Something Fishy!

Today’s post is extra special to me because I’m writing it as a special request by a friend of my younger sister and mine – Aliya baji this one is for you 🙂 On her request for a fish recipe I have been researching for the past two weeks for a new recipe to try…

Mixing it all together!

I was running out of inspiration today for what to cook so I took a look at what I had available and just started cooking. I added in things as and when I found them in my pantry or fridge, honestly! It happens to the best of us! And sometimes it works and gives delicious…

Palak Paneer – how my heart skips a beat!

There is a resturant in Karachi, called Barbeque Tonight, famous for its grilled meats, koftas, ribs, steaks, tikkas, etc., etc., etc.. Celebrities, politicians, dignitaries, foreigners come to dine there and I have to admit their Malai Boti and Shish Tawook koftas are amazing. If you find yourself in the Defence/Clifton area of Karachi, have no…

Satay Chicken skewers – let’s try Thai!

A while back I tried satay sticks at a Asian funk fusion bistro in Abu Dhabi and I was blown away. I never thought peanuts and chicken could go so well together. I am not the kind of person who likes to replicate everything they eat at a restaurant because then I’d very quickly run…

Especially for Mr. Mazhar!

As is my love for pasta, so is Mr. Mazhar’s love for biryani. And even though the idea of cooking biryani always seem daunting to me, I gave it a shot since Mazhar had been such a nice sport about trying out pasta with me. As it turns out it’s not that difficult after all!…
