We have simple rules of cooking 🧑‍🍳

It should be simple☺️

It should be flavourful ♥️

In this ever changing world, there is one thing that remains constant…. Our love for chai ❤️

It unites us like no other. And the evening tea in Pakistan is a must in every household. A time when families sit together after a day’s hard work and enjoy this beverage. In my childhood, the tea time at evening was not just chai but always with something extra…. biscuits, nimco, cake rusk… or a simple tea cake that you could dunk in or just enjoy on the side. Everyone who has had our Ideal Tea Cake says it takes them back to freshly baked bakery cakes…

Since we started making these, our evening tea time has become a little tea party.

What is your favourite tea time snack?

PS: Available on order. Full Loaf for $25

30/06/2021

Chow Mein is an important part of Pakistani/Indian-Chinese cooking or what we like to call lovingly, desi Chinese food. I think it is one of the most loved noodle dish. Basically, stir fried noodles with vegetables and meat (optional) and a delicious sauce which makes all the difference. We learned of this difference when Mrs and I used to live in Malaysia and we believed that Chow Mien was a dish we knew well but…….

While some countries enjoy a mild version of it, the variety in Malaysia has dark soy sauce giving it a sweet after taste; a flavour we acquired after a while.

Ours has a bit of tang and tad bit spice in it… giving it the comforting flavour and feel-at-home taste. I enjoy mine with heaps of chilli garlic sauce on the side while Mrs sprinkles some chilli flakes.

I also have very fond memories of eating this at my university's canteen. What about you?

PS: Please don’t miss our tiny, homegrown red chillies posing for the photograph.

Yesterday we posted a small video on our page story and asked you to guess what was cooking. Most of you guessed that it was chai but, some of you correctly guessed that it was not just chai but the gorgeous winter beverage, Kashmiri chai or Noon chai. We captured the beautiful moment when milk is added to the tea and it turns this stunning pink colour!

It is pink, yes! No, it is not artificial colour.

Not only that it has this distinctive colour, the original Kashmiri chai is salty with a hint of cardamom and garnished with almonds and pistachios. Originating from the beautiful valley of Kashmir, pink tea is an integral part of Pakistani winters. While in Kashmir it is made regularly and served with homemade bread and salted cookies, in Pakistan it is reserved for special occasions like family gatherings and weddings. We add sugar to it and lots of nuts.

The pink colour, aroma of cardamom, nutty taste, the blending of salt and sugar - it is no less than a little party in a cup and one that takes you back home to love filled slow and cosy winter nights ❤

How do you like Kashmiri chai? Salty or Sweet?

Pakistani Chinese food is everyone’s favourite. Brought to Pakistan by Chinese migrants, liberal use of chicken stock and seasoning with a variety of tangy, sweet or spicy sauces is the trademark of this cuisine. The food evolved over time to retain the Chinese style of cooking but with a little Pakistani influence. The fusion is a pure delight.

Although popular all year, we love it especially during winters because we can then have it with a serving of warm soup. It makes winters a tad bit happier!

All the rain and cold weather the last whole week was a good reason to make warm soups but today we decided to have a hearty meal of Egg Fried Rice and Hakka style chicken…

A little spicy, a little tangy … leaving the heart and stomach … satisfied ♥️

What is your favourite combination with Egg Fried Rice?

We are a fan of dates. Ever since we started focusing on healthy eating, dates became a permanent feature in our fridge to take care of those odd cravings. In Ramazan, of course dates become a part of menu every single day. To try something different this year, we made these healthy date balls with almonds and coconut that are not only delicious and filling but also look great on our Iftar table.

Also, I feel these will now be a permanent feature in our stock of snacks after Ramazan. Stored in a jar, these will be perfect energy boosters for any day.

Did you try any new recipe this Ramazan?

Tea time is very important in our home. We enjoy our evening tea immensely. In usual days, it is the time we both are relaxed, we unwind with a cup of tea and talk about our day. And it is always good to have 'a little something' with tea. Biscuit, cake or rusk.. a bite to enjoy that tea even more.

Spring roll is also one of our most loved tea time snack. It is from the desi Chinese cuisine (Pakistani variation of Chinese cuisine) that is much loved by everyone. Crunchy patty stuffed with vegetables and chicken, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, warm and delicious, it is perfect with a hot cup of tea. During fasting month, having these in your freezer is a such a blessing for days when you are rushing through the day. These can be deep fried, shallow fried and even air fried for a guilt-free experience ;)

What are your favourite tea time snacks?

11/04/2021

When we got married Mrs. told me that she did not know how to make rotis (flat bread) but she knew how to make parathas (pan fried flat bread) Well, I think that was even better because what is better than a home cooked paratha? Have it for breakfast, or lunch, or dinner … or just for teatime… you can never go wrong with a paratha.

But to make it all double the fun, we also have stuffed paratha; a complete meal or should I say a complete party. Be it vegetable stuffing or minced beef or chicken, there are ample of choices and it is a great way to utilise leftovers as well. So when there were left over mashed potatoes, I got invited to our little paratha party for lunch. The chill in the weather complimented the menu and we enjoyed ours with tamarind chutney and raita (yogurt dip)

What is your favourite stuffed paratha?

Nan Khatai

Pakistani Shortbread cookies laced with cardamom. Crumbly and tender, these cookies are made with ghee and flour and they melt in the mouth. Sold at bakeries and sweet shops, these treats are perfect for teatime or just as a snack on its own. When we first moved out of Pakistan, my wife used to ask everyone to bring her bakery biscuits when they visit us and finding Nan Khatai in the mix was always a treat for us! We decided to make our own and these turned out so good that I think we will be needing a jar to store these all the time!

Happy Friday 🙂

Our Story...

Hello and welcome to our page that celebrates our love for food… I am Ahsan a full-time professional photographer and an “overtime” passionate foodie. Youngest of 9 siblings, I spent a lot of time helping my mother cook… something she excelled at. All my childhood I looked forward to mealtimes when the big table full of home-cooked food brought the whole family together almost as if stopping thetime! I always had great regard for her cooking skills because I could see her unlimited love in it and it fascinated me how this love not only filled our stomachs but also our hearts. Food for me was magical. When I went to Singapore for my higher studies, life offered me a chance to put to use everything I had observed as a child. I realized that I not only enjoyed eating but also cooking. Perhaps cooking even more and maybe sharing of that cooking more than everything else. I have taken after my mother..... 100% .... Mrs is my biggest critic but, also a strong cheerful supporter. Cooks well too but, makes even better stories. Some of you know her as The Ordinary Girl … more on her soon… … We started this page to share little snippets of one thing that connects us all from our everyday lives … Food and our love for food…. Come, join us

I am so very glad I visited your stall this afternoon, after almost deciding to come back another day. I bought a street burger and fruit salad. They were absolutely beautiful. Thank you. I hope you do decide to open a shop front so I can come visit and buy some of the other delicious looking food you had.
Had an Amazing food today 👍🏻

It has been a while and I have not done an introduction post especially for all of those who have joined this little tribe recently…. Thank you for being here, watching my stories, appreciating what I share with you on this platform and giving me your feedback and suggestions, which is my favourite part… So, here are a few things about me… • Originally from Pakistan, I am based in Adelaide, Australia. I am a true desi at heart who loves her chai, colourful culture and all kinds of traditional desserts • I started my blog when I lived in Malaysia to only document my travel and food adventures. Slowly it became a tiny space of my own where I started to share bits of different aspects of my life… now this blog is much more than what I intended it to be. • I am married to a filmmaker/photographer who shares my love of chai, encourages my love for expression and motivates me to do what I love. Together we run another food blog Foodie & Mrs. which is combination of all our talents. • I have taken after my father when it comes to disciplining and organizing myself and I have taken after my mother when it comes to being resilient and finding joy in simplest of things. • I dislike monotony. I keep developing new interests and when I decide to take on a task, I get obsessed until I achieve what I want. If you have been watching my stories, you know what it is nowadays... or do you? …..Lets guess!
Right from the heart .... Foodie & Mrs. ❤️
All the best!!
Good luck Mr & Mrs Foody :)
