  • Description

    Khorma Kheer & Kismet: Five Seasons in Old Delhi, compiled by Pamela Timms, is a food memoir that will make extraordinary and exotic food of Old Delhi come to rich and mouth-watering life.

    Summary of the Book

    Pamela Timms finds her inspiration when the disorderly, not-so-grand and yet honest gullies of the old city, Delhi, offer her a sweet escape into the world of aroma and vibrant flavours. Numerous explorations change her perceptions about cooking and food forever, and she embarks on a journey to explore the stories and the undisclosed ingredients of the much-loved street food of Old Delhi. She discloses the anonymities surrounding several recipes. This journey takes Pamela straight to the heart of the city, where she is not only opened up to new ways of cooking and creating brilliant taste, but is also welcomed into the lives of people who are in this noble business. She rejoices festivals with them, gets acquainted with their families, finds recipes for some of the best Khorma, Kheer and beyond, and makes treasured friends, soon to gather that Old Delhi has become no less than a home.

    About Pamela Timms

    Pamela Timms is a well-known Scottish journalist. She left the cold, damp homeland with her family to begin a journey of a lifetime towards Delhi. But within a short period of time, she was frustrated, realizing that she was still far from the real India she was set out to discover. It took a while for the journalist to realize that Old Delhi was perhaps her home away from home, on which she has written about in Khorma Kheer & Kismet. Pamela has also penned works for a wide range of publications. She archives her Indian food explorations on her blog. A prolific writer, she is also a columnist for Mint.
