If you aren’t familiar with Pakistani dishes, think about things like Aloo Chaap (gold potatoes mixed with onions, garlic, and spiced beef served with seasoned yogurt and herbs), Potato Stuffed Nan, and more. Click here to see the full menu with Nanjiani and Gordon’s take on the dishes.

From the film: The Big Sick is based on the real-life courtship between Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Kumail Nanjiani) and grad student Emily Gordon (Zoe Kazan), who fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family’s expectations, and his true feelings.
