Just as Vaishno has a distinct tint in terms of spirituality, religion, culture and traditions, it does so in cuisine too. The influence of these translates into a cuisine that stands out from a larger part of Jammu and Kashmir and borrows a lot from a typical Hindu cuisine. A number of restaurants here will also serve food without onion and garlic.
The local specialities here include chocolate barfi, Sund Panjeeri, Patisa, Rajma with rice, Kalaadi
(a type of processed cheese), Kulthein di Dal, Aria
(a dish made of potatoes) and Maa da Madra.
Other than this traditional North Indian snacks are available and popular. However, alcohol may be prohibited in most areas here.
