    It looks much similar to the process done in Bangladesh (except the name of foods, of course). πŸ™‚

  2. Hopefully I can write a description some time soon. Would love to read how things are done in Bangladesh.. πŸ™‚

    At the moment, I don’t have pics, nor enough data to write about. May be sometimes later.

  4. i miss my wazwaan… :-(…… lets hope i get to taste it soon inshaAllah… πŸ˜‰

  5. Yeah, I like the event of the wedding and the actual Wazwan but the whole thing has been blown out of proportion. The last wedding I went to (my cousins), they served 16 dishes and countless platters of stuff like chutni etc. etc. 75% of the food went to waste. I like maintaining tradition but this one has gone overboard, they need to cut it back to manageable scales – I guarantee it would be more enjoyable.

  6. Agreed! πŸ™‚ Excess of everything is bad, and so it follows for the wazwan too.

  7. Your latest post is witness to the fact how much kashmiri’s love food especially Wazwan…!!
    Dont you think the post should be named “Wedding Wazwan” rather than just Wedding……..’coz there is there is lots of other stuff that happens in a “Khandar”

    On a more serious note……..your blog is impressive……and liked your photography too…

    Keep writing good stuff…..

  8. oops……you are right…..its not the latest post!!

  9. The preparation looks delicious.

  10. Arif, I agree there is a lot more to Kashu’r Khandar besides the food. Hopefully I can pen it down some day.. Just that the pictures tempted me to put the food aspect of khandar up for the world to see. πŸ™‚

  12. lemme tell everyone here (as if they were present) that a wedding is actually the feast, d-wazawan,
    the other th
    ings are made for it.
    (yeah the lazy kashmiris revolve around the stomach and not boooring things)

    (ahh the tabakh maaz)

  13. Oye! there is nothing lazy about enjoying Food!
    Food is good! Say Alhamdulillah!

    The only matter of concern is the excess that happens… and excess of everything is bad! πŸ™‚
