How could one forget eating the following:

Urad khichri with aslee ghee and mooli kaa achar on palangs in the sun in winter
Bairee roti with rabri, qeema and aalo bhurtaa.
or Baisnee roti with aam (mangoes)


Shaljam gosht

It should be Masaalaa chai

Syeda Masood replied 14 years ago

That is true. The Amroha cuisine is so unique and so delicious. Nothing beats it and we want it where ever we go.

Childhood memories of Aam (Mangoes) with Baisnee roti, eaten in Amroha on a char paii with my cousins are precious.

Ikram Naqvi replied 14 years ago

Just feel like eating masalaa khichri cooked in earthen pot with aslee ghee, aam kaa achar and dahi(yoghurt) on a charpai today.
What would like eating today?

Looking for an authentic Amroha recipe for ‘shulgem ghost.’ Is there anyone who can help me.

Maryam Jahan replied 14 years ago

Unfortunately I do not have authentic Amroha “Shaljam gosht ” recepie. I cook shaljam with spinach using Madhu Dixit’s recepie for palak (spinach)gosht.

safia Khan replied 14 years ago

So who has an authentic Shuljum-ghost recipe?
We desparately need it now after Suhail’s Story on ‘THE AIS Website”

Have not eaten bajrai ki roti with urad daal for a long time. I can remember as a young boy going to our village with my father and eating this. Has anybody got a recepie?

Maryam Jahan replied 13 years ago

I asked for shaljam gosht recepie some time ago.
Unfortunately nobody has responded yet. I would be grateful if somebody does it soon. Cant beat shaljam gosht of Amroha.

Have been enjoying Baisni roti with Aam. I feel like I am in Amroha whenever I do this.Brings back memories of going to the garden and picking mangos from the tree in that heat.

Maryam Jahan replied 7 years ago

Have just returned from Amroha.Eating mangos with Baisni roti was the highlight although it was very hot.

Tanvir Ali replied 7 years ago

Nothing can beat eating mangos with Baisni roti on palang in Amroha. I envy Maryam for eating this in Amroha recently. Looking forward to experience this soon.

Maryam Jahan replied 7 years ago

While I am enjoying Chonsa mango from Pakistan in London at present it is not as tasty as those from Amroha which I enjoyed last year in Amroha.
