Wazwaan: Traditional Kashmiri Cuisine

Shafi . (Author) Rafi . (Author) Waza Sharief (Author)

When Timur invaded India in the fifteenth century, he unknowingly introduced to the country a cuisine that is perhaps unrivalled in the world – wazwaan. The elaborate preparation and ceremonial presentation of lavish meals, often comprising 36 courses, makes wazwaan a sumptuous and royal repast. Seven dishes typically form an indispensable part of the feast – tabakh maaz, rista, rogan josh, dhaniwal korma, aab gosh, marchwagan korma and ghustaba. Firin and kahwah (green tea) round off a never-to-be-forgotten culinary experience. For the first time ever, the exotic treasury of secret recipes from the renowned family of Waza – the master chefs of Kashmir – are made available to all those who love the cuisine of the beautiful valley.

About the author

Waza Sharief

Master of Kashmiri cuisine, Khan Mohammed Sharief Waza belongs to the Waza family, who introduced wazwaan to Kashmir. Always interested in his family tradition, he joined his father, the legendary Abdul Ahad Waza, at a very young age. He says, ‘My father used to say that wazwaan is a feast for kings. All I know about the intricacies of the art of wazwaan, I learnt from him.’ Khan Mohammed Sharief Waza and his brothers, Shafi and Rafiq, have popularised wazwaan in India and abroad. Wherever there is a Kashmiri food festival anywhere, the catering is invariably done by their Delhi-based company, Ahad Sons. The brothers’ passionate devotion to the cause of promoting wazwaan far and near has resulted in their carving a prominent niche for gourmet Kashmiri food.
