I wanted to do something with chicken thighs. But my local butcher was out and I was hungry so I caved and bought breasts instead. You can marinade these, but ain’t nobody got time fo dat! If you don’t mind the sugar in the peanut butter or even better, you’ve found a peanut butter without sugar then this is slow carb friendly.
Being a mom of two, nothing attracts me more than recipes that requires very few ingredients and are easy to cook. Chicken Satay is one of them.
First time I cooked this dish was for my housewarming party. There was none left. I made them again yesterday hoping to have some for Iftar. Both my children devoured them and didn't leave any!
Blend peanut butter, red/green chillies, garlic, coconut milk with a pinch of salt to a smooth paste.
Marinate chicken pieces in half of the sauce for 30-60 minutes.
Meanwhile, soak bamboo skewers in water. This prevents them from burning.
Thread chicken pieces onto skewers.
Heat grill to highest temperature.
Grill until both sides are cooked. About ten minutes each.
Enjoy with rest of the sauce and squeezed lime!

Seekh kababs are my favorite variety of kababs. Grilled on skewers also known as seekh, until juicy and succulent, they're just mouth watering. The seekh is a round metal skewer, however I used bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water (to prevent them from burning when grilling). You can use any kind of ground meat for this - beef, lamb or chicken. Traditionally, seekh kebabs are grilled in a tandoor (clay oven), that has temperatures as high as 800°F.
Being a mom of two, simple but delicious recipes attract me the most. I've made this recipe several times and is one of the staple dishes in my son's lunchbox. When I cooked this dish for lunch today, my son tells me 'Umma, this is very very good!' What else do you want to hear from your 5 year old? ;) The original recipe doesn't call for vegetables. However, I love grilled veggies and love how they add colour. You can use whatever vegetables you like really. No rules there. Recipe adapated from Ariana Bundy's cook book 'Pomegranates and Roses'.
A quick, simple and healthy recipe that you could use for Iftar. I had a jar of Thai red curry paste that I had purchased to try out a recipe, which I never did. While searching for a grilled chicken recipe that used the paste, I came across this one and decided to give it a try.
Pathiri, a delicacy from the southern state of Kerala, is a flat bread made with rice flour. It is very popular in the Malabar region, especially among the Muslims. When we have guests, there is nothing more satisfying than serving Pathiri with some chicken or beef curry. My mother makes them very often, but during the month of Ramzan this is a must have for dinner.
My Favorite Sandwich! An open-faced blend of delightful textures and flavors with a 40/40/20 macro split. It's one of those sandwiches during which I say "Damn! I love this sandwich!" each time. This sandwich has my best friend peanut butter on it!
How many of us like yummy deep-fried goodies once in a while?! Over weekends, you will agree we all like to have some special food to enjoy family time. How about some delicious home-made Chicken Nuggets rather than store-bought frozen nuggets! Chicken marinated with pepper-salt and crumb fried with a rich coating of bread crumbs is quite the snack to devour on a lazy weekend. And don't have any regrets because they are definitely healthier than the ones you get from any hotel or cold-store. This works extremely well as a starter or just simply something that you can munch on. I encourage everyone trying out this recipe to use their imagination and be a little creative. You could even throw in a few Indian or Oriental spices to give it a whole new flavor. Nothing against store-bought nuggets, but these nuggets are healthier and big on taste. Go ahead and feel free to try different ingredients to personalize it.
