dinner today

naughty me hasn`t really being posting .... sorry for that ... but as you know life gets busy from time to time espically when my dh is here

so today as usual i`m always think what to cook and i get fed up by it .... but my kids decided for me they all wanted matoum which is an algerian dish so as always too i have to make something along side with this as my dh like choice so i also made chlitha

matoum is made with chick peas garlic lot of garlic black pepper, salt, cumin, and carwia ,this is for the sauce
the mince is mixed with the same spices and an egg and made into ball and added and when everything is nearly cook you add some tomato puree

the chlitha is made from blacken peppers and placing in a bag to sweat it out then you chop up tomatoes and garlic and black pepper and salt and plack into a frying pan ... then cook til tomato is soft .... while this is cooking remove the skin from the peppers and slice in long strips and then add to the tomatoes ... now some ppl like it hot so i add a little harissa (chilli paste) to it and let it cook a further 2 mins and take of heat

and that`s it .... enjoy

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.

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

Pizza Roll

Asalamu Alikum For months my oven hasn't worked and all of a sudden it was working again so the first thing i made was pizza roll ... while doing this i was teaching my daughter my 13 year old how to do this as my 15 year old already knows how to this is basically the samr as the homemade pizza i make only the sauce is a little different ... all i do is use tomato puree and add spices of my choice and then i thin it out to make it easier to spread it is roll out like normal pizza here is my recipe for that you can add any topping and then just take the side and roll the dough till it's like a log ... then cut into rounds and place on tray ... i will add cheese on top as well as the cheese that is inside and then bake for about 15 to 20 mins
