  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

The Cuisine of Jammu and Kashmir

The history of cuisines in Jammu and Kashmir has a manifold and interesting dynamics. For example, the Hindus in Jammu eat a vegetarian diet while the Muslims in the Kashmir Valley have several irresistible meat products in their cuisine. The Ladakhis, on the contrary, eat rice along with fruits and vegetables, as well as dairy products made of yak milk.
Thus, along with the spices, what makes the cuisine of Jammu and Kashmir really spectacular is the presence of multi-course means and salt teas, making it distinct from the cuisine of typically Indian families.

Following are few of the important dishes of the cuisines of Jammu and Kashmir

The combination of hot spices in the red onion gravy along with finely cut pieces of meat makes it a favourite. This lamb meat dish is definitely a favourite of many and is used for having the typical feel of the Kashmiri cuisine. The red colour of the dish is obtained from maval, which is a dried flower from the plant of cockscomb.

One can taste the tinges of saffron, cinnamon and turmeric in its preparation. These are typically known as Kashmiri lamb chops. The fennel, spices and moval essence of the front ribs of the fatty goat makes it even more tempting.


The saffron gravy is made of chilli and onions, with the small lamb dumplings poached in turmeric water. It is a traditional dish and cooked during auspicious festivals.
Also, the Kashmiri cuisine has evolved over the ages. One can spot the cooking styles of Afghanistan, Iran and Central Asia in it. The extensive use of turmeric and yoghurt makes it even more special.  Quite interestingly, garlic and onion are not used much in the Kashmiri cuisines.

The traditional Kashmiri dish includes wazwan which is a multi-course meal. The head chef, locally called as Vasta Waza has the entire responsibility of preparing the meal, which is a collection of 36 dishes.
