Achaar Ka Kheema (Ground Beef in a Spicy Tomato Sauce)

Growing up I was a very picky eater.  I feel bad how much I bothered my mom.  I rarely ever took second helpings...but when my mom made Achaar Ka Kheema I always helped myself to some more.  I loved this dish growing up.  It is very easy to make..it smells amazing but the downside is that your home will smell like this dish for a couple of days afterwards. This dish tastes best with some hot roti or naan.  You have to make your own Achaar Masala which is very simple to do. I usually make a bunch and keep it in a jar so I have it on hand whenever I want to make this dish.  I also always keep a tin of canned tomatoes just so I can make this dish.  My version is basically the same as my mom's but I use a lot less oil.

Low Fat Butter Chicken - Updated


It's been a long time since I've posted and I have not been posting regularly for the past couple of years.  I've been contemplating what is it that I want for this blog.  There was a time when I was very active and working with a lot of brands.  But as life goes on, other things have taken precedence over blogging.  After thinking about the future of this blog, I've decided that I want it to be a place to record my mom's Hyderabadi recipes that I grew up on and the dishes my kids are growing up with.  A place where we can reference back to and to record our culinary history.

A Special Eid Freebie!

Today I have something special for all of you!  I am collabrating with my cousin, the very talented Naseeba from Illustrating NK, to share with you two free printable Eid card that she designed.  Naseeba and I have grown up together and our families have always been very close.  Growing up, we all knew how extremely talented she was.  I was always in awe (and a little jealous) of her amazing sketches.  She has her own distinct style and whenever I see one of her drawings, I can immediately tell it belongs to her.

Crispy Spiralized Sweet Potato


Lately I've been trying to add more Sweet Potatoes to our diet.  I've always had a tough time with making Sweet Potato Fries as I can never get them crisp.  Recently, I tried spiralizing them and baking and they turned out great!  The kids ate them up with no complaints.  They are simply seasoned with extra-virgin olive oil and salt.

Originally I had a hand held spiralizer and it was difficult to use.  I bought the spiralizer attachment for my mixer and it has made spiralizing much easier.  After you have spiralized your sweet potato, you are left with a core.  I slice this up and mix in with my potatoes.  I also don't peel my potato.
