Gajjar Ka Halwa
It will be unfair not to mention Gajjar Ka Halwa. Gajjar Ka Halwa is one of most favourite dishes that we have in winter. The essential ingredients used in preparing gajjar ka halwa are carrots, milk, ghee and nuts. All these ingredients are loaded with proteins, vitamins, calcium and magnesium that are building blocks for good health. You can easily get it from any bakery in Pakistan but we strongly recommend it to have anywhere in Punjab. It is something that Punajb specializes in.
The majority of the meals in Skardu are cooked completely from locally sourced products, with many components of the recipe created from scratch by the families. Balti cuisine is readily noticeable as distinct from meals in Pakistan’s lowlands and river basins. another famous delicacy from Skardu is Prapu. Prapu is a noodle dish that has been thickened with ground almonds. The noodles are created by hand from wheat flour and simmered till tender. When they’re done, they’re smeared with a thick paste made of powdered walnuts and squeezed apricot oil, and the entire thing is seasoned with fresh herbs.
