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.

A Tale of Silky Smooth Shami Kebab

If you want to give your palate a break then try delicious, tempting and succulent Shami kebab at Handi Restaurant, Jaipur. Satisfaction is guaranteed!

shami kebab

There is quite a funny story behind the origin of the Shami Kebab, a minced meat kebab that literally melts in your mouth. It’s said that a chef invented this silky smooth kebab during the Mughal era – for a toothless Nawab of Lucknow. The Nawab was so fat from overindulgence that he couldn’t get on a horse, and his teeth were all gone, presumably for the same reason. So a kebab was made so fine that it required no teeth to eat it. Interesting right?

Well, we have no idea whether this story is true, but we do know that these delightful little appetizers are incredibly soft and smooth to please your taste-buds. It is made of minced mutton, chana dal and spices. The meat is ground and mixed with chickpeas, lentils or other fillers. A variety of spices are added. Among the many spices, cumin is a favorite as well as cardamom, usually ground from the larger whole seed. Other spices, like peppercorns, ginger, or even cinnamon are also included.

Shami Kebabs are a terrific evening snack, really drool worthy! We serve it with coriander chutney and raw onions, sprinkle with lemon juice. Visit us and give your evening a delightful twist.
