Soft Pancake aka Malpau

Soft Pancake,Malpau, malpura, thehoggerz
We made malpua, the sweet pancakes for the first time during the commence of refreshing winters. The duo of pancake and rabdi keeps the taste buds alive in no time. The cardamom has been used to perfume homemade malpua. What I like about the two countries is the similarity between the food choices. Malpua or malpura are not the pancakes for breakfast but it is welcomed as a dessert in Asian countries. When these pancakes are rolled up in rabri, they bring out a joy in me. They are highly famous during the Indian and Pakistani gaiety! My mother in law has a great art in making dessert especially this one!

Classic Cinnamon Rolls - Mouth Watering Recipe and more !!

Classic Cinnamon Rolls www.thehoggerz.com

Karachi has stretched its new sectors, from china port to outwards towards the charna island. I feel the change palpably on couple of annual visits. There is a new network of roads, a proliferation of malls too. What I love about the city is the call of variety of food not restricted only towards Pakistani and Indian food but at my surprise I cram my trip with list of cuisines. December is a lovely time to visit, but I prefer warm days coaxing flowers to bloom, trumpet flowers hung heavy with their fragrance, in my father in-laws garden, we had many cups of afternoon tea and late lunches in the garden. How can I forget that mama in-law made her signature biryani of chicken along with fruit custard and of course sight seeing, the latter often makes me feel like a tourist.

Fasting, Feasting, Fun - Chicken Wonton and many more...

Chicken Wonton


In our house, we rejoice an array of vivid vibrant festivities altogether coming from India and Pakistan, This month is something sparkling maybe because this festival is very much ebullient to my hubby dearest. The month of joy, celebration, family and friends - it cares not whether there are loose bonds or unfinished business, its a month to pray together, eat together and laugh together. I have come to love the fasting and feasting days of the month Ramadan. These days, I'm indulging in preparing amazing meal plans for Hashim so that he finds interesting elements during Suhoor and Iftar by freezing his favorite eatables, where malpura and different kebabs make a routine visit joining with awesome chocolate custard or fruit custard. For custard recipes simply click on the highlighted links. I prefer making stuffed samosa's, wontons, spring rolls, cheesy peri-peri bites, cheese balls, kebabs at home to have a check on its hygiene and nutritive value, it's not only health-friendly but it comes with a larger batch than the ready-made one's. In our house, everyone just savors its taste. Even if it's frozen for days the taste and texture remain flawless.

From Playful Bunny To Dancing Hero!

Do you ever feel something is missing in your life? Have you ever felt bored or depressed at times? Despite of all the efforts you make to add entertainment in your life you yet feel hollow inside? Or it was just me! If you are one of me - let me give you a perfect partner that will help you to be yourself! 

Our world spins around our stunningly adorb bunny Nanu, he acts as an alarm and shows sign of life by 6 pm in the morning by giving repetitive high jumps against a classic french window. If this noisy trick doesn't work, then he will simply grip his water bowl in between his teeth and bang it against the floor, isn't he nimble witted  enough? We generally do not prefer to cage him as for us he is our baby, creating an environment that facilitates bunnies is very much important to keep them stress free. Yes! they too get anxiety attacks when left alone and not given requisite attention. We always pamper him by giving him different goodies in the form of cucumber, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, spinach, whatever he demands afterall he is the apple of my eye! Hashim loves to feed him all day and I embrace his fluffy cotton candy feels.

Gujarati Special Undhiyu

UNDHIYU PHOTOGRAPHY and RECIPE VEG FOOD

We made Undhiyu for the first time, the triune of sweet, spicy and tangy gave their appearance in the most welcoming and cherished form, most of the veggies were used to excel the homemade undhiyu and Hashim was busy boiling water with fresh lemongrass to gusto tisane, our rabbit nanu has a penchant for greens and he too feasted on the fresh brought greens before the actual makings, despite of all this, the greens kept giving, It's our Gujarati's affinity and memories from the virtual world informed, it is simplest of meal and that was regular at paterfamilias table, my food philosophy is to eat seasonal and maintain a moderate portion control, and this one is what I mean, I truly mean! One bite will take you to the valley of felicity and you'll want to make it all long. It's LOADED with veggies in every bite and finished with much craved muthiya's meaning fenugreek fritters and amazing touch of banana's. Hell yes! twisting combo of garden fresh veggies, delicate fritters and BANANAs, so good and picky husband approved.

Finger Fish Delight

Finger Fish Delight www.thehoggerz.com

I hope everyone had a groovy holiday week! We were away for a family vacay, so I'm little late this year. To help you restrain your goals for 2018, I am sharing another kids-friendly and freezer friendly sapid dish you can enjoy with no endeavour. You can even daub the fish strips and prepare them night before but, I prefer this recipe freshly done.I love the inside softness of its flesh that totally melts in the mouth giving the lovely and pleasant taste of aromatic spices, worthy of each bite. I love to dive in the pool of fish dishes, perfect for non-veg hoggerz who love their meal on platter in no time, and you can count this recipe as one. Easily coated with breadcrumbs and not to mention the minimum level of elements fishes asks for. Fishes fried with out without spices, they taste stupendously better anyways.
