  5. I was wondering what the potato does to the mixture. Is it common to use potato or only in some regions of Pakistan?

  6. Dear Arif Khan,This is not the appropriate forum for this kind of discussion but since you started it I would like to clarify.For your information Allah is the real word for Allah in the Quran and not Khuda....Khuda is the invention NOT Allah....khuda is an Iranian word.So to say Allah Hafiz is appropriate and a proper way to greet someone.Thank you

  7. Always say KHUDA HAFIZ that was original way to greet Allah Hafiz becomes Muslim specific and is a Pakistani INVENTION of the 90's Thanks
