  • Nowhere on this whole planet will you find a country so rich in culture; with breathtaking nature and equally beautiful people. Each province is unique in its own way and in each you will find all the colors of life vibrantly displayed. It is said that Pakistanis are the most hospitable people and will welcome friends and travelers into their homes as they do their brothers. I am fortunate enough to have traveled all over our magnificent Pakistan and to experience this first hand. Diets repeatedly go out the window as women are the first to fall prey to the aromatic and delightful desi offerings such as a steaming hot ‘chargha’ or a bowl of ice cold ‘falooda’. Being a Lahori I have inherited the love for all kinds of foods and like a true desi, I opt for Biryani over Chinese honey chilli chicken.

  • Let’s explore Pakistani specialties. If you are looking for a true desi breakfast indulge in halwa poori or siri pae helped down with a refreshing lassi. For lunch opt for nihari and naan. For dinner try some karahi ghosht. Finally satisfy your sweet tooth with sohn halwa from Multan or barfi from Sialkoti.

  • Heading to Balochistan the one dish that I absolutely love is Sajji which is available in both mutton and chicken. It consists of a whole animal marinated only in salt and served with either sweet or salty rice. Other notable Balochi dishes are kaak otherwise known as pathar ki riti which is made by flattening the dough over a preheated stone. Dampukht and khaddi kabab is another delicacy made by cooking the whole lamb with ice in its stomach.

  • Enjoy the salty sea breeze Sindh offers and indulge in the famous Sindhi Biryani or Sai Bhaji. Finally going north we come to Khyber Pakhtun Khua previously known as NWFP. Like the food street in Lahore the capital of this province has Namak Mandi which is famous for its mutton tikka, mutton karahi, mutton chapli kabab, kabuli pulao, peshwari naan, seekh kabab and kandahari naan. If you’re tired of touring the entire country, visit Dera Ghazi Khan where all the four provinces meet.

  • Back in Punjab, while I was recently surfing through TV channels, I came across a cooking programme in which the chef was preparing chapli kebab. Far from a cooking expert I thought it best to leave the cooking to my mother and asked her to make some kebabs for me. Eating those kebabs took me back to the time when we were in Peshawar relishing those mouth watering chapli kababs from Namak Mandi. Being originally from Mardan, chapli kebabs have come to be associated with Peshawar, the capital of Khayber Pakhtun Khua. I doubt anyone out there is unfamiliar with this dish, but to those few who are, here is some brief information about this delicious kebab.
