Kashmir besides being famous for its beauty is also known for its multiple varieties of breads. A Kashmiri’s breakfast is incomplete without having the traditional kandur chzot or girda in the morning. Kashmiri roti with butter and nunchai is one of the best breakfast meals you can have. Even during the afternoon time, we have a special kind of bread known as chochwoor, which looks like a donut. For other times and occasions, we have various kinds of kulchas, shirmaal, etc.
