One Pan Tandoori Chicken Bake


This is a recipe my mom would make for us as kids.  The difference between my mom's and mine, is that I've used boneless chicken to speed up the cooking and I've added onion and a green pepper.  I've also added some cornstarch to help thicken the sauce. 

My boys loved to have this with rice and Masoor Ki Daal.  It's best to marinate overnight, but most times I don't because I'm not thinking that much in advance.

Banana Cake with Lemon Icing


Growing up, whenever we had extra and overripe bananas my mom would make this cake for us.  It was a favourite!  I loved the combination of banana and the lemon icing.  For the best results, use three very ripe bananas.  I don't know the original source for the recipe.  My mom would have these little pieces of paper that looked like tracing paper with recipes typed up on them.

Naseeba if you are reading this...I made this cake for Eid when you were away for Hajj...that is how behind I am on my posts...Lol...

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.
