The mozzarella of Kashmir - Kalari

The mozzarella of Kashmir - Kalari

Home to one of the world’s most unique cheeses, have you ever tasted Kalari? Known as the mozzarella of Kashmir, it is made of cow or goat milk and has a stretchy and dense texture, with a mild mozzarella-like flavour. Kalari was traditionally made from raw full fat milk, vigorously churned in an iron pot with a wooden plunger-like tool, an intrinsic part of Jammu and Kashmir cuisine. Since the ambient temperature in the mountains remains low despite a strong sun, the Kalari would dry from the outside yet remain moist inside. This delectable cheese definitely tastes best when paired with a marvellous view of Kashmir’s snow-covered peaks and a plateful of fresh mountain apples.
