Urdu Food Word List (contributions, anyone?)

bhindi: okra (several thread contributors)

chili: mirch

goat: bakri

garlic: lehsan

coriander: dhania

eggs: andey

milk: doodh

rai: mustard seeds (thank you, Peer)

http://www.desicookbook.com/translations.asp

Farsi (from Mujahid so far)

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.

Chinese

cha'ee: tea; even in Farsi and Afghani Farsi/Dari it is noted as originally a Chinese word, which is why in Arabic they say sha'ee - they do not have the "ch". (from Mujahid)

An interesting thing: Biscuits are British for (American) cookies; galletas is the Spanish word for cookies.

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?

As Salamu Alaikum..

Hm..You got to fry till 8 minutes atleast..b/c overall it doesn't take much time to cook unlike other curries..Or else, if the garlic smwell stays there goes our dish..:P

As for other veggies, no, I dont think so, its purely a pootato dish..n yeah, Rai is mustard seeds..

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

Yeah, got the best recipe for it and an original too..;)

You need

Lady fingers

Oil

Potatoes

Ginger garlic paste

Corriander and cumins seeds powder..

salt to taste

Turmeric powder..(thats haldii)

Red chilly powder

Tomato paste

Curd

Fried onions-crushed

WAsh and remove the top and bottom of okra then slice it vertically..also cut potatoes very small in size almost diced..

Put oil in a pan and fry potatoes for almost 10 minutes..Since okra doesnt take long to cook you need to get potatoes cooked or else they'll be raw..Add in ginger/garlic paste and fry for another 2-3 minutes..Add in okra and salt and turmeric..Now just let all this fry for atleast 20 mins..(It removes the stickyness..if u fry less, the more sticky it is..)

Afetr all this frying add in corriander and cumin powder, red chilly powder, tbsp of curd and tbsp of tomato paste, and also a tablespoon of crushed fried onions..

Close the lid and let ti simmer..

Enjoy..

Keep a list of foods that you abhor today and check it again when you are 30. The differences might surprise you.

I'll remember to add karela in that list..

:unsure: lol i made a really horrible mistake today...elachi seeds and rai seeds....gulab jamun....now the whole dish is ruined, thank god my mum didnt get mad...she was wondering how the heck im going to get married....any major cooking disaters they want to share?

Too much tumeric in my first attempt at dal. Major flop. Been using the box since then.

There is a small software for this..

Some people do it thru MS Word too..

o i want tht :D

yea last time i was in the kitchen i was trying to make roast chicken and the whole cooker was on fire...and top of that i screamed instead of throwing cloth on it :donno: :Hijabi:

Just copy/pasting a PM I received from Sister Zainabia:

Brother,

Here is the link from where you can download this free editor for writing urdu

http://www.unipad.org/download/

It's almost same like MS word.

In the icon line of copy, paste, open, cut ..... you will find the 3rd last icon of Sytem. When you click there, you will get a list of many languages. Select Urdu.

And the 2nd last icon is Keyboard. Just click on it and you will be able to see the urdu keyboard.

In beginning, it would be little difficult for you to write, but with time, you will wrtie the same way as you type english.

====================

Do you know how to install urdu key board in xp? It remains the best option for windows xp users. After doing it, you can create professional urdu web pages (just like in english) and use all the features of ms word xp.

Keep some baking soda handy for that. It puts out all types of kitchen fires safely: food fires, grease fires, (electric fires? wait for confirmation on that).

(salam)

Cha'ee is spelled in Farsi: چائ or چای ( the hamzeh is supposed to be a little more to the right lol , it wont work for some reason )

in Arabic it's a "sha" instead of the "che" in farsi.

Just a note, it doesn't need to have the hamzeh or hamzah on the yaa'. It works either way.

Urdu has a different spelling, a different looking "yaa" letter, but it's the same word.

چاۓ = Tea

چھ = Six

Better, with the understanding that where it looks like a large ? to me, it's a yay. Maybe I am getting my brain back?

Ok, do this:

1) UrduWord.com (thanks to Agha Mujahid)

2) Type: Tea, and get it translated into Urdu.

Talking about Kitchen disasters are we?

Well.......once I was making cake and I dropped the whole soda packet in water and it got all wet and so I did not know how to measure out the exact proportion and so I dumped in the whole thing in the cake batter.

And dont ask me how the cake turned out. :mad: :(

:cry:

You know when I cook something and it's tasty everyone eats it and when it does not turn out right,no one touches it........(Well!except my dad and mama ofcourse).....how mean can you get!!!!!

They should encourage me na. :angry:

Aslamo Alaikum,

Sis Nida, Allah made the night for sleeping.

I don't sleep in school, because I take it as a bounty of Allah, to have the oppertunity to learn in an environment like here. I still remember the red marks on my body parts from childhood in the school in Pakistan. I don't want to go back there, so I appriciate any thing that I learn here, even if that is French (which I extremely hate btw).

Sorry for changing the topic.

Wassalam

falling asleep in class: by the time today's teenagers get done with the five hours of homework thatthe teachers invariably assign, three hours weekly of community service that is expected of them, studying for college entrance exams, serving tea for family guests, spending required time with family and what's left of friends...

sleep?

Already, studies in Honk Kong prove that Chinese kids miss out on too much sleep because of homework. To be perfectly honest, it's time that teachers and school administrators woke up to the reality that students are just kids, not homework machines.
