Go-lee/ Giyaling

We have a variety of  appetizing traditional food,that are  served on special occasions or  to special guests.Go-lee is one of my favorite dish and i loved it since my child hood.I still remember  my mami(mom)  preparing for it on the occasion of Ganoni and us (me and my brothers)  sitting around the Bukhari (local stove) in excitement and wait till the last Go-lee was made and along with  Dadii (Grandmother) we used to pay a visit to our wheat fields for rituals of Ganoni,Dadiii holding  holding a platter of Go-lee and all of us behind her.what beautiful days those were!

basically it is served in breakfast with tea .its kind of weird for some people to add salt in tea instead of sugar but in northern Pakistan drink saltish tea and the combination of Go-lee and tea is savory if  ginger and black pepper is added in tea.
