Pakistani Popular Dishes! and little talk about weather and eating habits

     

       Dear   Friends !



      Hope  and   pray     that    all   of   you   are    enjoying    the   ventures   of   life   and   changing   

colors   of   weather . Though    temperature    is  19   to  38  within  24   hours   now  days   still  i   

am   so   happy  that   the  utter   heat   wave  has  passed  which  was  above  50  in  june  july .


Today   i   am   going   to   share   about   Pakistani   food   which  is   famous   for  being  spicy   and  little  bit  oily   too. But   positive  about    it  is  that   physically   activities   keep   the   people  fit    and  healthy  as  people  here  in  my  home   land   are  quite   hard worker .

Being  eastern  country  Pakistan   gets   lots   of   sun   and   all   the   four   beautiful   seasons   come 
 with  all   their   excellence   and   grace. Each   season    for   atleast   2  months    with   extreme   condition   and   2 

 months  of   Pleasant   weather   before  and  after  each   extremeness .So   that   is   why   people   

are    mostly   active   and   fresh   with   their   happy   stomachs . Because    diversity  of  weather  keep   them    lively    and   depression   free  .  More   than   half   of   population    lives  in  villages  
and  experience   healthy   ways   of   life     which   are   though   tough   yet   peaceful   due   to  simplicity   they   have .


Pakistani  eat   three    meals  just  like  other   people   around  the  world   including  Evening  Tea 

 with   snacks   or   cookies   which   are     essential   for    kids   and   young   people   particularly . Mostly  food  is  eaten  as  a  gathering  of   family .

In     summer   sun   rises  almost  around  5am  and  sets  also   around  5pm.  In   winters   sun   peek   around  6   am  and   set   also  around  6   pm.


People  here   prefer   hot   meals  and  tea   is  most   popular  hot   drink   throughout  the   country . Guest   are   asked   to  be   server   cold?  or   Hot ?  and  answer   is    88%   is  hot   which   means  Tea .

Now   with   the   help   of   google   image   i   will  show   you   some   most   popular   dishes   of   my   country

  Biryani  ,daal  and dry meat pieces

      Beef   meat  balls called    (koftyy)



           Veggies    snacks

                    Gram  spicy fried


                                Most  fav dish mine on whole planet  daal rice


                        Pizza ,my kids love it

           Essential  with  each  dish     traditional   bread


            chicken  rolls




                                 Lady   finger
            Cauliflower  dish
                                                           
 Mutton dish

                                                               veggies  with eggs

         Coriander ,mint  and salt   essential  with  lunch  specially

  2. Some delicious looking food you've shared. My favourites would be the vegetarian dishes. I think the way of life in a village must be simpler with everyone working hard, but it's good to know that nutritious food provides energy. wishing you a blessed evening and good days ahead.

  8. This food looks delicious! We have a local restaurant that serves Pakistani food. I absolutely love it (though I do not know how authentic it is). I love spicy food too.

    1. Thank you Brain

      That is nice that you are already familiar with Pakistani food .
      Can't say the place where you go but if you are talking about ingredients used in our traditional food are only NATURAL and hundred percent authentic

  9. These dishes all look so good! I think it might be hard for me to eat many of them as I can't eat spicy food. Are stomach problems evident at all in your country? More and more people I know have to take medication for excess stomach acid, as I do. I would love to be able to eat these foods :)

    1. Yes Jenny you are right that people suffer with stomach problems but we can't say that it's all because of spicy food.

      There are many other factors like eating in hurry ,over eating, much use of oily or deep fried food and above all mental disturbance.

      Since childhood i saw my mother cooked healthy food which means less oily and less spicy still i suffered with stomach ulcer and i think biggest reason for this was my extra sensitivity which caused me digesting disorder

      Delete
    2. You are so right - oily and deep-fried food are other things that bother me also. And I think that extra sensitivity is really the heart of the problem for me as well. I have been like this for a long time but it gets worse as I get older. I hope you are feeling well and can eat your delicious meals :)

    3. Doctor put me on Proton-pump inhibitor medication omeprazole for my stomach acid. It works. I have Barrett's esophagus which can turn into cancer if not treated.

    4. I am sorry John for your Stomach disease.
      I suffered with stomach ulcer for more than 14 years unknowingly and one suddenly when went for check up doctor held my wrist and declared that i have wound in my stomach which is causing internal bleeding since 14 years ,meanwhile i was not taking my misery seriously and life had so many other things to do but now i know that if one is not healthy inside all seems WASTED

  10. Oh it all looks so good. The cauliflower dish especially caught my eye and made my stomach rumble.

  12. I am getting hungry looking at all these wonderful dishes. They look delicious, Baili, especially the chicken rolls. Your bread is different than ours here. And you have pizza! I like spicy food, but not too spicy. I didn't realize you get all the seasons and hot tea is enjoyed. I have my evening tea as well. : ) Thanks for sharing these popular dishes with us. It was an interesting post.

  16. They do look very nice.
    I'm glad you can feel less heat nowadays. 38 is still hot but the relief is obviously relative when you've had 50 plus - wow!
    Good wishes to you Baili :D)

    1. Thank you dear Sue!

      Yes we are at relief nowadays because from May heat starts growing and June July are really hot with 50 plus temp so less than 40 is happy season here if outdoor activities are less

    1. Wow that is great ausiroo my friend.

  19. Oh these are beautiful dishes! I had never seen this traditional bread that looks like a swirl - it looks like maybe you would use the bread to scoop up some of the other food?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Thank you dear friend!

      You are right we use bread to eat along all other dishes as main part of meal.
      Sometimes rice are used instead of it

  20. I am sincerely interested in creating these foods (dishes). Thank you so much for sharing. While you and your country enjoy sipping tea most of all, we tend to do that in the US as a comforting break in the morning, afternoon and evening. Iced tea is a wonderful, and so enjoyed as a drink at lunch and dinner, especially in restaurants.

    Do you have cold winters? Just not sure.

    1. Glad you liked our food enough to try it dear Blondie!

      How strange that iced tea is used here quite less ,i had it twice in my whole life with friend who was Chinese lady in her beauty parlour and liked it though it was winter .

      It is weird that i like icecrem in winters more than in summers unlike my other family members.

      Yes we do have extreme winter from December to January and i really love this season though my knee doesn't

  21. Hi Baili - it all looks delicious ... I'd like to try one dish at a time - that'll keep me busy for a few months! So I can savour and remember the tastes ... I think I'd need to have them here in slightly cooler conditions! They certainly look good - and I'm sure your hubby enjoyed his tea after you'd written this post! Cheers Hilary

    1. Thank you dear Hillary!

      I think it is always good idea to try different foods from different corners of the world it made us feel BETTER for eavh other and bring hearts close to each other.

      You should try this my friend and asure you that YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!


      I had to keep my pray shorter last evening and yes hubby enjoyed the tea with me little late but it did not spoil his mood because i had quite exhausted busy day yesterday as i washed my grains for whole month use and was already tired .
      Why didn't he made tea for both of us ?.Actually he got a call from a friend who always make long calls (half hour, can you believe) so tea was little late yet having it together in good mood made it one more nice memory

    1. Thank you my precious friend Sara!

      I still remember how much i disliked vegetables though did not even meat but vegetables were never been liked by me specially in my teenage.

      But by the time like many other things vegetables also came in the circle of my liked and now even my favourite choices.

      We learn gradually that all tempting things cause harm mostly and all boring simple things have stable and positive aspect for us.

    1. Thank you dear friend Fairy!

      How amazing that you make some of the same dishes and how nice that your hubby too make eastern kind of dishes!

      My hubby also used to do cooking some years ago but now doctor advised him to stay away from heat as much as possible since he survived from Hepatitis.

      Mint and coriander dip has many kinds in different areas. We too use yogurt mostly when use it with Biryani.

      I am glad that you want to know more and believe me even i want to share more anout our lifestyle here as it is actually what blogging about that is what i think so i will shre some more of it in my next post hopefully.
