What’s the catch?
There are many food festivals taking place around the city. But what makes this Awadhi Food Festival a must tasting experience is the whole procedure and listing of ingredients involved. While talking to Chef Qureshi, we got to know that Awadhi food involves slow cooking so vegetables can achieve the desired flavor.
“Coming from a family of chefs who had a long association with the nawabs of Lucknow, since childhood I have learned the nuances and intricacies of Awadhi fare and enjoyed cooking it with lots of spices, dry fruits and herbs, ” said Qureshi.
