Bilal Khan Pasha, Commercial Counselor at the Pakistani Embassy is organizing the festival.  He said they have selected certain culinary hot dishes that are usually not available at UAE hotels so “we have specially called chefs from Pakistan as well as chefs based in the UAE to come over here and prepare food for the next four days.”  Dishes at the festival include tangy palak gosht, pakodakarhi, sajji, chicken masala, kebabs, nirhari, mango pickles, and extremely hot chicken biryani.
