    haha soon we will be talking about whether indian falsay are better than pakistani falsay or whether Gen Zia had plotted to ban falsay to divide and conquer the falsay lovers vs the falsay haters

    Sharia laws may affect falsay, and what quaid e-azam said about falsay.


    all i hafta say is..

    falsay.....thanday falsay...khatay meethay falsay... ( remember a rerhi wala who used to sell em like that)

      Shame on you both. I had Falsa Juice (yummmmmm) in Lahore. Excellent. Little salt and just nothing crunches the thrust like Falsa juice.

                CM, Outlaw is right, it is a berry, somehow related to Cranberry and other Berries. In English it is called “Distance Fruit”, the size of it is tiny bit bigger than your brains, and it is lot juicier than that.

                  Kindly explain what a 'falsey' is.

                  Thanks very much.

                      Ruth Chris's serves falsays with dessert. I was so shocked when I popped one in my mouth cause I thought it was a cherry. They call it "seasonal berries." Go figure!

                        Falsay.... I remember the thaila-on-the-bicycle sellers with their 'specialized pots' to mix namak with falsay and do the 'ragra' thing and then making a 'cooppee' out of newspaper paper and handing it over to us quite vivdly.

                        I used to hate the khatay falsay... never liked them, but a good mix of ripe and maithay with a little 'tursh' ones were the best.

                        How abot shatoot or shahtoot? Anybody miss them? I sure do. Once I went to my pind when I was a kid with my brother and sister and we climbed up this shahtoot tree there which was covered with the ripe shahtoot fruit. I remember it was such a feast! We had all the fruit that we could eat. And for the first time I learned how elastic and strong a shahtoot's 'tahni' (branch) can be as I was climbing and swinging and hanging all over the tree like a monkey.

                        Fun days.

                          And I think, if there are 2 glasses of juice infront of you.. One labeled "Falsay ka sharbat" and the other saying "Cranberry Juice"..
                          I bet you'll go for the falsay ka sharbat.

                          And did I hear someone mention Jaman! I love the jamans after "riRking" with some salt... Yummmmmmmm!!!

                              shehtoot also known as shareefa can be found in carribean stores selling as custard apple.

                              My uncle had trees in his house of the stuff and I never liked em, by the time I developed a taste for them, he moved from that house *sigh*
