Chicken Paprika Stroganoff

This delicious chicken paprika stroganoff is made from boneless chicken with mushrooms in a rich & creamy paprika based sauce. This is another recipe discovered quite by chance when I was looking for something to make for dinner. I was combing through my recipe books and searching through bookmarked recipes when I came across a recipe for chicken stroganoff. The recipe piqued my interest because it had mushrooms (which I absolutely love) but I just wanted to make it more…

Baked Chicken and Vegetables

This recipe comprises of baked chicken and vegetables tossed with spices, and made in one baking tray so it’s simple, healthy and delicious. Have been trying to eat healthy for the past month or so. It’s been tough. Not that the food is bland or tasteless. I am NOT going to let that happen. But what I find challenging is figuring out what to cook and the meal prep involved. Just to give you an idea here’s what a regular…

Shepherd’s Pie

This comforting Shepherd’s Pie consists of a layer of chicken mince with vegetables, a light sprinkle of cheese and creamy mashed potatoes on top.

All these thoughts in my mind made me come up with this Shepherd’s Pie recipe. I made it for friends at a…

Peri Bites

Peri Bites are green chilies stuffed with chicken & cheese; dipped in breadcrumbs and fried till golden. They make you ask for a glass of water but you still keep asking for more. It’s the month of Ramazan and as much as we plan not to, we end up focusing on the food. Every year I think that this year I am going to keep it simple; not spend much time in the kitchen and eat healthy. But inevitably I…

Qeema Bhari Shimla Mirch

I was invited to a blogger’s meet-up by National Foods Limited this Chand Raat at Pranzo. The purpose of the event was two-fold. First was to share their fusion recipes created for Ramazan in collaboration with Chef Saadat. Second was a continuation of their Made Easy campaign with the launch of the ‘Made Easy’ mobile application. Unfortunately, I got a bit late to the event but from what I was reading on Twitter, the event started off with Chef Saadat…

Pakistani Aloo Keema

A staple Pakistani meal, Aloo keema is made using minced meat (aka keema) and potatoes in a dry gravy. I love Aloo Keema! Not plain Keema or Matar Keema or Piyaaz Keema. What I love love is Aloo Keema. I know this entire recipe can be made with matar (aka peas) but it just won’t be the same till there’s at least one potato in it! That’s also why this recipe states using anywhere from 2 potatoes to 4 potatoes.…
