Sample weekly dinner menu 3. Deciding what to make for dinner can be exhausting. Here's a Pakistani weekly dinner menu plan that will help you decide 'what's for dinner' or as we say locally 'aaj kia pakayein'
Monday – Aloo Bhurta.
Start off the week with a masaledaar vegetarian recipe, and make sure to store the leftovers to make a meal for another day.
Tuesday – Dahi Chicken.
Marinate chicken in yoghurt and spices the night before and cook it in the morning. Can be made with boneless or bone-in chicken.
Wednesday – Aloo Paratha with Loki Raita & Tamatar Chutney.
Use the leftover bhurta to make crispy aloo paratha’s and serve with a refreshing loki raita and spicy tamatar chutney. Recipe HERE.
Thursday – Chukander Gosht.
Time for some meat this week, and a delicious earthy combination is pairing it with beetroot or chukander.
Friday – Mutton Pulao
Friday calls for a special meal featuring aromatic mutton pulao with green chutney raita. YUM!
Saturday – Khaosuey
The weekend is the perfect time to invite family over and host a khaosuey party. Just keep it one dish, and increase the number of condiments so people can make their perfect bowl. Recipe HERE.
Sunday – Kitchen closed.
Leftovers or take-away.
