Taste And Flavour Of Pakistan Festival Opens

The four day “Taste and Flavour of Pakistan” festival was opened at the Millennium Hotel in Abu Dhabi Tuesday night by Pakistan Ambassador Khursheed Ahmed Junego.  The festival offers a sampling of Pakistan’s cuisine known for its spices, rich flavor, and aroma.  Ambassador Junejo described Pakistan’s cuisine as a fusion of three Asian regions – Central, Middle East, and South Asia.  He said “Pakistani cuisine is often spicy and known for its richness and flavour”

Bilal Khan Pasha, Commercial Counselor at the Pakistani Embassy is organizing the festival.  He said they have selected certain culinary hot dishes that are usually not available at UAE hotels so “we have specially called chefs from Pakistan as well as chefs based in the UAE to come over here and prepare food for the next four days.”  Dishes at the festival include tangy palak gosht, pakodakarhi, sajji, chicken masala, kebabs, nirhari, mango pickles, and extremely hot chicken biryani.
