There’s a reason Lahore and its people are known for their love of food. Whether its summers or foggy winters, the city’s streets are filled with vendors offering something or the other to satisfy your urge to munch. And while those layers of clothing may keep you warm during freezing temperatures, there’s nothing like warm, delicious roadside snacks to help you get on with your day during those Lahori winters.

Here’s a list of seven roadside snacks we think will keep you warm and your taste buds tantalised during these winters.

Roasted peanuts

Roasted peanuts are desi-sensation to get you through the winters.

Winters probably are incomplete without munching on moong phalli while you stand along the roadside appreciating the weather or while you sit tucked in a blanket watching your favourite show.

And while we are at it, let’s not neglect rest of the roasted goodies that tempt you with the peanuts, including roasted channa and makai, nearly available in every other street of Lahore. Undoubtedly, these are some of the most in-demand warm munchies during winters.

Soup

Roadside hawkers in Lahore serve soups, aka yakhni, along with garam anday or boiled eggs, which apart from being nutritional, are also packed with amazing desi flavours to tantalise your taste buds. Food Street at Old Anarkali is one such place packed with vendors offering you a variety of yakhnis that will give you the much needed warmth during these winters.

Parathay

At Liberty and Mazang, garma garam parathay offered with traditional chutneys cannot be simply missed out on. And while the roadside vendors will tempt you with those traditional parathay, others will offer their western renditions, including pizza paratha, nutella paratha and chicken cheese paratha.

Halwa

As for warm desserts, nothing can beat the sizzling gaajar ka halwa, daal ka halwa and pethay ka halwa cooked in desi ghee that. Garnished with almonds and pistachios, these warm sweet treats are a must have for those Lahori winter evenings. And for those with a knack for the traditional, granted a bit eccentric, gaajar ka halwa garnished with sliced boiled eggs is also offered.

Samosa Chaat

Those foggy, rainy winters in Lahore are nothing but a waste if not for a samosa chaat topped with sweet and savoury chutneys. Filled with potatoes and served with chickpeas, yoghurt and topped with a dash of onion and lettuce, this chaat is simply irresistible.

For the best samosa chaat, you can head out to Ghalib market at Gulberg.

Lahore’s winters are nothing without shakarqandi. Sweet potatoes roasted, peeled and cubed, served with chaat masala and sprinkled with lime juice are offered across Lahore throughout the winters. Not only is it delicious, it is also very filling and easy on the pocket.

At times, in the cold of Lahore all you really need is grilled corn. Nothing tastes like a warm salty grilled corn, sprinkled generously with some chaat masala and lemon. It’s tasty, filling, easily available and priced cheap to make it one of the most sought roadside snacks, especially during winters.
