Chana Papri Chaat
Chaats are a very popular street food in Pakistan and Northern India, prepared in countless different styles. They are a unique melange of favours, textures and colours: crunchy and tender, tangy and spicy, sweet and savoury, all at once. This particular combination features soft chickpeas, and crispy papri (fried wheat crackers), topped with diced fresh tomato & onion, sprinkled with a distinctive chaat masala seasoning and chutni (a tangy-sweet tamarind sauce).
This boneless chicken curry, cooked in a onion & tomato base, is seasoned with a special achari spice blend, which is also widely used to flavour a different kinds of South Asian fruit and vegetable ‘pickle’ condiments. This combination of coarsely crushed fennel, mustard, nigella and fenugreek seeds adds it’s unique flavour to the curry.
Aloo Bhaji Karahi
This Pakistani-style vegetable stir fry gets its name from the karahi, the large, heavy wok-like, round iron pan it is traditionally cooked in. Green beans, potatoes, and peas are cooked with tomato and onion gravy, seasoned with a blend of roasted cumin, coriander, nigella, and mustard seeds.
Both dishes are served with aromatic basmati rice, scented with cinnamon, green cardamom and saffron, along with a cucumber and mint yogurt raita.
These traditional cookies, a kind of shortbread, are very popular in Pakistan, usually served with tea and as dessert. These delicate, eggless cookies are enriched with almonds and ghee, and scented with fragrant cardamom.
