    I prefer peas (chanay). I love the aftertaste of sand/rock in my mouth.

    “It’s not sand,it’s all salt.”

    It’s 100 percent salt, definitely.

    You can ask anyone, you can even taste the “sand” yourself.

    Want to bet?

    Get in touch with me, I want some money badly!!!

    As much as you say,

    I have done enough research on this since my school days.

    I am more than 100% sure on this, it’s salt and burnt salt.

    No SAND

    It’s burnt salt. I guess ASma has forgotten the taste of sand or I say she has forgotten her childhood when she used to eat mitti[sand]:>

    Good post and very relevent to current weather of Pakistan. I have recently started visiting IMB and enjoying it. Very different than karachi metroblog. Keep it up and keep educating karachiites like me about Isloo.

    I dont know about Islamabad but in Karachi now we get Makai with Chaat Masala and Leemo[Lemon] and it gives a very different and spicy taste.

    OK TM … sorrowfully I’ve to say you won … ;/ … I asked my dad and he said naah no sand its all “desi namak” …. or you can say rock salt ;> that is not very refined and has few particles of sand in it as well … so see I was not a loser anyways … hehehhe … :p

    @Adnan s: Oh i used to eat cement in my childhood :P .. Hmm lemon and chaat masala sounds yummy, i remember in my very very childhood when I went to kolachi, I enjoyed sweet potato aka shakarkandi with chaat masalah a lot, it was being sold almost like the challi wala roams arnd in islamabad … N thnx for coming by ..!
