The cuisine diversity in Afghan food recipes reflects the ethnic, cultural and geographic differences. There are commonalities with India and Pakistan, but Afghan foods are demonstrably different and have long been renowned as a flavorsome cuisine form.
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.
