Punjab has rich cultural history and people are known for their large heart. They love eating and also love feeding people. Look around during any of their festivals, you will find people distributing food to everyone. They are very lively and their food too like them is rich and splendor.
Do you know that Punjab has the highest per capita consumption of dairy products? Yes you are right. Their food is incomplete without lassi, clarified butter and other dairy products like paneer. Their cuisine is largely influenced by their agriculture and farming lifestyle, which they have been doing for centuries. They also have influence of using tandoor for making various dishes. They are equally fond of non-vegetarian products and meat, chicken and fish too is loved tremendously!. Tandoor is an essential part of their cooking. In India, tandoori cooking was traditionally associated with Punjab. (Tandoors supposed to have originated from somewhere in the Middle East and migrated to Asia through trade and invading armies. The birth place of the tandoor will always lie in the region comprising North India,parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan and the South-West of China. Apparently the tandoor was supposed to have been brought in by the migrating Aryan tribe. The theory holds that the Aryans were originally from India who travelled in search of grazing lands to the Caucasus mountains and returned to India after a couple of centuries. It was them who carried the tandoor from India around Asia and back again)
In main course we tried mix of veg and non-veg like hare saag wali macchi, keema kaleji, kukkad kadai wala,meat te chawal and choliya da paneer along with sarson da saag. We finished our meal with delicious til ke ladoo!
