I hope you enjoy it and i’ll post their social media handles down below after the read.
Mantu beef dumplings
Mantu beef dumplings is a very well known Afghan dish that is mostly served during special occasions.
The first process of making mantu is first making mini pockets of flour. The pockets should be really thin. Minced meat is then cooked with a wide array of spices and a generous amount of onions, all this are added for flavour.
Then the dumplings dough is then filled with the already cooked minced meat and it steamed for a while.When ready lentils is placed on top of the mantu and garnished with fresh coriander.
It is best served with either yoghurt sauce, hummus or split pea sauce.The mantu was appealing , tasty and memorable. The yoghurt quite complimented the dish, you can never go wrong with it as a dip.
Paneer curry is basically cottage cheese cooked with different vegetables , spices and it is smothered with coconut milk and served with naan or rice.
I was a bit skeptical at first to try the paneer because I have never before heard that cheese could be used to make curry. The whole dish was absolutely great as the chunks of the paneer were soft and the flavours rendered my taste buds with the much needed excitement that I wanted.
The funniest thing happened while I was taking the picture, the chunks of the cheese are white even after cooking which of course has a bit orange colour to it. But every single time I was shooting the colour of the dish would only appear orange. So don’t let the pictures fool you.
Well this brings us to an end of Afghan house feature. I can’t thank enough the owners of Afghan for letting me do this post and for being kind to me.
