Fish Karahi :
What do your tastebuds crave on a super cold, windy, rainy day? I want a smouldering curry with piping hot Naan !

"Karahi ” is a quick n simple, one pot , tomato based curry, made with very basic spices and topped with lots of herbs, ginger and green chilli peppers.

Fish Karahi is a relatively new take on the traditional chicken/lamb Karahi recipe but equally delicious and gets done in even less time.

Borani Esfanaaj, Yogurt Spinach Dip :
A 10 minute recipe with cool creaminess of yogurt, crunch from nuts and seeds and loads of wonderful flavour from sautéed spinach, garlic and crispy fried onions.

This nutrient rich and delicious bowl of Yogurt spinach dip topped with walnuts and drizzled with olive oil is a unique way of incorporating spinach in your daily diet .

Tastes great served with bread, crunchy vegetables or kebobs.Though it’s served as a dip or side in the Iranian cuisine but for me it’s a complete light lunch in a bowl even on it's own.

Patta Gobi ki Sabzi, Spicy Stir Fried Cabbage :

Sometimes the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is make dinner . Cooking one pan meals and cooking in bulk is my simple solution to this problem .

A gorgeous little cabbage head, some green onions and a few sprigs of fresh coriander with a handful of spice cupboard staples can create this mini feast , super easy and quick dish from the Sindhi cuisine. You can also add boiled gram lentils to change it into a more filling meal.

Kala Chana Shorba, Black Chickpeas Soup :

Did you know black chick peas are richer in fat free, high quality protein and complex carbohydrates than white chickpeas ! The soup is perfectly comforting and it helps build antibodies to fight cold and at the same time provides long lasting energy to the body.

This Shorba also contains, garlic, ginger, black pepper and turmeric, all ingredients acknowledged in Ayurvedic medicine as antibacterial, antiviral, anti histamine and anti-inflammatory . A squeeze of lemon on top and you have viamin C included in the recipe.

The day just got better and brighter with this beautiful testimonial from my friend, +rick van elswijk​ .

If you are not following Rick on G +, you are seriously missing out on some great stuff that he shares. His posts on windmills, travels and art are amazing but my most favorite is his Food and Bread Made with Passion Collection. Check here https://plus.google.com/collection/EPr2c
I made a delicious "easy chicken coconut curry" I've used a recipe from +maria nasir​, she is by far the master of the chicken dishes, as a side dish I made some pumpkin rice.

Easy Chicken Coconut Curry :
Valentine's Day Recipes
“Eating is so intimate. It’s very sensual. When you invite someone to sit at your table and you want to cook for them, you’re inviting a person into your life .”
Maya Angelou

This Valentine's Day sizzle things up with aromas of spices in the air and a delicious curry on the table for two .

You’ve got sweetness from onions and coconut milk, tang from tomatoes and lemon, heat from green chilli and spices. The tender chicken in creamy curry is quite a fantastic party going on in your mouth.

You can go the pretty traditional/hackneyed way of taking your partner out for a romantic meal OR you can do something original - cook a delicious meal yourself.
Personally, I can't live without cooking and my spice collection . What can be better than a good home cooked curry to share with your loved ones!

This one is prepare-ahead, easy enough even for newbies, gets done within 30 minutes, tastes better than any takeaway .
