Want a different twist on your regular chicken korma? Look no further! I found this dish here, originally by chef Rahat from Rahat Cooking. I changed the recipe as the original one calls for cream, coconut powder, extra julian ginger and more yogurt. I made it without those things and it still turned out delicious. Also note that I am using twice as much chicken as the original recipe which is why I doubled some of the ingredients. This dish is one of my favorites!! Hope you all enjoy it. (more…)

My Khala (mom’s sister) is known to always have these delicious cake rusks at her house every time we go over to visit. This time I made sure to ask her for the recipe as I have been so excited to try to bake it. So FINALLY I made her infamous Rusk Cakes and they were delicious! For those of you who don’t know, Cake Rusk is similar to the Italian Biscotti. It is usually eaten with a cup of chai for breakfast and is not heavily sweet.

Asalaamu Alaykum Readers!

Ever get bored with cooking and eating the same thing over and over again?  Ever dream of some exotic meal but couldn’t figure out what it was your taste buds craved? Well I had this dilemma last weekend and I didn’t want to eat the traditional meals I always cook.  I was craving something chut pati (tangy, spicy) so I went on Google and made three things from recipes I found.  Then I realized that all of these things can be classified as what I like to  call “Pakistani Street Foods”. Which is exactly what I said to my sister when she woke up: “Hey, we’re having Pakistani street food today!” Here are the recipes and pictures from my cooking adventure below. (more…)

This is a great chicken qorma recipe which is basically chicken in spices and gravy made from onions and yogurt. It’s great for special occasion dinners or just something different you may want to try. Before making anything of course always say Bismillah-irahmaan-iraheem. In the name of Allah most gracious, most merciful, so that you start in His name and add barakah (blessing) to your food! (more…)
