© Desi Zaiqa 2011 Pakistani cuisine can be described as a refined  blend of various regional cooking traditions of the  South Asian subcontinent. Pakistani cuisine is  known for its richness and flavor. Within Pakistan,  cuisine varies greatly from region to region,  reflecting the country's ethnic and cultural  diversity. Food from the southern provinces of  Sindh and the Punjab, as well as the Pakistan-  administered Azad Kashmir region, is quite  similar to the cuisine of Northern India and can  be highly seasoned and spicy, which is  characteristic of the flavours of the South Asian  region. Food in other parts of Pakistan, particularly  Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa  and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas,  involves the use of mild aromatic spices and less  oil, characterizing affinities to the cuisine of  neighboring Afghanistan, Iran, and Central Asia.  International cuisine and fast food are popular in  cities. Blending local and foreign recipes (fusion  food) such as Pakistani Chinese, is common in  large urban centers. Furthermore, as a result of  lifestyle changes, ready made masalas (mixed  and ready to use spices) are becoming  increasingly popular. However, given the diversity  of the people of Pakistan, cuisines generally differ  from home to home and may be totally different  than the mainstream Pakistani cuisine.  Serving Halal Zabihah Cusine Pakistani - Bangladeshi - Indian Restaurant and Catering
