Its' been known for many years the national dish of Britain is Curry Pakistan style. Well done Saliha. Patients in English hospitals will be asking your food be put on the menu.

I have tried Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani dishes and believe me Pakistanis make the best of everything.

I have tasted the best flavoured dishes driving along GT Road and Super Highway Karachi. No match of that taste.
