      The 24-hour Kababish (939 N. Orleans, 312-642-8622) has a few booths set before a steaming buffet of hearty north Indian and Pakistani dishes, notably a thick, stewy, slow-cooked haleem made from wheat, mutton, lentils, and spice; grilled charga chicken sprinkled with garam masala; and goat curry.
