    Our family always makes ‘lassan’ (garlic) for weekend breakfasts in the winter — not sure what the exact recipe but its made with fresh garlic (the green kind) and bajray ka aata.
    And served with yoghurt.

    Another wintertime favorite of my grandmother’s was ‘assairi ka rab’ or ‘kanji’. Not sure what its called in English — but she’d make a red sharbat out of it and the ‘kanji’ would look like little tadpoles :)

    salam people,
    those who eat lassan i guess u r maimans. cause they eat that a lot and all my friends r maimans so i know that much.ever eaten gur ka halwa??? its nice. and i thing that d best thing on a coooool night is coffeeee!!! we usually have soups and stuff. but ithink v should have icecream. asal mai winters here r so short that v should enjoy 2 d maximum. and eating icecream in winter is more fun than eating icecream in summer.gur ka halwa
    “u need gur,ghee,suji and alaichi
    the gur and suji has 2 b equal in ratio
    heat the ghee, put in the d alaichi & suji as soon as it turns golden put in d gur(crushed). when d gur melts and is balanced (donot overcook it tastes awful then i know cause i did that once)add a spoonful or 2 in the halwa and let it cool.”
    if its not good its not my fault. mayb u r not a nice cook.but when i make it its nice.
