Hi all, I’m now back at home after a week’s trip to South Yorkshire to visit my in-laws. My motherinlaw’s cooking is one of the best authentic Pakistani foods I’ve eaten so after watching her in the kitchen viewing the ingredients she uses, I bought my own stack of ingredients while being there!!
Ingredients: haldi (turmeric) powder, dhania (coriander) powder, cinnamon powder, black seeds, and gram flour.
One of my favourite side-dishes she made was Pakora’s – which gram flour is needed.
Pakoras are created by taking one or two ingredients such as onion, eggplant, potato, spinach, plantain,paneer, cauliflower, tomato, chili pepper, or occasionally bread or chicken and dipping them in a batter of gram flour and then deep-frying them. – Wikipedia
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures of the food (was too busy eating all of it!) but the variety was anything from chicken curry, egg curry, daal curry (lentils), chicken biryani, meat kofta with boiled eggs (which I would definitely like to try out!) and many more!
So for my next recipes there will be an asian twist to them as well as trying out some of my motherinlaw’s authentic Pakistani recipes! Yummy yum!
