Whenever i think about Kashmir – two things that instantly come to my mind is the beautiful valley and meat :).
The beautiful state of Kashmir is not only famous for its beauty and serenity but also for non-vegetarian dishes too. Influenced by mughals, Kashmiri cuisine is predominantly non-vegetarian, with mutton, chicken or fish as the main ingredients. This cuisine also has great vegetarian delicacies too! The staple food of Kashmir is rice, but meats are very important in every meal.
Kashmiri Cuisine is one of the most cherished cuisines in India. The most important ingredient of Kashmiri cuisine is Meat. It is said that they use more than 30 varieties. Serving meat in a meal is considered to be a sign of hospitality. This cuisine uses ingredients available in Kashmir like haq, gucchi, saffron, Kashmiri chilli powder, fennel seeds powder that gives the dishes an exotic aroma and the long simmering over low flame enhancing the flavours of the dishes.

The tabak maz was crisp and flaky, shallow fried – The way Kashmiri muslims cook the meat. Dal cooked with nadru was the first time I tried and loved. Haaq, brinjal with tamarind and nadru yakhni were absolutely delicious. Their version of dum aloo was made of small potatoes with skin and less gravy that tasted amazingly good.
Korma and rogan josh were very good too. Alubukhara korma was something which I liked more because of it’s not so usual taste.
We finished our meal with delicious phirini.
If you love Kashmiri food, you shouldn’t miss this festival.
