To be sure, the Burmese cuisine is a very tasty one and comprises many delicious dishes, which I love to cook as learned from my wife and, of course, to eat and share with family and friends. But where do these recipes have their origins? Over and over again locals are talking and writing proudly about a 'traditional Burmese cuisine' and a 'pure Burmese and not hybrid cuisine'. Pure Burmese? Traditional Burmese? Not hybrid? What does traditional or original or pure Burmese cuisine actually mean? Does it mean originated in the country that was named Burma by the British or does it mean originated from the Bamar (Burmans) who make up the majority of Burma's population and are not getting tired of speaking of 'their cuisine'? And how original or pure 'Burmese' is the Burmese cuisine anyway? I am living since 25 years in Burma and know a lot about Burmese cuisine but have nevertheless done some research focused on these questions in order to get it right. Although I had initially thought it would be a cake walk to find the answers to these questions it turned with respect to the cuisine of the Bamar out to be quite a difficult task.
Punjabi Cuisine. This Indian cuisine can be found in Punjab and it's a little similar to Mughlai cuisine from the North West frontier. These dishes are topped off with butter and ghee, which makes them even more appetizing and appealing. Some of the famous dishes are Dal Makhani (Black lentils), Tandoori Chicken, Rogan Josh and Naan. The most famous drink is lassi (buttermilk). Restaurants across India serve this cuisine and you can check this cuisine out at the renowned restaurant Punjabi by Nature in New Delhi. Kashmiri Cuisine. This cuisine is found in Kashmir, and it is influenced by cuisines from Uzbekistan and parts of Afghanistan. This Indian cuisine uses a lot of yoghurt, turmeric and mutton but the chefs cut down on the spices and onions. Some of the popular dishes are Yakhein (a yoghurt based dish with chicken), Razmah Goagi (a combination of kidney bean and turnip) and Gaad (a variety of Fish with radish). Kashmiri cuisine isn't as popular as the other cuisines, so not many restaurants serve this kind of food.
In fact, the Indian curry has carved a name for itself on the food map of the world. From London to Libya, from Montreal to the Middle East--the food lovers simply love devouring the spicy and lip-smacking Indian food. The entire South East Asian region loves the spicy and hot Indian food and the local cuisines of the area show strong Indian influence. This is not to suggest that Indian cuisines do not reflect foreign influence. Actually, the Indian food shows strong foreign influence especially of the Middle East, Central Asia, Mediterranean, and Europe (particularly Portugal and England). Tomato, chilies, and potato used generously and commonly in preparing the various food items in India were introduced to India by Portugal. Clever and generous use of various spices such as chilies, black mustard, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander, asafetida, garlic, and clove distinguish the Indian food which is, interestingly, identified by its distinct aroma, flavor and color.
