Mughlai cuisine is one that has stood the test of time. Brought to our country by the Mughals, it continues to be a favourite, especially on special occasions that call for rich food. Loaded with ghee, dry fruits, saffron, and other dairy products and spices, authentic Mughal cuisine is very rich and heavy. However, nowadays there are lighter variants being made by replacing some ingredients and cooking methods with low-fat alternatives.

This section introduces you to authentic Mughal cuisine, including a whole range of traditional favourites spanning all courses of a meal. You will find that there is a very large variety of Mughlai dishes, ranging from mild and creamy to extremely spicy ones. Take your pick from the innumerable choices like Afghani Paneer, Mughlai Aloo Lajawab, Badami Kewra Sevaiyan, Baingan Musasalam, and Kabuli Chana Kofta Biryani. From koftas and kebabs to biryani and Shahi Tukda, you will find most popular dishes as well as some lesser known delights in this section.
