Kashmiri cuisine has evolved over hundreds of years. The first major influence was the food of the Kashmiri Pandits, the Hindus of the valley.  , Kashmir and its food has been strongly influenced by the cuisines of Central Asia, Persia, Middle East and Afghanistan.  Kashmiri food is  very elaborate and usually uses a lot of yogurt, oils and spices as such turmeric, but avoids onion, garlic, tomatoes, and chicken.

Chickpea, also garbanzo bean, chana (north India), is an edible legume.   Chickpeas are high in protein and one of the earliest cultivated vegetables; 7,500-year-old remains have been found in the Middle East.

The name "chickpea" traces back through the French chiche to Latin cicer. The Oxford English Dictionary cites "Chick-pea" in the mid-18th century;  the original word in English was chich, found in print in English in 1388, and taken directly from French.

is a round flatbread made of white flour.  Naan is a staple accompaniment to hot meals in India.
