Kashmiri Cuisine is a hidden pearl in the ocean of diverse Indian recipes. Not many people explore this cuisine nor is it commonly served in restaurants. A peep into this cuisine disclosed a wide array of amazing dishes and a style of cooking which was unexplored by me until now. Yakhni is a yogurt based mutton gravy which seems to have originated in Persia and percolated to Kashmir sometime during the Akbar Era. The flavours of fennel, dry ginger,cumin and cardamom combined with yogurt gives this dish a real soothing touch and makes this different from the usual mutton gravies.
