In response to 'Just accept reality' by Mr Hammad, I ask: Who was the first to criticise Indian cuisine and praise Pakistani food and who has the right to decide which one is better?
Is Mr Alfulaij in a position to do so, merely by having a bad experience in the company of one person among millions?
Well, Mr Alfulaji, everyone is not used to having varied presentations of food each day.
So you are not in a position to judge from one bad experience.
India has the largest variety of vegetarian food compared to any cuisine across the world.
It doesn't just rely on dal, unlike your poorly-informed company.
Since the time I have been reading the debate, I have noticed that only a few dishes were provided as examples - biryani, kebab, nihari....
Is that all you have got?
Alright, they may taste better in Pakistan, but what about more than 40,000 other Indian dishes Pakistanis don't get right?
There can be many examples on either side. Who are you to compare apples to oranges?
Just because you like one better than the other?
If you are a food fan, then be fair, travel more and try out the authentic Lucknowi tunde kebab and Hyderabadi biryani, get a taste of the Paranthewali Gali in Delhi, travel Punjab for the best chhole bhature and Chennai for an amazingly blended sambhar. The list is endless.
As stated by A G, area plays an important role in many dishes in India. When speaking of Indian cuisine, Pakistani food is generalised very conveniently without putting any research into it.
It is possible that you may have a natural liking for Pakistani dishes, but you are not the only person in the world to have preferences!
No one can compare any two dishes because food is always an 'each to one's choice'.
You should accept the fact that you can't demean any one's preference, based on yours.
That will always be only a few people's opinion and will change from person to person.
You are not in any position to judge any cuisine. If you wish to praise something, you are free to do so. But doing it with false and unjustified comparison and criticism is not the right way!
You are free to eat at Pakistani restaurants and praise their cuisine, but you don't have the right to judge what most of the world appreciates for whatever their reasons may be.
