Taste The Forgotten Delicacies

For a while, I was wondering do we have any one single authentic recipe that is not modified. Maybe No! The western world has to be blamed for it. And the way we choose our menu some recipes may never find a place in our plate because they are hardly known even to our grandparents.

But not all recipes have gone disappear completely, some still exist. And, it’s never too late to bring back the lost cuisine of India. Here are some mouth-watering recipes from past that can still get place in our menu.

Lucknow, the city of Nawabs, takes pride in being the place of origin for this unique paan without paan leaf. Yes, you’d see no paan leaf into this lucknavi delicacy.

There is a story behind malai ka paan. Nawabs had put the ban on paan during their reign, so the chefs of that time invented paan using milk and malai.

This creamy thin paan takes hours to get into the shape and garnished with dry fruits and mishri.
