Salaams! My name is Sidra and I welcome you to my blog. I am a British Pakistani Muslim, a teacher and a writer. This space is an amazing way to communicate with you guys on what I’ve been up to lately. It is a place for musings and thoughts in general. I am so grateful for your presence on my journey. I hope my words will provoke deep reflection and ultimately inspire you to make the best of your life…Look out for my new book, ‘Finding Peace Through Prayer and Love’ published by Beacon Books out soon inshaAllah!
This is one of my favourite go-to recipes when I haven’t cooked and I need a substantial meal for the seven of us. The most difficult thing is getting the children used to it as a main meal. I do this by serving it with paratha- buttery fried chappati- and also offering scrambled eggs as a side…seems to work!
You will need:
4-5 cloves of crushed garlic 1 tablespoon of basaar (Kashmiri curry powder)
1 heaped teaspoon of salt. 1 tablespoon dried Fenugreek
A handful of freshly chopped coriander
2 cups of dhaal/ I’ve used a mixture of mung dhaal yellow and red split peas
