The smells have wafted across grandma’s kitchen and the years alike,
warm and luring, always so reassuring…
They were just the same when mama attempted it years later,
one hand on the ladle, one on the opened diary, lest she miss a step…
Today these smells lie forgotten between the pages,
waiting to be chanced upon… waiting to take form, to be sampled, yet again…
It’s time to revisit Ma’s old chest in the attic, dig out these forgotten recipes, and share them with the world!
a) Pick your one favorite Recipe that has been passed down in your family, over the generations. Share it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
b) If you also happen to have a handwritten copy of it, we’d love for you to send us a high-resolution image (and don’t worry if it’s in another language!)
The best recipes get collated into a collection, that will get launched as ‘Forgotten Indian Recipes: A Collection of Regional Recipes Passed Down the Generations’. Each of the chosen entries also win a special gift.
PS: Don’t fret over stains and tears, the more there are, the better!
