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…

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…

How to make Home-Made Paneer or Cottage Cheese

I tried my hand at making Paneer for the first time when I made Palak Paneer just a few days ago. The inspiration being a local company that delivers organic vegetables & organic fresh milk. I ordered some spinach & the buffalo milk for a trial, and instantly the thing that came to my mind was to make Palak Paneer and also try my hand at making Paneer. Paneer is a soft fresh Indian cottage cheese which can be easily…

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…

Croquettes

Have a backlog of recipes that I have been meaning to post and just not getting the time these days. Have just been occupied with work for the past few weeks, and with Ramazan here, its become more busy with the Sehri & Iftar preparations since my mother’s not in town so I have to do the preps myself.  Then with the spare time that I have, I try my best to do as much Ibidat as possible. So yeah,…

Tomato Chutney & Loki ka Raita

One of my favourite meals in the hot summer months is Aalo bharay paratha’s (Paratha’s stuffed with Potatoes) served with Tamatar ki Chutney (Tomato Chutney) & Loki ka Raita (Raita with Bottle gourd). What we usually do is that my mother makes Aalo ka Bhurta for lunch, and then the remaining bhurta is used to make Aalo Paratha’s. That’s my preferred method of having the Raita, but it tastes just as great with roti or a normal paratha and in…
