What an astonishing book !! Superbly chronicled, it makes the 'gali-koochas' of old Delhi come alive, makes you feel as if you are in the midst of typical old Delhi chaos and leaves you salivating, not only for the astonishing foods that only old Delhi can offer but also for more reminisces from the author. And it almost makes you hang your head in shame at not having trudged through the 'gali-koochas' till now.

This was a lovely weekend read. I wish it was longer! I avidly read Pamela's articles in the Mint Lounge so I was keen to read her first book. Engaging and informative, anyone who is interested in food, especially Delhi food and culture, will love it.

For those of us migrants currently living in "New" Delhi, it pulls down the shutters for the neighborhood we try to ignore into nonexistence each day. For those who call Delhi their home it will bring a sharp pang of homesickness. Nevertheless, an immensely well-written chronicle which any foodie would cherish. Simple, honest language drives home the high emotions that food in India is about. Highly recommend!
Only problem I faced while reading the book was the spontaneous drooling triggered by the deliciousness described :P

Loved the food (tried the recipes myself and while they're not as good as the delhi street food, they're awesome). Loved the vignettes of old delhi culture even more, Pamela Timms needs to follow her tastebuds all over India and the world. Every cuisine and street food there is could do with someone of her awesome cooking talent, sense of humor and empathy for the people she writes about.

Well written. I would have rated it 5 stars had it more pages of the drool worthy descriptions of food in it. The recipes are fairly simple to read through, although I have yet to try them out. Highly recommended!!

I purchased this book with some misgivings, to be vey frank. Here is yet another "firang" giving her two bits worth about Indian food, I thought dismissively. So, i first downloaded a sample, and on Christmas Day, while my wife was busy preparing a lunch of Mutton Rogan Josh for me, I started on the sample. Before lunch was served, I had purchased the book, and was well into the intricacies of Ashok and Ashok's Mutton Korma recipe ! Pamela writes with a sure touch about the a subject she obviously loves to a fault - good food. Her writing is witty and sincere, and she brings a Westerner's eye for detail into her recioes. And her descriptions of the bylanes of Old Delhi are charming and so evocative, that you can actually feek you are there with her as she dashes off on a cold winter dawn in search of the elusive Daulat ki Chaat, or understanding the mysteries behind Bade Mian's creamy Kheer, or the simple delights of a coal roasted shakharkandi. Her accounts of life around the dusty alleys of Jama Masjid, or the cubby holes in and around Chandni Chowk, reveal a gourmand's true love for food belonging to a bye gone era. The book is a must read for lovers of Delhi street food at its best.
