Tajin with meat

So sometimes when watching t.v. you can come across many cooking programs and sometime i wonder do ppl really cook that and eat it ...... well the other day i was watch algerian t.v. with dh  and everyday their is a cooking program as i watched the woman i thought oh that looks good ... now i have to say that i have watched this program last year too and did make one of her dishes and masha`allah it was good and we all loved it

so as i sat their dh also said thats look nice give it a try i wrote down what she did and yesterday i tried it .... now what i will say is that it needed something else but it was nice so next time i will change it a little to suit ourselves

anyway this is what we used

mince meat (i used minced chicken)
tomatoes (2)
tomato puree
courgettes (2)
potatoes (2)
peppers (4)
black pepper
5 eggs

take your mince and mix all spices into it as well as a little garlic and 1 egg
then  roll into balls or like the first pic and set aside ...... then place a little oil in a pan and place your chicken balls into and aloow to brown on all sides then take out

the place diced onion and garlic and fry for a little while ... then add chopped tomatoes and spices ....and allow to cook .... then you add a little tomato puree.....allow to cook some more ...then add water ... then place your chicken balls into the suace cover and cook on medium heat for about 20 mins

in the mean time cut up your courgettes into discs and also your potatoes into cubes and fry both separately...when finished place on a paper towel to allow the excess fat to come off ...after tthe 20 mins are up add your courgettes  and potatoes

then blacken some peppers ...actually this can be done while your frying the potatoes .... then once blacken place in a bag and allow to cool then take all the black off and cut into pieces and add to sauce

now all of this cooking can be done in thise pot that can be used both on top of cooker and inside ....

once you`ve add everything in each corner of your dish crack an egg  without stirring and place in oven ...leave their untill cooked and take out

eat with some warm bread ...

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 Source : 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 d

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
