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”.

Barbecuing Or Grilling: What’s the Difference?

Barbequing Or Grilling: What’s the Difference
You would agree that nothing comes close to hot and delicious barbeque meat on a cold winter night. But do you know the difference between the two – Barbecuing & Grilling? Some people tend to confuse barbecuing with grilling.  Though both are a method and apparatus for cooking meat, they share a difference in their cooking time and the type of heat used.

The term “grilling” refers to cooking food over a direct flame. On the other hand, uses indirect heat or low-level heat to cook foods – usually meats. Grilling cooks meat relatively quickly as the direct heat is imparted to the food by a charcoal fire. On the other hand, barbeque is a much slower method of cooking meat. In the barbeque, the heat is indirectly imparted to the meat by cooking and smoking the meat over charcoal or wood.

You can say, barbecuing is generally done “low & slow” and grilling is usually “hot & fast”. Barbeque is usually done in outdoor spaces. For restaurants, special metal ovens are designed for that purpose. Some restaurants manage to cook the meat in large brick.
