Cooking Around the World: Pakistan

Almost caught up! I've posted recipes, but not the country write up. Sorry! Last week we traveled, in our Cooking Around the World Adventure, into the Ps. First up: Pakistan.

A few fun facts...

  • The official name for Pakistan is the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
  • The name Pakistan means ‘land of the pure’ in Persian and Urdu.
  • The national flower of Pakistan is the jasmine.
  • The currency of Pakistan is the Pak Rupee.
  • Pakistan is the world’s second-largest producer of chickpeas behind India.
  • A baby is born in Pakistan every seven seconds.
What we ate...

As our starter, we made: Aloo Tiki

And for dinner, we made: Koftay

I actually liked the first dish so much that I even made it for breakfast this morning. And served it with eggs.

Well, these Global Table Ambassadors are signing off for now. We'll be headed to Panama next!
