Pallavi began as an environment journalist and has written extensively on ecological issues in India over two decades, which also includes numerous articles on Indigenous food. Her work has been featured extensively in two books published by Centre for Science and Environment — her former employer and a premier organisation for environmental study and research in India — on indigenous food, entitled First Food: A Taste of India’s Biodiversity and First Food: Culture of Taste

 

In 2006, she was the recipient of the National Foundation for India Fellowship for studying the female angle of farmer suicides in India  and the Women’s Feature Service-Care Fellowship for studying the world of women change makers in the area of agriculture.

Pallavi is currently drawing up a plan of action for reviving Mahua as a food in India, which she hopes to start working on in the coming Mahua season in March 2021. She is currently based out of Auroville town in Pondicherry, India.
