A KASHMIRI TARAMI

A search on google throws up the name of a few restaurants serving Kashmiri food, there is nothing I could find that shows the beauty of this traditional Kashmiri utensil, so painstakingly carved out of hand, look closely and you will be able to see the "chinar" leaves reminiscent of beloved Kashmir...and a bygone era...

Immerse yourself in the intricate workmanship and you will realize you are transported back in time...to the Valley...
