Ramadan is coming

Asalamu Alikum

Subhan`allah it has been way too long since i posted anything here ... i kind of lost myself when it has come to cooking and have tended to stick with the same thing over and over again...

but ma'shaa'allah ramadan is coming and even tho i want this year to be about worship and pleasing allah cooking also will come into this ... i will try to stick not not cooking as much as i have done in previous years and try to stick to the way i did it last year ...

I am looking forward to what this ramadan will bring me in the way of deen and my family and the changes that came this year too

So stayed tuned my friends and in'shaa'allah by the mercy of allah i hope to be able to place some new thing on my blog

Jazak`allah khair

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum

Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember

This soup is made from split green peas

first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker)

i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut....

fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup

French Laof

Asalam wa alikum

So as you know i`m not really one for baking ... but when a good recipe comes my way i must tell you about it

I have had this recipe for a while and never got around to trying it so as i was making my muffin bread i thought let me try this one ... Its a french loaf and so simple and easy

2 cups of water (warm)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp of yeast instant
2 tbsp of salt ... i felt it was a bit too much so i reduced it to 1
2 tbsp of oil (veg)

5 cups of flour

mix well and knead dough then allow to rise

punch back the dough then place on a tray

allow to rise again and place in a hot oven

it takes about 20 mins or so and masha`allah what a lovely bread

we toasted it and had butter and jam for breakfeast

enjoy and let me know how it works out

REVIEW: Muffin Bread

Asalam wa alikum

so every so often i will try out a recipe that has been posted so this time  i have tried this one  Being Kate  ( Muffin Bread ) and masha`allah what a hit .... easy to make and easy to bake

the only thing for me was the size of my tin and the bread didnt come up over the top when rising   so i would need to add maybe a little more flour and liquid

but over all masha allah this will become a favorite i think

so go try it and let her know how you got on

So whats for afternoon tea

Asalam wa alikum

So whats for afternoon tea ...well let me tell you .... after 9 years of living here i still dont know the names of a few thing and this is one of them .... what i call it is Algeria`a version of french toast with sugar.... even to say french toast might be wrong but when i was growing up and was doing cooking in school that was one of the things we were taught but not with the sugar

so all you need is some stale bread i try not to buy to much bread these days as it doesnt get eaten to much ... my family seems to prefer when i make pitta bread

anyway what you needis

stale bread (we use french stick)
oil to fry it in

and thats it ...easy huh!!!

just cut the french stick into rounds as big as you like
dip it in the eggs that also has a little milk in it
then fry once finished ... dip straight into sugar

and presto chango!!!!

enjoy with what ever takes your fancy
