The Great Indian Kitchen

Indian kitchens are sacred places. The warm fragrance of home-cooked meals transforms a house into a home. Just as our country evolved, imbibing the best traits of modernity while carefully preserving and nurturing its cultural roots, so did our kitchens. From the hearths of ancient and medieval times to the granite-topped modular kitchens, the Indian kitchen has gone through a sea of change in its structure and character. From the archaic belief of kitchens being seen as the sole preserve of women to more and more men being equal partners in the ritual of meal-making, our kitchens have come a long way.

Our kitchens have always stood for more than just the utilitarian purpose of food preparation that they serve. They are places of kinship, community, and camaraderie. These are places where age-old family recipes and tales get passed down through generations, that bear witness to familial joys and woes alike, and describe its occupants in more detail than any other part of our homes.

Through the decades, there have been stages of family meals being served on the kitchen floor, followed by the modern addition of dining tables, which pushed the meal area outside of the kitchen itself. However, in neo-modern homes, more and more kitchens come with islands that serve the purpose of meal preparation and consumption alike. Kitchens are back to being places where families sit down together to have their meals together after a long day of going about their respective business. It is for this particular reason that present-day kitchens demand not only functionality but inhabitability.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Cooking

Meal preparation in Indian households is an especially elaborate process that requires the use of a multitude of grains, oils, and spices. As delicious as the final culinary outcome is, the kitchen stands the risk of becoming perpetually grease-stained in the process, causing physical discomfort not only in the kitchen itself but also throughout the house with the proliferation of unpleasant smells and harmful air particles.

While technological advancement has definitely aided the process of keeping the kitchen clean and sanitary, it continues to remain a tedious task solely because of the nature of Indian cooking and the wide variety of raw materials being used. It is often the practice to tend to the cleaning after the cooking, which, not only ends up making the process of cooking akin to hard physical labour but also transforms a preferentially communal exercise into a necessarily solitary one. No one wants to remain confined in a kitchen where irritable fumes burn your eyes and make you cough.
