Mughlai cuisine is referred to as cooking in Mughal style. The development area of Mughlai cuisine was in the Indian subcontinent during the Mughal empire. It is linked with both Indian and Persian culture. In Mughlai cuisine, you will find a mixture of both flavours. It is also vastly linked with central Asian cuisine or Islamic cuisine. As we know, the Mughals were Muslims. So, naturally, their religion affected their style of cooking. However, it is not only restricted to one religion. We all know that India is a melting pot of all the people, cultures and religions. So, you will see the same effect in Mughlai food too. It got inspired by our local cuisine and adapted the cooking methods and spices. After all these inspiration and transformations, it became a new style that we now know as Mughlai cuisine. It has also influenced the local cuisines of Bangladesh, Pakistan and north India. Also, you will be able to see the influence of Turkish cuisine on Mughlai dishes.
