Food Staple #2
Meat is also a very important food staple in Afghanistan which is eaten very often by everyone. There's many different types of meat with many different dishes that are made and served, most times their also severed with rice. We mix meat with many different dishes in are cuisine. Most dishes in Afghanistan have one meat ingredient in the recipe or have a variety of ingredients that could be substitutes and meat is usually one of those substitutes. The Most common dishes that have meat in them are kebob, korma, chapli, shorwa and many more dishes, these dishes could be served with rice, salad, naan etc or just alone.

Food Staple #3
Another big food stable is yogurt that is used by everyone because sometimes it part of important dishes that are eaten daily, Yogurt is the tangy cool taste, which enhances every dish. Afghans add yogurt on top of many dishes, under or as side dish. Most people make their own fresh yogurt at home while others may buy it from stores. Unbelievably yogurt starter is just a few spoonfuls of yogurt. The yogurt kick starts the thickening of the milk proteins, adds tartness and acts as a preservative.Heating the milk to the right temperature is important. The milk must first reach 185° and then it must cool to 110° before you add the yogurt starter, use a digital terminator to check that how most yogurts are made but back home we even use fresh milk. Its part of many dishes like as kadoo, aushak, and aush, its also part of drinks.
Food Stables #1
One of the most common food stables in Afghanistan is rice, meat and yogurt. Most times rice is the most important part of the meal. Therefore it takes lots of time in making them.

Their is allot of different rice dishes such as Challow, Palaw and Bata. Rice is also eaten on allot of different occasions such as weddings, family gatherings, birthdays etc. Rice is could be eaten at breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert but of course in different dishes.

When you have had enough cover the glass with your hand and say "bus" (meaning 'enough')
