Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

Whilst we’re in a complicated relationship with the weather this week – raining for 2 hours, sunny for 5 minutes – why not make a good ol’ noodle soup. Not just any ordinary chicken noodle soup but a Thai red curry noodle soup. 

Orange Chicken

Orange Chicken is an American-Chinese recipe that you can find at halal Panda Express and PF Changs around the world. It’s akin to a sweet and sour chicken but this version is much better, especially that little after zing from the orange flavour. 

Malai Chicken Tikka

Saffron Milk Cake

Who’s up for another indulgent Eid dessert? Meeeee. Today, it is a saffron milk cake.  A light and airy, saffron-infused sponge cake, topped with vanilla cream, crushed nuts, and rose petals, and sitting in a small pool of saffron milk. This dessert just spells out EID if you ask me. 

Chicken Kiev

You may have biryani planned for Eid lunch but in my house, we have chicken kiev. And that’s because everything about it is Eid-worthy.
