A place where snow is glistening white, the beautiful row houses smell of the best home-made spices, the shimmering waters are never dry, you know you’re in heaven when you come in the arms of this picturesque land of Kashmir. And then the moment passes by, and you’re back to where you belong- the busy city life, the junk street food, far away from the spices your taste buds as well as your senses weren’t able to resist. You need nothing else if you live in Kashmir, for the rest of us, there is Poush.
Poush is a kashmiri cuisine restaurant in Mumbai, specialising in the best of authentic Kashmiri delicacies. Kashmiri cuisine has evolved over hundreds of years. The first major influence was the food of the Kashmiri Pandits, the Hindus of the valley. Subsequently, it has been strongly influenced by the cuisines of Central Asian, Persia, and Afghanistan. There are two main schools of Kashmiri cookery – The Hindu style and the Muslim style. Both of them are similar in many respects, but also differ in many ways specifically around usage of minced meat which is dominant in the Muslim variation. The Muslim school of cooking too has some very unique dishes such as “Goshtaba” & “Tabak Maaz”- absolute delights for the meat lover.
Poush-the Essence of Kashmir has been feeding the desire of Mumbai food lovers with the best taste right since its inception. Started on a small scale, Poush now has a Kashmir ambience resort on Mumbai-Ahemdabad highway as well as huge fine dining restaurant in Thane. To add to that, Poush has now come to Kurla Market City! Kashmir is growing on us, and Poush is making sure it does.
