Instant Pot Dal

Instant Pot Dal

Dal is such an important part of my Dad's side of the family. Everyone knows how to make it, and they make it fast. So naturally, I had to come up with my own quick version of instant pot dal. When I think of Dal, I think of my paternal grandmother, who we all called Bibi Ji. Bibi Ji was the queen of the family, and she always got what she wanted. Besides her affinity for McDonald's fish fillets, she loved dal. We had it almost daily.

Pakistani Chicken Patties

Pakistani Chicken Patties

Puff pastry and chicken tikka happen to be a couple of my favorite things, so of course I mashed them into one ultimate snack. Chicken patties are well loved and widely available across Pakistan and in the homes of the people you visit for chai, but they're also readily available in my home, because I ALWAYS have a batch of these in my freezer, no exaggeration intended. I not only make these in bulk for ramadan, but all year round, because they bring me a little closer to my home town, Lahore...Just make them and see...
