Hello there – I am so happy that you dropped by!
My name is Kiran, and welcome to my kitchen. Here you will find Pakistani and Indian recipes and delicious desserts. I am all about taking every day traditional South Asian recipes and elevating them for the modern kitchen.
What you will find on the blog?
Most of the recipes I share on this blog are inspired by my Pakistani heritage – the flavors and ingredients I grew up eating. Baking is my first love in the kitchen, so you will find lots of desserts, particularly biscuits and baked goodies that are perfect with a cup of chai. I love to eat and experiment so you will see recipes from other cuisines as well. Just with a South Asian fusion twist. Do check out my guide on how to create a cheeseboard for South Asians.
One of the biggest struggles in learning to cook Pakistani food is that recipes are passed down from one generation to the next. And they are taught by the ‘andaza’ or estimate method. Instead of teaspoons and tablespoons, it’s a little of this, and a little of that. So it can be super difficult to replicate the same taste in your kitchen. More so if you are abroad, where the ingredients also taste different.
This is why I give detailed step by step instructions in the recipes I share with you. So you can replicate the same flavors in your kitchen. Having lived through the struggles of setting up a Pakistani kitchen in a foreign country, I also regularly share cooking guides and tutorials om how to cook Pakistani and South Asian. My guide on how to stock a Pakistani pantry includes a grocery printable that will set you on your way to set up your kitchen.
As much as I enjoy to cook and eat, I believe in being smart in the kitchen. The recipes I share are rooted in tradition, but they are simplified and made easy for the contemporary kitchen. So you can cook delicious and wholesome food in less time.
A little bit about me
I was born in Karachi, Pakistan and that’s where I spent most of my adult life. I recently moved to Australia, and it’s been an amazing journey exploring this part of the world. I am still coming to terms with the opposite seasons here though. That’s why you will see me posting about soups and hot chocolate in June and mangoes in December.
