My name is Hassaan Chishti. Me and my family are based out of Humhama, Budgam. I have done Bachelor’s in History from Delhi University followed by Master’s in International Studies from Symbiosis School of International Studies, Pune.
When the pandemic engulfed the entire world, I moved back to Srinagar. After staying here for a while I realized that the food palette of the valley is a bit too monotonous for my liking. I along with my family and aunt’s family came together with this idea and we started a little kitchen to cater to this need.
We choose the name “Clove Cinnamon Cardamom” as these three spices are found in a lot of Kashmiri food and other Indian foods as well. These spices are something that everyone can associate with, even if they have no familiarity with the cuisine they are having.
Our USP is our family. Everything in “Clove Cinnamon Cardamom” is done by the family, be it cooking, packaging, or delivering. Our dishes are made with the same things that we make our home food with. We give everything we make a personal and homely touch.
All thanks to Almighty the response has been great till now.
Even though we have a good response for Butter Chicken, Laal Maas and Hyderabadi Hari Mirch Chicken, the demand for Sukhe Kofte has been surprisingly tremendous! Other than this our harissa is also popular amongst our customers.
I would say the biggest 3 challenges are marketing, price rise and winters.
We are a relatively new venture so marketing our brand and getting our name to stand out takes a lot of effort. Also, we work on low margins, so due to increasing market prices we have to keep changing our prices.
Another challenge we faced was due to weather here, snow and rain cause logistic issues.
We have a few things planned for the summer, and even beyond. But, we are taking one step at a time. Let’s hope for the best.
