Local IDIA Chapters have been set up across the country which have started an intensive training programme for students who are interested in pursuing law as a career. IDIA also selects students for the training program through its exam called IDIA National Aptitude Test which is held every year in several centres across the country. Contact Diptoshree Basu (INAT Coordinator) at email@example.com to find out how you can contribute, that is through donations, volunteering or maybe even mentoring some of the students that IDIA is trying to help.
I thought an appropriate pairing for the inspiring work being done by IDIA was this nourishing but simple Pea Soup – they’re both good for you and good for your soul.
Recipe Adapted from 101 Cookbooks
What you’ll need:
1 cup shelled peas
2 onions (sliced)
2.5 cups vegetable stock
Foodnote: I usually melt Maggi cubes into hot water for this but I’ve heard they may contain MSG. Explore other brands of stock cubes to find one you like.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 lemon (juiced)
Red chilli powder to taste
Oregano/Thyme/ Rosemary/ Parsley or whatever seasoning you prefer
1. Pop olive oil into the container you’ll be using. Heat the oil a bit and then add the onions, stir while they soften and caramelize.
2. Add the peas and stir till soft. Add the stock and the rest of the ingredients (except the lemon juice) and let cook for about 15 – 20 mins.
3. Puree the mix and check the seasoning. Adjust as per taste.
4. Add a squirt or two of lemon juice and serve.
