Indian Food Magazines

Barbara of Tigers and Strawberries is doing a project on food magazines of the US and the world. She is asking for opinions, like which food magazines you subscribe, why and which ones you hate etc., She is also interested to know about Indian food magazines. That got me curious about our food magazines.

The only ones that I am aware of are Upper Crust and Tarladalal. There is not one food magazine in Telugu, that I know for sure. Do you know any other Indian food magazines in English or in your language? I would really appreciate your input in this matter. Thanks

For more discussion about food magazines, visit Barbara’s food blog.

  1. AFAIK, there is no magazine exclusively for food. However in Indian languages, there are several women’s magazines that regularly devote some pages/sections on food. Afterwards they usually publish the collection of these sections as seperate books.
    for example,

  2. Hi Indira,

    As far as I’m aware, there aren’t any “Foodd Mags” per se in India, it’s mainly women’s magazines with a food section in it. I used to enjoy Women’s Era since they used to have cookery specials in every issue.

  3. India Today’s Travel Plus carries recipes too - sometimes the cuisine of the country that is featured in the magazine.

  5. Indira -

    Besides Upper Crust and Tarla Dalal, there is also the Savvy Cookbook magazine (see here for description: http://wqn.tolshop.com/gifts-to-india/gifts-M12.html). I have recently found out about two food magazines in Marathi - Annapoorna and Ruchi Palate. My sister has purchased the Diwali special issues for me this year; I’ll send you more information once I get my hands on them.

  6. Indira - here is a picture of the 2001 Diwali special issue of the Annapoorna magazine: http://www.rasik.com/database/marathi/books/b0121/cover_2001.jpg.

    They publish ‘regular’ issues as well, but I don’t know the frequency.

  7. Thank you all for responding.

    Veena.. thanks so much for the links and the information. I am going to enquire about Savvy magazine with my friends in India.
    I wish someone would take photos of Annapoorna and Ruchi Palate and publish on flickr or some other Indian food forums. I would love to see what they are writing and how the recipes turn out when tried.
