What You Didn’t Know About Pakistani Food

May 12, 2017

Here at Royal Nawaab, we are well known as an Indian restaurant- however we also have a wide range of Pakistani cuisine that we want our visitors to know about in advance. In this blog, we’re going to go over some of the things you may not have known about Pakistani cuisine in order to shed some light on this flavoursome food…

  • Pakistani and Indian food are not the same and there are quite a few differences between them. From the style of cooking that is employed to the range of different spices that are used, both styles of cuisine are very different in their own right.
  • Pakistani dishes are usually eaten with your hands and it is interesting to know that children brought up with the food are actually taught this from a young age similar to how Chinese children are taught to use chopsticks.
  • Pakistani cuisine has been widely embraced by the street food of Pakistan, with vendors selling the likes of Gol Gappe, Chaat, Paan and Shawarma!
  • Pakistani food is known for being a rather heavy style of cuisine due to its use of rice and potatoes alongside other starch filled foods. It is thought that the style of cooking and foods implemented into the culture were first employed during a time of history when people were much more active and able to sustain such a rich diet.
