Overseasoned food robs the natural richness of meat. A nice lamb shank should be peppered, mildly salted, not drowned in elaborate sauces and oils ......

That's how most meat in Pashtun areas on both sides is prepared anyways. Don't get why people are making such a big fuss about this....it's true that Pak Pashtun cuisine is a little more like Desi cuisine but the difference isn't huge, especially in my house because we don't really eat spicy food.

That's true; I was just making a remark about Erectile Dysfunction's favoring desi style cooking.

By tasty i doesnt mean heavily mirch masala food, i am also talking about sweet and tarwaskun dishes........Afghanistan cuisine is bland, simple and less tasty.......food in our parts (Pakistani Pashtuns) is very less spicy compared to Punjab and India.....while Punjabis use too much of mirch masala in every thing

I can't barely eat Punjabi food unless it's a solid meat dish like Tandoori chicken. Their curries are just not for me. Pashtun food>Desi food. Mediterranean and Middle Eastern are also pretty good.

By the way its misconception that Curry/stew/broth is not eaten in Afghanistan......Curry or stew or broth is "borr", "Yakhni" and "Shorwa" of our Pashto and is cooked in Afghanistan and Pakhtunkhwa, of chicken (and of many other birds), mutton and beef

I think they also eat daal. Which is why I never got the "Daalkhor" insult.

Actually Daalkhor is slang word for vegetarian.....Hindus and Hindus were vegetarian and Afghans/Pashtuns used to call them dhalkhor with contempt.....Punjabi diet was actually vegetarian not long time ago (evident from 19th century description of Punjab and Sindh by British).....the mutton and beef habit got popular in Punjab and Sindh due to influence of Pashtuns, Urduspeakers and Balochs after 1947

All these meat dishes of Pakistan brought from India by Urduspeakers, are actually Rohilla and Lucknow foods......the meaty food was popular in Rohilkhand due to Rohilla Pashtuns who brought it from Pakhtnkhwa/Afghanistan
