The Best Pakistani Dishes

1. Beef Balti

Balti dishes are not strictly curries. Ok, they are, but if we’re getting technical – the technique and specifically the Balti Pan is what makes it different. Balti translates as ‘bucket’, but unsurprisingly this name didn’t take off as a name in English speaking countries.

5. Aloo Palak

Fresh spinach washed and painstakingly chopped then simmered for hours in oil, spices and water before potatoes are added to fry in the mix.  So tender and creamy that it is hard to believe this magical dish is plain old spinach.

6. Kahari Chicken

There are a lot of tomatoes and they have to be cooked down and reduced so this dish takes some time to make. It is best with boneless chicken and the end result is truly divine.

7. Wadi Aloo

Wadiya have a distinct flavour. They’re spicy, earthy, and the hing (asafoetida) give them a sharp flavour. Pair that with the mildness of potatoes and wadi aloo is an amazing dish.
