About these recipes

We aim to preserve the memories of how food was cooked in the past in India, by which we mean at least 40 years ago, though the recipes may still be in use. The recipes are family specialties or favourites.

We know that most Indians cooked by approximate measurements, and not by precise recipes. So, some of the recipes here may not be easily reproducible.

Before the recipe, we have a short description about the cook plus comments identifying the dish with a particular region, community, special role it had in the family, or any other comments/description that has a special meaning.

Please send us your recipes and comments to indiaofthepast.com.
