Kashmir sticks to traditional cuisine this winter despite health advisory
A number of sun-dried vegetables such as tomatoes, turnip, brinjals, gourd, lotus fruits, green beans and red chillies are being sold in markets these winters.
Many Kashmiris store these vegetables and sun-dry them at their homes during summers to prepare for the harsh winters, as there is always fear of highway blockade due to snow and rainfall during which the prices of fresh vegetables go high.
Despite medicos warning issued against the use of dried vegetables and fish, people in Kashmir still prefer to relish the taste of this traditional food even when the fresh food is available round the year in the Valley. The aroma of the dishes made by using these sun-dried vegetables is amazingly magnificent.
