Faaiza’s Masala Tuna

This Tuna recipe will help you make use of all that tuna you have stocked up  in your storage or pantry. Its great for breakfast, brunch or as a filling for sandwiches. This is a Sunday brunch staple that I grew up eating at my Aunts house. Her daughter in law Faaiza was always busy…

Pancake Tray Bake

Its day 10 of the nationwide lockdown here in South Africa,  efforts of flattening the curve against the spread of covid-19. Families are spending more time at home and have more time on their hands to experiment in the kitchen. However its starting to take its toll on the primary cook in the family (I’m…

Baked Beans Shakshouka

i am revisiting recipes from my blog to create content for my YouTube Page. I created this baked beans shakshouka ages ago on a family vacation. Self-Catering Vacays are always fun but one person (thats me) always gets kitchen duty. I love serving one pot meals when there are lots of people. It takes just…

Cheaters guide to big breakfasts- Frittata​

So here’s the thing. We are a BIG family and breakfasts are always tricky. I personally hate eating alone, especially when everyone has already devoured all the food and has left you with that one cold egg with the wrinkly egg yolk. There’s always that one person that is left in the kitchen flipping eggs…

The Papaya Sundae

  Brunches are meant for Sundays ,  it’s like a match made in heaven. My Blog has become a curation of all the breakfasts I make, I seem to be a lot more willing to prepare breakfast than any other meal in the day.  My breakfasts always seem to include eggs but this week I was…

Bed and Breakfast

I’ve promised (for a while now) that I will post some content on the blog, however, I never get down to it. I started a new job, my child is older and requires a lot more of MY energy and I’m STILL studying. It’s almost March and I still haven’t even attempted to begin to pursue…

Green Shakshouka

To be very honest, I was almost over shakshouka. Until I realized that I am an Indian and masala eggs are my thing. The good old fashioned red shakshouka is fine, but get a hold of this one, GREEN shakshouka. While recipe testing, I burnt my onions twice (these Turkish pots HEAT UP FAST) and…

Zafrani Oats- Ramadan Collection

Ramadhan is quite different here in Dubai. The days are longer than that in South Africa and much hotter as well. Due to these factors, majority of the people tend to become nocturnal. Most activities are shifted to the evenings in order to accommodate for the portion of the population that are fasting during this…

Winter Warmers- Rice Pudding

Winter is my favorite season; I suppose that has a lot to do with my Tibb Temperament (click the link to read more). Winter evenings should be spent with loved ones and filled with lots of comfort food. I decided to create a series of recipes called “Winter Warmers”, to bring in the flavors and…

A Twist on Toast

I recently stumbled across a post of Shashi Naidoo’s, in which she shared a picture of the most indulgent Croissant French toast. Upon further research I found out that its made at the same restaurant/ café which I have been dying to visit! Manna Epicure is a rustic yet trendy café located in the heart…
