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.

Royal Delight of Rajasthan – Laal Maas

If Rajasthan is a state well known for its monumental forts and palaces, the vibrant desert – it’s cuisine is no less renowned. The ubiquitous ‘Laal Maas’ can make your nose water and get tears from the eyes.

Laal Maas

With the minimum ingredients available in the earlier times, the laal maas is cooked with red chillies and whole spicies, as tomatoes and other vegetables were not native to this land. Inspite of tomatoes, the secret ingredient used by the erstwhile people used to use kachri (a wild variety of cucumber grown in the desert).With the redolent flavor of cloves and other spices, garlic makes into a thick semi dry gravy for the dish.
