Foods of Ramadan

This picture was taken of a street stall in Dubai outside a restaurant that sells Samosas, Pakoras, Jaleebis, and Dahi ballas for Iftaar. The picture is of the different ingredients that make up dahi ballas. There is an assortment of chutneys, yoghurt, channa, and ballas. It is a spicy snack popular in South Asia usually eaten for Iftaar.

Yummy!! I had a small portion of lasagne today. Strange combination with pakoras and samosas, but my brother brought it. It was actually pretty good!

LOL at DREB and dahi bhallé.
Lahoris are the limit.
They eat dinner, go for a stroll, and come back having eaten dahi bhallé and falooda.

Assi to hai.
But you know what I love best in the world. Thandda duddh! Only available in karachi at the Nagori Milk Shop, ice cold milk, served in those small coke bottles.
OOOH yeh!

Kaya, love that milk and miss the banta bottles of soda.

Can I please have a serving of chilli pakoras and jaleebis sent to me in Berlin?

And if you'd like to throw in some lakhri (spelling?) - you know, that sweet covered in icing sugar - that would be awesome!

:-)

I dont know if you guys have tried milk with 7Up. Its the best. And one thing is for sure lahori love to eat as do i.

DR: you're welcome for the design - happy to contribute!

Rajju: I guess that it would be ok, but I prefer vanilla ice cream and 7Up! You just have to put the ice cream in the glass first and then very slowly add the 7Up - otherwise it fizzes and foams too much!

milk with 7up? lolll wow I have to try that. how much milk and how much 7up?

NZM: I have done that with coke...a cafe served it here and they called it cola float. YUMMY!

Floats are amazing. we used to have root beer with ice cream. Yum Yum. 7Up and milk, I have never been able to do.
