of uncommon spices. The slow-fire cooking enables the meat to absorb its juices.
In addition to the major process of cooking food in Awadhi style, other
important processes, such as marinating meats, contribute to the taste. This is
especially the case with barbecued food that might be cooked in a clay oven or
over an open fire.
The richness of Awadh cuisine lies not only in the
variety of dishes, but also in the ingredients used like mutton, paneer and
rich spices including cardamom and saffron.
