Nimmatnama-i Nasiruddin-Shahi (the Book of Recipes), also called Nimat Nama.
- Ghiyas-ud-din Khalji, the Sultan of Mandu (ruled 1469-1500), was a sybarite who cut himself off from the cares of state to amuse himself with food, drink and innumerable women. By this period, north India had a fairly unified painting style from the combination of two sources, Hindu-Jaina and Persian. The convention was to depict Indians in full profile and non-Indians with three-quarter profile.
- Nimmatnamah, written in Persian, appears to have been filled with delicacies and aphrodisiacs for Ghiyas-ud-din's benefit but completed in the reign of his son Nasir-ud-din Shah.
