Summary "Khabaar is a food memoir/narrative braiding global journeys of South Asian food through immigration, migration and indenture focusing on chefs, home cooks, and food stall owners asking the simple question of what it means to belong, and what does belonging in a new place look like in the foods carried over from the old country. This question is braided into the author's own immigration journey as a daughter of refugees to America, as a woman of color in science, a woman who left an abusive marriage and a woman who keeps her parents' memory alive through her Bengali food"-- Provided by publisher
