  3. Wow. I love the way Mahanandi makes one see and appreciate every aspect of food — it’s so much more than something you cook and eat! Thanks, Indira and Vijay!

  5. LOL, I thought “chickpea flour” when I read this, and was like … “How is she gonna photograph some powder?”

  7. The photos, particularly the stream ones, scream SLR. This kind of depth in the details is only possible with an SLR, not with a camera like mine *Sigh*.

  10. Indira, my heart just melted looking at the chickpea flower. That, is a beautiful picture. I’ve a question…how long does it take for the plants to bear fruits? Would they be available for multiple harvests?

  11. Thanks for sharng my joy at this little beauty.

    Hi Vani: It took approximately one and half months for the flowers to appear. I started them from chickpea sprouts.
    Like any other legumes, they are single harvest plants.

  12. I think you have a green thumb Indira and vijay is a gifted photographer. Its really such a pleasure to read about such gifted people. I am ashamed of the pics I take.. thats bcos Im not as patient as the others.. not have thought abt photgraphy so much. I have been to Sree’s blog often and I find it amazing!
