Eat This Now: Kadu at Afghan Grill or Nora Restaurant


It’s the most wonderful time of the year: pumpkin-eating season. To kick-start your journey to pumpkin nirvana, I suggest you head to Afghan Grill or Nora Restaurant, both owned and cheffed by Matt Pikar, and order his version of Kadu. Pikar boils and then sautés thick pucks of pumpkin and covers them with slightly sweet and spicy yogurt meat sauce laced with onions, tomatoes, garlic, cloves, turmeric, cardamom, and mint.

I’ve removed my sad cell phone photograph from the top, but if you would like to get a glimpse of the dish, it is below.
