Strawberry Sorbet

Today, I share with you a ‘recipe’ that is in my mind, incomparable As you can probably tell by our ice cream experiments (Avocado Kiwi Ice Cream, Counterfeit Ice Cream, and Cookies and Cream Ice Cream), and my freezing food bananza, (Frozen Cubes series featuring: tomato paste, avocado, and curry paste) I love the freezer. Like…

Frozen Cubes: Curry paste

Part 3 of my Frozen Cubes Series. Also check out: Tomato Paste Cubes and Avocado Cubes Frozen Curry cubes! This can save you so much time and effort. Seriously. Maybe smart people already do this, but I discovered it by accident. I was actually supposed to be making chicken and vegetable Biryani. I started with…

Dips, Dips, Dips!

I think I’ve discovered a new way of life: Dips. It all started when I needed to make a quick meal, and I knew we had bread. And sour cream. Hence, a Honey Mustard Dip: Mustard sauce, Honey, Sour Cream (or yogurt), fry (well) some onion for flavour with my epic garlic paste and salt! Mr. Skeptical-pants…

Garlic and Basil Mashed Potato

You know that moment when you’re hungry and you’re thinking: Now today I had a plan, the plan was not mashed potato. It was sautéed potato. I realised half way through the sauté-ing process that I really should have boiled them first. So I boiled them. By the time I remembered to check on them,…

Cheesy Béchamel Lasagne

So the other day I remembered that I really, really, really liked Basil and Cheese. There are many things one can put Basil and Cheese in; the fridge, the cupboard, food. Having already achieved the first two in a mere minute, I decided to attempt the latter; partly for completion and partly because the main…

Cheesy Baked Broccoli

Consider these propositions: You have broccoli in your fridge that needs to be used You do not like/want to be wasting precious and healthy broccoli stalks You have been instructed/requested not to overcook broccoli You are craving something cheesy/white sauce-y What would you do? What would any of you do? Well, this is what I…

(S)Mashed Potato with Tomato Sauce

When brother is home I use him expect his dependability in very specific roles: Pest exterminator, lighstaber duel opponent, tv watching companion, family debate neutraliser, and of course, potato masher. Practically born a geologist, his attention to detail ensures beyond satisfactory levels of potato mashed-ness. And so before he deserts me to his northern home…

Mint Chutney

This is a recipe adapted from Singapore Food by Wendy Hutton. I highly highly recommend this book. I know what you will say to me, youngest of sisters.  Well despite that, or perhaps because of it, the recipes in it that I have tried so far have come out really well alhamdulillah. Just so you…

Potato Mice

Here we have a mouse.  Not any kind of mouse,  a jacket potato mouse inspired by a recipe in an Annabel Karmel cookbook. We roasted some potatoes after generously painting the potato with olive oil-there were some very enthusiastic painters. We could have used our hands I guess, but we have a pink food brush…

Cheesy Baked Spinach

I decided to conduct my very own health check today, and I diagnosed myself with a cheese deficiency. I had to act quickly to prevent serious health risks. I found this on Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice, and swiftly sought to correct my nutrition imbalance. If you ever find yourself in my situation, follow these instructions: Without…

Yoghurty-Cumin Baked Potato

Probably the first of many baked potato variations to enter our blog. This particular version had the good fortune to witness a rather entertaining session of Pakistan batting and England dropping catches (three and counting). This was a bit of an improvised spin on SFizzles classic cumin-baked-potato recipe. I decided it needed a topping. Also…

Capsicum Masala

That’s c-a-p-s-i-c-u-m. Capsicum. For anyone who’s interested to know why it’s NOT a pepper, please refer to the comment section of ShFizzle’s beautiful Tuna Salad. I wanted to eat capsicum today and I realised if I let myself also use spinach, as I so wished, I would wind up with exactly the same thing I’ve…
