Kaali daal or khari masoor ki daal | Black gram lentils

Kaali daal or khari masoor ki daal is a popular vegetarian / vegan Pakistani lentil recipe made with black gram lentils. It can be served with chawal (rice) or roti.   One of my favourite meals is kaali daal with chawal. The actual name of the daal is khari masoor ki daal or sabut masoor ki daal but it’s commonly known as kaali daal in Urdu. Probably because the type of lentils used are black gram lentils which are well…

Vegetable Jalfrezi

Onions, carrots, potatoes, capsicum, corn and more come together to make this super vibrant restaurant style vegetable jalfrezi. Serve this vegetarian / vegan dish with rice on the side. I had an abundance of leftover vegetables in the fridge. By leftover, I mean half a capsicum, one onion, a one serving bag of mixed frozen vegetables, and frozen peas. Not enough to make a dish on their own so I just wanted a recipe in which I can use everything…

Different from the regular chicken handi, this zeera chicken handi is made using green chili, lots of bhuna zeera (roasted cumin) and of course yoghurt and cream to make a rich gravy.

Bhindi ki Sabzi | Pakistani style okra vegetable

A simple Pakistani style bhindi ki sabzi made with sliced onions and spices finished off with lemon juice. This vegetarian / vegan recipe can be enjoyed with garma garam chapatti. Bhindi / okra is one of my most favourite vegetables to cook with, and has to be a part of my weekly dinner menu. Once a week for sure, though more than that is just as appreciated. I was so sad to find out that bhindi isn’t common in Australia…

Tandoori fish wraps

Tandoori fish wraps (or a Pakistani take on fish tacos) have a filling of tandoori masala spiced fish, caramelized vegetables, and a yoghurt sauce can be served as a filling dinner or a quick snack. It’s always difficult to decide what to make for dinner, especially when I get bored of the usual weekly meal plans. What I do then is open up the fridge, make a list of things that are available and things that need to be used…
