Serving Up Success

- / - / - / -

Having been forced to consume inferior and unpalatable grain for centuries, some downtrodden and marginalized women in Central India have, over generations, evolved a unique bread recipe. The bread is called Randani Roti. The robust flavor of this bread has won high acclaims. They now bake this bread through a women-led business that contributes to their economic prosperity.
However, wealthy local merchants are trying to gain a foothold into their business. But the women are steadily and successfully resisting them. How long can they keep up the fight?
