Though there are not as many varieties available for vegetarians in kebabs, but non – vegetarian have a plethora of mouth – melting kebabs. Kebabs are cooked with very gentle and mild flavors but are served with green coriander chutney and lemon wedges to add that tanginess to the taste buds.
With Hara Bhara Kebab and Paneer Kathi Kabab only for vegetarians, there is a vast variety offered to the non – vegetarians like Seekh Kebab, Afghani Seekh Kebab, Kakori Kebab, Chicken Seekh Kebab, Shami Kebab, but Galouti Kebab remains a hit among all the food lovers.

Recalling The Traditional Art Of Slow Cooking

Getting back to the olden days when the traditional method of slow cooking was practiced in the royal kitchens of the Nawabs of Awadh. The magic behind the deliciousness and mouthwatering delicacies of the Awadhi cuisine is the traditional art of slow cooking, known as Dum Pukht, where the dish is cooked until it matures completely.

Handi, around heavy bottomed utensil was normally used and it was made a point to seal the utensil with a dough known as purdah or veil so as the moisture and flavors are retained in the dish. The reason behind the style of slow cooking is roasting and proper maturing of the prepared dish and sustains the flavors and aroma.

The two most relished dishes made by this fragile technique of slow cooking are Dal Makhani and Dum Biryani. These dishes are cooked for hours and hours to get the best results.

Rashmi Kuchhal narrated the story because of which she stands here. “For a moment, I was pushed back 34 years when Shashi & I started Handi. The years flashed by in a series of pictures of dreams, happiness, sacrifice, pain, love, anguish and joy.
Today, I have received this award for my father who taught me the true meaning of hospitality and my mother who guided me to be a businessperson first and the woman later.
My sons, daughters- in- laws, and friends; each one of you have been a part of this journey. The wonderful staff at Handi and my beloved precious customers of Handi – today each one of you stand by me.
I would not have reached here without the unflinching support and guidance of my dear friend Gurinder”.
