PHIRA SAAL – Celebration of Traditional Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine Now at DoubleTree by Hilton Gurgaon New Delhi NCR

DoubleTree by Hilton Gurgaon New Delhi NCR is hosting “Phira Saal”, a traditional Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine celebration at Asia Alive, which takes diners on a theatrical culinary journey. Phira Saal is a post-wedding Kashmiri Pandit ritual in which the bride’s immediate family visits the groom’s home filled with gifts and is greeted with a sumptuous feast.

Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine is a wide spread that introduced the use of yogurt, asafoetida and turmeric powder to Indian cuisine. Kashmiri Pandit Cuisine was traditionally cooked in a Deigh (Clay Mud Pot) in Dhaan (Chulha) without the use of Onions and Garlic and with the intense effect of dry ginger and fennel powder. The basis of the cuisine lies in three delicious sauces – Kaliya (based on Turmeric); Yakhni (Yogurt based) and Roganjosh (Dried cashmere paprika powder based) used for both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes.

The Festival will start from 26th August to 4th September 2022 and Food enthusiasts can savor this Culinary celebration from 12:30am to 3pm over the curated Thalis for lunch or savor the rich flavors for dinner and until 7pm.
