Passage

‘Agar Bar ruh-e-zameen ast, Hameen asto Hameen asto Hameen ast …’ are believed to be the words spoken by a poet in the courts of a Mughal ruler in 17th century. The State of Jammu and Kashmir is located in Northern India. One of the old publications on Kashmir called Nilmat Puraan mentions that this land was once a huge lake known as ‘Satisar’ , a lake named after the Goddess Sati, the wife of Lord Shiva. Kashmir has always been a centre of attraction for tourists. The valley of Kashmir is famous for its vegetables and fruits. Pears, cherries, peaches, apricots, almonds, walnuts and apples are available in abundance. Plums that are found in abundance locally are known as ‘alubukhara’ , water chestnuts as ‘Golu’ and a special variety of pomegranates known as ‘Kabuli Anar’ . In morning people enjoy a special beverage called as ‘Kehwa’ . In addition to this Kashmir has a rich cuisine.

Kashmiri cuisine is broadly divided into two parts. The Kashmiri Pandit cooking and the Muslim cooking, which is popularly known as ‘Wazwan’ . There can be eight to thirty six dishes prepared from mutton. Specific parts are used for specific preparations, e. g. , the neck for Rogan josh, ribs for tabak Maaz and Kabargah, the legs are used for dhaniwal and rishta. In Kashmir it is said that the food should not only taste good, but also look good. Its aroma must be appetizing. The success of a meal lies in its appeal to the eyes, nose and then tongue.
