    Mr.M.S.Qureshi. home-cooking is an art,and so is eating.and Lahorites start learning that art right from the cradle.For instance,it’s an art to match a meat-palao platter with a suitable meat-curry as its topping,and Lahorites are the past-masters in that. It’s an art to match a pan-fresh flaky layered paratha with spinach-goat-meat-curry, goat-meat-potato-curry,etc or with plain hastily made scrambled eggs,and Lohrites have a natural endowment of that. A mere mention of Pakistani food relives my memory of the delicacies of my Lahore. A few of them are as following:(1)Halva-poori of Mehtab Halvai of Mochi Gate(2)Pakaoras of the pakaora-shop in the vicinity of Char-Charrakhhrian Wala khuh,Mochi Gate(3)Barfi of Lal Khuh(4)Nehari of Bala Nehariwala of Aziz Road and Rahim Road intersection of Misri Shah(5)Chargha of Tabaaq of McLeod Road(6)Benazir qulfa of Mozang and (7)Fried rahu fish of Dar-ul-Mahee of Mozang..It’s heard that eateries and food-streets are bristling up like mush-rooms in Lahore. Much to gratify one’s gustatory urge!
