Indian cuisine serves as a fusion of diverse food cultures stemming from various regions and sub-regions, each boasting a rich history and an extensive array of distinctive dishes. Upon exploration, it becomes evident that each regional culinary tradition is heavily influenced by factors such as climate, geography, culture, and locally sourced ingredients.

An age-old Kashmiri practice involves sun-drying summer vegetables to offset winter scarcity. Commonly dried vegetables include brinjal (Wangan Hachi), tomatoes (Ruwangan Hachi), turnip (Gogji Aare), and more. Among the popular winter dishes arising from this practice is Ruwangan Hachi Chaman or Hokh Tamatar and paneer.
