Kashmiri Kahwah (Tea) Recipe

Kahwah (Urdu: قہوہ‎, also transliterated qehwa, kehwa or kahwa) is a traditional green tea preparation consumed in Afghanistan, northern Pakistan, some regions of Central Asia as well as the Kashmir Valley. In Pakistan, it is made in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan regions. It is a popular breakfast beverage among Kashmiris, generally accompanied with special Kashmiri baked items like girda. Kashmiri Pandit migrants living in the North Indian plains, particularly in the urban agglomeration of Delhi, have also contributed to the tea’s popularity among non-Kashmiris.

The tea is made by boiling green tea leaves with saffron strands, cinnamon bark, cardamom pods and occasionally Kashmiri roses to add a great aroma. Generally, it is served with sugar or honey and crushed nuts, usually almonds or walnuts. Some varieties are made as an herbal infusion only, without the green tea leaves. Kahwah is usually served to guests or as part of a celebration dinner, and saffron (kong) is added to the kahwah for special visitors.

On its own, a screwdriver will only help you in a small way. Although it can be very useful, there are only a  few jobs that you can use it for. When, however, you use this screwdriver as part of a complete tool kit,  the range of options open to you is enormous. A craftsman with a good tool kit can make many different,  useful things.

Similarly, individual thinking skills used on their own may help you in a small way. When, however, you  use many different thinking skills together, your ability to solve problems increases significantly.
