By the way are there any university students here?
How do you deal with no access to Pakistani food?

Sookha Peekha khana kha kha kar takh gaya hoon yaar.
I'm a uni student but I always have access to Ammi's food haha. I commute to uni that's why. I actually feel sorry for uni students, Ammi ka khana is the best!

App khana bana na seekh ley phir. A cousin of mine know how to make biryaani, all cos he was leaving for uni.

I don't know but I heard that Arians are seen as 'Arian gande khayain' meaning 'Arian eats onions a lot'. Not the trustworthy thing. We are so shareef log!
What language is that? Arain eat onions would be Arain pyaaz khayain.
Or is it implicit because gande means bad and they may be implying that onions are bad or that arains have bad eating habits?

Haha Allah! Well, you can get desi food from different places but can be expensive on a daily basis. So, I guess the best option would be to learn khana bana na

Rotis haha you should be able to at least make a tayrii mayrii roti. But I know fresh roti made by Ammi is the best !

Lol.

I have tried very hard - implicitly referring to learning how to cook
But I have always failed.
I have now become accustomed to eating cereal (because I haven't been able to learn how to cook)
I miss those fresh rotis - rotis, ofcourse, are pakistani bread or chappatis etc.

So true! The average man on the street wouldn't (but should) know that the region that is now Pakistan is the literal cradle of civilisation. The first civilisation known to man (Indus Valley civilisation) was founded there and one of the world's earliest cities, Mohenjo-Daro, can still be visited to this day. 2600BC! That's ancient by ancient Greek standards, and if that doesn't make Pakistan a country worth visiting, I don't know what would!

It's sad that many Pakistanis (mainly British-Pakistanis) don't know or appreciate what amazing heritage they have. I'd say we have the richest history you could wish for
South Asian history is amazing, I just feel European history is shoved down our throats and made to seem superior. -_-

I just wish more British Pakistanis would look into their history, and realize we wearnt always Muslim, but still admire and appreciate the pre-Islamic history.

My mum always gives me some biryani (a days worth), and lots of tubs of keema and daal, I just freeze them and then eat them with pasta or bread/pita bread, that's the best I can do. I just need some food with Lil spice to remind me of home lol. I do visit home every two weeks so I'm well stocked up and mum always prepares a nice meal involving chicken when I visit, so nice of her! (I love chicken lol)

dude the British helped rediscover indias now world renowned civilisations in the indus valley, aryan acheology etc - they were obsessed with it when they found we had full cities older than the Pyramids. - it was the arab muslims that supressed this history when they invaded now modern afganistan and pakistan and tried to remove its hindu and buddhist roots from the record

the reason why british pakistanis dont know of the wealth of their own history is basically cause of islam- which was the doctrine of their slave masters of the past.
