Relax and bake

Masha`allah .... allah has blessed me with the husband i have and the family i have

so i bet your wondering why i`m saying this a.... well let me tell you .... at the beginning or ramadan i tolad my dh i wasnt going down the same ramadan road of cooking cooking that ramadan iant about that and masha`allah he agreed.... so i tld him that things will be simple and not too much

well masha`allah thats how it has happened .... usually on my table we would have borak  and pizza as well as other things like the chourba ... and if it wasnt borak then some sort of pies .... well this year i have done one item every day so one day borak day pizza.... one day pies ... you see how it goes

so a few days ago i had no cooking and decided that i would treat everybody and thats what i did ... i made apple tart some biscuits and these wonderful stuffed bread rolls

 I started by making the apple tart and found that i had messed up the ingredients by adding sugar to the recipe so i thought theirs no way i`m wasting that so i thought that i would just bake them and see if anyone will eat them ... well i have to say they went down a treat

Recipe For Biscuits

8oz flour
4oz marg
4oz sugar
cold water to bring it to a dough

now my kids tell me that i should reduce the amount of sugar for the next time so insha`allah maybe you should do the same

Recipe For Apple Tart 

8oz flour
4oz marg

cold water to bring it to a dough

some sugar and apples to fill the base .

These are the stuffed bread rolls i mentioned ... and these were a real surprise masha`allah .... i was told about them by my friend as she was/is making them .... the recipe comes form here

I know they dont look the same as the pic of the original recipe ...  but not far off .... these we will be making again

so enjoy your time in the kitchen and do share what you have made

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
