"Punjab is the land of five rivers and is known for its vibrant culture and world-famous Sikh shrine, Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) in Amritsar. Food in Punjab is considered to be a gift of God and treated with respect. The soil of Punjab is ideal for growing wheat, rice, sugarcane, millet, barley, bajra and jowar. Punjabi dishes are majorly made out of fresh produce, dairy and locally grown crops which are high in macro and micronutrients. Onion, tomatoes, garlic and ginger are widely used to prepare various dishes. Some of the other common ingredients are mustard oil, vinegar, zarda (a coloring agent), fenugreek seeds, cumin, dried coriander seeds, and black pepper. Punjabi cuisine contains a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, prepared traditionally." Link - ://bit.ly/3n6aEHH
