Winter has been here for a while now, and we know what a pain it can be to get up early in the morning. But, not everything’s bad about it. You can take the gastronomic route to winter happiness by trying out these delicious delicacies.

Yakhni Gosht


Straight from Kashmir, this dish is a mildly spiced mutton preparation that isn’t extremely difficult to make. With generous amounts of ghee and yoghurt, this dish pairs well with steamed rice and is perfect for dinner on a chilly night.

Nalli Shorba

If you have a runny nose or a clogged throat due to the cold weather, try Nalli shorba which is a soup made from mutton’s bone marrow. This dish is on the spicier side, and goes well with chapatis.

Cauliflower coconut milk curry

Another winter favourite, this one’s for all the vegetarians who cannot have meat. It’s easy to make, and delicious to taste! On top of that, it scores points for being healthy too.

Sarson da saag and makke di roti

This dish has Punjab written all over it, but it’s widely popular in other parts of India too. That the sarso da saag is made from spinach means it’s great for your health as well.

Thalappakatti Mutton Biryani

You might have tried the Hyderabadi biryani or its Kolkata variation, but this is a variation you’ve got to try. One thing that makes it stand out from other biryanis is that you have to use seeraga sambar rice instead of basmati rice.
