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.

India is a vast country with a diverse culture and varied cuisine.  Among its plethora of cuisines, there’s something about Punjabi food that makes us all drool over it. Speaking of delectable and aromatic Punjabi cuisine, there is one vegetarian dish which is absolutely mouthwatering – Pindi Chana.

Straight out of the heart of Punjab, Pindi Chana’ is a popular variation of the versatile chole. It is different from the regular preparation in terms of color as well as texture.The Chole Masala is coated with gravy, whereas pindi chana is dry. Its dark color is the result of tea leaves. The leaves are added while cooking the chickpeas that give the dish a rich & earthy color and unique flavor.  Pindi Chana got its name after the town where it originated – Rawalpindi ( Pakistan) – in the days before the India-Pakistan partition.

Full of proteins, Pindi chana tastes great with naan, bhatura and kulche. Try it and enjoy a much-needed break from the regular Chana Masala. Located on M.I. road and Vaishali Nagar, Handi restaurant is an amazing place to go for authentic ‘Pindi Chana’. The ambiance is relaxing and the service is prompt.
