As Pakistanis, we all know this Facebook post far too well:
And most of the time, again since we are Pakistanis, it’s either because we want clothes, a janamaz or food.
SO, in the spirit of travel season and being Desi, we decided to put together an article on the food items everyone takes from Pakistan, or asks people from Pakistan to bring with them when going abroad.
1. Shezan Mango Juice
3. EVERYDAY POWDER
4. Chilli garlic sauce
Honestly, how else do you expect to eat pizza? With NORMAL ketchup!?
6. Chilli Milli
8. Dino Munchies
(Mujhe bhee do)
11. Hajmola candy
14. Khalifa ki khatai
15. ABC Jelly
17. Paani Puri
18. Tapal/Lipton/Literally every kind of chai
20. Rooh Afza
21. Nando’s ka cake
PAKISTANI NANDO’S CAKE IS TOO GOOD. YOU KNOW IT.
There ya have it folks, the starter pack for all Desi’s living abroad. Do you have any other snacks you ask for? Any other foods that you crave? Let us know what you think in the comments section below! Stay hungry. Stay Desi. Love you.
