A Traditional Hearth

Serving up food for the tummy as well aa the soul! 

It is the place where the whole family congregates over aclong breakfast of “khambheer” – hot thick rotis made on a stone pan and salty butter tea – chatting listening to the radio news and exchanging family news before everone sets out for work.
