Join artist Jasleen Kaur and members of the Gravesend’s Saheli Women's Group online, as they cook Aloo Paronthey in their own kitchens, and discuss questions of community, assimilation, resistance, and the importance of song and dance, and food.
If you have the ingredients below ready, you can join in and cook Aloo Paronthey alongside us, and informal instructions will be given over the course of the event.

5 boiled potatoes
For the Filling:
Fresh Methi (fenugreek)

Jasleen’s work, The first thing I did was to kiss the ground, consists of a sculpture and sound work sited on Gravesend Town Pier and pontoon and is a co-commission with England’s Creative Coast – seven new site-specific artworks along the South East coast. The work will remain on display until 12 November 2021.
