In the month August we celebrate some big festivals like Eid and Rakshabandhan. It’s the month of holy Ramadan and girls tying the sacred thread of trust on their brother’s hand. Both the celebrations call for a royal treat and hence this theme.
This month is about eating Royal treats passed on to us by the kings and queens. Yes, we are going to celebrate Royal Cuisine here, the foods cooked in royal kitchens of India and other countries. For example the famous Lucknowi and Hyderabadi Cuisine made in the kitchen of The Nawabs, The Dum food coming from Awadh, The Peshawari food from Peshawar, The Rajputana delicacies from Marwar, The food from Marathwada and so on.
I know the royal treats are very rich and mostly high on calories and so you are most welcome to make a low calorie version as long as there’s no compromise on the taste. Similarly, there are many non vegetarian preparations made by the kings and queens, if you are a vegetarian, you can make a veg version of the preparation and mention that in your post. Also, would appreciate if you could provide some history behind the recipe.
This Royal affair on food is guest hosted by a dear blogger friend Divya who posts her recipes at Divya’s Culinary Journey.
The more elaborate details of the event can be checked out at her space. I’m lucky that www.tarladalal.com has agreed to sponsor the giveaway for the third consecutive year here at Foodelicious.
