Summary: It's a khichdi out there. Rising food prices, colossal wastage of stocks, compromised policies on food security, mixed with conversations on excess, debates on dieting, programmes and journalism on cuisines and cooking. And in the midst of it all, not completely insulated nor completely embedded, is our own kitchen - the place we discover 'our' foods and ways, where indeed, our taste buds learn to flower to the familiar. But is this precisely where we also cook up what is not ours, slicing the line between edible and inedible, desired and untouchable? These are some of the delightful (and not so delightful questions) that the Film stirs up as it talks about food, memory, nostalgia, belonging, family, community, nation, alienation, desire and disgust, politics, prejudice and power... just some of the many things that food is, and signifies, to all of us.
