Danay Garma Garam

If any of you happens to pass by the Green Trust Tower (or the UBL Building or the OGDCL building) on Jinnah Avenue (Blue Area), be on the look out for these yummy garma garam danay. Especially if you are on foot then it would be criminal not to check out the danay from this theela (cart). This guy comes to this area ever day around midday and stays till late in the evening.

Danay Getting Roasted

These days he has two types of danay to offer. One is makai (corn) and the other is channay (some kind of chick-peas). He would roast these in front of you in the big pan containing salt of some kind. When he is done, he will transfer those ‘now roasted’ danay to a small paper bag (looks tiny at times) and hand over to you. You can enjoy these ‘healthy’ treats from as low as Rs 5.00 to as much as you can afford & handle (rather your teeth and tummy can handle), not to mention till the danay-wala’s stocks last.

My mouth is already watering but I cannot spot the danay wala from my window yet. Maybe its too early for him to arrive. I guess I will have to wait a bit and then with my whole army (gal pals in office) I will charge and conquer (satisfy my relish that is).

    Know how they throw little stones at the window to secretly ‘knock’?

    Humor is always appreciated. But i suggest a level of decency should be observed even when one is trying to be funny.
