Jammie dodgers

A very cute and amazing friend gifted me smiley cookie cutters, so I thought why not make some jammie dodgers - a lovely buttery biscuit that you place jam inside. I also added nutella to some of them instead.

Lamb nihari

I was so excited to have two days off for christmas and boxing day, so I asked what you suggest/request me to make. One of the suggestions was the Pakistani nihari, which I found very appealing - mainly because I love trying out dishes I have never heard of from different parts of the world - and now is the perfect time to challenge oneself.

The recipe is not difficult but is timely. It took just over 4 hours from start to finish! But the end result is worth the effort! I have left in some ingredients below in case you have them on hand, but have written if I omitted or replaced with something. Also, my family are not big fans of ghee, and for this reason I excluded it completely and only used oil.

Vanilla sponge cake

Yesterday I was at my friend's home and her mother served us some delicious cake! So after work today, I really felt like making the same cake, so I got the recipe and here it is! The ingredients are soo simple, and there is room for your imagination.
