EP 9 Pakistani Lunch with Usman

In this episode of Anna Gare’s Cab Fare, I’m in Sydney and meet Usman, a young cab driver who hails from Pakistan. I’ll learn how to make his flavour-packed chicken kofta and create the perfect fruit and floral lassi to go with it. And later, I meet up with Usman and his roommate for the ultimate taste-test.

Usman's Chicken Kofta

Perfect for snacking, or a meal in itself. The trick with these chicken koftas is making your own garam masala. It’s so simple and makes all the difference. I always make a big batch and store in a jar so it’s ready to use!

Onion and Carrot Pakora with Mint Yoghurt Dipping Sauce

No Pakistani feast would be complete without a pakora. I love making these for my family, but the hardest thing is letting them cool enough before they’re all snapped up.

Strawberry and Rose Lassi

Who doesn’t love a lassi? This traditional yoghurt drink comes in every flavour you could think of and I’ve teamed up some fresh Australian strawberries with a beautiful rose syrup that will lift this to the next level.
