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.
