Thank you all very much for very interesting posts.

I have never tried Uzbek food so I do not know but I am more interested in Pashtun food. I like nearly all food I must say. Meat dishes, rice dishes, different soups, species etc.

Looks very delicious brother Shadowgovernor and Badmash_Khel.

Is there difference between let's say Qandahari cuisine and Kabuli cuisine? And is there big difference between mountain Pashtun food and the food eaten in cities/lowlands.

So Badmash if I understand this correct then most Uzbek food is actually more Tajik food than Turkic Uzbek. I know that there lives many Tajiks in Uzbekistan but is is truth?

What about Turkmen cuisine and Hazara?

Where can I find recipe of traditional Afghan/Pashtun food? I want my wife to try and make some Afghan food. One of my Pashtun friends from University, one day I tasted a very good soup that had noodles, different vegatables and tomato and mint leaves or similar. He told me the name but I have forgot it now.

Is it similar to any Afghan food or is it more Pakistani? It should be Afghan because he is from Qandahar and not Pakistan.

it is easy to make(not that i know ho to)

i will ask and get back to you with recipe.
you can make two ways.
1:self maid spaghetti thingy
2:use spaghetti

which one do you want.

i will go with nr 2:

recipe
for 4 persons

-put some oil in the pan and put 3/4 of an onion on cookign oil
-than put some tomato past in it
-put some garlic and some green paper fro flavour
-fill the pan 1/2 with water
-break down the spaghetti in middle and put it in the cooking water
-put salt i it and check if it is good
-leave it to boil,throw one sliced White Turnip Bulb in it
-also throw some chopped carrot also to it
-leave it to boil and keep moving it with a big spoon.
-check the spaghetti if its soft ,if soft put it in a soup holder
-chop some mint and put it on it
-squeeze a lemon on it
-spray some powder black paper on it

enjoy

--this is also very good if you have a flue
JazakAllah khayr brother. Very nice of you.

I am no expert on food but I like to try new and also to make sometimes but I am still trying to be better. My wife, sisters and dear mother is MUCH better. But I will try to make this recipe because it looks good.

Al Arab, in our kitabtoon you can find an Afghan cookbook in English. I hope you/your wife will find lots of interesting and yummy recipes.

the average pashtun dish , is shlombe , some leaf of breads some tomato or some onions with it or some other veggies if the people have a bar . once in a while depending on the income , a soup with a few pieces of meat .

eggs are expensive, meat so expensive that 90% can not afford it on a daily basis . or even a weekly basis . same goes for all those tasty and refined dishes ...

Now you are sure too negative about your food which is very wrong. I believe Afghan food has more to offer than what you tell me.

I was thinking what is eaten for dessert? Is there good Afghan/Pashtun deserts? Please tell.
