Authentic Punjabi Cuisine
The Punjab Province is a former province of British India. Following the 1947 partition of India, the Punjab Province was divided between modern day India and Pakistan, and a further two states were later added in the 1960s in the form of Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.
An amalgamation of the words ‘punj’, meaning five, and ‘ab’, meaning water, the Punjab is also often referred to as ‘The Land of Five Rivers’ and its affluent agricultural history based around the water-ways is said to be what attracted other nations to form colonies there during the diverse history of the region. Not only has the heritage of the region contributed to the cooking style and food traditions, it has also produced other significant cultural elements, including the vastly popular Bhangra style of dance, as well as music and Punjabi poetry.
Stemming from a rich and diverse cultural heritage, the Punjab has produced some of the world’s best contributions to modern cooking, and has influenced and inspired a great many Indian restaurants around the world. The dishes are largely like the history of the region in that they are diverse and varied. Dishes that originate from the Punjab region include ever-popular dishes including pakoras, rogan josh, butter chicken, tikka dishes and naan, as well as being the birth place of the Tandoori style of cooking.
