Throughout time in India, millions of spouses have arisen early in the morning to prepare dabbas for their loved ones in hopes of providing them with nourishment for the workday ahead. The concept of tiffin, or ‘dabba’, is a longstanding tradition, wherein a dabba-wallah, or tiffin carrier, picks up the tiffin to deliver it to the workplace just in time for lunch, the meal still warm, come rain or come shine. As a child, Washington D.C. resident, and Mumbai native, Rupen Rao, grew up watching his mother lovingly prepare a tiffin for his father each and every day of a career spanning 35 years. Join Rupen this January for the same tiffin-style meal, created with the freshest ingredients and finest spices with the utmost attention to flavor, to bring you a little slice of mummy’s kitchen. Rupen’s vegetarian tiffin lunch will include masala chai; lightly seasoned vegetable salad (koshimbir) with lentils and rice (varan bhaat); spiced peanut and coconut stuffed Indian eggplants (vangi bhareet) with home-made roti bread; and warm carrot pudding with vanilla ice-cream. Rao, who has a line of cookbooks and spice blends, has made it his mission to take classic Indian cooking and adapt it to our day-to-day lifestyle here in the United States. Plus, each guest will go home with a copy of Rupen’s first cookbook Indian Cooking From My Mom, as well as their own personal 2-tier tiffin. Recipes will be provided.
