Karachi is the the most populous city in Pakistan with over 20-million people — a bustling commercial hub and port, with a vibrant, cosmopolitan food scene. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is a province in the north of Pakistan, famous for its towering mountains, lush green valleys, mighty rivers, beautiful lakes & amazing wildlife. Together they represent the breadth and depth of Pakistan’s diverse landscape.
Join Chef Nasir Zuberi on a culinary journey from Karachi to Khyber, featuring popular dishes from across the country. Inspired by his mother’s kitchen, Nasir uses only fresh ingredients and homemade spice blends to bring you this unique menu of authentic Pakistani dishes rarely seen in Toronto.
Dal Ka Soup
Dal (lentils) are an integral part of every home in Pakistan, cooked in myriad different ways, but especially popular in winter as a warm and comforting soup. For this traditional recipe, a mix of moong & masoor dals are cooked with onion, tomato, celery, red capsicum, fresh garlic & ginger and topped with a special seasoning of roasted cumin and mint.
Murgh Hara Masala
Hara (green) masala is a distinctive green “curry” made with fresh green herbs is an exquisite dish rarely seen in restaurants. Chicken quarters are marinated overnight in yogurt, coriander, mint, green chillies, and a homemade spice blend then finished with fresh ginger
A karahi is a type of cooking pot, sort of a thick wok, that is widely used in Pakistan; it lends its name to a variety of different dishes that are cooked in it (similar to how tagines, casseroles or paellas inherited their names). Karahi aloo (potatoes) is a vegetarian dish cooked with tomatoes, ginger & garlic with homemade freshly ground spices & garnished with fresh ginger & coriander.
Both dishes are served with matar pulao, a pilaf of basmati rice studded with green peas, scented with cinnamon, green cardamom and saffron, along with a cucumber and mint yogurt raita.
Khubani Ka Meetha
This traditional dessert is a kind of apricot “trifle” composed of a puree of dried apricots layered with vanilla custard and garnished with almonds.
