Signature Delicious Pakistan Food Items
1. Kabuli Pulao
Kabuli Pulao originates from Kabul, the Capital of Afghanistan, and it is the first dish from Kabul is right here in Western Pakistan.
As we all know that the Pulao can be made according to taste and demand. Every chef and housewife who cook for her family makes it different e.g. Biryani, Boiled rice, etc. Usually, there is a chunk of mutton or beef meat, sometimes an entire leg, at the heart of each massive batch.
Saffron gives the Kabuli Pulao a unique taste and color, but typically the spices are less as compared to our traditional biryani. Whole cloves of cardamom give it a sweet aroma, and additional peanuts and pistachios on top as a garnish make it wonderful.
Kabuli Pulao aroma and taste are totally different from our traditional Pakistani food. The platter of Kabuli Pulao looks beautiful, tastes are always incredible. A perfect dish of Kabuli Pulao is now very famous and well-served at local street food and in renowned restaurants and dhabas.
