Buffalo Wings

Buffalo Wings | My Halal Kitchen

One of my favorite summertime recipes is for Buffalo Wings. The first time I ever had them was way back in college- it was the late night food of choice with friends- we didn’t have a care in the world about eating spicy food at that hour, or any food at all for that matter. It was quick, easy, inexpensive, ... Read More »

Violet Rice Pudding Recipe & a Chance to Learn How to Make Chocolate From a Professional Chocolatier

Uzma Sharif is a Chicago-based chocolatier and owner of Chocolat Uzma, both an online shop and a brick and mortar one  in Chicago. I just love supporting women in business, and those running a specialty food business at that. Her chocolates are infused with the exotic aromas of South Asia and made so beautiful you need some time to enjoy them ... Read More »

Cheesy Jalapeño Burgers

jalapeno burger and fries

It’s summer. It’s Ramadan. Do you blame me for craving a burger?  Hopefully not, because maybe you are, too. Chances are there’s plenty of people grilling the summer away as much as possible, since that’s usually the most popular item to throw on. In my case, grilling isn’t so easy so I opt for either oven baking or pan sautéing ... Read More »

Slow Cooker Haleem

I’ve been told for years that haleem, the puréed meat and grains dish with South Asian flavors,  is a favorite Iftar dish for so many Muslims observing the Ramadan fast.  Though not a common way of eating meat American-style, (cooked down for hours and combined with grains all puréed together) if you pre-judge it and dismiss it, you may never ...

Grilled Eggplant and Pepper Salad

Summer food is equivalent to grilling, right? Well, in the intense heat we’re feeling here in the Midwest I’m not sure everyone is so excited about firing up the grills all the time. I mean, it’s really hot- even in the evenings I’ve seen temps at 98° F. That said, with all the amazing summer produce to be found at ... Read More »

Couscous with Dates and Butter

I recently posted a recipe for Moroccan Goat Stew which is fabulously delicious and can certainly be served over rice or even with just bread. When I was making it, however, I found myself craving a sweetened couscous. I thought about adding dried apricots to the couscous but I just didn’t have them on hand. I did have a handful ...

Moroccan Goat Stew

Have you ever tried goat meat?  If you’ve seen them in real life, they’re not as meaty as those furry and cuddly lambs we all love to pet, though they’re cute and gentle creatures created for traversing rocky terrain around the world. When it comes to cooking goat meat, it can be a lot bonier than lamb, so some people have ... Read More »

Ground Turkey with Potatoes, Tomatoes, Mint & Parsley

Ground Turkey with Potatoes and Mint | My Halal Kitchen

This is a quick weeknight meal if there ever was one. If you can’t find halal ground turkey you can substitute with ground beef or chicken instead; alternatively- and if you’re feeling adventurous- you can purchase the whole turkey (typically found in the freezer at most halal meat markets) and grind the meat yourself with attachments that can be used ...

Sautéed Spinach, Baby Zucchini and Mushrooms

Sauteed Spinach and Zucchini | My Halal Kitchen

The season in between spring and summer is the time to make the best use of delicious veggies- spinach, baby zucchini, fingerling potatoes, and white button mushrooms. Fortunately for us, they all go so well together in flavor profiles, too. Try this saute recipe over rice or pasta. We even had the leftovers stuffed in pita halves with melted cheese. Ah-mazing… ...
