Kashmiri Food:         Kashmiri meal and everyday cooking often combines vegetable and meat in the same dish. Mutton and turnips chicken and spinach, fish and lotus root are also very popular combinations. Pure vegetarian dishes include dum-aloo - roasted potatoes in curd-based gravy, and chaman- fried paneer (cottage cheese), in a thick sauce. Non-vegetarian dishes are considered in Kashmir to be a sign of lavish hospitality and at a Wazwan or banquet, not more than one or two vegetarian dishes are served. Sweets do not play an important role in Kashmiri cuisine. Instead Kahva or green tea is used to wash down a meal.

Kashmiri Handicraft:  Kashmiri handicrafts are prized everywhere for their exquisite craftsmanship. Kashmir carpets, in both wool  and silk with their Persian design, are a lifetime investment  and the shoppers’ selection range from the simple to the most extraordinarily intricate patterns handed down the generations.
