Chilli butternut squash soup with crème fraîche

If you are looking to make something delicious, easy and full of flavour - then this soup is perfect. You can adjust the chilli amount to suit you, I added two de-seeded chillis, and it gave that kick to the soup, yet maintaining the yummy flavour from the roasted butternut squash.

No bake lemon cheesecake with a ginger biscuit base

I am not the greatest fan of ginger, but I was highly recommended to try the combination of a lemon cheesecake with a ginger that is exactly what I did. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised, because I am not a great fan of ginger biscuits - but this combination was indeed very yummy!

Oven fried chicken

So basically, you go through the process of making a 'fried' chicken, but instead of frying it, you put it in the oven! Healthier, with the delicious flavour of the chicken coating.

Karahi gosht (lamb curry) - using less oil

So I have made lamb curry Bengali style before:

but this curry is more of the Pakistani way of making a lamb curry - and I have to say - both are super delicious either way.

Me and my family do not like really oily food, we find it quite heavy - so I use less oil when making curry. However, I do recommend, if you are going to use less oil, use a non-stick pan to make life easier, and add a little bit of hot water if the mixture gets too thick :)

Ramadan recipe ideas

A late Ramadan Mubarak to all! 

I figured I would make life a little easier for those who are looking to find recipes to make during this holy month, something quite easy (to reserve your energy) and not so time consuming (to utilise your time for other things). 

Also, people usually want something quite filling and nutritious for suhoor, and something not so heavy for iftaar, as breaking the fast happens quite late, and the last thing you want to do is eat something super heavy on your stomach that you feel sick or can't move.

As I am sure you can see - I have changed the layout of the website. I have tried to make certain features more accessible - but I would love to hear your feedback.

Do you like the new layout or do you prefer the old one? What do you like and what do you dislike, and what do you wish there could be on the site.

I am not a computer expert, but I will try my best to improve whatever I can based on your feedback.

Thank you so much :)
