Knowledge about civilization and food habits of different nations will promote understanding and peace, said Maher Al-Mogily, imam of the Grand Mosque in Makkah at India’s food festival on Sunday.
Andhra Pradesh Youth Welfare Association (APYWA), Telugu Academy and Hyderabad Young Men’s Association organized the festival. The event was held at the office of Khalid Fouzan, a leading businessman, in Jeddah.
Fouzan said the Saudi business community takes keen interest in occasions like the food festival to strengthen ties between expatriates and Saudis.
Indian Consul General Faiz Ahmed Kidwai said that Indian food is heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices. The tastes of Mughlai cuisine
vary from extremely mild to spicy. A Mughlai course is an elaborate buffet of main course dishes with a variety of accompaniments. It is prepared with traditional utensils, using ingredients that are slowly cooked to the right degree.
