Dilli Ka Khana: Aloo Tikki

Dilli Ka Khana: Aloo Tikki

Back in Delhi, when I was a little girl, there used to be a tikki, chaat and golgappa  vendor who would pass by our street every evening. The distinct sounds of ‘tun-tun’ that the steel ladle made as it hit the iron tawa and the sizzling and sputtering of the golden fried crispy potato patties […]






Dilli Ka Khana : Matar Kulcha

Dilli Ka Khana : Matar Kulcha

  Matar aur Kulcha, a spicy and tangy street food of Delhi evokes a lot of strong  memories. We used to wait for the local Matar Kulcha vendor’s cycle cart and his distinct bell. The matar gravy would cook slowly in a brass pot or ‘pateeli’ over a coal angeethi. The air would be filled […]






Dilli Ka Khana: Stuffed Capsicum

Dilli Ka Khana: Stuffed Capsicum

Delhi is where I was born and raised and it still tugs at my heart with all the memories of my mother’s redolent, welcoming kitchen. My mother’s cooking was simple and honest and yet on  certain occasions, she prepared rare delicacies  that were both complex and beguiling. The flavours of certain dishes have the ability to […]






Dilli Ka Khana: Shahi Paneer

Dilli Ka Khana: Shahi Paneer

Delhi is the receptacle of bold flavours and a myriad cuisines but it is the local food that is unlike anything you will find anywhere else. Dilli ka khaana is a special memory for all those who have grown up in Delhi and traversed its lanes to hunt for the best paranthas and chaats. In […]






The Mother Of Soul Food

The Mother Of Soul Food

Nisha Madhulika looks like the aunt whose kitchen was your favourite haunt during your holidays. Yes, the one who had a warm, kind manner and knew how to satiate your soul’s cravings with meals that you will not find in any restaurant just because no chef can cook the way she can. She is in […]






When A MasterChef Served Wisdom

When A MasterChef Served Wisdom

  George Calombaris is a diminutive man but you would never know it. He is someone who could always see the big picture and the story goes that when he was an apprentice, he used to work with a really tall chef. But George would be too busy running the ship to notice that. He […]

The Lasting Affair With Cookbooks

The Lasting Affair With Cookbooks

When I took leave of Patiala and my first job as an LKG teacher, I was given two Tarla Dalal books by my colleagues to accompany me to my new life in Bengaluru. This was in 1994 and Ms Dalal was possibly the only known name in the Indian publishing industry. The recipe booklet that […]






Eat Your Heart Out In North-Goa

Eat Your Heart Out In North-Goa

I was in Goa last weekend and I’m infused with susegado tinted peace. Yes, that much abused word when it comes to all things Goan. A number of people have messaged me asking for a list of recommendations for great eating joints. And being a vegetarian, I believe that if a place in Goa has […]






A Vegetarian In Thailand

A Vegetarian In Thailand

I am more apprehensive about being a vegetarian in South-East Asia than I am in Europe. Vegetarianism is not something the South-East Asians understand that well. Dried shrimp, a favourite topping, seems to fall under this rather flexible veggie umbrella. And then there is the ubiquitous fish sauce (and meat sauce) that forms part of […]






Food For The Soul

Food For The Soul

There is a scene in Bimal Roy’s Bandini where  Nutan’s Kalyani is described as Annapurna…the goddess of an abundant kitchen. She is half in love with a rebel (Ashok Kumar) who comes every evening to discuss lyrical poetry with her father and enjoys her cooking but it is when he describes her as a woman […]

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
