When Timur invaded India in the fifteenth century, he unknowingly introduced to the country a cuisine that is perhaps unrivalled in the world – wazwaan. The elaborate preparation and ceremonial presentation of lavish meals, often comprising 36 courses, makes wazwaan a sumptuous and royal repast. Seven dishes typically form an indispensable part of the feast – tabakh maaz, rista, Rogan Josh, dhaniwal korma, Aab gosh, marchwagan korma and ghustaba. Firin and kahwah (Green tea) round off a never-to-be-forgotten culinary experience. For the first time ever, the exotic treasury of secret recipes from the renowned family of waza – The master chefs of Kashmir – are made available to all those who love the cuisine of the beautiful Valley.
