Neemat Khana Uses Old Ways To Cook, Store And Preserve Food

So, the Awadhi used a wooden kitchen cabinet with steel nets on all sides and a latch to preserve left-over food in the pre-refrigeration days. Since preparing Awadhi-style food was a long process, the women would usually make dried dishes like halwa, barian, and pickles and store them in the cabinets. Each dish would be kept on clay bowls and the nets allowed for proper ventilation. Neemat Khana uses the old ways to store and preserve food to retain the taste and originality.
