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.…

Desi Chicken Patties

Fresh from the bakery oven, these Desi chicken patties were (still are) one of my favorite childhood snacks. Crispy puff pastry that kept on flaking with every bite, the ‘milky’ chicken filling and the top circle of puff pastry that we would eat plain or dip in tea. The round ones were always stuffed with chicken, and the triangle ones were usually stuffed with potatoes/vegetables. Unfortunately, concerns of hygiene have limited my intake of chicken patties. Though they are available…

Lemon Garlic Chicken

There are some recipes that you just want to make at once. They make you forget about the list of chores that need to be completed, the tv shows that you could be watching, and instead you are standing in the kitchen with ingredients laid out on the counter.   This lemon garlic chicken was one such recipe for me. Instead of the Chinese styled lemon chicken, this is more of an Italian version where the chicken is first browned,…
