Authentic Pakistani Seikh kabobs and Chapli kabobs

Note to self: The one thing that everyone asks my mom about her kabobs is how she gets them super soft and succulent. From customers at the restaurant to hotel wedding managers for catering orders everyone dies to know how they’re made. And until today it was a very well guarded secret that she allowed…

Authentic Pakistani Chicken Tikka Masala

Note to self: This is one of the easiest Pakistani recipes you can make! Trust me, it’s so delicious and simple AND it doesn’t even require a lot of ingredients! Lately, i’ve been trying to jot down and learn as many recipes as I can from my mom. But it seems that no matter how…

Leftover Biryani Lettuce Cups

Note to self: This is a super healthy and fun way to eat leftovers…Just pop them into some lettuce cups, add a yummy sauce and that’s basically it. It should be a crime at how simple and fast this is. I was debating whether even to put up a video because legit it’s less than…

Authentic Pakistani Chunky Raita (Veggie yogurt chutney sauce)

Note to self: Raita in itself is super yummy but there’s something fun and fresh about adding veggies into the mix. Adding a combination of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers gives the raita a bite to it and it’s super yummy to eat with biryani and kabobs. Especially if you put it into a burger or wrap. If…

Leftover Biryani Chinese Fried Rice

Note to self: I ended up making waaay too much biryani for 2 people. At this rate I think we would be eating it breakfast, lunch and dinner for a week so I wanted to find creative ways to repurpose it so we wouldn’t be eating the same thing every day. I thought about how…

Authentic Pakistani Raita (Yogurt cilantro chutney sauce)

Note to self: Sometimes, even more than the main course, the most important part of the meal is the sauces that accompany it. We’re a total saucy family…pun intended. 😉 But no, really…Even with curries and the like we prefer the sauce over actual meat. And don’t get me started if we ever go out…

Authentic Pakistani Chicken Biryani (Chicken and Rice)

Note to self: Biryani is the holy grail of Pakistani cuisine. No one makes it better than yo mamma and there have been feuds over whose biryani ranks supreme. I know for most people biryani is a special occasion kind of meal… isn’t made often because of all the effort it takes but the best…

Authentic Pakistani Green Chutney

Note to self: Green chutney…lol I have no idea why we call it that…I don’t know if it’s only in our household or if it’s something that known throughout all Pakistani households. But it’s all I’ve ever known it by. My siblings and I have called it that since we were kids and it just…

Authentic Pakistani Goat Korma (Goat Curry)

Note to self: Korma is a classic. Total traditional staple of Pakistani cuisine. It’s a tomato/onion based curry full of fragrant spices and hearty tender meat. I decided to make this bc our local halal grocery store had this wonderful leg of fresh goat that came in that day and it inspired this dish. Oh!…

Authentic Kashmiri Chai (Pink tea)

Note to self: In Pakistan the most coveted tea is Kashmiri chai (also known as pink tea). It’s coveted because it takes so long to make and that it’s really hard to get that perfect pink color. I personally never had it though I probably should’ve gotten a cup when I went to Pakistan last…

Sweet Lassi and Namkeen (Salted Lassi)

Lassi is a sweet, rich, Pakistani yogurt based milkshake that’s popular in Punjab and northern Pakistan. (I’m half Punjabi 🙂 from my mom’s side so it’s like a must to know how to make these yummy concoctions) Lassi a traditional drink that’s really refreshing on a hot summer’s day…or any day really. All day err…
