Khousay (Co-Say)

Khousay pronounced “Co-Say” is a known Memon dish in Karachi, Pakistan. Memon’s are a sub sect group of Muslims from the Indian subcontinent, whose name came from the root word “Mu’min,” which means believer. Their lineage traces back to Sindh, India and later they had migrated to Gujrat, India. When the partition happened between India and Pakistan, many of them moved to settle in Karachi, Pakistan. A big city with lots of food and culture, and where many of my relatives still reside.
