For all the latest Ludhiana News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Madhulika Dash | Updated: September 18 2014 2:05 pm Royal kitchens in Rampur were famous for using ingredients like lotus seeds banana flower khus ki jhad (roots) and sandalwood to give their dishes a unique flavour Related News Say Rampur and one in all likelihood be reminded of Rampuri Chaaku of Bollywood fame (the long foldable switchblade that the villain would often carry and which the Indian government had to ban after Dawood Ibrahim became big) The town which was once home to poets like Mirza Galib is today a relatively obscure place in India’s modern geographical layout But this was not always the case There was a time when Rampur a free kingdom tucked behind the lush boundaries of Lucknow was the place to be in for every artist chef and littérateur Thanks to the effort of one royal: Nawab Faizullah Khan and his loyalty towards the British The story goes that after losing Bareilly Nawab Faizullah Khan established Rampur (erstwhile Mustafabad) in 1774 under the British protection as the Rohilla kingdom Though the treaty ensured that the Nawab and his successors would never find a place in the history books of glory it did make Rampur a safe haven to migrate for artists and patrons alike In fact post 1858 Rampur rose in prominence as the ‘varsity’ for most of the royal khansamas from the Mughal and other royal courts who unable to find work and the artistic liberties they were used to in the royal court migrated to this 17 gun salute kingdom This perhaps explains why Rampuri cuisine seems to be influenced by so many cuisines importantly the Mughlai Afghani Lucknowi Kashmiri and Awadhi cuisine With so many specialty chefs at their disposal the Nawabs finally began developing their own cuisine which till the time was predominantly pasthun style In other words meat heavy made with less of spice and mostly grilled The royal kitchens of Rampur worked on a format that was the norm those days So an expert of rice would only work on rice recipes and not meat and vice versa However the Nawabs would often encourage them to explore and create new things which allowed them to step into each other’s territories and create wonders The result were signature dishes like the Meethe Chawal A rice preparation where twice the quantity of sugar/sugarcane juice was used to create a sweet pilaf that had the texture of biryani You could throw the rice on the floor and it would spill out like pearls The Raza Library once a royal residence today is the largest richest collection of ancient manuscripts especially from Persia Iran Afghanistan and China (Source: Wikipedia) Pulao Marmareed a rice dish made with garlic cloves that are rendered shiny and almost sweet in the process of cooking giving the dish its name—a pulao with pearls — was another But the most exotic was the dal khichada This simple sounding dish was in fact made of rice and lentil kernels carved out of almonds and pistachios Such was the artistry required in this dish that even the Nawab had to inform at least two days in advance for the dish to be prepared And yet the Nawab didn’t have the liberty to ask for more than what was served which was done by the chef who prepared it The doodhiya biryani was yet another example of culinary excellence The biryani characterised by its white colour used milk to create a biryani that looked like white sheet and was one of the few dishes that were served by the chef who used his palm as ladle Old court documents show that using the hand as ladle to serve dishes especially the vegetarian shorbas and curries were commonplace as it was believed that such serving helps enhance the flavour of a dish Of course from the chef point of view this was an excellent way to ensure that the portion sizes were right for everyone and the food never fell short Yet another interesting fact about the cuisine was the use of spice blends The Rampuri Chaat Masala for instances uses more ginger compared to the Delhi Chaat Masala; the Rampuri Korma—unlike regular ones with a white gravy rich in cashew nuts—is identified by its red gravy which is not due to red chillies but tomatoes In fact the royal kitchens were famous for using ingredients like lotus seeds banana flower khus ki jhad (roots) and sandalwood to give their dishes a unique flavour The first iteration of kele ka kebab kathal ke seekh and alu ke kebab was introduced in the Rampuri court before it made its way to the other courts of India much like the famous adrak ka halwa Folklore has it that one of the descendants of Nawab Khan had to have a good quantity of ginger to get his health back But due to the sharp taste the Nawab would often avoid it and find excuses to skip it That’s when the royal sweetmakers were entrusted with the work of bringing out a more palatable way of feeding the Nawab his quota of ginger The chefs worked relentlessly and after a week presented their dish which was placed nonchalantly between the regular lunch buffet It was a general practice those days to be discreet with any new innovation If in spite of that it caught the Nawab’s attention the dish was worked on and then the final dish was presented in a ceremony that was akin to the Master Chef competition today So after a week the Nawab was presented with the dish in a similar manner Enticed by the unusual colour the Nawab asked for the dish twice before he was told that it was adrak But by then the Nawab had taken a liking to the dish and it became one of the royal favourites much like the mirch ka halwa which came a few years after ginger and reached the Bhopal court Many believe that the do pyaza dishes that use browned as well as raw onions came from the kitchens of Rampur where onions were used both to give the dish a sweet and sharp taste Innovative usage of ingredients was a forte of the chefs of Rampur The usage of bottlegourd and papaya to tenderize meat for kebabs and curries first began in Rampuri kitchen and also the use of varq The famous sweetmeat garnish today was put to clever use in the Rampuri court where instead of the parda (made of maida) which was present in the Mughal court silver or gold varq were used to serve dishes This had a dual purpose: first to keep the dish warm and moist and two it ensured that the dish wasn’t tampered with Such was the finesse of the varq used in the kitchen that even the slightest touch would tell that the dish has been touched and immediately rejected So how does one really differentiate between Rampuri cuisine and others With most of the surviving khansamas or chefs unwilling to part with their family recipes most of the dishes served today are interpretation of the few individuals who have tried reviving this almost extinct cuisine What remains however is the usage of spice in the food which is minimal yet effective Unlike the hot spices of Old Delhi; sourness of Hyderabadi food and sweetness of Awadhi khana Rampuri cuisineis characteristed by the use of gingeronions and a mix of javitri (mace) and jaiphal (nutmeg) and khus roots And then of course some are identified by the names like the Sabz Akbari was named after the famous Mughal Emperor and his nine gems the Noorjahani Datia is said to be an ode to the famous queen and the now extinct Kebab e Faizullah was to the Nawab itself It is said that the meat was kept medium rare given the Nawabs love for meat DAL E MUMTAZ DAL E MUMTAZ (Source: Chef Mujeebur Rehman Founder Kitchenett E Awadh)
