I LOVE MY LIFE.
I had halwa puari for breakfast, which was damn greasy and YUMMYY ! Almost every Karachites go for halwa pauri on Sunday. I wait all week for this. I am just wondering there is salan (curry) with this stuff too, so why on this earth we dub it halwa pauri only. And, not just one salan, there are two kinda different salan: one light yellow, less spicy, and one slightly darker than that yellow one, more spicy.
My fav is spicy one....of course.
Then at noon I had Roti with Qaurma (curry) .
Qaurma is curry kinda thing, with pretty strong aroma of so many spices. I think that is why some low life says south Asian smell like curry.
Yeah, we do !!!!
Any problem ?
The spice we use are pretty aromatic. They clung, you know. That is why some smell like curry.
( Listen, I ain't gonna write spicy food all the time. I am feeling weird,OK? so from now on read masala khana instead of spicy food. That is what we dub ...masala = spice, food= khana )
Every one has their own taste, I agree. Tough some times I wonder how do people eat less spicy food. In my whole life I only had less spicy..... pheka khana when I was ill and doctor steer clear of malsa khana still I didn't rein in it. And never do, and never will.
Why I reining in masala?
Wa'Allah ...I will die that day. I can handle any masala. My eyes never water, and I'm never vent the heat through my mouth......even more masala, more better for me, and my life. It has never harmed me. Peeps who has no masala in their food I bet their is no masala in their life too.Pekhi zindagi.
I tell ya one funny thing . McDonald is flop here ( any many others. I don't wanna name them).
Because they have no spice.
When you selling food here make sure you add masala.
Pizza Hut has whole range of Tikka pizza, Behari chicken pizza, Afghani Tikka pizza, and off and on they add desi masla flavors to make this pizza more local.
Lay's flavor s are chicken achari, masala. On the other hand, I ain't a big fan of Lay's.
Maggi noddles are caat paata and masala mirchi.
All my meals are maslay dar. Hot and spicy. If not, I add ca'at masala on top of them. Like when I eat guava, falsay, strawberry, cherry I add ca'at masla, or black pepper with little punch of salt. When I eat frech friese I add so much ca'at masala with salt. It gives taste. With the passage of time this is increasing. I am hooked on pretty bad. I can't have soup or any thing simple.
Five spices I use for sure are red and green chilli powder, cardamom, tamarind, amam chor(mango powder), ginger powder, gooseberry, coriander, turmeric, kalonji, garam masala....etc, etc. List is here .Khair bander keya janay adrak ka sauwad
And how could I for got achaer ( pickles). I also use on nearly everything becasue achar here are not just cucumber pickle. We have varieties of achar, mango achar, carrot achar, berry achar, cholay achar, lemon acaher green chillies achar. Name any veggie or fruit. I can make achar of it.
One of my father friends brought 6 jar of Sikander pickle from Shukkar. Would you believe this is the last jar we are using.
My fav dish Achar Gaust, which means pickle with meat. It's a gravy kinda dish.
Try eating briyani, tikka and qaurma, karhai, achar gaust, niharai, bauti, handi ......high dose of spice with me.You will not die :D.
