Parmesan Crumbed (Air) Fried Fish

We aren’t an avid fish eaters so whenever fish finds its way to our home along with the groceries, I try to make sure that it’s good enough to consume. Last week, I asked HI to bring some fish from the super market so that I can fix a quick dinner, he asked me which fish to bring and I told him “Any”. Like literally, I had nothing in my mind. Anyways, he brought Hoki and I was glad. I decided to air fry it not because had a healthy mean plan in mind but because I wanted to see how it’s done in it. Haha.

Authentic Karachi-Street Style Bun Kababs

The last time I had Bun Kabab from ‘thela‘ (mobile cart) was 2 years ago, we were on a brief trip to Karachi, I was 7 months pregnant with Jucy Yusi and despite of clear instructions from midwife to eat only healthy food, I went ahead with consuming it coz how can you not have bun kabab when you are in Karachi? (I had to face the consequence after wards in the form of diarrhea but that’s another story). So, this lockdown, I started craving for bun kababs and the only way I could have them here (whether it’s lockdown or no lockdown) is to make myself. There’s no way out! Once you start craving anything, you’re trapped. You are the only one who can get you out, else it will keep haunting you. The irony. Anyways, with the craving increasing day by day, I gave in and made it so that I can move ahead with life.

BBQ Honey Wings

BBQ Honey Wings

Adding to ‘Bites‘ section the easiest, quickest and most wanted recipe of all. I experimented these wings directly in the production environment ( i.e. in my Pizza parties- I have talked about one with a picture posted on Facebook and Instagram) without running them through a test one (which corresponds to testing out a dish at home before finalizing it as a menu item for any party). I was so sure that this is gonna be a hit (actually I think the same for every recipe I try… lol) and believe it or not this one did turn out to be THE HIT item on the table in the parties every single time. Which stimulated the huge demand for the said recipe and that is the reason I am uploading this before all the others which are waiting in the pipeline to be shared.

You stay at home – You don’t do anything!

Generally, I don’t get to hear negative statements about myself. Naaa, It’s not because I am so good that people don’t get a chance to pass their precious comments about me – Nope, not at all! lol. The reason is that I totally avoid such toxic, judgmental, I-know-it-all kinda peeps… trust me this is the best way to dodge away those pessimistic statements and lead a happy care-free life.

However, there are days when you are bound to get scrutinized by people from such shitty mentality clan and you Continue reading “You stay at home – You don’t do anything!”

PERI PERI (Baked) Chicken with PERI PERI Rice

Winters and comfort food compliment each other A LOT. For me, comfort food is something which requires less effort to cook AND tastes palatable. The same definition can be applied to my kitchen motto as well. (… and you know it, right?)

Lately, I was relying so much on my already experimented recipes and was not attempting anything new in the kitchen. Why? Partly because I was Continue reading “PERI PERI (Baked) Chicken with PERI PERI Rice”
