5 Home Recipes That Are Getting Lost in Time

5 Home Recipes That Are Getting Lost in Time

Along with sounds of school bells, the sweet smell of summer vacations, the simple memories of the whole family huddling together to watch TV, and an innocence that seems to have faded many moons ago, there are too many things that are getting lost in time. Prime example: our recipes! 

To say that India’s culinary heritage is rich is an absolute understatement. Each state has its own flavour and delicacies and we at Paper Boat are always finding ways to pay homage to them.


Soaked Almonds

Let’s face it, Maa was right about *many* things, one amongst them being the myriad benefits of soaked badam. From healthy and glowing skin to better digestion to better brain health to boost in immunity, we’d be nuts to give them a miss – all puns are indeed intended. Besides, did you know? Soaked almonds are better than dry almonds because the peel of almonds contains tannin, which hinders nutrient absorption. Peeled almonds allows the nuts to release all the nutrients easily. It also might just appeal to your taste buds a lot more (probably something your mother knew best about). You could also opt for the Paper Boat Garlic and Herbs Peeled Almond And Seed Medley, which makes for a seriously mouthwatering evening snack.

Kashmiri Shufta Kanaguchhi

Called the rich man’s food owing to the exquisite nature of its ingredients, this delicacy native to Kashmir is one that’s too precious to get lost in time. A local dessert, it is served at Kashmiri weddings. This is what culinary dreams are made of. If you are in the mood to have a crunchy dessert or healthy evening snack made with dried nuts and fruit like almonds, walnuts, dried dates along with kesar, rose petals and cinnamon (among many other ingredients) then you should definitely try making this delicacy. You could also use Paper Boat Honey Glazed Nuts to make it. For added feels, put on a traditional Kashmiri phiran and find a fireplace to set the mood while you dig in.

Phulkari Pulao

When you think of Punjab, how can you not think of the vibrant and colourful design called Phulkari? But did you know its relevance goes beyond the art form and into our favourite place – the kitchen – too? This particular pulao, an aromatic preparation of rice is unique because it’s got a sweet taste, uses an assortment of rice and vegetables, is made in earthen cookware (a handi) using poppy seeds and saffron. Besides, it is said to be made with hand-churned ghee and barely anyone does that anymore. Sigh!  

For now, we’ll just put on our favourite Punjabi music and pretend to be Simran (hello DDLJ fans) running through a gorgeous field in Punjab while actually running to the kitchen because the talk of all this awesome food has made us so hungry! What about you?
