Khurmi ~ Chandigarh Special

Khurmi ~ Chandigarh Special


         We are going to explore most beautiful cities in India,  Chandigarh. With broad, less congested roads, leisurely pace of living, great food, super shopping, and nearness to the hills, Chandigarh is a good city.. CHANDIGARH IS the most beautiful and clean city to live in. It was the dream city of our first prime minister of India Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, and was planned by French architect Le Corbusier. It was the best experiment of modern planning and architecture in the twentieth century in India.  
 
        The traditional food of Chandigarh is spicy and makes use of oil and ghee to a considerably higher extent. There are no intricate marinades or exotic sauces, but an exuberant use of spices with a liberal addition of oil or ghee. The people prefer wheat items to rice. Among the different wheat items, the most popular ones are Makkee ki Roti (chapatti made of corn) and stuffed parathas.
Milk and milk products are commonly consumed by the people of Chandigarh. In fact, curd, buttermilk, and lassi are important beverages that accompany a meal. The people here use ginger-garlic paste as a common spice and add lots of onion and tomatoes to the meals as well. They also use the spices included in ‘garam masalas’, like cardamom, cinnamon, mace and bay leaf, regularly in their food preparation. Besides they usually garnish their food with finely cut coriander leaves and juliennes of ginger. (info bharat online & merinews)
