Kadu Bouranee – Afghani Sweet Pumpkin

Traditionally, Kadu Bouranee is served as a part of the several side dishes served at a Dastarkhan (the traditional Afghan table spread). One is supposed to eat the pumpkin dish with Afghan bread (Nan-I-Afghan) or one of the many rice preparations.

To eat Kadoo Bourani with Naan, tear a piece of the flat bread and use it as a scoop to pick a morsel of the pumpkin dish and relish the delight. To eat the dish with rice, just mix a small serving of Kadu Bouranee with the rice preparation and enjoy the enhanced flavours of the two dishes.

Apart from these traditional ways of eating Kadoo Borani, the hot pumpkins combined with a cooling yoghurt can also be used as a great appetiser, serve it as a part of the first course to give a touch of fusion to your regular buffet spread.
