Welcome to Food Explorers’ “From the Streets of Mumbai to Lahore”, presented in form of a Pop-Up Dinner, and featuring the creative culinary skills of our Cuisine Expert Amna Omer.

When:  Saturday, 29th September, 2018 from 1900 hours onwards (this dinner was originally scheduled for earlier this year but had to be postponed due to family commitments)

Where:  Pizzeria Tutto Pasta, Kurze Strasse 17, 67063 Ludwigshafen am Rhein

What:  This 4-course menu is inspired by the street food culture from different cities and regions of India and Pakistan.  There are many similarities and differences, but one common thread binds these dishes – authenticity.

The Menu

If you have yet to try an Indian salad, awaken your tastebuds with some tangy, spicy yet light “Bombay Bhel” from the streets of Mumbai. “Bhel” was born as a Gujarati dish but evolved into a meal that could be tailored for tastes across India.  Jains eat their bhel with tomatoes; Bengalis add red pepper and mustard oil to theirs.  Irregardless of the region, prepare yourselves for an explosion of colors, textures and flavors!

Up next is “Vada Pav”.  It is believed that there is no better place than a roadside stall to enjoy this authentic Marathi food.  Maharashtra runs on this Indian version of burger.  It is every Mumbaikar’s take-and- go quick bite.  Everyone, from students to elite businessmen, flocks to these vada pav stalls almost daily.   One bite of this and you won’t look at a burger the same way again!

For our third course, Amna serves us “Dhaba-style Chicken Karahi“.  Never have you tasted a curry as good as the one you have eaten at a “dhaba” along the roadside in the middle of nowhere.  “Karahi” refers to a bowl-shaped frying pan with two handles, and it is also the name of a popular Pakistani curry.  Vegetarians fret not – we offer “Chana Karahi” (with chickpeas) as an alternative!

As for dessert – no worries, Amna won’t let us leave without a heavenly treat for the perfect finishing touch to our street food meal!
