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!

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…)

In a hadith narrated by Abi Sahi al-Qudri, Jibrael (as.) came to the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلمand said your Rabb (Allah) says “do you know how I elevated your mention?” The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلمsaid Allah the Elevated knows best about it.

Jibrael said “whenever I am mentioned you are mentioned with me.”

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…)
