    What's a Pakistani breakfast

    Pakistani Breakfast has lots of variety Drew ....

    1. Siri Paye (this means head and feet if you translate word for word but it is basically the legs of a lamb).

    It takes about 24 hours to cook to such an extent that the juice of the bones becomes part of the gravy and the meat is so soft that it melts in your mouth. You eat it with a Naan which is like a Pita bread but heavier. People order this breakfast rather than cooking it at home. You have to get it early because it is sold out by 7:30 in the morning so it's best to get it at 5.

    I believe you can get this from a Birmingham restaurant as they have a large contingent of Pakistanis but I don't know whether the taste is great or not.

    2. Halwa Puri

    Halwa is sweet. You have it with a Puri which is a fairly light roti style thing ... very tasty. You have it with gravy (a more common word is curry for everything gravy related in England). You mix and match it. It's very good.

    I believe you will find this in Birmingham as well.

    3. Omelette + Paratha (Pa-Ra-Thaa).

    You have your omelette with a Paratha which is a heavier form of Roti.


    Pakistani dishes are all about how one thing is cooked. The cooking styles and methods vary but the ingredients can be the same. The end result is that the taste is very different.


    All Pakistani food is very rich and slow food because it takes time to prepare. By rich food I mean, that it is fattening food and full of cholesterol. It is damn tasty but then again all unhealthy food is!


    Take a trip to Birmingham to check out some Pakistani restaurants. Maybe they have something good. I only had Pakistani food once in England in London and I thought it sucked because some amateurs go there and open a restaurant and use the name of Lahore or Pakistan to sell that very cheap food for very expensive GBPs because people crave for local food. It's simply not the same IMO.

    Mau, I thought being Italian you would know how to make Bolognese, let alone get instructions from an Englishman on how to make it!

    no no wait

    bolognese is no stuff for roman people(or nothern or southern) unless you are a chef (to cook other regions stuff) you make your own sauces-ragu's etc

    in facts in Rome i never ever had this so called bolognese, just our own meat home made 'sauce' what u call it
    and in fact that needs about 1 hour to bit more to be made

    this one here in 10-15 mins ehe

    Good food takes time

    What would be a traditional roman dish then? In England it's either fish & chips or roast dinners! lol
