Amuse Bouche: Spinach, Pakistani Walnut and Yoghurt Soup
Polo remains an extremely popular sport in the Northern regions of Pakistan. Mothers and wives of polo players will sit before matches, cracking open freshly harvested walnuts. These oily, earthy flavoured walnuts are lovingly offered to players pre- match, to build strength, invigorate and improve agility on the field
Starter: Mango Sweetcorn Chaat, Green Chutney, Tamarind, Sweetened Curd
Shandur is an area situated in Gilgit Biltistan. Every year since 1936, in the month of July, Shandur hosts the historical Shandur Polo Festival. An event which attracts people from far and wide, the array of street food available to visitors is extraordinary. This dish, is an assault to the senses, paying homage to the street food that celebrates the Polo festival today.
Main Course: Deboned Masala Roast Chicken, Roasted Grapes, Vermicelli Rice, Spiced Stuffing, Gravy
At the time of the Raj, tired Polo players would often enjoy a roast dinner after the match. The food served in local Club houses and Gymkhanas was a unique amalgamation of Anglo-Indian recipes, cooking techniques and flavours. These recipes from the Colonial era have been lost through time, but remembered today at this banquet.
Dessert: Rose Kheer with Cardamom and Jaggery syrup soaked Golden Sultanas and Apricots, Candied Nuts and Flowers
In northern Pakistan, festivities are marked with sweet food. Kheer, a famous rice pudding is prepared slowly overnight until the milk and rice slowly thicken. The magic of time takes it course and humble ingredients become more than the sum of their component parts. Floral scents, cardamom and jaggery embellish this memorable dessert, which has certainly been given the MasterChef treatment today
Guests will be served a welcome drink and wine with lunch. A bar will be available for additional drinks.
