KARACHI: Mövenpick Hotel Karachi has organized a 3-day Peshawari Food Festival which is called “Qissa Khuwani Nights”. The event has been organized at the poolside from 29th January 2016 till 31st January 2016.
Qissa Khuwani means the “Bazaar of Storytellers”. Inspired by the historic Qissa Khuwani Bazaar in Peshawar, where traders from various ethnicities used to discuss their stories over a cup of kava at the market’s tea houses, the three-day event invites everyone to experience Pakistan’s early history.
The venue has been traditionally decorated with elements of truck art, rickshaw, Lollywood movie posters, bonfire and Peshawari textures. Folk singers and musicians entertained the guests. Stalls of dry fruits and traditional food inspired by the Qissa Khuwani Bazaar have been placed at the venue.
The food for buffet dinner was prepared by the Peshawari Chefs who are flown in from Namak Mandi (Peshawar): Haji Anaar Gul, Haji Anzar Gul, Haji Shafiullah and Qari Abdul Qayoum. Dishes like Peshawari Murgh Yakhni, Patta Kabab, Namkeen Gosht, Lamb Chops, Chicken Sajji, Peshawari Pullao (Kabuli Style), Qabuli Murg Palau, Saag Panner with Paneer Ki Roti, Chapli Kebab, and Kandhari Nan were served at the buffet.
