Program

Demonstration of the world-famous Dum Pukht cuisine

"Dum" means to "breathe in" and "pukht" to "cook". Dum pukht cooking uses a round, heavy-bottomed pot, a handi, in which food is tightly sealed and cooked over a slow fire. There are two main aspects to this style of cooking: bhunao and dum, or "roasting" and "maturing" of a prepared dish.

In this style of cuisine, herbs and spices play an extremely critical role. The process of slow roasting gently persuades each to release maximum flavor. And the sealing of the lid; the sealing of the lid of the handi with dough achieves maturing.

Cooking slowly in its juices, the food retains all its natural aromas and becomes imbued with the richness of flavors that distinguishes the cuisines).
