Admit it or not, we all love a good pun. After all, who doesn’t appreciate some word play with a hint of witty? What makes it more interesting? Clubbing it with food, of course. Particularly DESI KHANA! If you’re a desi who lives to eat, *drumroll*, you’re in for a treat! Presenting 10 howl-arious puns that will not only put a smile on your face (just like a melting blob of butter on hot aloo parathas does to us) but also give you some dinner ideas for tonight.

P.S. In case you’re planning to use any of these in real life conversations, we suggest you first try them with your loved ones – people who won’t judge you hard. No, seriously!
