We raise these fish here, on our own There is a difference between what grows in house and what grows outside – ofcourse Do you have river fish? No they are rare Because that fish is for hunting –ok How are you bro? Do you have gram flour or any other type of pakora's? We have both onion any potatoes pakora’s Okay onion pakora’s too?

Liaquat bro where are we going now after usho’s point? After that, Palogha will come, what’s there? Palogha is a beautiful valley/village So palogha village is in front of us Let's find out here about the trout fish that belong to the river There is also farmed fish, but the river ones tastes different Assalam-o-Alaikum, walikum assalam What a great system – yes They have created such a system in which spring water is pouring on the bottles and the bottles are getting colder They are harvesting a crop let’s ask them what is it Assalam-o-Alaikum, walaikum assalam Is this turnip (shaljum) –no potatoes ohh Assalam-o-Alaikum bro how are you? –walaikum assalam I thought it was a turnip but these are potatoes These are red potatoes, they are raw. so how you ripe it?

But the potatoes that come to Karachi are not red They are different, but rightnow these are raw potatoes It will take some time to ripen –okay Look, these all are red potatoes just like a (red blood) Is this the whole potato crop? Yes, it is There are many crops, which crops are grown here? Potatoes, cucumber, peas, thinda Okay good dude What a beautiful atmosphere The vitamin and mineral value of the crop here will also be different Thank you bro good by (Allah hafiz) Basically on the way to Mahudand, there is a Palogha Pass it’s a village jeeps and other vehicles stod here for a break Chapli kebabs are being prepared here Brother, eat this chapli kebab… We thought we’ve came so far so we should try chapli kebabs It contains pomegranate, onion and other spices but not tomatoes Because this place is located at a very high altitude Let's check how this kebab tastes It tastes good but the taste of onion is more in it though it has the taste of chapali kebab but if it had tomatoes, then the taste would be different You come so high and there you can eat chapli kabab So I think that's a good thing too Great!! Let's move on. We also found trout fish here
But only farmed trout is available here lets go ahead may be we find some trout caught from the river Let’s see!! Check out the beautiful scenery & views There is a huge ditch below and the river is flowing Road is rough & cool wind is blowing And we're going to Mahodand Lake And we have reached “Mahodand Lake”, this is Lake Mahodand For which we have been traveling since morning There were many beautiful views along the way We have reached the lake, we will stay here for a while Ouch!!! We’ll eat food and enjoy the beautiful views of nature The water of the lake was up to this field, Now the lake is a little dry because of the cold weather When the snow melts from the mountains in summer, the water of the lake also rises This place & soil is still moist You can also enjoy a boat ride on the lake But the lake shrinks a lot because of the cold weather Otherwise this whole area is full of water the water of the lake is up to the boats What’s the cost of the trout fish? – Rs. 2500 per kg Is this a farmed fish? Yes River fish are very expensive Trout fish is only available at hunters shop Sir this one is original –are you sure? The fish has just come out of the river, it is very fresh – okay great!! We searched a lot, but we found farmed trout everywhere There is a difference between farm trout and original trout Its color, texture and its taste are very different We got it at Rs. 2400 per kg, its price is also very reasonable Let’s fry it & then taste it –awesome Hey, are you pulling out the fish bones? –no I cut the fish so that the spices are marinated inside it -okay They have opened the fish well so that the whole spice is marinated inside That’s a good method, the trout I ate earlier were simply cut into pieces & then they marinate it Not much spice is added to this fish – yes “Adding salt”, this fish has its own taste If you add more spices, it will lose its own taste Will you put lemon drops in it? No, we will fry it Now you will know the real taste of trout – that’s right Which spice is this? this one is trout's own spice It’s a special spice (masala), isn’t it the packet masala? -no this is a fishy spice, okay We will leave it for 10 to 15 minutes for marination What a great scene …the spice is applied on the trout & it’s not packet spices, it’s a special one I’ll try to make your comments possible that you commented on my previous video that Just Grill the fish a little, add a few drops of lemons, little amount of salt that’s it then shallow fry it But the chief is the expert here Basically they will fry the fish Let's see their style and taste They have their own spices & don’t use packed ones let's check it now This lake's trout fish is very famous Whoever eats will remember, such a taste is not found in the whole Pakistan What's the name of your Dhaba? (Food stall) -green valley restaurant, every guest who came to our restaurant has yet to compliment us When you come to Mahodand Lake, there are a lot of food spots here But we are at Mohammad Zada Green Valley Restaurant So Come to Green Valley Restaurant and enjoy the trout The oil/clarified butter for gram lentils has become hot and they have added tomatoes in it Our fish is being marinate The fish is almost fried, lets look for a place to sit where we can see a nice view. By the way, there are beautiful views all around Okay so…Our food has arrived Today’s menu is Naan, gram lentils, beans (lobia) Here's the real dish we've been looking for… very tempting! Now I’ll take it out in my plate & close the pot so that the fish remain hot Because my friends will eat later Check it out, they marinate it quite well by cutting it from the inside This is the skin of a fish… umm “mouthwatering” Bismillah I’ll start with lentils and beans Then I’ll try fish in the end Because if I eat fish right now, I’ll not enjoy eating lentils and beans They have also fried beans in Ghee (clarified butter), not in oil Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim Delicious.. Let’s try gram lentils, beans are delicious enough The taste of both beans and lentils… Green & red chillies… but I’ll not eat them because I feel they are very hot n spicy Anyways..
The taste of lentils and beans is slightly different. Both of them are made in Ghee The taste of ghee is different, I liked beans more than lentils Very nice Now let’s eat fish, before it gets cold Check it out its skin and the whole fish is very tempting It has skin on one side and other side is marinated Naturally there are not many fish bones, if there are you can easily digest it I'll take a nice chunk of this fish Real river “trout fish”… In the beautiful mountainous region of Mahodand Lake Bismillah.. Bro I’m speechless!! They've also fried it in ghee The spice that is added is a bit chilly, but the fish has its own excellent taste It should not be deep fried too much But I guess the taste of this fish is more delicious after such a long journey the pleasure of sitting in this beautiful valley and eating trout is very delicious. Ohh!! I've finished half the fish.. yummy
Well marinated. It is well cooked inside, not uncooked at all Take a bite with the skin then eat it, & enjoy the fish This fish does not need to be eaten with any sauce etc.. Wow!! Wonderful, great I have no words but to praise it This video is enough to explain the whole experience My experience, from breakfast to eating trout I can't explain it into words If you like the video, please let me know in the comments section It takes a lot of hard work to make these videos, but it’s also enjoyable If I’m enjoying something I try that my viewers also get that feeling After the delicious fish, let's enjoy a tea Ahhh..
