No gravy in the UAE?

I love gravy. Fried chicken is never good without it. However, on a trip to the UAE last year, I was disappointed to find they didn't have gravy in restaurants there, even at KFC. I asked around and was told there's no gravy in the middle east. I did chance upon on that served something they call gravy - a Jollibee. However, the name is the only similarity. I don't even know what it was they served me. Does anyone know why there's no gravy in the UAE? Is this the case all over the Middle East?

Blimey no gravy? We have gravy with everything! I live in the UK and couldn't imagine there being no gravy! We have it with chips, potatoes, meat everything! I wonder why that is... I shall be keeping an eye out to see if anyone can enlighten us on this mystery!

Yep, that's what I'm looking for - enlightenment. It's not like gravy's illegal, is it? From what I know, you use beef stalk to make gravy. And, there's a lot of British people in the UAE. I wonder what they think of that. Ketchup is just not as good on fried chicken.
