Product Description

Product Description

Pakistan has a rich culture and glorious history in cooking. Mughal Muslim Emperors brought about a revolution in the way the people of Subcontinent (now comprising Pakistan and India) used to cook food. Lip smacking foods like seekh kebab, chicken/mutton tikka, etc. have their roots in the cooking methodology liked by these emperors whose recipes are passed down from generations. Persian cuisine has also a deep effect on the eating style of people of this region. Spices and nuts also form a distinct part of the mouthwatering food dishes of Pakistan.

Some of the foods like seekh kebabs, shami kebabs, minced meat samosas, chicken rolls, etc. tastes divine when freshly cooked but can also freeze very well both cooked and uncooked. While some of the items especially pakoras, potato samosa, etc. tastes scrumptious when freshly made but they do not freeze very well.

This eBook is about Pakistani appetizers and snacks. All the recipes contained therein are tried and tested recipes. Do not forget to give Pakistani food, in general, and recipes of this book, in particular, a try. You will surely love it!

If you're big fan of Indian food, you dont't want to miss this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spoilt for choice. 24 Dec 2012
By Mina
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I absolutely love Indian starters and snacks in fact I only use my Indian cookery books for them, this is why this ebook is excellent for me. Instead of buying a whole cookbook and then using it for 2-4 recipes I've got 30 recipes that I use regularly in one place. I've noticed that Pakistani cooking is a little different from Indian cooking, I know that might sound stupid as their different countries, but we usually say Indian for both cuisines which is why I mention this. Pakistani cooking is bit more spicier I find which is why I've not been able to replicate dishes that I've tried at home.

With this ebook I have been able to get the same taste as food I have eaten in friends homes. This is also like a complete party food guide as it also has sweet dishes and also some snacks which you don't get in restaurants but you do have served at parties and gatherings.

The recipes are very delicious and on the whole use "everyday" Indian spices but a few recipes such as Chicken tikka paratha roll has half a tsp papaya paste which you can get from an Indian grocery store or can leave out if you want. Or the Chicken tikka which has whole dried red chillies which you can use chilli powder instead if you want. I live near an Indian grocery store this wasn't a problem for me but I do feel that these are very authentic dishes and wish that this ebook had been out years ago as it would have saved me alot of money and time trying to replicate snacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am impressed 28 Feb 2013
By Mendy Boyd - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am from the south where typical "southern comfort" food is the everyday norm. I suppose that is one of the reasons why I have such a passion now for international foods. You can go to any of my relatives homes and get a traditional southern meal but if you are looking for something different, come to my house. I frequently cook Mexican and Chinese meals but I have never tried any Pakistani recipes.

The recipes presented in Pakistani Appetizers and Snacks are simple and easy to follow. Ingredients used in many of the dishes are coriander seeds, cumin seeds, ginger paste, yogurt, ghee and minced meat. Some of the recipes require some type of pastry to be made and ingredients for those recipes are simple as well.

At the beginning of each recipe is a description of the dish and how it is traditionally used in the culture. Some are celebratory dishes and others are everyday tea-time recipes. They also give indications on what to serve with the recipes. Examples include specific chutneys and types of breads.

Something that really stands out is the inclusion of chicken nuggets and burgers. The author explains how many western fast food restaurants have set up shop locally and that some of those dishes have since become popular among the population.

In summary this cookbook has many USABLE recipes that I will actually try. I recommend it to anyone who, like me, prefer to cook outside their cultural box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cook book 6 Sep 2012

Very short easy cook-book. The recipes are easy to follow although I haven't yet used it. The introductory glossary where the author describes the meaning of the main dish is very informative. I like to cook so I'll give it a try because the dishes look simple enough. I'll recommend this book for those who like to try Asian food.
