Get a taste of Ceylon in 3 courses, from Don’t Give A Fork
Mumbai-based pop-up Don’t Give A Fork — set up by food bloggers Payal Bhuptani and Upasana Shukla Maheshwari — is onto their fifth outing next weekend with a Sri Lankan pop-up. Says Bhuptani, “We set up the blog two years ago and launched our first pop-up in August 2014.” The two partners are also travel enthusiasts, and most often come up with ideas for their pop-ups based on their trips. The Sri Lankan pop-up is a result of Maheshwari’s travels to the country in December last year. Adds Bhuptani, “She came back with recipes and masalas, and since I’ve been to Sri Lanka before as well, we were sure that this was something we could pull off.” Both Bhuptani and Maheshwari test out their menu a month ahead to decide whether they’re ready to roll. While the pop-up included three courses — including both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes — here are some traditional Sri Lankan dishes that will be a fantastic introduction to the cuisine:
This dish evolved on the streets of Sri Lanka and has now turned into a staple at restaurants across the world. Kothu literally means chopped, and like most street food, Kothu Roti is an unsightly dish of shredded roti, vegetables, egg and meat. It’s bursting with flavours and is cooked on a large flat tawa — similar to the ones used to make Pav Bhaji and Dosas on the streets of India.
A 16th-century recipe, the Lamprais owes its existence to Dutch Burghers — a group of Europeans who settled in Sri Lanka. To put it simply, Lamprais is savoury rice and meat cooked in banana leaves, but it involves complex assembling of flavours and dishes for the Lamprais to come together. It is served with Vambatu Moju (brinjal pickle) Seeni Sambol (made of caramelized onions and fish flakes), and deep-fried meat balls known as Frikkadels.
A coconut custard, the Watalappan is usually served with seasonal fruits. At the pop-up, it will be served with curd, Kithul or palm treacle, strawberry wine jam and spiced walnuts.
The pop-up will be held on 7 February from 12.45pm-3.45pm at Road House Bluez.

In his return to primetime TV, anchoring MSNBC’s Iowa caucuses coverage, the former “NBC Nightly News” anchor had to apologize after a young, impassioned Iowa voter yelled on-camera that the Veterans Administration is “f—ed up.”
“We apologize,” Williams said on behalf of himself, MSNBC and reporter Jacob Soboroff, who was in a gym watching the exchange between the woman and Sanders supporters who were trying to get her to join them.
The Sanders supporters stressed that their candidate would help veterans, to which the woman said she was a veteran, with many veterans in her family, and used the F-word to describe the agency’s failures.
“The VA is more screwed up than it has been in a while. The fact that I haven’t gotten benefits in three months is because the VA is so f—ed up,” she said, before the network cut her off.
Williams returned to television last September after a six-month suspension for exaggerating details from various situations throughout his career. The scandal broke when Williams claimed a chopper he was riding in got hit by an RPG during the early days of the Iraq War.
A massive gathering broke into celebrations outside the BJP headquarters on Sunday morning with party president Amit Shah filing his nominations seeking re-election at the top post. Shah’s current tenure ended on Saturday and the new term would be his first full-term lasting three years.
Bernie Sanders Takes Hillary Clinton to Task on Climate Change
After enduring weeks of attacks over his electability, his gun control record and his ambitions for a single-payer health care system, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is now on the offensive, charging that fellow Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has failed to fill in many blanks when it comes to combating climate change.
The Sanders campaign fired the opening salvo on Wednesday, the same day NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that 2015 was the hottest year on record, surpassing the record set in 2014.
The attack: "With only 12 days to go before the Iowa caucuses, however, it remains unclear whether Hillary Clinton will tell voters what she would do to address climate change,“ Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said in a statement. "In July, a post on her campaign website promised a ‘comprehensive energy and climate’ plan 'in the coming months.’ It’s now six months later. What’s taking so long?”
Briggs suggested that this fit a larger pattern with Clinton, noting that “[i]t took the former secretary of state four years to take a stand on the Keystone pipeline, which would carry some of the dirtiest oil on the planet across the United States.”
The Clinton campaign aggressively fired back Wednesday evening, when campaign chairman John Podesta published a post on Medium outlining Clinton’s climate agenda. “Today, the Sanders campaign asked where our climate plan was. I guess they didn’t look too hard,” he wrote.
Podesta ticked off a laundry list of Clinton’s proposals, including installing 500 million solar panels across the nation by 2020, incentivizing states and localities to develop clean energy plans, upgrading the nation’s energy infrastructure and defending the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan. Moreover, Podesta noted, Clinton (after much delay) came out against construction of the Keystone pipeline, which would have transported tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and his criticized oil drilling in the Arctic and Atlantic.
Not impressed: That hardly satisfied the Sanders campaign. In a tweet Thursday morning, the campaign pointed to a number of outstanding questions about Clinton’s climate agenda, including whether she’d back a tax on carbon emissions, ban fossil fuel extraction on public lands and oppose fracking:
Thanks, @johnpodesta. Appreciate the effort, but you didn’t answer our questions! Here’s the list. #ActOnClimate pic.twitter.com/mAXjiYmxJZ
Advocates for action to tackle climate change have voiced similar concerns. In July, the Washington Post editorial board expressed disappointment that Clinton hadn’t endorsed a carbon tax, arguing that such a tax would “forc[e] emitters to pay for the dangerous damage they do to the environment” and incentivize the use of cleaner energy forms. A wide range of economists, including conservative N. Gregory Mankiw, believe that a carbon tax is the most efficient approach to moving away from fossil fuels; Sanders’ climate plan includes a tax on carbon.
Moreover, Clinton’s environmental record at the State Department has given some climate activists pause. A Mother Jones investigation in 2014 documented Clinton’s role in championing fracking for shale gas in countries around the world. During her State tenure, Clinton also suggested she’d support construction of the Keystone pipeline, which she new opposes.

How it plays: Though Sanders aims to tap into lingering progressive unease about Clinton with his climate offensive, Clinton hardly lacks support in the environmental community. She secured the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters in October, and billionaire green activist Tom Steyer hosted a fundraiser for Clinton last year.
“We believe that she has the skills, the experience and the passion for addressing climate change and other environmental issues over many years, from her experiences in the White House as First Lady, as a senator, as secretary of state,” Tiernan Sittenfeld, senior vice president for government affairs at LCV, told Mic in a recent interview. Clinton, Sittenfeld said, would be able to “hit the ground running on Day One.”
There may be at least one large crack forming in Clinton’s green support, though. Despite raising funds for her campaign last year, the San Francisco-based Steyer sounds increasingly noncommittal about Clinton’s bid. In an interview withReuters published Wednesday, he said he wasn’t ready to formally endorse her campaign, citing concerns that her climate agenda isn’t detailed enough.
“I don’t think she’s fully fleshed out everything she has to say about energy and climate,” Steyer told Reuters. “I think that as the campaign goes on I would imagine she will put out more detailed plans of exactly what she thinks. I don’t find what she’s said inadequate, but I don’t think it’s complete yet.”
Siachen avalanche: Body of one of 10 soldiers recovered, rescue operations still on
ARMY troops on Monday recovered the body of a soldier who was among the ten buried alive under snow after their post was hit by an avalanche at Siachen on Wednesday, February 2.
“After intense and exhausting search operations which have entered the sixth day, the rescue parties have hit the camp site and recovered the mortal remains of one martyr,” said an Udhampur based Defence Ministry spokesperson Colonel S D Goswami.
Pointing out that rescue efforts will continue till all the bodies of the soldiers are found. He said that a new camp has been established at the location to coordinate the rescue efforts and kep a vigil in the sensitive area.
The rescue teams are cutting through up to 40 feet of ice at multiple locations where soldiers could be buried, he said, adding that probable locations have been identified by using specialised equipment which was inducted along with the rescue teams.
“Reports from the ground indicate the efforts are hampered by frequent snow blizzards, extreme freezing temperatures and low visibility apart from the effects of rarefied atmosphere in such high altitude,” the spokesperson said, adding that the teams are working round the clock and observing all precautions since the unstable ice and snow in the region could trigger fresh avalanches.
Ten soldiers deployed at a post on Siachen were hit by a massive avalanche on February 2. As the rescue operation entered the second day, the Army hinted at their being dead saying that “chances of finding any survivors are very remote” as the glaciated area’s temperature ranged from a minimum of minus 42 degree Celsius during night to maximum of minus 25 degrees celcius during the day
