Thai Beef Curry Stew

Thai Beef Chicken | My Halal Kitchen

This recipe comes from Derya Singhsumalee, a former teacher colleague of mine who is such a fun and interesting person.  She is very well-traveled, is of Turkish ethnicity and married to a man from a Thai Muslim family. In the school lunch room we used to talk quite a bit about cultural diversity and, of course, food. She was very familiar ... Read More »

Moroccan Tagine with Meatballs and Eggs

Moroccan Tagine with Meatballs and Eggs

Any type of Moroccan tagine is something I’ll try and usually love, really any Moroccan dish at all, especially ones that you don’t even actually have to cook in a ‘tagine’ pot, per se.  In this recipe I used Saffron Road’s Moroccan Tagine Simmer Sauce to make something I’d always wanted to try- a tagine with beef kofta (meatballs) and ...

Smoothie Packs

Smoothie Packs | My Halal Kitchen

This past Ramadan I got really used to drinking smoothies at iftar and sometimes even at suhoor.  Now here were are a couple of months out, and they are very much still on my radar, especially since I’ve frozen so much of the fruit that was leftover and still gets left over from weekly shopping. But what I decided to ... Read More »

Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade | My Halal Kitchen

Lemonade is the quintessential summer time drink in America, isn’t it? I absolutely love it and it will always remind me of my childhood days when I had my own lemonade stand outside of my house where I grew up. I set up a small table with my mom’s pitcher full of lemonade made from Country Time® lemonade packets, paper ... Read More »

Strawberry & Watermelon Zipzicles®

Strawberry & Watermelon Zipsicles | My Halal Kitchen

 As a kid I remember having popsicles from those thin and vertical ziploc-like bag almost every day of the summer. My mom used to buy them from the grocery store and many times they weren’t frozen until you put them in the freezer; instead they had some sort of colored juice or syrup in each bag. I loved the various ... Read More »

Stewed Zucchini & Tomatoes | My Halal Kitchen

Use a large saute pan to heat some oil, then add freshly cut vegetables such as zucchini, other types of squash, tomatoes, beans and garlic. ... Read More »

Tandoori Spiced Baked Chicken in Yogurt Masala

Tandoor Baked Chicken | My Halal Kitchen

If you’ve ever been to an Indian restaurant that has a clay oven, you may have tried their tandoori. It’s typically made by adding the meat (usually chicken) to a very, very hot tandoor oven. They also make bread in this ovens in which the dough actually sticks to the side of the oven and cooks itself quickly- I absolutely love that! ... Read More »

Beef Kabobs with Grilled Vegetables

Beef Kebobs with Grilled Vegetables | My Halal Kitchen

Summertime is the best time to have kebobs- out on the grill, finally! Although here, it’s been a very rainy season plus with Ramadan falling in summer this year, it’s been a little difficult to get out on the BBQ before dark, so this recipe can be made indoors or out. I’ll show you how. Here’s what you need: Fresh ... Read More »

Roast Chicken with Couscous, Prunes, Apricots, Dates & Almonds

I guess this Ramadan proves that I’m drawn to Mediterranean and North African food as my go-to cuisine for the month. Not sure why, exactly, but it has so many bonuses, so why not?  The mixture of sweet and savory, the healthy and light fare offered, the aromatic spices used- yum, yum and more yum. So, yes, please. The original recipe ... Read More »
