Kashmir food
tips and insights


Unlike most of the rest of India, Kashmiri dishes are overwhelmingly meat based.


Rice is far more popular than bread, which is a notable exception to India's "bread in the north" convention.

Other popular ingredients

Nuts and dried fruits are also widely used, as are spices such as chili, clove, cardamom and saffron. The last is frequently employed by cooks, especially for pilaf-style rice dishes and sweet desserts.

Dairy products

Curds and other dairy ingredients are often used in Kashmiri recipes for their creamy, tenderizing attributes.

Culinary styles

The two major cooking styles in Kashmir are Moslem and Pundit (Hindi). The former has the greatest impact because Kashmir is largely Moslem.
