Karachi Chili

Karachi is the largest and southern most city of Pakistan. Pakistan and Texas both have very similar climates and cultures. Umair immigrated from Karachi to DFW and found a thriving Pakistani community. In both cultures, beef is big as are chilies. Mesquite, a useful native in Texas is an ecological weed in Pakistan. Russian olives from Pakistan are ecological weeds in Texas. Both are eaten in their native countries. We wonder, as these communities grow what can they learn from each other? What could a Pak-Tex cuisine look like? For example, Texmati rice was developed in collaboration between Texas and Pakistan and is still grown near Katy. Our team will attempt to create a Pak-Tex chili as an homage to immigration and the culinary mixing that comes as a result.
