Agra is noted for its sweets and savories like petha and dal-mooth. Agra is famous for its marble inlay work, leather goods, brassware, finely worked precious and semi-precious stone jewelry, and ornate zari embroidery.
Cuisine of Agra
Several of India’s famous meat dishes come from the north where Muslim influence introduced considerable sophistication.
The superb Mughlai cuisine with its luscious sauces of milk, curd, cream and crushed nuts are available in major restaurants in the big cities.
There is rich, creamy kormas; tender, steak like pasandas in an almond sauce; nargisi kofta, mince (usually mutton) moulded.
