Chicken Shawarma

  At times, my mind gets stuck in the past, even though I don’t like it. However good our present may be, sometimes we allow our mind to loiter in those forgotten lanes of memory. The memories may be good and cherished, but those that you wish to keep aside so that your peace of mind is not disturbed is usually the ones that always end up coming to the forefront. Such times, it becomes imperative to remind ourselves that the best weapon during those moments in the remembrance of Allah. Life is definitely not intended to be a catwalk and we have to equip ourselves continuously with what is required to keep ourselves protected from the whispers of the cursed and to keep our faith. Here is an article I found during my casual browsing that will ease up a lot of matters at heart, InShaAllah…   I have been…

Be My Guest – Cheese Chilli Carrot Sandwich

As I enjoy my vacation back home, I am so glad that a few bloggers obliged to chip in and keep my blog active during my presence. One of them was Shweta, who blogs at Merry Tummy. I don’t think she needs any introduction. The straightforward person that she is, both of us don’t believe in buttering each other so  I will leave my introduction, nice, short and sweet, just like she did in her post! Hehe… I was already a guest at her place a couple of months ago and I am so glad to host her this month as my first guest for the month. Do stay tuned over the month for a couple more guest posts InShaAllah, tweaked in between with a few of my posts as well. Yes, I understand, why this compulsion? I don’t know but I really don’t feel like leaving my blog hungry…

Chicken Paratha Sandwich

Just sharing this beautiful slide for today… only demonstrates how loyal Allah is to us… such a mind-pleaser, such an assuring thought… Sometimes, a weekend calls for a lazy dinner. When umma is not around, I hesitate to go out with the kids, especially on Thursdays as coming back from work makes me feel really tired and yes, Rasha hates that excuse!!! One Thursday, when I had a balloon-faced Rasha sitting in the hall, upset with me for not taking them out, I whipped up this easy, ready within 30 minutes dinner and you wouldn’t believe how fast that “balloon” deflated! She and Azza absolutely loved their sandwiches to the core. Nothing much fancy, but really filling… Chicken Paratha Sandwich Serves 3 Ingredients: 250 gm boneless chicken, chopped into tiny bite pieces 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 1/2 tsp red chilli powder 1/4 tsp garam masala powder A generous pinch of…
