Kohima in 24 hours- Places to visit
February 18, 2019 Kohima in 24 hours- Places to visit Engulfed by hills, Kohima is a bustling city nestled in the north eastern part of India and is known for its popular Hornbill festival. The city which is the capital of the state of Nagaland was also pivotal during the Second World War as it was witness to the English- Japanese treaty. Presently Kohima doesn’t portray any glimpses of the colonial times and has all the characteristics of a modern city. However, it has a few attractions apart from the Hornbill festival and the beautiful interiors such as Khonoma, Dzouko valley, Tuophema etc. Here are a few places to visit in Kohima if one has a day to spare. War Cemetery Maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the war cemetery is located in the middle of the town. It houses more than 1300 graves of the brave Indian, British and Commonwealth soldiers who were martyred during the Second World War. An interesting point to note is that most of the martyrs were young and in their early 20s. The cemetery is neatly laid out with well manicured stepped lawns and flowering plants. Located at a height, the higher steps of the cemetery offer views of the sprawling city of Kohima. The cemetery is open from 8 AM to 3:30 PM during summers and from 8:30 PM to 3 AM during winters. War museum Kisama heritage village which holds the Hornbill festival every year also houses a World War II museum with a huge display of memorabilia. The museum offers a great insight into the stories, photographs and other details from the world war era. The Hornbill ground and morungs of various tribes are adjacent to this war museum. The war museum is 12 Kms from Kohima. Local Markets The local markets of Kohima such as Central market or BOC market offers quirky frames. From vegetables to snake fishes to frogs to snails to pigs, the markets offer a plethora of items on sale. It is not recommended for the faint hearted, but for the curious souls these are definitely interesting. It is always recommended to ask for permission before taking photographs inside the market. Catholic Cathedral Atop the Aradura hill, the Catholic Cathedral of Kohima stands tall overlooking the city. Known for its unique geometrical shape, the cathedral is the largest in North East India. Beautiful paintings adorn the interiors of this prominent landmark which was consecrated in 1991 with funding from the people of Japan. Nagaland State Museum This wonderful museum has a magnificent display of myriad artefacts, armoury, household items, musical instruments, jewellery, paintings and photographs of the various tribes of Nagaland. The museum showcases the rich culture of Naga tribes apart from a deep insight into their lives, history and anthropology. There are also numerous sculptures displayed outside the museum which have been unearthed from various locations. The museum is open from 10 AM to 3 PM and remains closed on Mondays. Cafés Café culture and western music have slowly caught up with the young generation of Kohima. There are a few lovely cafes in the city which serve both local and continental cuisine. FIFA café, Symphony café, Oasis restaurant etc. are some of the recommended places to eat in Kohima. Travel Tips: It is recommended to visit the war cemetery and state museum during the first half of the day as they close early in the evening. Shared taxis are easily available to commute across the city. Every shop and restaurant shuts down by 7 PM every day. Make sure to obtain Inner Line Permits before visiting Kohima. How to reach Kohima: Kohima is 70 Kms away from Dimapur which houses the nearest railway station and airport. There are regular shared taxis that ply between Kohima and Dimapur. One can also opt for the public bus service. Shared taxis are available to commute within the city. Food and Accommodation: There are cafes and restaurants across the city.

Biryani Stories: In search of the origin of Biryani Global Voices
Posted 16 February 2019 15:54 GMT Share this: Chicken Biryani from the streets of Hyderabad, India. Image via Wikimedia Commons by FoodPlate. CC: BY -SA 4..0
This is the second article of our series, “Biryani Stories”, which looks at the common culinary culture in South Asian countries. In this installment, we explore the various types of Biryani that exist in India. Read: Biryani Stories: Is Biryani the national dish of Pakistan?
While a debate rages over whether Biryani , the king of South Asian cuisine, originated in Persia (present-day Iran), history suggests that this mixed rice dish has its origins among the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent — part of the Mughlai cuisine for which India is famous.
This does not discount the strong logic behind the claim that Biryani originated in Persia. The word comes from the Persian word “birian”, which means “fried before cooking” — but Iranian Biryani street food no longer contains rice ; rather, it has evolved into chunks of meat cooked in an envelope of paper-thin bread. Of course, it is also possible that the food may have traveled with pilgrims from central Asia to the Deccan region in south India.
The current Indian subcontinent versions of Biryani were developed from the 15th century to about the 19th century, during the reign of the Mughal Empire . The origin & Journey Of Biryani http://t.co/xb6YsRApLk pic.twitter.com/80ez6oQjzI

India is a diverse country in terms of culture and culinary flavors. Northern Indian food varieties, for example, have been influenced by the Mughlai cooking techniques like Dum Pukht (slow cooking in a sealed pot) and butter-based curries , while Southern Indian people are fonder of using more vegetables, rice, and seafood. North and Central Indian Biryanis
One of the most famous Biryanis in India is Lucknowi Biryani , named after Lucknow, the capital of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. In both flavor and aroma, it is considered one of the best Biryanis: the textures are softer and the spices milder.

Hyderabadi Dum Biryani originated as a blend of Mughal and Iranian cuisine during the reign of the Mughal viceroy Asif Jah, who was known as the Nizam of Hyderabad back in the 18th century. His royal cooks would marinate meat with spices overnight and soak it in yogurt before layering it with long-grain, aromatic Basmati rice and placing it in a sealed handi (cooking pot), where it was cooked to perfection in Dum Pukht style.
Hyderabad also has some offbeat flavors of Biryiani, especially Doodh Ki Biryani , which is the polar opposite of the spicy Hyderabadi Dum Biryani: because it is flavored with creamy milk, roasted nuts, and minimal spices, it tastes rather mild. Biryiani in South India
Towards the south of India, the Biryani recipes start to vary wildly, incorporating ingredients like vegetables and seafood. Take the example of Bhatkali Biryani from Bhatkal, a tiny coastal town in Karnataka state. For this dish, the meat, the spices, and the rice are all cooked separately without using oil and ghee , and mixed only seconds before serving.
Further south in Mangalore, a coastal town in Karnataka, there are seafood varieties of Biriyani . In this Pukki Biryani, where half-cooked fish is layered with rice in a sealed handi and slow-cooked, spices like fennel and coriander are common, as is the use of rice varieties other than the traditional long-grained Basmati.
The Ambur Biryani from the Arcot region of Tamil Nadu is basically Pukki Biriyani (rice cooked separately) with a distinctive feature: it uses a short-grained Seeraga Samba rice.
Further southeast, in Kerala, the Thalassery Biryani uses Jeerakasala rice — a short-grained local variant, which is cooked separately from the meat, then combined with the famous spices of Kerala and garnishes like fried onions, cashews, and raisin to blend the flavors. The Kozhikode Biryani (Calicut Biryani) uses Khyma Rice and is tempered with several Kerala spices that give it its signature spicy taste. Biryani in other parts of India
The Memoni trading community of Sindh-Gujarat in northeastern India has Memoni Biryiani , made with lamb, yogurt, fried onions and potatoes, and fewer tomatoes compared to the famous Pakistani Sindhi Biryani. The distinguishing factor in the western Indian Bohri Biryani cooked in Dum style is the moist, smoked meat.
The Kolkata (Calcutta) Biryani from West Bengal is similar to the Lucknowi Biryani, but more subtle in taste, with fewer spices and the addition of potato and egg.
In India’s northeast, the Kampuri Biryani is a simple, colorful dish prevalent in the Muslim town of Kampur in Assam. First, the chicken is cooked separately with peas, carrots, beans, potatoes, and bell peppers, and spiced with mild cardamom and nutmeg. It is then mixed with Basmati rice and cooked over a slow fire. Biryani as street food and temple offerings
The traditional Mughal Biryani was a meat dish, which strictly vegetarian Hindu officers of the court could not have. For them, there was Tehari or Tehri dish , in which the meat was substituted with potatoes. This vegetarian version of the cult dish remains a popular street food in Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh.
Mutanjan Biryani , which uses almost equal amounts of mutton, rice, and sugar, is very popular in Kashmir and Lucknow. It is blended with cream, spices, saffron, screwpine water, and rose water.
There are also instances of Biryani being used in temple offerings: Biryani is part of the holy offering in this temple https://t.co/Y3iOt2ZBu1 😍 #India #food
— Manasi (@ManasiGopal) January 18, 2019
Though social media users quibble about its origins, there is little doubt that Biryani is considered a trademark dish from the Indian subcontinent : There are at least 20 + varieties of biryani like Bombay biryani, Afghan biryani, Hyderabadi biryani, Sindhi biryani, Kacchi Biryani etc & karachiites should realize that they did not invent it or own its rights. Its origin is Mughlai & Awadhi cuisine from Delhi & Lucknow.
— Aaria🍃 (@Aariaa_) November 20, 2017 Although Biryani may be a Persian import, the origin may go back to 2 A.D to a dish called ‘Oon Soru’, recorded in Sangam literature. A meat and rice preparation cooked with Black Pepper and Coriander and more. Could India’s almost national dish have been invented in Tamilakam? pic.twitter.com/cWc5w1a0SU
Yeni review – this modern Turkish restaurant in Soho deserves your attention
Yeni review – this modern Turkish restaurant in Soho deserves your attention Posted on by pickyglutton Leave a comment With brill, octopus and beef ribs on the menu, this isn’t your Dalston mate’s idea of a Turkish restaurant
Yeni is the London counterpart of a feted Istanbul restaurant, but you wouldn’t know it from the Soho restaurant’s website. For the casual observer, the only clues to its Turkish origins are its somewhat enigmatic name and the presence of a few Anatolian ingredients and terms on its short bistronomy-ish menu. This is almost certainly a deliberate attempt to skirt the ocakbasi-derived stereotypes of Turkish food probably held by most Brits.
Given Yeni’s relatively high prices, that’s a wise strategy as we unfortunately live in a society where only a select few ‘ethnic’ cuisines and chefs can get away with charging high prices. This unspoken hierarchy mirrors the general level of acceptance and equality afforded to those who cook it – Japanese restaurants can charge high prices; Chinese and Indian restaurants typically can not (although this is changing, to a degree, in London). If the venomous vitriol about Turkey and its people during the campaigning for the EU referendum is indicative, then there’s relatively little leeway for Turkish restaurants to charge more than the cost of a cinema ticket.
That’s a sad indictment of our society, but one can forgot about that – at least for a few hours – in the embrace of of Yeni’s calm, stripped-back dining room. While Yeni’s contemporary take on Turkish food largely avoids the summer holiday cliches, it doesn’t indulge in any modernist tropes either. It instead takes a grounded approach that remixes ingredients and techniques, while still remaining accessible. Starters at Yeni
Yeni’s manti amuse bouche came in both beef and aubergine versions, with the latter for vegetarians. The beef version had a meaty tang to it, while the eggplant variant was surprisingly sharp and almost citrusy. Both came in an earthy, creamy sauce reminiscent of mushrooms and dotted with sprightly blobs of hot sauce. It aptly complimented both versions to titillating effect. Polka dot theory. Yeni should not be confused with Yen, London’s so-called soba specialists. The ear-shaped aubergine manti maintained its titillating qualities across multiple visits. Ear here.
While a helping of crusty bread was pleasing enough, it paled into comparison next to the wan and wispy butter. Its lactic tang edged with a burnt caramel-like flavour was remarkably addictive, which made its small helping all the more frustrating. Space is allegedly set aside for walk-ins at the semi-communal table in the middle of the dining room. In practice though, this didn’t appear to be the case on at least one occasion. Yes, this butter does look a bit like olive oil.
Wafer thin slices of blood red beetroot were considerably less potent than I expected. This turned out to be a virtue though with its much more moderate flavour – a balance of sweetness and funk – proving to be surprisingly winsome. Accompanied by a sweet olive oil and a thick yet airy labneh, it proved to be an understated yet unequivocal success. Gut red.
Aged feta was almost certainly made from goat’s milk rather than cow’s as it had a deep earthy muskiness. It meshed beautifully with the warmth of spiced honey, which in turned blended with crunchy macadamia nuts and lightly salty samphire to create a dish of uncommon depth and nuance. The melody of sweet, spiced nuttiness and creamy muskiness was truly delightful. Un-feta’d creativity.
It’s unclear whether the cig kofte tartare used beef or lamb, but it didn’t matter in the end. The smoothly ground raw meat had been seasoned just-so, giving it a profound moreishness. While it didn’t quite have the same bite and chew as a good French-style steak tartare, the kitchen did have a trick up its sleeve. Piercing the potato sphere’s crisp shell – itself balanced on top of the meat – unleashed not just a tuft of fluffy carbs, but a stream of rich egg yolk too. It soaked into the meat, enhancing its moreishness even further. An inspired combination and a deft reimagining of classic steak tartare and cig kofte tropes. The warmly-lit dining room is tastefully decorated with an occasional strip of Iznik-style tiles running across the walls. Which are not pictured in this photo of a cig kofte tartare.
Plump scallops made up for their lack of character with their chunky size. The scallops’ inability to evoke the sea arguably allowed them to better act as a conveyor for the superlative qualities of both the sauce and the vegetable puree. The former’s bold umami meshed surprisingly well with the latter’s blend of ginger, carrot and walnut which was surprisingly pumpkin-like. I slurped up every last drop. The dining room has big windows, all the better for observing the tear-stained streets of Soho.
Mangetout and julienned apple were perfect partners-in-crime, the sweet crispness of each almost indistinguishable from the other. They were perfect conveyors for a potent sriracha-esque chilli heat which was itself neatly offset by by a smooth milky yoghurt. Snow peas.
Wafer-thin slices of celeriac had a fruity sweetness as the vegetable had been braised in olive oil. Much of it was prone to mushiness though which, combined with its one-note flavour, meant it quickly became a tiresome eat. This dish would probably have been better suited as an amuse bouche, rather than as a larger starter. Mushy weeze. Mains at Yeni
Yeni’s rendition of brill wasn’t quite as delicate and nuanced as the version sometimes available at the nearby Kiln . The fish was still immensely satisfying though and not just because of its portly dimensions. Its milky, meaty chunks were aptly accompanied by a moreishly lip-smacking sauce dotted with punchy capers and tangy sweet prunes. That might sound like an odd combination, but the two were perfectly balanced. It left me panting for more. Brill-iantly vibrant.
Yeni’s take on stuffed vine leaves was far less satisfying. While certainly filling, it was the sort of monotonous chaff I’d expect from the nearby Mildred’s. The leaves alternated between supple, crisp and chewy. The real problem lay with the surprisingly dull filling of lentils and labenth, neither of which had the depth of character or charming complexity to carry a dish of this size. If I wanted to taste cliched early 90s vegetarian cooking, then I’d trot on down to Brighton. Get stuffed.
A curled octopus tentacle was almost perfectly cooked, the crisp charred crust emphasising the tentacle’s initial springiness and contrasting neatly with the tenderness of the muscular flesh underneath. Its subtle yet addictive moreishness received a boost from the sour cherry-flavoured bulgur wheat, while the impressively airy yet milky labneh sat somewhere in between feta and clotted cream in texture. This dish was nothing short of a masterclass in cooking cephalopods. Day of the tentacle.
Beef rib meat served off the bone had its tangy richness bolstered by a pool of umami jus. The crisp herbs brought a complex, layered sweetness to the dish, adding enough nuance and variety to ensure that the hefty protein portion never outstayed its welcome. Anyone remember Adams Rib just off Piccadilly Circus on Shaftesbury Avenue? What a dump.
Lamb shank came on-the-bone, but a knife was hardly required. The earthy, tender and moist meat slid off the bone with indecent ease. As enjoyable as the lamb and its bed of bitter spinach was, this dish only distinguished itself from its gastropub lookalikes with a rich jus and what appeared to be segments of celery – or perhaps rhubarb – that had a surprising citrusy sweetness to them. Soho shank. Desserts at Yeni
Katayef-ish bite-sized doughnuts filled with a warm syrup would’ve been a fine dessert in their own right. Here though, they were accompanied a thick, dense and elastic ice cream with a subtle yet beguiling sweetness. The warmth of the pastry and the refreshing chill of the ice cream were then bound together by the intense aroma and sweetness of candied orange peel and orange blossom water. Truly remarkable. The ice cream was reminiscent of dondurma, but not as comically paste-like in its elasticity.
Salted caramel panna cotta wasn’t in any way salty, but it most certainly packed the unmistakable sweetness of caramel. The denseness and thickness of the panna cotta was also remarkable, as if its thickening agent had been augmented with just enough salep and mastic and no more. The biscuit wafer perched on top was the perfect partner for the panna cotta. Its macadamia-like nuttiness segued seamlessly into the molasses-esque sweetness of the panna cotta, while its crunch contrasted neatly with the panna cotta’s chunky softness. A pumpkin juice curiously reminiscent of rooibos tea (at least it was in my mouth) rounded off an eminently distinguished dessert. Macadamia lintel.
A repeat visit saw the the salted caramel panna cotta rebalanced, but not for the better. There was more salt and less caramel, while the texture was wispier this time around and not nearly as dense. While still enjoyable, it just wasn’t as satisfying as it had once been. It’s the little things that can make the biggest difference.
I had a similar sentiment revisiting the katayef-esque bite-sized doughnuts. This dessert was almost as delightful as it been before, but for a notable lack of citrusy aroma and tang. The surprising flaccidity of the candied orange peel and absence of orange blossom water left this dessert greatly diminished. Faded grandeur. The Verdict
Yeni’s immense promise is apparent from its sensational renditions of octopus and brill, not to mention its sophisticated, precision-crafted creations such as the cig kofte tartare and feta with honey. Yeni also earns significant kudos with its efficient yet welcoming service which sets it apart from the many other recent new openings in London blighted by hospitality that barely deserves the name. All this makes its failures and wobbles all the more disappointing, from the stuffed vine leaves and braised celeriac to its somewhat inconsistent desserts.
Yeni has the potential to be not just another excellent Soho restaurant, but a restaurant capable of helping reframe our very idea of what Turkish food can be and perhaps even make us think about how our society treats and values those who create it. Only time will tell if it can fulfil that potential and match the soaring standards set by the similar-veined Kyseri. Which is already a problem as I’m hungry with impatience.

When invited to try the Winter Dining Menu at Harvey Nichols, my first thought was along the lines of how on earth they were going to make dining at a shopping centre not feel like dining at a shopping centre. However, I was wrong to even consider this in the first place – the glamour of Harvey Nichols reaches every corner of the Knightsbridge institution, including the restaurant on the 5th floor. Set out like a charming brasserie with trees and blossom, warm lighting and an open kitchen so that most tables have a view of the cooking, the vibe was a contemporary mix of luxury cuisine with filling and comforting food. The set menu is succinct – go for the salmon to start, presented with a unique flair, continue with the lamb which was the perfect size and a real winter warmer, and finish the 3-course meal with the sticky toffee pudding, which, drizzled in hot toffee sauce was the cherry on top of a beautiful meal. Even if you’re not shopping there, do book to try the Winter Dining Menu, available until February 28th, and enjoy a stylish and easy mid-week meal in true Harvey Nichols style. 3 courses and a cocktail for £22 – book via harveynichols.com.

One of the most influential and powerful endorsements for plant-based diets by the Lancelot Medical Journal to save the planet and feed the earths population. Yes, were on the right track!
Seven dietary changes to protect your health and the planet
Consider a diet that can prolong your life and, at the same time, feed a growing global population without causing further damage to the environment.
Thats just what 37 scientists from 16 countries (the EAT-Lancet Commission) did for two years. Their findings resulted in recommendations for a healthy diet that can feed the worlds population from sustainable food systems and were published on Thursday in the medical journal The Lancet.
They recognize that food production needs to nourish human health and support environmental sustainability; currently, our food systems are threatening both. Strong evidence indicates that livestock farming is one of the biggest drivers of climate change, biodiversity loss, land degradation, water use and chemical pollution.
The planetary-health diet, largely plant-based and low in red meat and sugar, is estimated to feed 10 billion people by 2050 from sustainable food systems. The researchers also believe it will prevent 11 million premature deaths a year caused by an unhealthy diet.
WHATS IN THE DIET?
Daily protein comes mostly from plants including beans, lentils, soy and nuts. Whole grains, not refined, are included, and fruits and vegetables fill half of your plate at meals.
The recommended 2,500-calorie diet doesnt completely eliminate animal foods. It can include, each day, one half-ounce of red meat, one ounce each of fish and poultry and one cup of milk or yogurt. One to five eggs can be eaten a week.
Plant-based oils are substituted for animal fats and added sugars are limited to 31 g a day, in line with the WHO recommendation for sweeteners.
IS IT FEASIBLE?
The planetary-health diet is a huge shift from the way we eat. But eating this way isnt completely foreign.
The traditional Mediterranean diet of the early 1960s was largely plant-based and contained only 35 g of red meat and poultry combined each day. Many traditional diets (e.g., West Africa, India, Mexico and parts of Asia) contain lots of plant protein and little meat or dairy.
Some people, though, feel that achieving this global diet isnt feasible.
Not today; thats for sure. Reaching these dietary targets by 2050, the EAT-Lancet Commission points out, will require policies that encourage healthier food choices, agriculture sustainability, stricter rules around governing of land and oceans and reducing food waste.
TRANSITIONING TO A SUSTAINABLE DIET AT HOME
In the meantime, there are small steps you can take on an individual level to move toward the planetary-health diet.
Replace meat with pulses. Substitute cooked brown or green lentils for half of the ground meat in meatloaf, meatballs, burgers, shepherds pie, stuffed peppers and marinara sauces.
Replace some of the meat in tacos and burritos with black beans or pinto beans. Reduce the amount of meat in chili and add extra kidney beans or chickpeas. Eventually, replace all of the meat with beans or lentils.
Replace cheese in sandwiches with hummus.
Use nuts to replace meat. Add almonds or cashews to a vegetable stir-fry instead of beef or chicken. For lunch, have a nut-butter sandwich instead of ham or turkey.
Boost plant protein at meals by tossing toasted nuts or pumpkins seeds into greens salads.
Set a target. Determine how many meatless meals youll eat each week and then build on that. Vegetarian chili, tofu stir-fry, salad with edamame, bean burgers, chickpea curry and lentil soup are protein- and nutrient-packed lunches and dinners.
Include plant-based breakfasts, too. Try a smoothie made with fruit, greens and soy or pea milk, whole grain toast with almond butter, oatmeal topped with nuts and berries, quinoa or millet porridge or scrambled tofu.
Pack in produce. Eat a mix of fruits and vegetables, at least five servings a day (one serving is one-half cup of cooked or raw vegetables, a half-cup of berries or one medium fruit). One-half of each meal should consist of these foods.
Consider your snacks. Making snacks 100-per-cent plant-based is an easy step to take. Choose fruit and nuts, homemade trail mix, vegetables and hummus, whole grain crackers with nut butter, soy/pea milk smoothies or soy lattes.
Rethink restaurants. Youll find a variety of plant-based options at restaurants that specialize in ethnic cuisines such as Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Japanese and Chinese.
Or, pick a plant-based restaurant near you and when travelling.
Reduce food waste. Shop for, store and repurpose foods to minimize waste at home. Avoid buying in bulk; purchase only what you need whenever possible.
Buy ugly produce, misshapen fruits and vegetables often thrown away by farmers and grocery stores. Use vegetable scraps to make soup stock.
Store leftovers at the front of the fridge so you dont forget them; eat within three or four days.
