Rainy Day Biryani + Crispy Chicken Wings + Double Tacos: 7-13 November 2015.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


how are you?
how was your Monday? mine was pretty cold. it rained so much here over the weekend. but today was much better, alhamdulillah. today, we roasted aubergines, fried sweet potato discs to make crisps and made a sweet, salty veggie filling for a quesadilla dinner tonight. 
sorry for this post being a day late - yesterday was a deliciously slow day.

here's my week:

 Saturday: as the rain poured down outside, we decided to cook a biryani. onions were fried and rice was boiled.
and, drained.
the onions went on for longer, becoming golden brown, crispy and fragrant.
we used lamb mince and potatoes this time, as opposed to chicken mince here.
time to layer!
and, eat!
for pudding, bread pudding with raisins and custard.
 Sunday: fresh jalebis on a drenched Sunday afternoon to celebrate new beginnings.
in the evening, in the kitchen --> chickepea pulao. to cook, use this recipe and replace the peas with tinned chickpeas.
also, the mother fried chicken wings. she par-boiled them and then marinated them in a cornflour yoghurt batter with spices.
before deep-frying!
and, they were amazing!
Monday: drowning my leftovers in this stuff.
hot jalebis with my 4pm cuppa!
Tuesday: shortbread in mid-prick.
this curry on the go!
catching the golden minutes. not hour.
the sun set pretty soon after these photos were taken.
baking these beauties.
dinner --> spicy salmon parcel + potatoes, carrots and peas curry.
Wednesday: this is what happens when I leave things to cool overnight.
sliced - full recipe is here!
dinner prep / lunch time!
batter + salsa + sauce.
fish heaven!
super excited to make these again for all of you!
Thursday: the classic.
battered fish + chips + mushy peas + ketchup.
chopping at dinner.
baked chicken.
ready to assemble.
this was so juicy!
Friday: go-to breakfast --> toast + olive oil spread + scrambled eggs.
weather situation.
dark and very wet.
a day for spicy lamb curry with potatoes.

this time one year ago:
apple pie cookies + autumn sunrises + flourless chocolate cake

lately, on the blog:
pumpkin pie + gingerbread maple cookies + autumn tomato tart
Chicken Madras
Coconut + Raspberry Jam Shortbread Slices


have a lovely week everyone! keep warm - it's freezing out there!
