Definition: Mughlai cuisine is a result of the Mughal rule in India. Food was rich and cooked with aromatic spices, nuts and dried fruits. Most Indian restaurants interpret this as mild to medium-hot cream and nut based gravies, rice dishes with lots of nuts and dried fruits and rich creamy desserts. Expect (in a good restaurant) spices like saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg etc. Gravies are usually abundant in Mughlai dishes so they go well with rice dishes and breads alike.
