Instant Korean Pickled Cucumber
Simple. Bold. Fresh . Everything what we look for in a summer condiment/side to wake up the lazy appetite.

It's sour, salty, sweet and hot at the same time. It's actually more a seasoned fresh salad that goes great with most summer mains, BBQs, crispy fried food, wraps and sandwiches.

My favourite way to enjoy it is by topping a toasted slice of bread with some cheese and these spunky cucumbers .

http://www.foodaholic.biz/kashmiri-chokhta-pan-roasted-lamb/

An unbelievably easy recipe for a pan roasted lamb from the delicious and rich Kashmiri cuisine. Basically it has only five ingredients , if we don’t count oil and water. There is no chopping, blending or frying of masala involved. Doesn’t it sound like a blessing already ?!

Weekend is a good time to declutter .
Clearing clutter—be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual—brings about ease and inspires a sense of peace, calm, and tranquility .

Have a cool weekend!

Golbheda ko Achar, Nepali Tomato Pickle Recipe :

http://www.foodaholic.biz/golbheda-ko-achar-nepali-tomato-pickle-recipe/

South Asian food is rooted heavily in layering of flavors - condiments are an essential part of this experience .

Transform your simple meal in minutes with this chunky tomato chutney.

Roasted tomatoes cooked with fenugreek, mustard, ginger and garlic make a mouthwatering and versatile condiment.

Spread in sandwiches and wraps, dip your finger food, use as excellent pizza sauce with South Asian flavours. My favourite way to eat it is with some creamy red lentils and crispy layered paratha .

I know it is near impossible to make an inedible batch of brownies, right ! But if you want to dress them up for a memorable treat, a layer of fluffy marshmallows, assorted nuts and chocolate chips is the yummiest way to do it .

Let's make some warm, gooey, sweet memories with your kids before another summer is over!

How often do you find time to connect with yourself ? For me it's usually Friday afternoons when the weekday routine has calmed down and the weekend hustle is yet to begin.

Sometimes it's green tea and a good book, at others my paints and sketchbook or simply sitting outside, listening to the birds.
Have a lovely weekend ahead, friends !

+maria nasir's Easy Vegetable Biryani

Second biryani in line to try was Maria's easy vegetable biryani. For all of you out there, who have yet to try a biryani dish, let me just tell - it's such an odyssey in the kitchen! If you are a westerner, this is simply too much fun! Even my husband came out of his "cave" intrigued of what I'm trying out (I shared with him that every Sunday I'll try a new biryani recipe)!

With this recipe, I realized I've yet to conquer cooking the rice in a fluffy way, and my hope is that on this journey I'll maybe come a bit closer to my goal 🙂

Thank you, Maria, from two happy people in Turkey, enjoying your wonderful dishes!

Get Recipe Here
http://www.foodaholic.biz/punjabi-tinda-shorba-apple-gourd-curry/
This punjabi style, vegetarian , healthy soupy gravy dish is simple to prepare in an onion tomato base. Tastes great seasoned with mint, lemon juice and garam masala (mixed spice blend).

Apple gourds are 94 % water, therefore light on stomach, good for summer digestion and natural coolants .

Serve with rice or roti.
