Popular Winter Dishes In Pakistan


 Hello   Beautiful  People !


Hope   you  are  staying   warm   in  cold  weathers   with   the  help  of  your  cozy   room ,heater  and   favorite  dishes  !


Here   in  my  country   Pakistan  (situated in  south Asia)   winters  have  different  shades  for  different  parts    such  as   snowfall  in   northern  areas    keeps  temps   below  0  most  of  the  time  .

Middle   and  capital   part   of  the  country   bears   various   phases   of   temps    as   specially   snowfall   in  Murree   effects  the   weather  of  this part   to  great  extent.

We   live   in   plane   Sindh  province    which   has  mild   winters   until   the   Quetta   receives  the  snowfall  (Quetta  is  capital  of   our  least  populated  province  Baluchistan)   .

Quetta   is  situated  in  south   west   of  Pakistan   and  is   near   enough   to  influence   our  weather  conditions.

Coming   to   the  point   Dears ,   sharing   some   very   popular    winter  dishes    in  my   homeland .

All  images  are  taken   from   various  sources  available  on  google   just   to  give   you   quick   glimpse   of  our  winter   treats   that  help   us  to  keep  warm.

hope  you  will  enjoy  the  look




   mustard   with   traditional  corn  bread ,very  famous  in  my  native   village  as  well yum!!!  

                                                                   Lamb   meat  balls



                                                                  vegetable  curry


             (Haleem )   chicken   pieces  and  all  pulses  mixture, so  popular   in  this  season 



  Beef   legs   which  called   pie  here ,highly   rich  in  protein  and  very  delicious  (not my type though)

    turnip   with  spinach ,mom  was  so  expert  in  her  cooking ,all  of  them  made  by  her  were  far  better  than  made  by  me


   Very   popular   desert  in  winters  , we  make  it  often Carrot  ,suger ,little  bit  oil  ,milk  and  dry  fruit !
                                                                           Waffle

                                                       chicken  and  vegetable  soup


 Once   i  used  to  live  for   food  

Now   time   ,life  and  diseases   taught  me  to  eat  for  living  only :(

  3. The food looks so good! I love most Pakistani food. I love curries.

    Here in New York most of the winter it is below 0 degrees Celsius. We usually also get a fair amount of snow. However this winter has been mild so far.

  6. everything looks interesting, colourful and delicious, I am vegetarian but there are some things there I would try :) We cook curry here - I have a book called 'the Indian housewifes cookbook' and it is really good, I cook chicken curry for the men and lentil daal for me. The foods you have shown are clearly from another regiion and very appetising. I don't live for food so much myself either but there is so much pleasure in cooking for others, don't you agree? food on the table just makes a place to warm and welcoming and homely. Yours certainly must be all of that!

  10. They all look delicious and I am surprised to see how many are similar to meals that we have - meatballs, fried fish, soups. I wish I had your attitude toward food (eat for living) because it is a much healthier way to approach eating. I am working on it :)

    Hoping you are feeling better today, dear friend.

  15. It's so interesting to see all the popular Winter dishes where you live, Baili. The soups look delicious, and they are always nice in the cold weather months. The fried fish also looks scrumptious. We usually have that around Easter time. Thanks for sharing these Yummy dishes, Baili.

    It is our Valentine's Day this Thursday.....a day of love.

    love to you, dear friend.

  22. Your dishes look wonderful, Baili! I would love to taste them all. Some, like the soups and fish fry, look very similar to hearty and hot food that we enjoy during the winter months. It has been cold and snowy here today, so Terry and I have been staying close to the fireplace. The hot flames are such a comfort. I'm on a mission to increase the number and variety of fruits and vegetables that Terry and I eat each day. I am actually beginning to like broccoli! LOL! Stay warm, my friend!
