She was preparing the idli, a mix of rice and curd mold very fine and fermenting the whole night, to be steemed in a idli-cooker the next day.
This is one of the most healthy food, not spicy at all, a delight at breakfast for difficalt stomachs.
The idli-cooker is like a steampot where at the bottom, water is cooked and on top some plates with oval shapes the molded rice is put on a cotton cloth and the whole pot sealed of with a plate to steam.

This lady was really hided in a corner of the streat and the first thing I noticed was her matching colors of her sari to the abstract wallpainting like the painter had finished off the last paints that was left over.

other sizes: small medium original
