Last Sunday (23 September), Unicorn celebrated its 16th birthday and we were asked to take part and cook.
Harjinder, one of our wonderful Cracking Cooks, held three workshops outside making lentil tarka dhal with each group of eight making their own roti, finishing them off on the flame.
The wind was blowing but the rain held off, and even though our gazebo left the ground at one point, a fun and sociable day was had by all.
The tarka dhal was delicious and warmed everyone up - two huge pans were given away to customers and passers-by to taste, as well as the Unicorn’s delicious celebratory cupcakes. What a treat!
I am such a big fan of dhal - it is a quick and easy meal to make, full of healthy ingredients that can be made almost anywhere, and it’s so cheap to make!
Our three volunteers, pictured here with Harjinder, Cracking Good Food Director Adele and myself, were an incredible help - we couldn’t have done it without them.
