Day 4 in Pakistan – Watch the entire series in order here: https://youtu.be/Xdya8eym9nM
Not far from Gujranwala we continued to Kot Yousaf, a small community village, still in Punjab, Pakistan. We were invited by the Bagdi family to enjoy a home cooked local (desi) breakfast – I didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be an amazing breakfast where the entire community came together.
You’ve already heard me saying “desi ghee” many times in previous videos in Pakistan. But desi is commonly used, even for “desi food.” But what does it mean? Here’s the definition:
1. local; indigenous
2. unadulterated or pure
When you say desi ghee, it means clarified butter that is locally sourced, and it’s one of the most important ingredients in Punjabi food in Pakistan. It’s used in so many dishes, and it usually comes from buffaloes.
It was an amazing opportunity and experience to watch the community in the village an impressive Punjabi food breakfast. The main dishes we had were a variety of different parathas, chickpeas, and saag – a local wild spinach simmered down, and one of my personal favorite dishes in Pakistan. It was awesome to watch them make the food before we ate, and a huge thank you to all the amazing people who prepared it.
Tent pegging – After breakfast we had the special opportunity to watch tent pegging, a sport where one rides a horse, and spears a peg in the ground while racing by. It’s more than a sport, it’s an art, and it’s been a part of Pakistani culture since ancient times.
Thank you to everyone who hosted me and gave me so much hospitality and generosity. It was an amazing day in Pakistan!
Thank you to Ali (Pakistan Travel Market) and Saim who arranged and planned our day in Gujranwala.

I have been living in Canada for the past 4 years. I’m from Moga, East Punjab, India. Man, I miss my homeland Punjab. 😢 I want to go visit it ASAP.

I'm a Punjabi from Malaysia . Just watching you eat saag with desi ghee and radish filled paratha makes my mouth water. Hmm. Punjabi food, best in the world.

Hi Mark, YEH I DOUBLE checked, it's MUSTARD green leaves.. you know when you drive past the country side and in the fields you see yellow flowers, that's saag.

Chakwal my city ❤️❤️❤️❤️
My elders migrated from a village near Hoshiarpur (Indian Punjab). They used to talk a lot about their native place. I think, there is the same culture and cuisines on both sides of the border, especially in the rural areas. Mark Wien whether you understand this dimension or not, you have done a great service in bringing the people of subcontinent closer together. So, stay blessed.
I’d be stuffed for the rest of the day! It looks so good 👍
