Flavour or nutrition??

Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill

If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

NO, The simple answer to today’s prompt.. Definitely a NO! why? Because I love food! I eat food not because of nutrition but merely because of amazing flavours of food and I wouldn’t waste that opportunity of being happy 😀girl-eating-chocolate-cake-280X280

Fantastic Foods . . .

Daily Prompt: Five a Day

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?

Wow! My captor must really be nice to give me an option to choose five foods for myself in the state of exile and I’ll try to make the most of this amazing offer.. =D

I’ll choose:

  1. Cream Cheese Triangles 
  2. Biryani 

    (A Pakistani rice dish)

  3. Pizza
  4. Spicy minced meat with boiled rice and pickles (It’s a dish which my mom cooks exclusively for me.. And since this is again a Pakistani dish I cannot describe it very well in words but It’s just too good 😀 )
  5. Macaroni cooked in Béchamel sauce

After my thoughts to wish for all these things, I really hope not to wake up soon from this wonderful dream of mine! =D

A locally awesome Sunday

Daily Prompt: Local Flavor

Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come from as though it’s an entry in a travel guide.

I am a Pakistani and we are a food loving nation. Be it a happy occasion or a sad one, We EAT!

Few Sundays ago, Our family of five (ME, my parents, my siblings) went to Urdu bazaar (A market place for books and stationery etc) to purchase some books for university. Unfortunately the market was closed that day so we had to decide to go somewhere to have some evening snacks (It was included in our plan to have some snacks on our way back). So we went to Bahadurabad (A famous local place in Karachi, Pakistan) on a small food stall. The shop next to it was selling ‘Fish n Chips’ but we were determined to have a local snacks to we bought ‘Chaat’. Chaat basically consists of boiled chickpeas, garnished with onion (optional), yoghurt,  tamarind relish, some crushed spices and chopped dried red pepper!

After having that we bought ‘gol gappay’. Another favourite food of Pakistani people. It consists of Puri (dough fired in ghee or oil in small round shapes) to be dipped in spicy, sour water.
