View attachment 15149


Although at the moment I have found a nice brand of soft corn tortilla . had some last night with re-fried black beans (with garlic, chopped coriander stems, red onion and roasted cumin seed ; that's a bit like a dhal .

I mean , is that a bit like dhal ? :)
I had never liked western style bread except tortilla or Pita bread, they resemble very identical to roti in their texture, chewy and could be rolled into any gravy.

On average Afghans/Pashtuns consume more meat than other South Asians.

"The average Frontierman is particularly fond of meat, and it is believed that more meat per head is consumed in the Frontier than in any other part of India, the Province importing every year slaughter cattle worth about Rs.18 lakhs in addition to the locally raised stock for the purpose. ["The Indian Journal of Economics", Vol-23, 1943]
This is mainly because of Hindu dietary laws and land in India is very fertile to produce surplus food.

Humans live more healthy and longer the less they eat. Don't overeat, since it will kill you early.

Ummmmm ... maybe for the rich people .

Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That's about one in nine people on earth. The vast majority of the world's hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 percent of the population is undernourished.

I think that's why we need to shift to the template diet recommended by researchers recently that I mentioned in a previous post

That way we'd have more surplus to share
