Living as we do in a multi-cultural world, nowhere are the pleasures that it brings more obvious than at the table, when we enjoy a feast of complex flavors and s9imple preparations.
The book in your hands exactly does that. It tells you about the tasty and aromatic cuisines of Kashmir, the northernmost State of India, famous for its incredible range of culinary delights, guaranteeing a veritable experience to the gourmet. It also gives alternatives to deep frying of some of the recipes.
The preparation of Kashmiri food in an efficient, healthy way can be so much fun. It would hardly take you 10 to 25 minutes to cook a delicious meal, whose tempting, hot, spicy taste lends it a peculiar quality of its own and distinguishes it from the culinary arts of rest of India and the world at large.
In addition, the book delineates not only the health benefits of foods we eat every day but also provides the religious and cultural significance associated with the traditional Hindu style Kashmiri food.
Lawyer by profession, Chandramukhi Ganju moved to the United States in the year 1993 and has been living in Florida ever since. Since she spent a good part of her life in Kashmir, her deep interest in Kashmiri culture, language or cuisine, developed with the passage of time. With her deep rooted interest in spirituality, she is of the firm opinion that the food we eat has a long lasting influence on our thoughts.
Of late, she has also taken up writing plays in Kashmiri language, highlighting the decline of Kashmiri language and cuisine with a view to reviving the interest of the young and the old i9n the rich Kashmiri language.
She fondly hopes, her present work will revive the taste buds of younger generation and introduce Hindu style Kashmiri cuisine to a wider section of people.
