Mughal cuisine is considered aristocratic and differs due to its elegant Tandoori aroma and taste of ground spices. It bases on Muslim traditions: the dishes of this cuisine are prepared using dried fruits, nuts, milk and cream, and almost all the dishes are non-vegetarian.
Moreover, in ancient times, the padishahs of the Great Mogul Empire used to enjoy these dishes. The Empire extended over the territories of modern India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and South-Eastern Afghanistan. Many of the Mughal dishes have Persian names, as Farsi (Persian) was the official language at the Imperial court. As for these days, the Mughal cuisine is common in Northern India.
