Salam as I searched about Biryani, we have still simple form of that we call it 'مرغ لای پلو ' ' morgh lay Polo' that it's translation is chicken inside rice but usually restaurants make chicken & Rice separate from each other but you can also can find  meat balls that cooked with  rice in traditional iranian restaurants that present traditional foods of North of Iran ,but Iranian don't use Masala & other spices 

مرغ لای پلو



 




Morgh Lay polo

The most similar to Biryani is Qaymeh la Polo' that is more popular  قیمه لا پلو & distributes in Ashura day

I hate to eat food I do not understand.

Why can't everything be simple like hamburger and fries, pizza or turkey dinner?

I don't know what l am Iooking at up above.

These are only simple because they are familiar to you. 

 

Ate: I cooked a disaster for last night's supper. We ate it anyway. It was meant to be ground turkey gravy served over rice, but there was a series of mishaps and it ended up more like a sticky paste. Maybe we can spread the leftovers on toast. 

Eating: waiting for the coffeepot, then I will have a cup of coffee with milk and a piece of oat muffin, inshallah. 

Will eat: tonight's supper is planned to be chicken and noodles, but if it doesn't rain I may change that to chicken on the grill, maybe with noodles, maybe with bread or potatoes. And I'll figure out the rest later.

It's 2:45am here and I am eating kulfi. It's traditional Pakistani 'ice cream on stick' made by evaporating sweetened cardamom flavoured milk until it's condensed and caramelized. Pistachios and almonds are added for extra flavour.

(Picture off Google, cannot take own because involves grave danger of waking up kids and ruining rare moments of enjoying kulfi and solitude)

Half guessing, My grandmother would have said something like, "Cut it with milk" or "Thin it with milk".

Will that work?

How dare can someone else’s combination of meat and grain be different from my combination of meat and grain?

Humanity!

Yes - until it reached the top of the pot. But I've been adding milk in a glass bowl before reheating the leftover, so I can pour it over toast, not spread it like turkey peanut butter. It does taste good, but I'll probably be the only one eating the leftover because these people I've got are lazy when there's easier food available.

From tomorrow onwards inshallah if I remember, I will start posting pic of what I eat in a day.

 

Today I ate béchamel pasta for dinner and lunch. No breakfast because I woke up late.

Ate: breakfast was leftover grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, and rice. Of course there was coffee with milk. I always have coffee with milk.

Eating: (actually finished) Triscuit crackers and cheese, dates, and an apple. And I'm waiting for some berry-black tea to steep. 

Will eat: ( @hasanhh might like this one.) We've got some beef hot dogs, and I'm going to serve with fries and baked beans. It's not my favorite meal, but the kids love it. Actually, the less effort I make, the more they like it. :confused:

So I heated a handful of potatoes and a couple of chicken nuggets.

Make sure to spread the ketchup thusly and you can imagine that you are eating at a Michelin starred restaurant. This was made with macaroni, but you could easily shape the potatoes in the same way:

^ Just as luck would have it, I experienced something similar myself last night. We're talking thin slices of beetroot and some white vegetable (mouli?) and hurri dhunya. With sauce. I asked for extra bread rolls to mop up the sauce with.

You can tell with the nakshaybazi that this did not come cheap. But someone else was paying.

:woot:

Ha! I said my ex-mother-in-law had success on a diet! I've never dieted a day in my life! (Maybe I should. Hmm.)

Besides, school is out for summer. If I'm having lunch, I'm feeding kids. 

Supper was fairly healthy though: noodles with steamed broccoli, garlic, and parsley.

What was it my Father said. Oh yeah. Measuring the Hour-Glass figure is not head, neck and body. [Hour Glass is like a 'fat' 8 -for you foreigners to know].

Personally, l am eating only one meal each day -usually, and I still gain weight.

Came from outside and was famished. Shopping is hardwork! :p

Made French toast for tea, gave the children their's alongwith a warning about the possible repurcussions of sloppy eating, not using forks etc, in a stern voice.Then brought mine to my room and am now sitting with my feet up, drinking chai and putting pieces of toast in my mouth using my hands.

Shocked at the range in quality of fried fish out there. Some perfection, others an absolute mess. The ratio of fish to breading, the type of oil used, the consistently, all important.

Good fish and chips are hard to make. The bad kind is easy. That’s life for you.

Lolz, my mum is the kind who was always drilling all sorts of etiquettes into me, I did pick up a few things but sometimes it feels good to break rules and yesterday was one of those days. On my way back from shopping I stopped to buy a popular Mum-total-disapproved street food to eat later at home.
