Gawal Mandi quite literally means Milkman's Market. It is a historic and much celebrated food street in the heart of the ancient walled city of Lahore - Pakistan.
To start off with there are plenty of desi food blogs available all over the internet. So why i want to write more about food? The idea came after countless interactions with people while working in London. I found out that South Asian curry was the most loved food in Britain. Then i observed that the most loved desi food restaurants belonged to Pakistanis but the food sold there was termed as Indian. Essentially everything which had some hint of spice in it was labeled as Indian food. The food itself had no resemblance to the actual Pakistani cuisine. I also realized that the "The Indian Food" also had very less resemblance to the original Indian food. The food served there was being customized to a level that bore no resemblance to the original recipes anymore.
I promise that this blog will slowly evolve and improve and cover more things than i am aiming to do at this point in time. I am excited to be finally able to do this.....as i have been contemplating this for a while now. I am glad i overcame the inertia.
