Its mainly used in South Indian cooking and Sri Lankan cooking. Then the Dhal fry. Its going to be a bit dry. Not with gravy. Anyway we are going to cook rice.
What is Theertha?
Theertha is an autonomous, artist-led non-profit initiative based in Colombo. Theertha has undertaken considerable amount of art activities since its inception in 2000. First, started by 11 visual artists to facilitate international art exchange through international artist workshops in Sri Lanka, it has expanded its activities to include art education, publications on art/culture, heritage management through art and international residencies.
