DoubleTree by Hilton Gurgaon New Delhi NCR is hosting “Phira Saal” – a celebration of traditional Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine at Asia Alive that takes diners on a theatrical culinary journey. Phira Saal is a post wedding Kashmiri Pandit ritual wherein the bride’s immediate family visits the groom’s home laden with gifts and are welcomed with a sumptuous feast.
Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine is an extensive spread that introduced the use of yogurt, asafoetida, and turmeric powder to Indian cuisine. Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine was traditionally cooked on Dhaan (Chulha) in a Deigh (Clay Mud Pot) without the use of Onion and Garlic and with heavy influence of dry ginger and fennel powder. The cuisine’s foundation lies in three exquisite gravies – Kaliya (Turmeric based); Yakhni (Yogurt based) and Roganjosh (Dried kashmiri red chilli powder based) which are used for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.
The Festival will commence from 26th August to 4th September 2022 and Food enthusiasts can sample this Culinary celebration over curated Thalis for Lunch between 12:30pm-3:00pm or savor the rich flavors over dinner while indulging in an exhaustive buffet spread between 7:00pm -11:30 pm and in this endeavor the festival will offer delicacies like Mutton Yakhni, Mujj Gaad, Dum Oluv, Paneer Qaliya, Kahwa and desserts like Kong Kheer and Kong Phrini curated by Chef Rahul Wali and Home Chef Sunil Mattoo in an ambience that will be reminiscent of the beautiful landscape of the Kashmir Valley.
“My team and I are super thrilled to serve you the traditional Kashmiri Cuisine and take you through this coveted culinary journey” said Chef Rahul Wali.
Apart from resident guests of the hotel, this authentic celebration of an exhaustive and universally loved cuisine will attract food connoisseurs not just from premium residential & commercial establishments of Gurgaon but all over NCR.
