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.
