Seasonal fruit preserves, calming tea, pickles, and more are made from scratch by the pahadi women of Pauri Garhwal, whose culinary skills are put to good use by the enterprising people at this online store, Himalayan Haat.
We know how much it takes to plan that holiday to the hills. But what if we told you that a bit of that hill station charm can come to your dining table (maybe just in time to pep you up after a tiring zumba class?)
There’s a team of hardworking women who work on procuring the freshest ingredients from nearby farms to turn them into things we relish: pickles, fruit preserves, sauce, summer coolers and more.
Himalayan Haat is basically a small-scale business that operates from a dream office – an orchard farm in the Marrora region. They engage an army of village women who lovingly bottle a piece of the mountains so you can appear cool as a cucumber while sipping their Strawberry Summer Cooler (or Organic Chamomile Tea) as you delegate tasks to new interns.
Crabby mornings are now a thing of the past when you give that boring old toast a layer of the Wild Himalayan Fig Preserve. We however, are leaning towards their Chili Lemon Salt and Strawberry Mint And Pepper Preserve, and can’t wait to place our order.
Price: Coolers and Marmalade start at INR 350
