So here`s another one for you it`s an algerian dish called k`babh  this dish can be made with either chicken or meat balls so today i went with mince balls .... it is a very simple dish and very tasty ... to tell the truth it had been a while since i made it as alot of time i leave out the parsley and egg  but this time i went to whole way

to getting this dish right  you must be careful that their isnt too much sauce or too little sauce  and as long as you can get that then the dish speaks for it`s self ... believe me it took me a long time to get  it right ... that now my dh nephew  says i cook better than his mum and he love to eat what i make


mince meat (as much or as little as you like)
a handful of rice ( this also depends on the amount of mince )
breadcrumbs (optional )
1 egg
black pepper


1 onion
handful of chick peas
black pepper

chips(fried potatoes)


 Dice up onion small
add some oil and saute on a low heat
the add chickpeas (only if they are form the ones you saok over night) if from a tin then have way through the cooking process
add spices and continue
then add water litle by little

at this stage you can make up you mince meat ball by placing all ingredients into a bowl and mix well then form balls

after about 30 mins of cooking the sauce add the balls and if needed add so more water and continue until chick peas are soft and turn off

 fry your potatoes and when cooked add to sauce this stage turn back on the heat  to a medium flame add chopped parsley and the from a bowl add 3 eggs that have been beaten  ... pour over the top and just place the spoon in different parts  of the pot to allow the eggs to fill up the area and allow to simmer for a few mins then turn off the heat and leave it for a few mins to allow it to rest

so you see simple and tasty ... give it a try i`m sure you will like it and if you dont like eggs just leave it out will still make a tasty dish

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
