Assalaamu alaikum (Peace be upon you) and welcome to my busy kitchen.
I have a simple philosophy about food… It should be tasty and simple to prepare. I don’t use alcohol in my cooking but I’ll point out where wine could be added for extra subtle flavours. I use halal meats and ingredients wherever possible (and it usually is).
I don’t claim that the recipes here are the “definitive” versions of dishes; they are “typical” versions that I enjoy cooking and work for me. Oh… and cooking should be fun, shouldn’t it?
A word to Vegetarians: The recipes I describe as “vegetarian” are free from meat, meat products and fish and will suit anyone on an ovolacto-vegetarian diet. Some recipes will be suitable for ovo-vegetarians and some for lacto-vegetarians. Some may even be suitable for vegans. Some non-vegetarian recipes can easily be made in vegetarian form and therefore I have included them in the vegetarian section.
Bon appetit, and Khuda hafiz (God protect you)
