Afghan Butternut Squash Borani Kaddu with Pita Bread
Borani Kaddu is considered one of Afghanistan's most popular dishes, and for good reason!
Borani usually refers to a dish that comes with a savory yogurt sauce. Borani is extremely versatile, and can be found in Iranian, Turkish, and Persian cuisines. While Borani Kaddu is traditionally made with pumpkin, Chef Zainab gives this dish her own personal spin and features delicious butternut squash.
Chef Zainab slow cooks thick slices of butternut squash with tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeño peppers. Once the squash is perfectly tender and seasoned, Chef Zainab tops it with the creamy yogurt sauce and chopped cilantro. This dish bursts with savory and tangy flavors while also providing the perfect creamy texture in each bite. To get the full experience of flavors and textures, be sure to scoop up the butternut squash with some tasty pita bread.
