  1. I hope you are all doing well! ^_^ I made this a few days ago and I loved it so much I ate it for both breakfast and dinner! I personally don't like cheese very much and when I thought of making grilled cheese, it sounded quite gross to me, but I added a few extras in it and it turned out amazing! It only takes 6 minutes to cook and I'm a huge fan of meals that cook quickly! :wub: If any of you try making it, let me know what you think or how you tweaked it! :) Ingredients: -Mayonnaise -Pepper Jack cheese -Green onions -Spicy turkey sausage -Cabbage -Mozzarella cheese -2 slices of white bread Procedure: -Lay out slices of bread and add ingredients onto it! I used the order above. -In a flat pan, add a drop of oil and move around pan for it to spread. -Press sandwich onto pan and cover on Medium to High heat for 2-3 minutes. -Flip over sandwich, press down with flat spatula and cover for another 2-3 minutes. -Enjoy! :)
  2. (bismillah) Salam. Hi, everyone. I'm learning how to cook and I thought I'd start with the basics. I already know how to other stuff like paratha, eggs, chicken and even biryani all on my own. But what I don't know is how to make bread the way we make it in the subcontinent. The first thing's first. What's the difference between Roti and Chapati? Are they simply different names for the same thing? Are they prepared any differently from each other? And if any of you could be kind enough to post a recipe for each of them, I'd be really grateful. Thanks! Take care. Mithrandir.
  3. My mom always refers me as her bad son, because I like restaurant food more than home cooked meals.. Every night she calls me and ask me about my plans that where am I going to have lunch; home or restaurant... Is that an inappropriate thing to get your meal from restaurant/hotel?
  4. (bismillah) Salam, everybody. This is an absolutely fantastic speech by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf on food and our attitudes towards it. I sincerely recommend all of you to watch it and implement some of what he says in your own lives and witness the change! I speak to myself first. Enjoy! Take care. Mithrandir. ws.
  5. http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=32 Harvard School of Public Health states that consuming fast food increases your risk of obesity-related conditions. Giving up fast food seems intimidating, as you can sacrifice both convenience and indulgence; however, eating healthful alternatives will improve your health, and eventually, your cravings for fast food will diminish. Breakfast fast-food breakfasts such as breakfast burritos, sausage and cheese sandwiches, syrup-soaked pancakes and oily waffles aren-t the way to start your day. Alternatives such as lettuce wraps, tofu scrambles, egg and toast and oatmeal pancakes are healthier choices to give your body energy and nutrition. Compare the 450 calories and 31 grams of fat in a fast-food biscuit with egg and bacon to the 130 calories and 5 grams of fat in a scramble with four egg whites and 1 ounce of cooked turkey bacon. Time’s often an issue for breakfast, but you can prepare many alternative breakfasts in advance and heat them during a busy morning. For example, make a batch of breakfast burritos from black beans, egg whites, chopped bell peppers and corn tortillas and freeze them individually wrapped. Alternately, have a smoothie made from fresh fruit, a sliced apple with peanut butter or strawberries with almond butter for an energy boost. Lunch fast-food lunches like cheeseburgers, french fries or fish and chips can cause fatigue rather than giving you energy. Alternatives such as baked sweet potato fries, tuna salad or a stuffed pita are much healthier. A fast-food double burger has more than 942 calories and 58 grams of fat; to compare, a 3-ounce turkey burger on a whole-wheat pita has 169 calories and 2 grams of fat. While it’s undeniably less indulgent, it’s far better for your health. Other lunch options include a butterhead lettuce and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar, tomato soup, steamed fish with spinach or a chicken breast lettuce wrap with avocado. If you need lunch to-go, bring it in an insulated lunch box with ice packs to keep your food cold or a thermos to keep soup warm. Dinner Fast-food dinners are not an ideal way to end your day. Instead of greasy pizza, create a homemade Margherita pizza, swap fried chicken for oven-baked chicken and have a salad with whole-grain bread instead of a deli sandwich. Other choices for dinner include homemade soup, vegetable stir-fry, steamed lean meat or whole-wheat pasta. Replacing two pieces of fast-food fried chicken, which has more than 431 calories and 26 grams of fat, with 3 ounces of chicken breast for less than 100 calories and around 2 grams of fat instantly makes dinner healthier. If you need dinner quickly, prepare a large batch of soup, salad or sandwich filling at the beginning of the week or use a slow cooker to prepare lean meats and stews while you’re away for the day. Snacks and Desserts Chips, french fries, popcorn chicken, pie, ice cream shakes and other unhealthy snacks and desserts do not nourish your body. Fresh fruit is an ideal replacement; it doubles as both a delicious snack and healthful dessert, and there’s multiple types from which to choose. Smoothies are excellent replacements for fast-food shakes. To compare, a large strawberry shake has more than 550 calories and 13 grams of fat; replace it with a smoothie made from 1 cup of plain, fat-free yogurt and 1 cup of fresh strawberries for 186 calories and 1 gram of fat. Fruit salads, fruit pudding made with silken tofu and fruit dipped in chocolate are other tasty dessert choices. For savory snacks, vegetables sticks, whole-grain crackers or roasted chickpeas are tasty choices.

  6. (salam) I am new to cooking and all I really want cook is chicken. When it comes to food, all I can do are oats, eggs, cereal and chicken roasted in oven. I really need to start cooking my chicken in the microwave in order to save time and work. I found many links on how to cook chicken in the microwave but each is different; some say you need to fill the pyrex half way up with water, some say you have to close with a lid, others don't. Have any of you cooked chicken in the microwave before? If so, please help me out on this. The chicken I want to cook is still with it's bones and I will probably cook a thigh, breast and wing each time (basically half a chicken). (salam)
  7. (salam) I think I am spending a lot of money on organic produce. Is there any real/visible benefit to eating organic? Is eating organic a scam...What do you guys think? Are Organic and Green Products a Scam? Eating Organic - Good For You Or Just A Scam? Organic food is a SCAM!!!
  8. I have heard that "chicken marsala" (popular italian dish in America) and "tiramisu" (popular dessert in America) have a tiny bit of alcohol--is this OK? Here is more info. on the 2 examples: 1) Chicken marsala is often cooked in a tiny bit of wine, which I have heard is burned off while cooking. The purpose of the wine is solely for cooking purposes--is this permissible or haram? 2) Tiramisu is a dessert prepared with a bit of brandy, which I have heard is only in traditional tiramisu recipes. I have heard that the tiny bit of brandy is so insignificant compared to the other ingredients--is this permissible or haram? I mention these 2 particular dishes, because they are popular in American. Many Muslims eat them at restaurants. So, is 1) burning off of a tiny bit of alcohol while a dish is being prepared permissible? And is, 2) a tiny bit of alcohol as an insignificant ingredient permissible? Thanks, TYE
  9. Soo if you could eat any food AT ALL right now, what would you eat? I understand this thread will die because shahr e Ramadhan is coming up. None the less, I feel like eating... WATERMELON :D :D
  10. (salam) Dear Brother's and Sister's, I decided to make this thread, because I seen and heard some thing's that were a little disturbing today. I left the television on, and I was in another room, and I heard gunshots and screaming, and I was wondering if there was some sort of action movie going on in the background. Shortly after hearing the screaming, I came to the room after hearing: "Allahu Akbar!" Out of pure curiosity, I sat and decided to watch the infomercial. The advertisement was for supporting elderly Jew's, who are needy and in Russia. They were Holocaust survivor's, who fled to Russia to get away from Germany during World War II. Again, out of curiosity, I was wondering what Germany and Islam had to do with their suffering, May Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala help them, Insha'Allah. The infomercial was explaining that many of these elderly Jew's were outcastes in the Russian area they dwell therein, and how 'we' people can help them by sending 50.00 dollars to their organization to give a 3 meal's, each week, for one month. I sat and watched, of course I felt bad; naturally, because I don't like to see anyone suffer from malnourishment. What bothered me was the extent that the organization was going to, in order to get people to call-in and donate their money to support the cause. Now, growing up; World History, was probably one of my best subject's, and I never heard anything relating to Islam in relation to World War II. Nevertheless, I continued to watch; and they basically, said: "We are worried about radical Islam, and soon the elderly Jew's wont be able to reside in Muslim countries, etc..." "Please donate to save the Jew's." What was interesting to me; the radical Islamist's today (in the media) are directed to the Shi'ites. The infomercial was playing latom video's and showing pictures of black hijab wearing women (supposedly, these were the radical Islamist's they were referring to). One thing that really bothered me after watching the said video, they made a notion about Allah. A Jewish or Christian (I'm not really sure) said: "They say 'Allahu Akbar' which means God is great, but this is not the meaning. Allahu Akbar means 'Allah the God' is great." "Please donate now before it's too late for the elderly Jew's." Now, I'm not trying to make a mockery of the advertisement, but I still don't see the relevance of adding this information to get people to donate money to feed elderly Jew's. I even got more curious, I was wondering...do they have website? Sure enough; they did, and it's as follows: http://www.ifcj.org/site/PageNavigator/eng/programs/isaiah_58/elderly/elderly_3_i58 I also found another video on the website (if you click video at the top), that also explained that Jews are getting bombed daily by Lebanon extremist's (as mentioned in the video) called "Israel 911" Now, I rarely pay attention to the media; as you can see from this thread, our media is brainwashing people and making false accusation's. It was interesting to me, that you have a window of 30-45 minutes to make an advertisement, and out of that timeframe, you choose to throw Islam into it for good measure. I mean; literally, they mentioned Islam for one minute, and then it was back to the 'story' of feeding the needy. I actually felt really bad for the elderly Jew's; and I still do, because it's unfortunate that people don't have food and medicine (like many other's in the world). I wonder if I called them and said I was Muslim, and I'd like to make a donation, would they accept it? Well, being the person that I am; I did call, and they had no issue taking my money. I asked: "How can you take my money when you told million's of people to beware of Muslim's taking over?" Their response: "Oh, we were just targeting (interesting word he used) extremist's around the world, and those who are threatening Israel today." Well, I pondered, and said: "This isn't the case, because of the video footage you were displaying on TV was directed towards Shi'ite Muslim's." I explained to the man, I felt really bad about the situation in relation to the elderly Jew's in Russia; but I was taken back, because they threw all of Islam "under-the-bus." He said: "We know not all Muslim's are criminal (again, interesting word he used), but we only want justice for the poor." I replied: "I am sure there are bad people in every religion; I don't think it's limited to one. So, if I donate 50.00 dollar's to support your mission, will you let the public know that a Shi'ite Muslim contributed to your organization?" He replied: "No, this isn't about religion, this is about the poor." I replied: "The video footage and the comment's therein would suggest otherwise." I am going to write a letter to the corporation about this interaction. Even if I get no feedback from them, I will do my part to let the public know; I did care, and tried to send fund's. Your Shi'ite advocate and Sister in Faith, (wasalam) AB313

  15. Al salamo alaykom Addham Allah Ajrakum Wa Ahsan Aza'akum bi muzab Imam Al Hussein (as) I woke up this morning to the smell of fried onions all over the house. I hurried to the kitchen and saw mom cooking a soup-like food (Qima), donating it to the Husseiniya. She said during Muharram all the Shia Muslims around the world do the same. It's called making Nazri/äÐÑ, and while mixing the food we can make wishes in the name of Imam Hussain (as) , hopefully in future God will fulfill them. Unfortunately, I'm really bad at cooking and couldn't help much expect of stirring the pot with a long wooden spoon and making hundreds of wishes. :angel: Do Shia Muslims in other countries really believe in this thing? - Large Qima pot - Fried Onion - Mom run out of onions, I went out to buy her more. - It's still a mystery to me, how to know if an onion is BAD? Mmm they never taught us that in school... - This is how a mashed (Qima) looks like... Brother helping too! <3 Making dua mashallah... Tralalalal almost finished Qima! just don't ask me for the recipe. Mom tried to explain, but it's all too complicated.. :huh: If you know other types of Nazri, please post it here!
  16. Salam aleikum, I have heard, that hindus and buddhists are najis (impure) and if they touch any food it becomes also najis (impure) and muslims are not allowed to eat it? Is this true or not? Can you please provide any verses or hadiths?

    "Any child who dies of starvation today, is in fact murdered."
  18. Salam 'Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh I thought it would be a nice idea to have a thread where we share recipes of stuff we have mixed to make nicer foods/drinks. Today I got digestive biscuits and crunched them up in a cup and then poured some coffee and a bit of milk onto them and then poured boiled water and mixed and it was delicious I also made a nice sauce, it was Mayonnaise mixed with Ketchup till the colour goes Pink (darkish) and I added chilli powder to it and it was very nice. Please share your "mixture recipes" too :) p.s the more unusual the better ;)
