Simple-Fish-Biryani

Simple Fish Biryani

I almost always have some Tilapia fish in my freezer since my little one loves it so much so this biryani recipe is one of those that I make very often. It is such a simple recipe and yet so scrumptious. It is also one of the easiest and quickest biryani you will ever make.

coconut-vegetable-pilau

Coconut & Vegetable Pilau

This cold weather calls for a warm and hearty plate for coconut and vegetable pilau. I love coconut in rice and the coconut in this dish marries with the spices in the rice so beautifully. This has got to be one of my favourite Pilau dishes.

Kheer-Indian-Rice-Pudding

Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding)

Kheer is an integral part of every Indian’s home. I don’t know why but it is one of those comforting desserts that just bring a smile to my face. My recipe has the perfect balance of sweetness and a bite from the rice and nuts as well as a beautiful aroma from the saffron.

Green-gram-makhani

Green Gram Makhani

My green gram makhani served with some Indian style roti’s makes the perfect comfort meal for a cool night. The word “makhani” refers to “with butter” and the addition of butter in this dish gives it that perfect smooth finish whilst the double cream makes a rich curry base. I use a smoking method in this recipe using hot coat and butter to give it a smoky taste and take the dish to a whole new flavour level.

Chicken-Tikka-Masala

Restaurant Style Chicken Tikka Masala

If there is one dish on every Indian restaurant menu, it has to be the chicken tikka masala. This dish consists of perfectly grilled chicken cubes marinated in a flavourful mix of yoghurt and spices mixed into a beautifully cooked curry sauce consisting of a tomato base. Give the dish even more flavour by grilling the chicken over an open flame on a jiko to give it that yummy barbecue taste and aroma. Enjoy this dish with a side of steamed or jeera rice.

Easy-Chicken-Biryani

Easy Chicken Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a beautifully flavoured rice dish that is often layered with a spiced chicken/mutton/beef/vegetarian gravy and rice that is infused with whole spices. Traditionally, a chicken biryani involves a lot of steps including marinating the meat, frying the vegetables for layering, loads of coriander and mint leaves, fried eggs, saffron milk etc. My version is a simplified recipe that gives you those exquisite flavours.
Serve with some plain yoghurt and lemon pickle or kachumbari.

Rice-Pudla-Indian-Savoury-Pancakes

Rice Pudla (Savoury Indian Pancakes)

Indian pancakes are a staple in almost every Indian household. This is because of how quick they are to make, use up all the left over rice and often use ingredients that are already available in the pantry. This recipe of Rice Pudla or Savoury Indian Pancakes is exactly the definition above.

Lamb-kofta-meatball-curry

Lamb Kofta (Meatball) Curry

This lamb kofta curry is one that won’t take hours to cook and guess what, it doesn’t require you to brown the kofta (meatballs) either. Enjoy this fragrant dish with a side of steamed basmati or jeera rice or some hot chapati’s.
