brain masala is very tasty. Here in Lahore, such dishes are seldom available and I miss the days I pass in Karachi at my cousin's home. He takes me to the restaurants and famous food streets of Karachi and they are really the tastes I cannot find in Lahore.

if you make it with perfection in everything, it taste very good. I eat it frequently but sometimes it is perfect but sometimes it is just so so. Actually it is the ratio of spices, if you put it correctly it will rock otherwise it will be like an ordinary dish.
