CHICKEN CROQUETTES:

When masala tv started broadcasting, it changed the whole concept of the food industry in Pakistan,It basically gave access to someone sitting at home , who had no idea about cooking , a "how to" manual about anything and everything food related.Nothing was off limits any more.I swear, no where in the world has chicken been cooked in so many different ways ;)

PAKORA 101

When i was in middle school i was a very chubby kid.In fact my nickname was "moti" (or fatso).... ;)I hated that nickname with a vengeance but i couldn't do much about it as i loved to eat(and also i had not yet been introduced to the concept of starving my self to death in the name of dieting).In time i lost most of my baby fat and Allah gifted me with a metabolism that is too fast for my weight to catch up:) But my love for food is still there in all its glory.I am a junk food addict (literally). I can eat from food stalls on my street for the rest of my life and not complain.
 
My mom is a great cook(as all Pakistani moms are). I always wanted to cook like her but for some reason i could never get quiet the flavor profile that she has in her food. Pakora's are the first thing i learned to cook exactly like her.So i am really proud of this recipe.

Pancake Rolls:



One day i was just channel surfing (b/c i was bored out of my mind) & i came across this chef who was making these rolls.The problem was that he was speaking Punjabi(& the only Punjabi i speak or understand is limited to the phrase"Aae shadi nai ho sakdi oye!!!").So the first time i attempted to make these,it was more or less from visual memory than from any real understanding of what the chef was trying to teach:)Suffice it to say , i failed miserably.Since than i have tweaked the recipe quite a bit.Now at least it is edible & presentable(lolz).
