hears the song and dance of woven gold.
