Ep. 25: India's Widow Cuisine
Near the end of the 18th and final of her pregnancies, Hiranmayi Ghatak, became a widow. Her body had withstood a whirlwind of miscarriages and stillbirths, which resulted in a total of eight living children by the time she was 37. For the rest of her life, much like countless women before her, she was forced to live very frugally and eat minimally. This week, Utsav brings to the fore a cuisine which is celebrated as a culinary achievement but was borne out of sheer exploitation - India's Widow Cuisines.
