Kashmiri Cuisine: Through The Ages
Kashmiri cuisine is one of the most delectable and ancient cuisines in the world because of the many foreign
influences. People are still a trifle inhibited about cooking it, because, like any delicacy, it demands a delicate sense
of the instinct after you have measured ingredients by the spoon or the ladle. But Sarla Razdans book will chip
away the inhibitions and introduce you to a world that cannot be described at the inadequate level of mere words.
Kashmiri Cuisine: Through the Ages is not just a cookbook but also showcases the splendour of Kashmir
through beautiful vintage and new photographs bringing alive the history and culture of the place. A collection
of authentic, comprehensive and easy-to-make recipes, popular within the Kashmiri community, makes this book
indispensable to all lovers of good food. A section on low-calorie Kashmiri food is a treat for the health conscious!
