For 26 years I have been doing what I want to. I know I have been lucky. I don't beat around the bush. Not too much into networking. Hate those who push connections over merit. Love traveling. Quality or Quantity still puzzle me at times. Haven't turned into anything other than being me, neither have an intent to. Prefer living in present or future, but a lifelong student of history. A father. A husband. A brother. A friend. A colleague. An Indian. A Sikh. A Punjabi And above all a Dilli-walah.

Keema Kaleji With Runny Yolks – Simply Yum!

Keema Kaleji is an all time favorite with goat meat / mutton eating Punjabis. It is not for calorie watchers by any yardstick. It has butter, it has milk, it has meat and it has eggs. When all of these do a meet-up in a pan, magic happens. Keema, of course is minced goat meat and Kaleji is the liver of goat, sounds gross but it is really about taste, right? Keema Kaleji needs patience and [...]

The Pavilion at Maurya

I can’t say I’ve childhood memories of ITC Maurya and its The Pavilion restaurant but, I can say my reminiscences go back 30 years or so. The Pavilion has changed many times over and it has expanded in terms of size from what it used to be way back in 1980s. For about three years or so I didn’t go to The Pavilion at all, it was kind of several bad experiences which led to [...]

Masala Library

We grew up hearing the name of Jiggs Kalra as India’s first celebrated gourmet who knew food as much or more than chefs in the finest of hotels he reviewed, tasted and advised.
