About Me

Hello Dear Readers,

Thank-you for stopping by my humble blog. I'm very excited to start this new journey with each and every one of you. To start off, let me tell you a little about myself.

My name is Aisha, and for as long as I can remember, I've always been interested and fascinated by food. I was lucky to grow up in a home where my parents, especially my mom, fostered my love of cooking. No matter how terrible my dishes were, my parents kept encouraging me.

My parents were both born and raised in Pakistan. They moved to America, met each other, married and settled down in the suburbs. My entire childhood is laced with memories of parties and celebrations filled with delicious Pakistani food. Whether it was fried samosa, chicken tikka, or gulab jamen, my mother would make each dish with love and careful attention.

When my husband and I were married, I spent the better part of that first year frantically calling my mother on cooking advice. She was patient enough to calm me down and give me tips that I still use today.

Now that we have moved out west, away from our parents, my fondness and longing for South Asian food has grown into something fierce. I was lucky enough to marry a man who loves South Asian cuisine, but not so lucky to move to an area lacking said cuisine.

So I've decided to start this blog as a way to pay homage to my mother & her recipes, my parent's culture, and to be able to share all of this with you!

Thanks again for stopping by. Bon Appetit!

Hello Aisha,
I am so happy that I have find this blog.
I have been searching a lot of how can I make a very good spicy food, and specially sauces to deep it with Naan. Yummy...

I am a portugese girl, and an indian cuisine fan.

My boyfriend is also from Pakistan, and he loves extremely spicy food. In fact, he eats chillis with vinegar!

Anyway, I just wanna tell you, I'm looking foward to try your recepies, and I hope you still keep doing this!

Khuda Afiz!
