Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

Yes, they don't eat fish either ... One of my friend is always presented with a fish when he explicitly mentions being a veg.. dunno why people feel vegetarians eat fish it surely isn't a vegetable!

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

perfect. I'm going to ask a friend if she'd like to join me. If so we'll sort out the date and I'll let you know. If not I'll come on my own!

Menu 2 (October19th)

Chicken karahi (Traditional chicken cooked with onions, garlic, ginger)
Are you sure there are onions in chicken karahi?

And what is a traditional chicken? One that wears a Shalwar kameez, burqa and all?

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

The recipe I'm using on Tuesday doesn't have onions in it.

And yes, you are dead right: that's exactly what traditional chicken is!

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

Thanks for clarification.

Maybe you can tell your class that, they can add onions to Karahi chicken recipe to make it Bhuna chicken. You know, for added value.

I guess a chicken that wears western clothes and not a burqa will not exactly be Halal.

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

The word 'bhuna' actually refers to the process of cooking where the meat and spices are allowed to stew gently for a long while. It has nothing to do with onions.

Ohh! Stroke of true genius!

Then I guess the word "karahi" actually refers to the cooking utensil in which you cook?

Same goes for "Balti" then?

BTW... "bhuna" is not "stewing" gently for a long while, but more like frying on high temperature with frequent stirring. Stewing gently for a long/short while is more like "dum."

Hmmmm...

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

Yes, you are truly brilliant and catch on fast. A 'Karahi' is a type of wok and does not refer to any ingredient in the food. Likewise with 'balti', which literally means bucket, again not having anything to do with onions or tomatoes.

'bhuna' just means cooking it down thoroughly whether you are cooking meat or spices, 'dum' just means putting the pot on a low flame and covering it.

Brilliant. The logic is flawless!
Thank you for the explaination.

I will try to pursuade some of my girlfriends to attend your course in Geneva, might even pay for their trip. A small price to pay for amazing food full of flavour right at my doorstep. I never trust the Indian restaurants anyway.

Nothing goes down better then White wine with some traditional Chicken karahi.
