North Western Frontier cuisine

The North-West Frontier was a province of British India and now in Pakistan. It was formed in 1901, and later on, it changed its name in 2010 as Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 

Although the province brought strategic importance during the 2nd World War, its cuisine is broadly known for its simplicity, clarity in presentation, and use of fragrant spices. Today, the food in this region shares sameness among the styles in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Punjab. Below is our offered NWF food.

  • Snack specials: Start your buffet with our light and easy to eat snacks.
    • Panipuri (gol gappa): Puri is a deep-fried crisp crepe that is soaked in pani. Pani is a mixture of flavoured water, chutney, chili powder, chaat masala, potato mash, onion and chickpeas. This food is a bite-sized, ball-shaped snack.
    • Chaat: One of the most popular snacks in India as it can be bought elsewhere. It has a variety of versions that are seen in roadside food stalls or food carts. But, its main ingredients are a mixture of potato pieces, fried bread, gram or chickpeas, and tangy-salty spices. Here in Zaica, we have different types of chaat, such as Aloo chaat, Aloo tikki, Bedmi, and Papri chaat.
  • Tandoori specials: Our wide range of meat is prepared by soaking in a mixture of yogurt, spices, garlic, honey, and lemon. Then, they are roasted over a charcoal fire in tandoor.

  • Dal specials: Unlike with Tikka and Curry dishes, Dal food does not require pre-soaking. But, this broad dish mainly uses dried, split pulses (lentils, peas, and beans) that are simmered for many hours. Zaica’s Dal specials are in the forms of soups, meats, and finger snacks.
