That's interesting because I've never heard this in India where it would've originated. I would've thought they would've stuck to the name sandwich.

Assalamua'laikum

Many Indians also use word double roti. Basically they saw foreigners putting two slices one above the other and in urdu or hindu started calling "double roti".

Sticking to the topic of sarcasm and linked to food :)


So I got home from work and I see my youngest son (almost 4 years old now, MashaAllah) run towards me.

I grabbed him, hugged him and kept kissing him.

I said to him, "I'm gonna eat you"

He said, "No, you can't eat me". I asked if he was haram, he said, no! So I said if your not haram, you must be halal then. Again he said, "No!"

So I said to him that if he wasn't haram, I could eat him, but if he wasn't halal either, then what was he.

He said, "I'm a Muslim man! You can't eat a Muslim man" and he was serious. He wouldn't let me bite his cheeks after that just in case

I thought I'd catch him out, but he didn't say he was halal :)

ha this was funny, I also struggle in knowing why people call it double roti. But I do know what are 'Papay' - circular chai rusks.

There is another current struggle which I am going through when I visit Pakistan. In the Punjab region, if you take a sudden and short visit to someone's house - they will ask if you would like to have anything to eat or drink?

The natural thing that would come in mind (be it that if one is thirsty or not) would be 'Pani' (water), since it is inexpensive. Even if you decline everything, the host would still encourage to at-least have some 'Pani.'

What really gets presented is a soft drink (7up, Pepsi, Sprite, surprisingly now they also have 'sufi cola'). The funny thing is, at one side one was expecting water to be presented, and on the other hand one feels bad to decline the soft drink, as the host invested money to buy this bottle for the person.

So I was wondering maybe the usage of soft drinks is so common nowadays that they term it as Pani (water)?

As a visitor, they know that the water is not fit for your consumption, so they give you something safer :(

In such cases, we take bottled water with us anyway.

That is a legitimate point. I did not thought this way, I guess it could be the reason why they equate water to soft drinks.

If you want water anyway then I can tell you the secret word for that. "Saada Paani" i.e. Simple Water. This way, they will understand correctly.
