A tasty Pakistani dish called Siri Paya has been included in the list of the world’s best stew dishes by TasteAtlas. It is ranked 47th out of the top 50 stews in the world in the list of 2024 Best Stew rankings.

This hearty stew is made with slow-cooked lamb or goat meat and a mix of yummy spices. The name itself means “head and feet” because those are the tasty parts used in the dish. The literal translation of Siri Paya is ‘head and feet’. Made with a combination of spices, the dish is cooked slowly to get the maximum flavors of all the ingredients. When cooked, the dish is garnished with garlic and lemon and served with hot Tandoor naans.
