When I went to Irvine, CA last April for Sameer’s Eats Halal Food Tour, Lime Chicken Tacos was one of the recipes on the menu that I demonstrated. I made a quick tomatillo salsa (salsa verde) to go with it. Sameer got a try and so did a few fortunate halal foodies out there in the audience. It was so much fun- I need to dig out those ...

Cholay: Indian Spiced Chickpea Curry

Spicy Indian dishes are a real treat to me. It’s food I crave, but don’t always make for myself. I don’t even seek out too many Indian restaurants (although I would love to). Instead, I learned most of what I know about Indian food from friends- in their kitchens, snooping around pots of curry, pans of biryani and asking a ... Read More »

Corn mango and chili salad cups | My Halal Kitchen

I don’t know about you, but my time in the kitchen just keeps on getting shorter and shorter and my patience level for long, drawn out dishes and cooking is sort of unmentionable these days. I want fast, but delicious and healthy- unprocessed, non-GMO, organic, etc. etc. Not easy to do but once I find the right ingredients, it’s like ... Read More »

Arroz con Gandules | Puerto Rican Rice with Pigeon Peas

Puerto Rican, Rice, Arroz

I grew up eating arroz con gandules, that quintessential rice dish that every Puerto Rican family has their own version of making. Most of the time it was made con pollo, or with chicken, but it was also made vegetarian, too. My mom is an American-born Puerto Rican whose family was very traditional in their foodways so this dish was always at ... Read More »
