Afghanistan Cuisine - Foods & Recipes

Afghani food has evolved around the country's primary agricultural crops - wheat, maize, barley and rice. Augmenting those cereals are traditional dairy products such as yogurt and whey, along with nut crops and 'local' vegetables. Added to that are a big range of fresh and dried fruits. The cuisine diversity in Afghanistan reflects its ethnic, cultural and geographic differences. Although there are commonalities with neighboring countries such as India and Pakistan, Afghan foods are demonstrably different and have long been renowned as a flavorsome cuisine form.
