  1. Yes! New addition to menu - salmon and spinach lasagne at Ikea. Yum! And I ruined it all with a snicker's smoothie (so much for healthy eating...but it was my cheat day :P)
  2. They're called 'ma'mul' and they come in date and walnut fillings. Check out the recipe and video on this site: http://www.dedemed.com/mediterranean/maamoul-recipe-maamoul Tip number one: You have to have a non stick pan in order for your tahdig not to burn. Number two: Practice makes perfect! Check out this site for more tips: http://turmericsaffron.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/art-of-making-persian-tah-dig.html And this one for more tahdig varieties (bread, lettuce etc): http://mypersiankitchen.com/?s=tahdig
  3. Hey guys, it's been quite some time since I've logged on to shiachat. But as always I come back once in a while to check up on everyone :P So in my absence I've taken plenty of food pics (being an instagram addict and all!) Without further adieu *drumroll* Yesterday's gathering: (the pic on the right is called tahdig - it's basically crispy rice at the end of the pan). This one is potato tahdig and tahdig is the pride of all Iranians :P Recently I've started to have a change of lifestyle - healthy eating. It's not a diet it's just a healthy way of living. Here's some pics of the meals I made: I absolutely love seafood Porridge! I have no idea why I didn't discover it before :o Cous cous - healthy alternative to rice End of term 'party': The one on the left is falafels which I woke up at 6:00am to make. Dedication or what? :P The first time I made them it didn't come out right. I didn't add flour because the recipe didn't mention I had too! Next time I should put them in the oven (being healthy and all). My talented friend made her own birthday cake! Random pics: Goje sabz season! The literal translation is 'green tomatoes' but I don't know what it's called in English. Banoffee pie made by me for my lovely friends Batata harra (spicy potatoes). A Lebanese dish.
  4. I read somewhere that the black man was a Zoroastrian fire keeper so his face would get black from the coal lol Check out post #4 http://www.shiachat....4974987-nowruz/
  5. Yeah kinda knew someone who comment on it. Nowrooz is a non Islamic tradition and the flag is an old Persian symbol, that's it. Don't need people reading too much into it. I put the current Iranian flag on my table last year...not that it matters.
  6. Happy New year my fellow Persians and all those celebrating it! For more info on Nowrooz, check out the Nowrooz thread I made a few years ago: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?/topic/234974987-nowruz/ My Haftseen table....
  7. The earth provides enough to satisfy every mans need, but not every mans greed.
  8. Na baba it's ok lool Another quote: A lion doesn't lose sleep over the opinion of sheep!
  9. I know where you found that quote from! :P More quotes: The more you know, the more you realise you don't know - the less you know, the more you think you know - David T. Freeman ما تتعلم في االصغر ينفعك في الكبر Whatever you study in your young age, will benefit you in your old age. Nature does nothing in vain - Aristotle Good habits formed at youth make all the difference - Aristotle
  10. Oh yes my bad! Now that I think of it she had the flu so this explains why she had the packet with her lol. My other Paki friend said the Iranian equivalent of that would be 'gol gav zaboon' http://turmericsaffron.blogspot.co.uk/2010/03/gol-gav-zaban-persian-herbal-flower-tea.html Apparently it doesn't taste too good...
  11. My Pakistani friend brought this in the other day lool...apparently it's good for stomach aches. Inaya don't do this to me...baqlawa is my love <3 I think Turkish people make the best ones...
  12. Haven't really been in the shiachat mood, but I just watched a film that I have to share lol It's called 'Arranged', came out in 2008. Here's a summary I found: I give it a 9/10, overall a good film. Acting was great, there was a bit of humour, the reality of certain aspects of life were shown (such as family reputation etc). The culture clash between our traditions with the West was portrayed and I really love how at the end there seems to be some progress/adaptation in the way marriage is viewed, as well as holding on to our traditions and beliefs. I'm not sure if there was a correct portrayal of the Jewish family. Maybe there was a slight exaggeration in regards to their hostility towards Muslims...
  13. Love your signature, one of the best I've seen here. Aash is simply heavenly, no doubt about that.
  14. Eh I see you guys already went through with the change, without my approval :o Haha I'm just kidding, when I got a notification for this thread I thought I didn't follow this but I read it again and was like ah they must have changed the name :P
