Do give my dads restaurant in al madinah , Saudi Arabia a visit and leave your review
Hello there everyone!
so it has been a long long time since I barely posted anything , I sincerely apologize for inactivity , soo many people have requested soo many recipes and I have literally been lost in my own little world of freelancing , after watching a bit of my idol chef Gordon Ramsay , my cooking passion has come back to me , and I am back with a recipe I was begging people to teach me , I saw a couple recipes on the internet , after trying many recipes , I turned out adjusting my own recipe! .. and to be honest I’m not a “cream of chicken soup” fan , I always kind of hated it , but it’s one of my favorites now
NOTE: I’m not a chef or an expert , so I don’t bother measuring things (LOL) I just throw in this and that and adjust till I sense the right consistency , so I apologize if y’all face any trouble making the soup , I’m soo used to making it , I barely measure the ingredients at all , so I hope y’all are smart enough to handle the measurements , I may be an software engineering geek , but I’m really not nerdy enough to remember, how much and blah blah blah .. so good luck! ( I feel rather guilty and ashamed to be honest )
so anyways here we go!
bone less chicken or 2 chicken breasts , (cubed or stripped)
3 diced or sliced carrots
1 medium green/spring/white onions , or your typical onions
salt and pepper to taste
Italian seasoning for garnishing
2 cups store bought chicken broth or chicken stock cubes will do
1 packet fresh cream
TIP : serve sprinkled with Italian seasoning , chunks of toasted seasoned bread and cheese sticks ,….or in seasoned bread bowls! … the way I like to serve this soup 😉
Mmmmm looks beautiful eh? well do try this recipe and let me know how it went
Tell you what? , I’ll upload the bread bowl recipe too!
Hope you guys enjoy making it just as mush as I do ,subscribe to my blog for more upcoming recipes , have a super wonderful day my loves!
Thank you soo much for reading
Hello there , G mirza here
So today I’m back with another recipe! the extremely tempting ” Fasolia ” pronounced “فاصوليا” in arabic , this is one of my favourite middle eastern dishes , It goes great with shai Adeni ( tea adeni ) Aden is a city in Yemen.
Me and my parents go to the traditional Yemeni restaurant quite often , we’re absolutely in love with everything about it , but after a while , I thought why not make it at home!
The ingredients are super simple , and this recipe turned out close to the Fasolia I had at the restaurant.
so here are the simple ingredients you’re gonna need:
1 cup red beans ( or you can use three store bought cans )
1 green pepper
1 big onion
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup tomato paste
salt to taste
a pinch of black pepper
1 teaspoon powdered cumin
1 teaspoon paprika or red chilli powder
3 tablespoons olive oil
Now heres how you make it:
So yeah guys that was my latest recipe , I hope you enjoyed it , do let me know what you think about it!

hey guys so here’s another recipe that’s really trending these days
everybody loves those darling french macarons ❤
I found a recipe on the internet for normal french macarons , thought i’d turn in into chocolate!
so you guys should know that the french macaron’s are really technical to make , and require alotta patience , and do remember they won’t come out perfect every single time you make them ( unless you’re a master chef ) , the might crack or won’t come out with feet , all sorts of disasters can happen ..so don’t be disappointed if they turn out bad
so here’s a recipe i experimented with
3/4 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
1 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 egg whites ( room temperature )
hope you all enjoyed the recipe 🙂

waddup people? 🙂
so here’s another requested recipe that i’m gonna share with you guys here
everybody’s favourite Arab street food , the indulgious basbousa!
now if you guys go to the internet trying to find a nice basbousa recipe , don’t waste your time because most of those recipes out there will totally end up in a disaster!
my philosophy of recipe research is basically trying out a whole bunch of recipes from different chefs and then adjusting my OWN ratio of ingredients , now of course everything doesn’t work for everyone ,but i’m telling you guys that i’ve heard alot of recipes and recommendations , but they just won’t work!
So when i heard people like , don’t do this , don’t do that …I actually started to do the opposite of what they told me …like for example
someone told me its great with yogurt …I never put yogurt
someone told me to NEVER use eggs…..i put two eggs! ….i don’t mean to be disrespectful or anything … but my point is , what’s wrong with trying? and WHY not? the best way to master something is actually trying it over and over..
so after alot of experiments … I finally put together a fool proof recipe that wont disapoint you!
so basically i learned without eggs your basbousa is going to collapse! , use as less baking powder as possible and DON’T pour boiling hot syrup over your basbousa!
otherwise you’ll mess it up and end with a tantrum blaming the mess on whoever walked in on you when you were baking ( yeah it happens to me every time i fail in a recipe …my bad )
so anyhow 🙂 here are the ingredients for the basbousa :
2 cups semolina
2 eggs ( room temperature )
8 tablespoons of butter at room temperature
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 cup milk
split almonds ( or whole )
1. preheat the oven , then in a large bowl mix together eggs , sugar and butter , beat it with a hand mixer or just a spatula ( i use a spatula ) for 2 minutes or until the mixture is slightly fluffy , add the milk and mix well.
2. mix in the semolina and baking powder , mix it well for a minute .
3. pour the mixture in a baking pan or a traditional tempered traditional dish because i think it looks pretty , and i’ve seen basbousa in bakeries baked in these ceramic dishes ( like in the example below )
cut squares or diamonds , whichever you prefer and top with almonds here’s an example (it’s baked though )
4. bake the basbousa on the bottom burner until it doesn’t budge when you shake it , then turn on the top burner , bake until golden brown , then take it out from the oven and pour the sugar syrup on the basbousa until it’s half full , i would recommend just a little bit more than half ( syrup should be lukewarm , hot but won’t burn you if put your finger in ) leave it covered for ten minutes .. then serve! 🙂
3 cups of sugar
1 cup water
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Okay you guys so that’s the basbousa recipe , i hope y’all enjoyed it

heres another recipe that i get asked for alot , so BEHOLD them legendary PANCAKES! 😉 ….mmm there’s nothing as satisfying as fresh hot pancakes with a nice cup of tea in the morning ,yup i’m a tea person , anyways the pancakes recipe is no different than the waffles recipe , and it practically has the same ingredients and same ratio aswell..
so let’s get on with the recipe then …
2 cups all purpose flour or plain flour or whole wheat flour for a rich source of fiber (known as brown flour in some places )
2 cups of milk
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
a quarter teaspoons of salt
3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter , plus extra for greasing pan
so i hope you all enjoyed this recipe .. 🙂 feel free to ask any questions , and leave a suggestion in the comments below for the next recipe..
hope your all having an AMAZING day! 🙂
HUMOR GAME : pssst … can you guys find a hidden word in the pancake? 😉 lets see if you can find it , its super obvious
hey what’s up you guys? 🙂 , i’ve been hooked on food photography lately
so i was just cooking random stuff trying to take good shots… and cooking different things reminded me that a couple people asked me to share my waffle recipe with them , and i forgot every single time i thought why not i put it on my blog so it could help everyone! 🙂
so yeah waffles are not hard to make at all , no precise measurements needed really , and are perfect for breakfast ..so here’s what you gotta have to make them: a waffle maker , you can probably get one of those from walmart , and from hyper panda , carrefourre or Extra if you live in saudi arabia, the one i got as you can tell from the square shape , is a belgium waffle maker.
so here are the ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour or plain flour ( you can use whole wheat flour aswell )
2 cups milk
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
quarter teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons of butter ( room temperature )
(you can make them the traditional way by combining wet and dry ingredients separately )
but here’s how i make them
a few tips :
put the waffles in a toaster if you like them crispy like me 😉 , and using a mixer isn’t necessary , you can either whisk it with a whisk , or simply use a spatula , it really doesn’t make a difference , i mean without going into them fancy gluten theories ( correct me if i’m wrong no biggie )
so i hope you enjoyed the recipe ,try it and let me know in the comments below about how it went , and also which recipe do you want me to share next? I’ll share it as soon as i can
hope y’all enjoyed 🙂
