Arrowroot, a modern food in the metropole traveled from Brazil to Britain and had the potential to be introduced in India. However, herein lay a mistake. This mistake was the lapse in colonial knowledge-system to grasp the entire information about the colony. It was soon figured out that manioc or cassava could not be grown in the soils of Bengal and rice proved to be a much more potent crop, at least in Gangetic Bengal. 49 Ibid. 51 Hence, it could not be a good substitute for rice. 52 A similarity can be found in this context with British experimentation with cinchona in the Nilgiri Hills in southern India.
For a detailed discussion of the changes in social space within the domestic space, see Rosinka Chaudhuri, Freedom and Beef Steaks: Colonial Calcutta Culture (New Delhi: Orient Blackswan, 2012).

These documents are useful in understanding the colonial state’s interpretation of a ‘rational’ agriculture. These documents, along with other official documents on scarcity and famine, are also evidences of the staple diet of the general population in colonial Bengal. Among the non-official records, proceedings of the Agri-Horticultural Society of India corroborate my thesis about the colonial state’s attempts to introduce British fruits and vegetables in the Indian soil and their failures. Advisory tracts on gardening written by the middle-class, published tracts on agriculture of the colonial state as well as the proceedings and reports of the Municipal Department on new restaurants and eateries that I have used are all instances of changes in the gastronomic culture of the colonial middle-class.
