Delicacy from the Kashmir Valley
Jai Ho’s head chef Sunita Abbott born and raised in this region specializes in Kashmiri dishes. Kashmir being called ‘Heaven of Earth’ by the kings is definitely a true statement when you visit Kashmir. However, the only thing more magnificent than the hills, mountains and the valley is – yes your right – the food. Kashmir happens to be heavenly not only in terms of its scenery but also in it’s wide variety of culinary items. Kashmiri food is mild in taste and rich in flavor with high use of hot spices like cardamom, fennel, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and saffron, Kashmiri chillies and yogurt. Influenced by the Mughals, Kashmiri cuisine is predominantly non-vegetarian, with mutton, chicken or fish used as prime ingredients but there are few delicacies for vegetarians too!
