Aloo ki Bhujia (Potato Curry)

Aloo ki Bhujia (Potato Curry)

I just came back from a glorious (but short) trip to Lahore, where I didn't move a muscle unless it was to eat. I visited close family and got all my favorite foods made at home, and one of those said favorite foods is this Aloo ki Bhujia. It is such a simple dish, but if made right it can hold so much flavor. In fact, this potato curry is so delicious and flavorful that it can be served alongside Halwa Puri. All in all, it's a great vegan and gluten free meal that the whole family will enjoy, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes!

Afghani roht(sweet bread)

This recipe is so special! It's a friend's family recipes, and you all know how much I cherish family recipes. I love exploring cuisines, and recently realized I don't know much about Afghani food. I mean, we're in the same region so our food draws lots of similarities, but I wanted to get to the bottom of it, Evolving Traditions style, and get some authentic, true Afghani recipes...

Chicken Chili Dry

Chicken Chili Dry

Chicken Chili Dry is one of the most popular Chinese dishes for a reason. It's dry, as the name suggests, but packs so much flavor. Each piece of chicken is coated in a thin crispy layer that absorbs all the flavored oil its pan fried in. I'm a garlic lover though and through, but the ginger in this Chicken Chili Dry is phenomenal. As always, this recipe is easy, quick and full of flavor. I always make double batch of this because I eat half of it while I'm getting ready to serve it.

Fruit Chaat

Fruit Chaat

I sometimes find it sad that things that are a part of your daily life become seasonal when you move away. The samosa's, jalebi's and fruit chaat you eat so often become traditions you pull out during Ramadan. As much as I would like to make fruit chaat all year round, I make it everyday in Ramadan, maybe because that's when I miss home the most. And if there ever was a fruit chaat recipe that you could make you feel at home, it's this one, with the sweet guava juice and earthy cumin balancing the sweet and sour fruits so well, I'm transported to Lahore with every bite...
