Does anybody have the recipe for aloo and spinach? I think it has garlic paste some red pepper flakes etc. And I personally don't like fresh cilantro/ corriander so feel free to omit from recipe :P

Lady Fingers

Ingredients

3 eggs separated

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup sifted all purpose flour

Method

Beat egg whites until fluffy. Add 1/3 cup sugar gradually, and continue beating until stiff.

Beat egg yolks until thick, and beat in 1/3 cup sugar, vanilla and salt. Fold egg yolk mixture and flour into egg whites. Spoon mixture into pastry tube or bag, with a plain 1/2 inch opening. Press tube to form fingers 3 inches long on ungreased heavy brown paper placed on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and bake at 360° F 10 to 15 minutes. Cool and lift from paper with metal spatula. Put fingers together with lemon filling or jam, or serve singly.

Here's one:

Dumpling "Eggdrop" Dal Chaat

That's Chaat not chat. Chaat is like a tangy, spicy saucy dipping, dunking stuff. It's real good and taste yummy. It's a mixture of a Muslim Chinese recipe with a touch of basel and black beans. And what makes it desi is the tangy and spicy masala.

Wa Salaam,

Dhulfiqar

wat the hell? muslim chinese food??

wats muslim food? there is halal...or there is food that originates from different regions/cultures ie paki food

basel? blak beans? do u mean channey and daniya?

Methi is fenugreek leaves...if u have any desi grocery store near your place, you can easily get those..methi is like a bundle of stem with small green leaves and tehy are too muddy :donno: you gotta wash them really thoroughly..

Desi etc. Recipes, call for recipes from Indo-Pak, Afgh...

Sis Abaleada your title is wrong, Afghan's aren't desis. lol

Sis Abaleada your title is wrong, Afghan's aren't desis. lol

:o Ah, just noticed that. Ah, ya3ni I can post Afghan recipesl!!

And yeah, Us Afghans are not desis!

I know. I do, however, think of the greater region extending from Iran to Turkey to Agfhanistan to the Subcontinent as tied together by certain similarities. Delicious food tops the list. And with Pashtuns being in Afghanistan, it is so difficult to forget that it is not Desi.

This thread is growing faster than I can read, mashallah.

If there are aloo recipes up, I hope to grab some.

If banjan is eggplant, then what is burani?

There is an eggplant that one can pick up in tin cans whose tops you can peel back with a tab instead with a can opener. It tastes a bit roasted, and it seems to be in a tomato sauce. So how do I get a raw eggplant with two of those tough spikey leaves leaves on top to turn into that breakfast delicacy in the tin without dashing off to the overpriced halal market?

As salamu alaikum,

A pototo special:

Ingredients:

Potatoes, Garlic paste, Red chilly powder, Salt to taste, Corriander cumin powder, Rai( donno the english for it.:P), oil for frying, Curry leaves..

Method:

Put oil in pan..heat it..add curry leaves and fry, add garlic paste fry till smell of garlic vanishes..(this is a must..) now add in potatoes(already  boiled and then diced), fry more, add the spices..fry and fry..and done..

Put in lemon juice..you can remove curry leaves after you're done..)

Enjoy..

WaSalam..

If you find a picture or description of rai, can you post it up? How long does it usually take for the smell of garlic to disappear?

If the end, is there only potatoes in the bowl swimming in sauce? Or might it be possible to add other vegis?

WOrst vegetables:

1) Okra

2) Pumpkin

3) Eggplant

4) Turnips

:sick:

and whats so good about Okra? it's so sticky.. eww.. as sticky as Payee :sick:

I do enjoy a slimy okra. However, I have not learned how to make a proper bhindi. Help?

As we age, our taste buds mellow. I hated broccoli as a child, but by my teens, I was waffling them up like no tomorrow. I've been eating asparagus from Gramma's garden since I was kid, so it might also be that we all prefer fresh vegis and not already overcooked stuff from that salty water tin can mix. I always hated carrots until the time that I ate one fresh from the store instead of after being boiled to death and soaked up in butter. I loved it raw. Keep a list of foods that you abhor today and check it again when you are 30. The differences might surprise you.

Could someone post the spelling of "tea" and "six" in Urdu script? I need to see if they are different and how. Another interesting thing: Biscuits are British for (American) cookies; galletas is the Spanish word for cookies.

ﻫﭼ = six

چائے = Tea

(salam)

If banjan is eggplant, then what is burani?

These are Farsi words:

Badenjan = eggplant, the word actually just describes the colour of eggplant.

Burani = a dish of spinach, or cut up spinach, or something cut up.

In Iran Burani or Borani is usually a spinach and yogurt type dish.

and "Cha'ee" is actually originally Chinese for tea.

Even in Farsi and Afghani Farsi/dari it's noted as originally Chinese, that's why in Arabic they say Sha'ee they don't have the "ch" but in farsi they say Cha'ee.

wa salam :)
