Krishna Prasad Dar’s collection of over a hundred Kashmiri recipes became a classic in its time. First published a decade ago, this new revised edition is beautifully illustrated by his son, cartoonist Sudhir Dar, with an informative introduction to Kashmiri food, one of the subcontinent’s most elaborate and interesting cuisines.
This book has been a labour of love. My father began to write it when he was eighty and though it took over a year to complete, his great passion for cooking and his lifelong belief that if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well kept him in good spirits till this mega task was over. In the last stages it became a great family effort and three generations were deeply involved in what we believed was somewhat of a pioneering exercise.
Now the magic formulae are yours. This book is divided into seven parts. The methods are precise and simple to work on. Savour a little of this, a little of that, but when you settle down to eat, please do justice to the cuisine-eat with your fingers.
