About The Author
Dr. Nikhat Mahboob is a multifaceted person with many interests. She is an accomplished Doctor of Naturopathy Sciences and has a Masters degree in History from Shimla University.

Mrs. Nikhat’s interest in cooking dates back to her first lessons from her mother. After marriage the interest only grew further as she traveled across India exploring newer flavors and incorporating them into her cuisine. This culminated into her first book Lazzat-e-Dastarkhan which was published in 2014. It contains a blend of recipes covering the taste from various geographies of India.
This website ‘Bhojpurirasoi’ is her endeavor to bring simple yet fond recipes from her mother’s kitchen and from all across Bihar, UP and Jharkhand to a global audience.
