Breakfast in Pakistan
Sounds interesting Jo and opposite to an English breakfast. You are definitely going to have strong bones even when you will be sixty as yogurt is said to be a source of calcium. May I ask since how long have you been a vegetarian? Is it because you love animals or any incident that you don’t eat meat? Or perhaps you don’t like to eat meat.
In Pakistan, the food people usually eat as breakfast is fried eggs, flat bread made of wheat and a cup of tea. A traditional breakfast which is eaten only on Sundays includes halwa, curry made of chickpeas and potatoes and puri. Halwa is a traditional desert which is served on all occasions. It is made of semolina and garnished with almonds and pistachios. Puri is deep fried bread and it can be made both with wheat flour and white flour. These make a delicious Sunday breakfast. And Jo, if you ever want to try it, you can find it on the menu of Indian restaurants in the UK by the name ‘Chana (chick peas) Bhatora (puri)’. In some parts of Pakistan people eat lassi Paratha as breakfast. Lassi is a drink made of yogurt and a little water and Paratha is fried bread.
I prefer to eat flat bread, homemade jam of mangoes and a cup of tea as breakfast. I don’t eat eggs daily, it’s only twice a week. If you ask me the vilest food, I would instantly say sweetened pickle. It‘s made of raw mangoes, sugar and spices and it is eaten with spicy food.
I have tried to find out meanings of the words.
1 bangers - sausages
2 grub - an insect
3 sarnie - sandwich
This time I am also posting some pictures of the places in Pakistan.
