Chickpea Curry - For Halwa Poori.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's the savoury element to the ultimate Pakistani breakfast.

I've already shared the sweet dish for the breakfast which was this halwa and I'll be sharing the fried pooris very soon. But today, we're concentrating on the chanay which in essence, are just a simple chickpea curry.

Korean Potato Pancake with Onion Soy Sauce.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's a cross between an onion bhaji and a bag of french fries!
I mean, if that doesn't persuade you, I don't know what will.

Cranberry Orange Rolls with Cinnamon + Cardamom Glaze.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yesterday was a sad day.

A much-loved member of our family passed away. She had been battling cancer and passed away peacefully during the early hours of Thursday 1 December 2016. May Allah grant her a place in Jannatul Firdous and be pleased with her - ameen. She was a real character playing many roles in life as a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and great-aunt. She was also an excellant cook. I'll always remember going to visit her after school where she would effortlessly whip up a pot of saag with makki di roti.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surprise! It's a Monday recipe from me!
Even I am quite surprised at myself for getting my act together and planning super ahead to get this post to you by Monday morning. And, if your Monday morning is as grey as ours is here, then I think you'll be wanting something colourful, comforting and easy for dinner tonight.

Chocolate Cheesecake Pavlova.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Basically my new favourite dessert.

I know, I know, I say that to practically everything. But this one is serious. If I didn't have a mile long to-do list, I would go down to the kitchen right now and get it into the oven, ready for the weekend.
