Lamb Spinach Curry - Gosht Palak.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Finally! I'm sharing another curry recipe with you!

Honestly guys, a curry is cooked in our house at least once every two days. Last night, it was this one (which I ate with toast - yum) and on Sunday, it was this lamb and spinach one. We call it gosht palak which literally just means lamb spinach. Sometimes we call it palak gosht. Which means spinach lamb. What exciting lives we lead!

it's Sunday as I type this but I'm pretty sure I won't be posting until Monday at the very least. after a slow start with spicy scrambled eggs and coffee, the day has sped up. there's a curry bubbling away on the hob, chicken marinading on the counter with fresh coriander, lemon slices and more and a double batch of this cake crumble baking in the second oven. it was transferred from the first, after the overflow of jam caused a slight burning problem. oops.

Cherry Slab Pie Bars.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

This is what I baked when the cherries invaded.

Last year, it was these brown butter cherry bars and this year, I thought I would finally make a pie.

Gluten-Free Sardine Fishcakes.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

A little something on the light side to get us going in the right direction after all that Eid indulgence.

But, I must say those gulab jamuns were delicious. There is something about our local methai (Pakistani sweets) shop. Their gulab jamuns and jalebis just cannot be beat. I've tried quite a few other major chains but somehow this small, family business makes the best.

Eid Mubarak!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

it was a very bittersweet moment last night as Ramadan ended. on the one hand, happiness knowing that the next day would be Eid and on the other hand, sadness at the passing of such a blessed month.

Hoisin Chicken Wraps with Sweetcorn + Cucumber Salsa.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

These photos were taken in January.

When there was snow outside and pots of spicy chicken soup bubbling away on the cooker. On a Sunday afternoon, I made these hoisin chicken wraps for lunch. We'd had crispy buckwheat waffles with maple syrup for breakfast and I fancied something a little different for lunch.

this week has whizzed by. I feel like once the routine of Ramadan sets in, time flies. with the prayers, the early-morning meal, the pre-iftar rush, long days, staying awake at night because there is no point in sleeping. seriously, guys, with me, if I fall asleep between iftar and sehri, I just won't wake up. so I stay awake.

Sweet + Savoury Shortcrust Pastry.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Guys, I am in love with homemade pastry.

Making it, rolling it, baking it, eating it - I love it. I honestly cannot remember the last time that we had shop-bought pastry in the freezer.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

An easy side dish for you guys today.
And, these 5-ingredient peri peri oven fries could not be easier. They were inspired by the fries in this recipe and can be customized with whichever herb mix you have in the cupboard. I've already made them twice this Ramadan.

Strawberries with Coconut Whipped Cream + Brown Butter Biscuit Crumble.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In July, we eat strawberries and cream.

I mean, how could you not? The sweetest strawberries are in season and what with this hot weather, layered with softly whipped cream, they make the perfect no-bake dessert for Ramadan.

Spicy Coconut + Basil Rice Noodles.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Guys, I am so happy it's summer.
It means there's an abundance of fresh basil in the garden. And, I love adding it to almost anything - stirred into salads, over pizza and now, these noodles.
