Kashmiri cuisine has evolved over hundreds of years. The first major influence was the food of the Kashmiri Pandits, the Hindus of the valley which uses a lot of yogurt, oils and spices as such turmeric, but avoids onion, garlic, tomatoes, and chicken. The most notable ingredient in Kashmir cuisine is mutton, of which there are over 30 varieties. Have a look at variety of Kashmiri food recipes at Estel's Kitchen. live 2 eat!
