Guest post From Halal Home Cooking ....Pancakes with a twist




As-Salaamu Alaykum

I'm Umm Hamza from Halal Home Cooking today I'm sharing a recipe for a breakfast staple with a twist.

Pancakes are my children's favourite breakfast food. They will gladly eat cereal with milk, creamy porridge and jam/jelly doughnuts but unlike those aforementioned staples that only get half to three quarters eaten because A. they turn soggy B. get's cold and sticky or c. no jam left, pancakes will always be eaten, no excuses.
Once you've honed your basic pancake recipe you are free to experiment with flavour combinations and that's exactly how these chai spiced chocolate and tahini pancakes came about ma sha Allah


I found this chai spiced latte powder whilst searching 'halal' during my on-line grocery shopping. I'm always hoping when hitting that search button new products will pop up and this time it did al hamdu lillah

Please note only Spiced Chai Latte (99% caffeine free) from the drink me chai range has been halal certified.

Not really being familiar with Indian chai but a lover of black tea with milk, this chai latte tastes of earthy cinnamon and creamy coconut. Combine those two flavours that are already known to work so well with chocolate, throw in some tahini you get a taste sensation, all be it a bit different.
My kids enjoyed their pancakes drizzled with butter and a dusting of sugar, whilst I was happy with yet more tahini.

In sha Allah you give these pancakes a go and even if you don't I hope I've inspired you, even just a little to get creative in your Kitchen.

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

my first post

So after reading so many different blogs and having friends with their blogs I thought I would give this a try , I will just write about my life in general what I do with my kids  , i`m not sure if it will be any  interesting , but hopefully you will enjoy it
