Desi Chicken Patties

This simple recipe will take you back to the Desi chicken patties you used to get from the corner bakery. Crisp & flaky puff golden pastry filled with shredded chicken in a creamy white sauce. Fresh from the bakery oven, these Desi chicken patties were (still are) one of my favorite childhood snacks. Crispy puff pastry that kept on flaking with every bite, the ‘milky’ chicken filling and the top circle of puff pastry that we would eat plain or…

Chicken Cheese Balls

Sharing another recipe that I tried this Ramazan and absolutely loved – Chicken Cheese Balls. I am a huge fan of the Jalapeno Cheese balls at Pizzo – they are filled with melted cheese which literally explodes in your mouth. Since I can’t keep ordering from there all the time, this was my take on something similar. Turned out really good especially with the melted cheese inside. This is a recipe that I can see myself making in Ramadan (inshAllah the next…

Peri Peri Chicken Sandwich

Another experiment this Ramadan which Alhamdullilah turned out really well. I was planning to make grilled chicken & cheese subway style sandwiches using French bread but the store near my place was out of it. Since I really couldn’t change recipes at that time, I decided to just buy multi-grain bread and proceed from there. I was expecting these to just taste like typical sandwiches but baking them in the oven instead of in the toaster oven individually just made…

Cheesy Potato Skins

I decided to make potato skins today – I made them at 7:30 pm for Iftar and I am now typing the recipe at 1:49 am in the morning.  This is probably the first time I have typed out a recipe this quickly but I did not anticipate the amount of requests I would get for this recipe.    Of course, the fact that I shared it on my own Facebook page, on other Facebook forums, Instagram & Twitter might have…

Guacamole

I was just checking out my blog stats and I am done to about 20-40 pageviews a day from a considerably high number earlier. Just goes to show what happens if I don’t update this blog on a regular basis (Ouch).  But I am resolving to spend a bit more time on posting recipes since I have been receiving some amazing feedback on how much my recipes are being enjoyed by people! So just motivated to share more. Will probably…

Kung Pao Chicken Wontons made Square

 This Ramazan I decided to try my hand at making Wontons. I had bookmarked this recipe a long time back from this Desi blog that I follow titled “Hunger & Haw Hai“. The recipe itself was totally my style since it featured one of my favourite Chinese dishes as the basis of the filling.   Unfortunately, all my dreams of my wontons looking similar to the stunning photographs of the original recipe failed. The wonton sheets that I had gotten…

Potato and chicken croquettes

These crispy and crunchy potato and chicken croquettes are made with mashed potato, chicken, capsicum and noodles coated with breadcrumbs to create a delicious fried snack.   I remember the time a company launched frozen croquettes back in Pakistan. I had them at a friends place and absolutely loved them. Little oval balls of mashed potatoes and chicken coated with bread crumbs and fried till crispy. As much as I loved eating them, they were on the pricey and buying them…
