Favorite Food of Pakistan

Pakistani people are food lovers. Everything we do is associated with eating. When we go out to someone’s place, we eat When we hang out with friends, we eat Weddings are all about “When will the feast start” You stay in and watch a movie, you order food or get a take out You visit family, you eat Our food is delicious and amazing. I love Pakistani cuisine. It’s the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be!!! Here are 10 things I love about Pakistani food: 1. Cook everything Be it an animal or a plant (as long as it’s halal), we’re not going to let it go to waste! My in-laws cook some weird plant leaves that grow in their back yard and call it “bhaaji”. My mother’s begin drooling at the very mention of kidney. 2. Our spices That’s where the taste comes from. What is food with no spices? People say Pakistani food is too spicy. I would agree with them, it’s meant to be. That is where the taste comes from. Pakistanis were born to fry our tongues. 3. The Bread There are many kind of bread here which are mainly served with curry such as Chapati, Plain naan, kulcha, khameeri roti, til wali roti, sheermal, taaftan, puri, kachori and paratha. There are some new variety of breed that are very popular now like cheese naan, kandhari naan, pizza naan etc. 4. Nihari Nihari is very popular in Pakistan. It is eaten occasionally with friends like when some friends need to go out to have some fun. The thing they enjoy most is eating nihari in a restaurant with freshly made naan. Fried brain is added in nihari to enhance the flavor. 5. The BBQ Bar b que is famous around the world. It is a dish made with any kind of meat like chicken, mutton and lamb etc. which is cooked with coal smoke. Soft, tender pieces of meat in amazing mouthwatering, hot spices served with chapati and paratha will definitely be on my menu. 6. The Tea Tea is served after a meal. When a visitor comes he is served with tea as a token for hospitality after a meal. There are mainly two kinds of tea in Pakistan one is green tea which is also known as Kawa and other is milk tea which is also known as Doodh Pati by the locals. 7. Mithai Just like our use of spices, we are accused of having very sweet desserts. What’s the point of sweets if they aren’t sweet?! Don’t like sweets? Don’t eat them! Leave me to smack on my bowl of cham chams and rabri! 8. Halwa puri Breakfast Nothing is more delicious and appealing than halwa puri. It is a combination of thick potato curry, semolina desserts (Halwa), and fried breed (Puri). This breakfast is made not only in Pakistan but India also. It is very popular and it is eaten mostly in the weekend where the whole family is together to enjoy it taste.
