Steamed Fish with Lemon Garlic Chilli Coriander Mango Salad, White Rice & Red Curry Chicken (recipes have been posted earlier) I enjoyed this fish so much! What a beautiful blend of tangy, sweet, sour, strong notes to this easy 20 minute recipe! Completeley inspired by PAI from Hot Thai Kitchen who has an awesome You Tube Channel. Thanks @hotthaikitchen for being so phenomenal! I added a couple of ingredients to adjust it to my taste. Here's what you need to do! Wash, scour, clean a whole fish. Give it a salt bath, pat dry, make incisions lengthwise so the marinade can seep in, stuff 1 stick lemon grass in the opening so it takes away any fishy smell. Steam this medium fish for 8 minutes and a large one for 10. Make the sauce: 2 cups warm chicken broth. First add 12 pieces finely chopped garlic, 3 red chillies deseeded & finely chopped, 1 tbsp fish sauce, 1 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tsp brown sugar/palm sugar, a fistful of coriander chopped. Mix well. Adjust according to personal preference of how sweet, sour, salty you want the dish to be. Pour this sauce over the steamed fish! Garnish with basil! Serve with white rice! #instafood #foodofinstagram #foodie #healthyeating #foodphotography #fish #steamedfish #thaicuisine #redcurrychicken #mango #salad #ifnatcancook #oilfree #foodphotos #foodstagram #foodlover #foodgram #cleaneating #foodblog #foodpage #foodvsco #foodaddict #foodnetwork #foodporn #foodfeed #ifnatcancooksocanyou #foodpics #foodblogger #foodoftheday

From the @adeelchaudry1 Series of -Top Burgers- #3-BYOB (smoky BBQ grilled burger) This classic burger, like its name, combines two of our favorite flavors: smoky and BBQ. The charbroiled, thick meat patty offers wonders in way of texture and sets off bursts of flavors on your tastebuds. The star of the burger was the giant onion ring on top of the patty. The crunchy, crispy onion ring complimented the grease of the patty well and the two different textures along with the fresh bun were a burger lover’s delight. The onion ring and beef patty smothered with a secret bbq sauce ensured that every bite was full of smoky, slightly bitter and spicy sweet bbq taste. The potato wedges tied the whole dish together and made for one hell of a burger experience . . . #foodinc #burger #bestburger #connoisseur #pakistan #lahore #burgerking #insider #tasty #9gag #london #newyork #biggestburger @buzzfeedtasty @buzzfeedfood

Come join me at the Royal Agricultural Fair @theroyalfair this Sunday, November 3rd! I’ll be part of an all star chefs’ line-up at the Royal Culinary Academy, hosting a workshop featuring one of my favourite recipes (some very special pancakes!), using local ingredients and eggs from @burnbraefarms. I can’t wait to see all of you! My session is on November 3rd, at 11AM. Sessions and tickets are limited so get them today. Event info in my bio above. ⁣ ⁣ As a WoC chef, this project is one that is very close to my heart. You ask why? Because The Royal Culinary Academy is an equal opportunity and equal pay initiative. This year, we have all accepted the same appearance fee, because equity matters. Pay Equity Matters.⁣ ……⁣ #RAWF19 #RoyalCulinaryAcademy #GetAgricultured 📷: Khurram Sikander

I’m not into fancy designs or perfection when it comes to baking. I started a chevron pattern with the rhubarb and then thought, ah, forget it, this is so not my style. (I’ve seen some of you do beautiful chevron designs — chapeau!) This cake tasted lovely, but I was unhappy with the way the rhubarb looked. It was not as firm (when raw) as it should have been for an upside down cake. Aesthetic issues aside, the whole grain Emmer flour my friend Dawn gave me paired beautifully with the rhubarb. I also added some saffron. Here’s my recipe, please tag me if you bake it! I’d love to see your photos. 5 stalks rhubarb (I didn’t weigh them, sorry!) 175g butter 225g coconut sugar 3 eggs 250g Emmer flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp pink or sea salt 1/2 tsp crushed cardamom seeds 75ml buttermilk 1 tsp crushed saffron steeped in 1 tbsp water 75g sour cream Cut rhubarb to your liking, and arrange on a 24-cm Springform pan, lined with parchment paper. The rhubarb should cover the entire base of the pan. Grease sides of the pan. Pre-heat oven to 180C. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and crushed cardamom. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one by one, till incorporated (I used a handheld mixer). Add half of flour. Slowly drizzle in buttermilk and saffron. Add rest of your flour. Mix to combine. Then, using a silicon spatula, add sour cream and stir till combined. Spoon batter over rhubarb in pan; smooth top with an offset spatula. Bake 45-50 minutes, or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake in the Springform pan on a wire rack, for at least 30 minutes. When cool, invert onto a flat platter. ____ #vscocam #vscofood #upsidedowncake #bakers #ilovebaking #spicespoon #easyentertaining #pastrychef #ig_exquisite #rhubarb #thebest_capture #organic #baking #foodstylists #foodoftheworld #ig_food #cake #sharefood #timeless_shots #feedfeed #food52 #igers_photographers #easyentertaining #eattheworld #foodtravel #foodculture

“if i close my eyes, i can pretend I didn’t actually eat this much.” 🙈 . . I am a nihari person. Like, that’s just one food that would always be my go-to as a child even. So much so, that karahi and BBQ everywhere have always been second choice. . That was before I discovered the beauty of mutton karahi – one where the meat is melt-in-your-mouth and cooked through. . . Most recently, I had it at @pakcuisinepk. Apparently, the chef here is someone who used to work at Butt Karahi in Lahore. I don’t know more about that but the karahis were legit good. . . Their BBQ needs more work. The suji ka halwa needs to have a little less elaichee. But all of this I can easily set aside, in the face of their mutton or desi murgh karahi cooked in butter, especially when paired with garlic naan and raita. . . I was also really hungry by the time the food arrived, so I basically ate for two: for me and my future self. . . No regrets. . . [drinking game: take a shot (of lassi 😋) every time I say “karahi” in this caption.]
