In India, right up to the time of Shivaji, Pratap, and Guru Govind Singh, the traditional royal flag was some shade of bhagwa (safforan) or kesari. This was the case in the days of the Mahabharata also.

I think that it is a dish not used the the muslims and the sindhis and sardars come from borders which have a heavy population of the muslims, so beef and mutton might be costlier.
