One Word Sunday – Dual Treats

A match made for the taste buds!
Because many times, our taste buds demands for something new.

To not only just feast over with whatever is placed on the dinner table but also to enrich mind and soul with the uniqueness of a local cuisine.

And speaking of cuisines, what you will find in Pakistan’s cuisine will certainly force your taste buds to beg for more.

This past summer, I enjoyed one dish in particular, which was prepared in my home by my wife and my sister-in-law.

This is looks like a plain fried flatbread but it is stuffed with spicy mashed potatoes. Commonly known as Aalo Ka Paratha, you can enjoy it with any kind of sauce, pickle, chutney or ever plain curd.

But, at my home, we love to eat it with juicy mangoes!

That’s right!

Mangoes are the best summer treat in Pakistan and they are consumed wholeheartedly by everyone.

This may look strange to you but I assure you that the moment you place a bite of both in your mouth, your taste buds will be forever thankful to you πŸ™‚

    That looks very tasty. Not a combination I have tried, but I can see that I must!

      I’m sure there are many Pakistani restaurants in London where they serve this. If not, then may be at an Indian restaurant.

      This was totally homemade as my family prefers to try out something new once in a week. The restaurants are open here and people are flocking them like crazy, which is certainly alarming.

    Ahhh, that aloo ka paratha was one of my favourite dish when I was really little but I like the sugary paratha more.

      Interestingly, I used to eat those sugary parathas in my childhood but I wasn’t so fond of them. I love to these parathas with green chili chutney, more than mangoes πŸ™‚
