festival; rice and meat are staple in every Afghani household(Source: Express Photo by Amit Mehra) Related News Hashim Shirzad still remembers an incident from his childhood involving his father who was a chef of some note in their native Kabul “My mother was cooking something on our ground floor and my father and I were on the third storey Suddenly my father leaned out of the window and shouted out that the meat was going to stick to the grill causing my mother to turn the sikhri over When I asked him how he knew he just smiled and said by the time I was his age I would have his nose” Shirzad’s father must be proud now that his son is a senior chef at the luxuriant Inter-Continental hotel in Kabul Not that Shirzad has had it easy Apart from working under his father he worked with a kasai (butcher) and worked in Dubai and Pakistan before returning home to cook He still butchers his own meat “The integrity of the meat is of the first importance” says Shirzad In India as part of a cultural exchange Shirzad and three of his countrymen two chefs and an administrator are at the ITC Maurya in Delhi for a 10-day festival celebrating Afghani cuisine after which they return with a similarly assembled Indian team to the Inter-Continental in Kabul for a 10-day showcase of Indian food “The Indian High Commission contacted us for this exchange; it has taken three months to plan” says Zubin S Songdwala General Manager ITC Maurya Afghani food given the mountainous terrain of its regions is high on protein with beans chicken and mutton being the mainstay of the cuisine apart from a massive variety in breads and rice “We have many varieties of breads which are available in the country Since Afghani breads are only made in their tandoors (which are horizontal as opposed to their vertical Indian counterparts) and as most homes cannot afford the space required by these baking behemoths most families buy their breads from the market” says Shirzad Meanwhile sella rice a variant of basmati is as widely consumed and is the traditional component of Kabuli Pulao (the Afghans’ national dish) among other rice dishes And the Afghanis love their rice “There’s a tiny restaurant in Kabul which is famous for only serving rice without any kind of salan korma or gosht They just serve plain rice And there are people queuing up from the morning to early in the afternoon by when the rice finishes” says Shirzad Given the country’s distance from the traditional spice route Afghanis have never used too many condiments “There are no spices in my home no masalas” says Shirzad adding that this is common among Afghans They use salt and green chillies and that’s about it The main flavour in Afghan food comes from the grill whether wood or charcoal as does the colour Indeed most Afghan houses still do not employ gas or other petroleum products for cooking preferring the traditional fuels of wood and coal Not that things haven’t progressed in the country “Mashahallah Afghanistan has seen great progress in the last decade The Taliban regime seemed determined to wipe out our historical heritage Now the new democratic government is re-establishing our culture Earlier we had no electricity never mind other infrastructure Today we do with many projects in the pipeline to improve our lives With inter-cultural projects like these we can learn from our neighbours and perhaps teach them a thing or two” says Shirzad In any case when you talk about India Shirzad lights up “The first thing my friends said when I told them I’m going to India was to find Shah Rukh and get a picture taken with him” laughs Shirzad Apparently pictures of Shah Rukh the other Khans and the galaxy of Bollywood adorn Afghanistan from taxis to billboards Kabuli Pulao

"Punjab-centric" front which may contest the 2017 Assembly polls in the state Many political outfits including the Democratic Swaraj Party the Apna Punjab the Jai Jawan Jai Kisan Party the Swabhiman Party along with former AAP leader HS Kingra and several academicians and volunteers joined hands with Gandhi The suspended AAP MP from Patiala said the name of the front will be announced in 10-15 days "There is a need for a regional outfit in Punjab which can guard its interests on the lines of what the AIADMK TMC BJD do in their respective states" Gandhi told the media Representational image Reuters Asked if the front will contest the polls he said that will depend on its strength in a particular Assembly constituency Gandhi hit out at the other political parties including the Congress and the BJP for "failing to protect the interests of Punjab" over the years He acknowledged that the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) was the only regional party in the state but alleged that they too have "reneged on the interest and the future of Punjab" Gandhi also lashed out at the AAP for "ignoring the real volunteers while distributing poll tickets" Ruling out his rapprochement with the party he alleged that there was "no democracy" and it had become a "one man party" hinting at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal "Leaders from Punjab are being sidelined as ‘subedars’ from Delhi are running the show Leaders like Sucha Singh Chhotepur and Kanwar Sandhu are being humiliated A high-command culture is prevailing in the party now" he claimed and hit out at Kejriwal saying "If my wish prevails I will throw him out of it" Gandhi said he had assessed the political situation in the state around three months back and had there been an election then the AAP could have formed the government in Punjab as it was "far ahead" of the Congress and the SAD-BJP combine Asked if he will resign from the AAP he answered in the negative saying he had neither floated a "political party" nor joined any other "They can throw me out but I will not resign as MP" he said Gandhi said he had told the AAP leadership to either withdraw his suspension or expel him from the party "But they are not taking any decision Maybe they are scared of losing votes" he added Asked if his front would approach Navjot Singh Sidhu the cricketer-turned-politician who recently severed ties with the BJP he said "If he contacts us we will think over it" Gandhi and another MP Harinder Singh Khalsa were suspended from the primary membership of the AAP for "indiscipline and anti-party activities" last year By: Express
