So I have set myself a new challenge.
Sat at home, eating whatever was left in the fridge got me thinking. What shall I eat? Thinking about this and watching The Food Network together made me very hungry. Eggs and Potatoes for dinner, just is not good enough. So I needed to set myself a challenge.
So here goes the plan.
Every week, I will cook a dish from a different country. So from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, here it goes. I have decided to tackle this alphabetically. I have looked at a few lists, and one says there are 195 countries, the others say 240 or 251. I will look towards 200+ and see how it goes.
Week 1: Afghanistan.
Thankfully after some searching and friends input via social media i chose the national dish of Afghanistan. I was happy with the dish and country as it is quite similar to Iranian cooking. The dish was the Afghani Pilau, or Kabuli Pilau, after the capital of the country.
The ingredients are all above and the recipe was a slow cooking one, so I started immediately once i got home. Do look at the recipe online, I used this one from SBS and it helped a great deal. Sweet and Savoury this dish was a great start to the challenge.
The ingredients are:
Simple instructions too:
Easy. Do it. But follow the instructions on the link and probably not mine.
Next country = Albania
