Kashmir is a land with innumerable blessings and a place rich in art, culture and cuisine.
Huma I am a morning person and ‘Oh so British’ with my spot of milk tea and fresh toasted bread and butter with marmalade all home-made. However, in Kashmir, morning rituals, served with a smile, and newspaper wrapped ‘TRADITION’ breads like TSOT / GIRDA are golden, doughy and slightly chewy, is BREAKFAST for all seasons. Morning […]
