Kashmiri Lehsun/कश्मीरी लहसुन: Snow Mountain Garlic, also known as Kashmiri Lehsun or Himalayan Garlic or Ek Pothi Lahsun is a specific variety of garlic found in the Himalayan region. It is much smaller in size compared to the commercial garlic consumed in everyday life. In Ayurveda, it is a highly revered medicine and considered very effective alone for many ailments including Lung Cancer, Diabetes and Asthma. According to modern research, it is found to be seven times more potent than commercial garlic.
Kashmiri Lehsun has a hard, golden-brown husk and looks like an individual clove of garlic. It has a rounded, bulbous shape with a stiff, flattened portion on one side coming to a point at the tail end of the clove. The small, single cloves measure 1.5 to 4 centimeters in diameter. The hardened outer layers form a protective husk for the bulb while it develops in sub-zero degree temperatures. The clove beneath is a bright white to creamy-white color and offers a strong, pungent garlic flavor without the acidity present in other varieties.
Kashmiri Lehsun can be used both raw and cooked. To maximize the beneficial properties in the garlic, crush or mince before using. In India, Kashmiri Lehsun is most commonly consumed raw for the health benefits. The so-called ‘pearls’ are crushed and then swallowed, followed by drinking two glasses of cool water. Use Kashmiri Lehsun in any recipe calling for garlic. Use in pesto and other sauces or dips. Add minced cloves to risotto, pasta, or sautéed vegetables. To avoid mold or spoilage, store Kashmiri garlic in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. It will keep for up to two months.
