Pan Fried Chicken Liver

There are mixed responses when you ask someone if they like chicken liver or not. Some of them have not tried it, others can’t stand it and many love it. I belong to the latter category of people who love it. The first time I had chicken liver, was when a family member was unwell…

Lentils and Veggies

Recently, I have had a great appreciation for fresh vegetables. Each vegetable has it’s own unique flavor and when combined together, can make a delicious dish. Over the past few weeks, I have been watching ‘Jamie Oliver’s Quick and Easy food’ on Hulu and the way he maximizes flavors from simple ingredients is amazing. This…

Black Peppercorn Chicken

Chicken is probably my favorite non-vegetarian ingredient and my go-to meat if I need to cook for someone! Being classified as a white meat, it’s generally healthier as compared to the red meat. Chicken thighs and legs are the most juiciest and tender and taste great, no matter what the preparation. In this recipe, I…

Cauliflower Roll

Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable which is getting popular by the day. It is similar to broccoli and tastes great when cooked with the right flavors. Back in Kuwait, my family used to grow cauliflowers in the garden and we used to steam and eat them as a side dish along with other veggies. It…

Pork Loin on Beetroot Cream Cheese

Pork is something that I have started eating a lot more, ever since I moved to the US for my higher studies. It can be prepared in many ways like barbecue, slow cooking, pan frying and baking. Over the last few years, I have learnt how to cook pork chops, carnitas, pork butt (shoulder), ribs…

Fried Chicken!

Who doesn’t like Fried Chicken? It’s a guilty pleasure that when seasoned and made well, is a plate full of joy and happiness. I love fried chicken and while it’s not the best food in terms of health and nutrition, it more than makes up for in taste and flavor. The crispy skin on the…

Bell pepper Hummus

Hummus is something which reminds me of my Birthplace – Kuwait. That smooth creamy paste/ dip of chickpeas, tahini and garlic is a perfect add on for chicken, veggies, meat or any other savory entrĂ©e. The dip is so good that it can be eaten with just some pita bread and the combo is still…

Spicy Chilli Chicken

Growing up, one of my favorite things to eat was this paratha roll stuffed with chili chicken that we used to buy from an Indian restaurant back in Kuwait. The roll had soft shredded chicken cooked in traditional Indian spices and flavors along with tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and green chilies. There used to be…

Veggie brunch

Many of us have the misconception that vegetarian food cannot be delicious and is only eaten because it’s good for your health and for many years, I was of the same notion. My parents made sure that I and my siblings always ate our share of the veggies on the table which is a practice…
