Kashmiri food is pretty hard to come by, and authentic versions even more so. So you can imagine my joy when I was told about the Wullar Kitchen. In an attempt to bring food from the kitchens of everyday Kashmir to Bangalore. Owais Rasool, who is originally from Kashmir, is the kind person who has been sharing the amazing recipes, though this home kitchen. And no, it's not just the Waazwan food that you are used to! They're a home dining experience, which gives you an on-point introduction to authentic Kashmiri food, and we must insist you have their offerings around Eid.
The Mutton Pulao was just perfect. A delicate combination of spices with lamb and rice, the meat just literally fell off the bone, and was so fragrant, my father sniffed it in the other room. Not just did he come to inspect, he ended up eating it too! Rogan Josh was spicy (not just chilli) with succulent and soft meat, and with the pulao, it became my new favourite couple. You could also order their Lotus Stem Yakhni Rice Bowl that has a luscious creamy gravy with the goodness of the lotus stem, a Kashmiri specialty. Wullar Kitchen now accepts orders everyday and the menu includes all your favourite Kashmiri specialties like Rogan Josh, Mirchi Korma and Mutton Yakhni, but in the form of a Kathi Roll, perfect for a bite. There’s also the yakhni kabab, slightly drier version of the gravy and best suited for a taster.
