  1. Hi Manu,

    Sounds interesting :)

    Although I've been to Himachal many times, I've not yet tried Kangri Dham! All I tried last time was Madra and that was pretty good and different. I think cooking them in these vessels makes it all the more tasty.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    I think this way of cooking and serving is a SPECIAL way of showing its culture and traditional in the way of sharing the food with the neighborhood and friends. As i can see, everyone is equally given its share of food and everyone is enjoying it.I don't know much about the places of India but i can tell that the food cooked in those special pots are exotic and delicious. A very good presentation of culture and tradition..Keep it up..
