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.

As always, Ramadan just flew by!  It feels like it was yesterday that we announced the details for Eid Eats 2018.  I hope everyone is having a blessed Ramadan and taking advantage of the last ten nights.  I would also like to wish everyone an early Eid Mubarak from my family to yours!

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.

Hazelnut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies & Eid Eats 2018


I can't believe Ramadan will be here in one month!  Time goes by so quickly!  This also means that it's time to announce the fifth edition of Eid Eats!  I am hosting this event with my friends Henna from Chai & Churros and Sarah from Flour & Spice.  Head on over to their blogs to see what they are sharing for today's Eid Eats announcement!

For those of you unfamiliar with Eid Eats, it a virtual potluck where we all share a dish that we would make on Eid.  The event will be going live on June 10, 2018.  Scroll down to the bottom of this post to get all the details!

To start things off, today I'm sharing some delicious Hazelnut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that are some of the best cookies I've ever had!  The recipe for these cookies are from Henna's blog.  She originally made them with Almond Butter.  I had Hazelnut Butter in the fridge and was thinking maybe they may have a Nutella flavour to them.  They didn't quite taste like Nutella but they were amazing!  I made half the recipe below and they were gone in no time!  My boys couldn't stop raving about them.  You could use whatever nut butter you have on hand for these and I'm sure they would turn out great!

Simple Veal Koftay {Indian Veal Meatball Curry}


Growing up one of my favourite dishes was Koftay. My mom made them in the Hyderabadi style.  They are delicious but a little time consuming to make.  I adapted this recipe from Kashmiri Foodie.  Following her recipes, I have been reminded that you don't need a lot of ingredients to make delicious food!  This recipe uses minimal spices, is simple to make and it's delicious! My boys gave me raving reviews when I made these the first time!  I have made them many times since as they are quick and easy to make.  We enjoy them with roti or naan but I'm sure they would be delicious with some Basmati rice as well.
