An ordinary staple food is transformed into exotic cuisine once it is prepared and served with style. And masalas (spices) play a major role in giving food that peculiar flavour.

Pakistani cuisine is mostly curry and masala based and Bawarchi is all set for THT food fest.

“This is first time Pakistani cuisine is being presented at the food fest,” said Sanjaya Nagiya of the restaurant.

Biryani and Kathi roll are loved by the city denizens already, so it is expected to be a huge hit at the fest. It spicy, tingly taste will make the Nepali palates crave for more.

Biryani, for instance is a dish of long-grained aromatic rice combined with mutton or chicken and a mixture of characteristic spices.

Kathi kabab roll are parathas filled with spicy meat fillings of either chicken or mutton and onion bathed in lime, will sure see some long queues on the day.
