Halwa Pori

Halwa poori is a part of traditional Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The dish consists of poori bread with chana masala, along with halwa.

The food originated in northern India mainly in Uttar Pradesh. Punjab and in Uttar Pradesh. The dish is also popular in the Terai region of lowland Nepal, especially in the Madheshi community. It is served as prasada by Hindus and Sikhs in the Indian states of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh. Halwa Poori is eaten at all times, but it is usually a part of breakfast or an early evening meal.


Jalebi, also known as zulbia, is a sweet popular in countries of South Asia, West Asia, North Africa, and East Africa. It is made by deep-frying maida flour (plain flour or all-purpose flour) batter in pretzel or circular shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. They are particularly popular in Persia and Indian subcontinent.

The sweets are served warm or cold. They have a somewhat chewy texture with a crystallized sugary exterior coating. Citric acid or lime juice is sometimes added to the syrup, as well as rose water. Jalebi is eaten with curd or rabri (North India) along with optional other flavours such as kewra (scented water).


Barbecue or barbeque (informally BBQ or barby/barbies) is both a cooking method and an apparatus. Barbecuing is done slowly over low, indirect heat and the food is flavored by the smoking process, while grilling, a related process, is generally done quickly over moderate-to-high direct heat that produces little smoke.

The word “barbecue” when used as a noun can refer to: the cooking method itself, the meat cooked this way, the cooking apparatus used (the “barbecue grill” or simply “barbecue”), or to a type of social event featuring this type of cooking. The term is also used as a verb, i.e. “barbecuing” is usually done outdoors by smoking the meat over wood or charcoal. Restaurant barbecue may be cooked in large, specially-designed brick or metal ovens. Barbecue is practiced in many areas of the world and there are numerous regional variations.
