Aj Ka Nashta:
I had a heavy breakfast today. Some of you might call me mad because of the choice and the combination of it.
Chaye Paratha is a very popular breakfast in our part of the world. I particularly like having Chaye Paratha at a Pathan hotel. I do realize that they use churrbi *concentrated fat* to prepare the Paratha, but I swear its delicious. Pathan kay haath mein jaado hai. They make the finest chaye *its amazing how they manage to make such tea because of the number of times they use the same puttee (like over & over again)*. The Paratha is so oily that you have to use a piece of newspaper to lower its fat content. This particular paratha place is just in front of the Bait-ul Muqarram Masjid in Block 16 Gulshan-e-Iqbal.
Paratha: 6 Rs (10 cents)
Chaye: 4 Rs (less than 7 cents)
I had some space left in my paitt-ee when I decided to have a
doodh-ki-botal (sweetened milk) at a Nagori Milk Shop located just next to
the Quetta hotel.
Price: 16 Rs.
My nashta today was a testimony to the fact that everything good doesn’t
have to be expensive.
