Dining With The Nawabs
Meera Ali, Karam Puri
Mughal emperors governed their vast empire with the help of nawabs a title they bestowed on semiautonomous Muslim rulers of princely India. Over a period of time these nawabs became powerful rulers in their own right and created a distinct culture of their own with food being one of its most everlasting legacies. Heavily influenced by Mughal staples and technique of cookery, the nawabs refined their cuisine by adopting local flavours from the refined palates that dominate the table at Rampur and Avadh to the incredible array of delicacies from the kitchens of Bahawalpur and Khairpur, now in Pakistan.
