~Chicken Amber Curry~

Robert Frost is one of my favourite poets in English Literature. “The Road Not Taken” is perhaps his most infamous of poems, but he wrote many others just like it. He is particularly known as a “Nature Poet” because of his consistent and constant use of Natural scenes, elements and his expressions of sensuous pleasures…

~Shashlik~ 

Many of us don’t know that Shashlik initially originated from Eastern Europe. It is a descendant of the word “shish” or “sis” in the turkish and Iranian language which actually means ‘skewers’ which later became “shyshlik” in Russian and journeying through Southern and Central Asia, when it came to the land of curry lovers, settled…

– Chicken Curry Dhaba –

Okay! I confess, I have a fascination for legacy recipes. I know, I know, some of you would say what’s so tempting about a recipe; but see, here is the thing, legacy recipes are not merely recipes, they are history. They are part of a person living on in our homes on our dining tables…

-Afghan Seekh Kebab Curry-

Ryle Smith said “some of the poorest countries in the world come up with the most amazing dishes” and for Afghanistan that is absolutely true. For two millennia, Afghanistan had been a country playing host to travellers and traders from across the Globe, hence, serving as a crossroad to a rich culture that ushered in…
