Papri Chaat

Papri Chaat

Papri Chaat is, in my opinion, the king of chaats. Just the sight of it makes me happy. And honestly, what's not to love? Chickpeas and potatoes drenched in spicy chutneys and a cooling yogurt sauce, topped with freshly ground cumin and crunchy papad. Sigh... (This can easily be made vegan by subbing the yogurt for a vegan option!)

Chicken burgers (Salt n Pepper copycat recipe)

Chicken burgers (Salt n Pepper copycat recipe)

I grew up eating chicken burgers from Salt n Pepper in Lahore. As I grew older I skillfully upped my game to their stuffed chicken with pineapple sauce, but every time I go back, I still have a burger for old times sake...

Paratha Rolls with the best Pickled Onions

Paratha Rolls with the best Pickled Onions

It's essentially your classic roti/paratha with meat, salad and chutneys all rolled in one, but the act of rolling everything together just elevates the flavors and allows them to truly combine, creating a memorable experience, which is why I make paratha rolls so often...

Chapli Kabab Sliders

Chapli Kabab Sliders

This recipe is very close to classic chapli kababs, which are kababs native to the northern parts of Pakistan. Every region has their version, but it's differentiating feature is a slice of tomato pressed into one side. It's then pan fried until it has a nice, crispy crust. This is no way an authentic recipe, but it gives you the best of both worlds, a chapli kabab and a burger...You can skip the burger buns and make these a great gluten free meal.

Moroccan Chicken

Moroccan Chicken

Moroccan chicken is a personal favorite, and it seems to be everyones favorite once they've tried it. The tangy cream based sauce is bursting with layers of flavor. The charred chicken fillets add their own element and the herbs add a flavor so subtle that you can't put your finger on it, but when you forget to add them, you miss them dearly. This is such a nostalgic recipe for me, because it's something I always ate at one of my favorite Lahore restaurants, Cafe Aylanto. Whenever I make this I feel a little closer to home....
