Pakistani Food Recipes & Cuisine

Pakistani food recipes and the cuisine of Pakistan is known for its richness and flavour. It varies greatly from region to region due to the country's ethnic and cultural diversity. Food from Punjab and Sindh exhibits similarities to that of Northern India – highly seasoned & spicy!

Dishes in Balochistan, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Tribal Areas use mild, aromatic spices and less oil. This is similar to the cuisines of nearby Afghanistan and Iran.

International and fusion dishes, and fast food are popular in the cities, blending local and foreign recipes. Population lifestyle changes means ready-made masala and other seasonings and curries are becoming ever more popular. The ethnic variations across Pakistan means recipes & dishes vary from house to house. Because of that, it is often quite different from the “traditional” Pakistani cuisine.
