By Dahiza Umar

Boong payye in pakistan:

Boong payee is an ancient recipe of it times. It is famous not in LAHORE but all over PAKISTAN.

This recipe is actually special Punjabi breakfast in LAHORE. Grannies and mothers cooked this dish full night on slow heat and serve in the morning with nan or khamiri roti/ chapati. Punjabi are known as ‘’zinda dil’’, mean they don’t concern about calories or fat just eat to their full. This dish is known by its rich buttery flavor.

After this heavy breakfast I don’t think that anybody can eat the whole day.


Bong payee is actually trotters / hoof of beef or lamb. Even in winter this dish is usually made every two weeks. It has soupy consistency and gravy is mixed with bone marrow and desi ghee with traditional spices and cooked overnight on slow heat so flavors and bone marrow just infuse into gravy and rich texture is achieved.
