Other wonderful handicrafts of Kashmir are carpets, papier mache, wicker baskets, silk and tweeds, wall hangings with naqqashi work, wooden items, etc.
Spices are important ingredients of Kashmiri cuisine as they render a special taste and aroma to the food. Kashmiri rice and non vegetarian dishes are an important part of the cuisine.
