Here Are 5 Best Food Combos To Have During The Rain


Seems like we have been blessed with rain in Karachi. Yes, we know it doesn’t always come with pleasantries as rain also equals to power cuts for hours, overflowing drainage and mosquito bites.

But that doesn’t mean us Karachiites don’t make the most of what we have. Whether it is living on the edge and going out to the beach during a heavy rainfall or going out for a long drive, count us on making chohti chohti khushiyan. And when it comes to making the most of any situation, there has to be food.

As M.K.Fisher said: ‘First we eat, then we do everything else’, isn’t it? So, here are five best food combos to have on a rainy day. And don’t worry, if the weather forecast is to be believed, there are going to be many more.

1. Pakora and Chai

Apart from Ramazan, we love a plate of crispy pakoray on a rainy day. And pair that with a strong cup of chai and you have love on a tray.

2. Coffee and Marshmallows

If you are not a chai person, don’t worry we have got you a caffeine fix too. Brew some hot coffee and add marshmallows in it and voila you have got a delicious combo you won’t regret.

3. Chai-Biscuit

Have you ever heard anyone say Chai ‘AND’ Biscuit? Yes, we neither because that’s one-word. Don’t tell us otherwise.

So, if you don’t want to miss the rain and want to have something on the go, especially for those long drives, have chai-biscuit.

4. Salted Fries and Meethi Lassi

Don’t @ us, we want you to have the best of both worlds. Just like how Karachi’s weather is unpredictable and goes from bright and sunny to breezy and rainy, this food combo also strikes the right balance between salty and sweet once paired together.

Salted crispy fries and a glass of namkeen thandi lassi will brighten up your mood during those power cuts. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

5. Samosa and Chutney

Did we say aloo ka samosa? Sorry, we mean aloo ka samosa and spicy green chutney will add life to your mundane work-life.

Some of us, or perhaps many, are usually at work when it rains during the day, making us hate life a little more. But don’t worry, samosa-chutney fix is just what you need to lift up your mood while you are looking out the window and pretending to work.
