Dr Geoffrey Shaw often shares his exploration about the Pakistani culture and food.

In May, he tweeted and shared love for the art of Pakistani cooking and traditional Iftar recipes. The High Commissioner shared with his followers a recipe and video of him preparing ‘Chana Chaat.’

He said: “I tried preparing a traditional Iftar recipe ‘chana chaat’ at home. It is light & refreshing, & a perfect way to celebrate Ramazan. While we practise #socialdistancing this Ramazan, it is good to find small ways to mark this holy month with family and community.”
