A food writer who wrote recipes for Indian food restaurants and served tea at their events has died.
Ranjit Kaur, who was known for his love of cooking and a passion for tea, died on Friday at the age of 55, his family told The Times of India.
Rajiv Kaur was born in Jharkhand in 1929 and began writing recipes for food and tea restaurants after moving to New York in 1970.
He died of cancer on Thursday, his son Rahul said.
Rishi Kaur’s son said the family was “heartbroken”.
He said Ranjit Kajaur, a self-taught cook, was known as “the best Indian food journalist”.
“He was a very good cook, a very loyal person, always a little bit more than his word,” Rahul said, adding that the restaurant owner was also a good man.
Ramanand Kaur said her father was a “great person” who “worked hard”.
Ranjan Kaur passed away in his sleep on Thursday at his home in New Delhi’s southern suburbs.
His wife, Rajita, was with him at the time.
