The Queen of Indian Cuisine: Kashmiri Cuisine

Indian Cuisine: Kashmiri Cuisine

India is a country with as many cuisines as there are the number of communities. To simplify things, the food in India has been divided into 2 categories i.e. North Indian & South Indian. There are various categories of cuisines in India. This is first of the articles based on Indian Cuisine that we are going to present to you in our blog. In this article, we will talk about Kashmiri Cuisine.

Kashmiri Cuisine has its roots in ancient Kashmiri. Meat was a traditional food as mentioned in the Rigveda. Nilamat Purana, an ancient epic of Kashmir tells about the traditions of meat eating in Kashmir. This habit of meat eating persists still today.

It is also popular in many parts of Pakistan. The most popular cuisine today is mutton which has over 30 variations. In the early days, Kashmiri cuisine was very much influenced by Kashmiri Pandits. The Pandits in other parts of the country don’t eat meat normally. The Pandits of Kashmir have eaten meat (except beef) throughout the history. Most of Kashmiri Muslims are converts from the Pandit community of Kashmir. So, they also don’t consume Beef. Some important Kashmiri dishes are:-

  • Qabargaah
  • Dum Olav
  • Gogji Raazma
  • Goshtaba
  • Lyodur Tschaman
  • Matschgand
  • Modur Pulaav
  • Monji Haak/Gogji Haak
  • Mujh Gaad
  • Nadir Yakhin
  • Shaem
  • Qeleeya
  • Rogan Josh
  • Syun Pulaav
  • Tsarvan
  • Tschok Wangan
  • Yakhni

Tea forms a very important Kashmiri Pandit cuisine. The two types of tea found mostly are Kahwa(sweet green tea) and Sheer Chai(Noon Chai). These teas are normally taken with baked breads like Katlam, Kulcha, Roth or Bakarkhani.

Wazwan
