2016 Recipe Disasters!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

What a fun/embarrassing post this was to write!
When I actually dug into my 2016 photo archives, I was amazed by how many disasters I had had this year and forgotten about. I am the worst when things go wrong in the kitchen.

Achari Bhindi.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's okra with all the flavours of our favourite spiced pickle!
And, it's our new favourite vegetarian curry!

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

These rolls are one of my absolute favourite things to bake and eat!
I admit that until a few years ago, I had never heard of cinnamon rolls.

Criss-Cross Potatoes.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It's my current favourite potato side dish!
And, they're so easy to make and use only three ingredients - potatoes, olive oil and salt.

Brown Daal.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

The perfect hot dinner for a meatless Monday!
In our house, we try our best to eat as many vegetarian and fish meals as possible.

Brown Butter Pecan Pie Bars.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

These bars were the first thing I ever baked with pecans.
Can you believe it had taken me so long to use these nuts in my baking? It's probably because I don't really bake with nuts in general. But after these bars, I have been converted.

Hot Chocolate with Gingerbread Whipped Cream.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Can you believe that I never used to like hot chocolate?
That is, until I made my own. I had tried plenty of ready-made versions but they were just never chocolatey enough for me.

Lamb Biryani.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Happy Monday!
How's your day going so far? Alhamdulillah, we finally have a little sunshine here after days of endless cloud. Let's hope it lasts. I love sunny days because they always put me in a good mood. Although for some reason, I prefer cloudy days for shooting food photos. Somehow, the light is always a little better and not too harsh.

Pooris.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Just in time for your weekend breakfast!

Today, I'm sharing my Mother's recipe for pooris. These fried breads are the ultimate when you're pulling out all the stops and cooking the traditional Pakistani breakfast at home.

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.
