When one mentions Pakistani cuisine the first things that come to mind are rice dishes and kebabs. Lamb finds prominence more in Pashtuni cuisine than any other Pakistani cuisines. Rice haleem, chapli kabab, tikka and mutton karahi are the most famous amongst Pakistani dishes.


Pathans favour oven-baked bread with cubes of meat which they call nan-kebab. Milk, lentils, seasonal vegetables and flour and wheat products form the basis of Pakistani cuisine. Chapatti is a flat bread made from wheat and is a staple in most parts of Pakistan.


In Pakistan too as in many other Asian nations, meat dishes are eaten as breakfast, especially on holidays. A traditional Sunday breakfast is Siri-Payay (the head and feet of lamb or cow) or Nihari, a dish which is cooked overnight to get the meat extremely tender.


How different is Pakistani cuisine from Indian cuisine, is a question many ask. The food eaten in these two neighbouring countries are mostly the same though consumption of meat is more in Pakistan than in India.
