G&G Interview Series 

4 BLOGGER RECIPES YOU HAVE TO TRY TODAY!

 

JASHN-E-AZAADI MUBARAK! TO all my fellow Pakistani peeps living in and outside of our home country! I initially thought I would do a huge patriotic post to honor the birth of our country and talk about how my heart will always bleed green.

But instead, I thought today would be a good day to spread some holiday cheer and connect with fellow Pakistanis! Continuing our blogger interview series, I’ve hand-picked these AMAZING Pakistani bloggers for you who are bringing their best recipes from their kitchen and sharing their thoughts with you.

Without further ado lets find out what deliciousness these bloggers have picked for us, how they manage hosting at home and what patriotic wishes they have for us

 

A. RAIYA – BLOGGER AT RaiyaWrites.

First up we have this literary genius who has a sword for a pen and she picked her Balochi Gosht recipe for us today.

1. Tell us a little about the woman behind  “Raiya Writes”
I am an electronics engineer by profession (I work for the aviation industry) and a writer by passion. I have been writing since teenage. I started with children’s magazines and moved on to freelance writing for newspapers, websites and magazines. In 2015, I had my baby and I couldn’t get time for writing with a full time job and baby. That’s when I started my blog to stop my pen from getting rusty. I couldn’t write for newspapers or magazines anymore as it requires intensive editing and I don’t have the time. However I can create a blog post anywhere( on my office commute, in the kitchen while waiting for the meat to go tender, while sitting on a bench as my baby plays in the park) I can just type and hit post. This was the only reason, however, the content is now geared more towards lifestyle and women empowerment.

2. Do you cook anything special on the 14th of August? If so, what do you make?
Not specifically 14th August but I make something special every off day because during the week, I am super busy so I can’t make difficult or time consuming meals (For weekdays, I have a list of easy quick meals) but on every off day I try to give my family the 3 if not 5 star experience *lol*.

3. Why have you chosen this particular recipe for our readers? What’s the back-story?
I didn’t know how to cook before marriage (learnt everything from my mother in law) but in my jahez suitcase I had asked ammi to put lots of Masala magazines ( the ones from the Masala TV channel). This recipe is from one of those magazines and is a susraali favourite now. I only post those recipes on my blog which I have made 4 or 5 times and they have turned out great every single time and my husband and my guests in the dawat at my place loved them . This is one of those recipes. 

4. What tricks and tips do you use when you are hosting a Dawat (Dinner) at your place? 

Tip number one
1. I make a dish of every item like one meat dish, one chicken dish, one fish, one keema, one sabzi etc so there is something for everyone and no one leaves hungry

Tip number two
2. Secondly to make so many items, for dawats I usually choose recipes that require just marination and cooking (and not much bhoonafying) so that I can marinate them the day before and just have to cook on dawats.
All tips are taught by my super amazing mother in law. I really couldn’t have come this far in cooking without her help and support. 

5. Any Jashn-e-Azaadi wishes for our readers?

Pakistanis are super talented and gifted. We all are just waiting for the right leader and direction. I hope this time our chosen leader delivers what he has promised because we have been let down so many times that many people have left all hope of Pakistan’s revival and have become cynics. I hope Imran Khan is able to change all that and can make Pakistan win its first political world cup. Pakistan Zindabad!

 

Wow thankyou Raiya, That balochi gosht looks oh-so-good. Guys, you have to try it! Im definitely bookmarking this for the weekend.

1. Tell us a little about the woman behind your blog

Hello, I am Aasia Rizwan ‘chef’, food photographer’, short film maker’, and host. And I am not going to stop anywhere because I believe we have only one life and so much to do so don’t waste time on thinking or complaining. Just do it.

2. Do you cook anything special on the 14th of August? If so, what do you make?

I make desi food on 14th specially dessert. Biryani and Firni is must in our dinner.

3. Why have you chosen this particular recipe for our readers? What’s the back-story?

I have chosen chocolate lava cake recipe for you because this is the starting point of my success. I was under training of becoming a Chef. In class test I was failed in making this lava cake but I never wanted to fail in final exam so I kept practicing and in final practical I was on top of my class, so it always reminds me to never quit, I can fix it.

4. What tricks and tips do you use when you are hosting a Dawat (Dinner) at your place? 

Whenever I host a Dawat on my place people expect ” Biryani” in main course. So I have to make Biryani every time. I make special salads and desserts for dawats means if your start and ending is good people will remember your dawat for ever.

5. Any Jashn-e-Azaadi wishes for our readers?

I so want to show a positive image of Pakistan to promote tourism and food industry.

C. Wafa ن – INSTAGRAMMER at An Alluring Puzzle

And you all must remember the pen wizard Wafa ن from last week. She gave us some very insightful tips and wrote an exclusive recipe for us!

We did Catch up with Wafa ن to throw some patriotic wishes our way!

Wafa what do you want to tell our readers on this Independence Day

I just wanna suggest one thing. Try to just adapt one good habit and focus on maintaining that through out the year, till the next Independence day. For example. Cleanliness.
Make sure you keep clean your institutes, parks, beaches, don’t throw garbage everywhere.

One year is enough to develop any good habit and become addicted to that good deed, next year you’ll add another good habit, follow it and repeat. Slowly and gradually you’ll start to follow many good habits, that will eventually make a difference.

Thankyou so much Wafa ن! You are the man! Wafa ن writes amazing pieces over at her gram. Check it out on your way down this post.

D. FARAH – BLOGGER AT Through My eyes and heart

And last but definitely not the least, we have the vivacious Farah, who writes just as good as she cooks! She has chosen her recipe of Spicy Fried Mutton for us today!

Click here for the recipe of Spicy Fried Mutton By Farah

1. Tell us a little about the woman behind your blog

This is Farah, I blog at “Through My Eyes”. It has not been a long time that I started it. I write about parenting hacks that can benefit a lot of moms or moms-to-be. Being a foodie I share yummilicous recipes on my blog every now and then and review some beauty products which I myself have tried and loved.

I live in Jeddah and living an expat life sometimes really gets on my nerves so when I started blogging I really met some cool people.

2. Do you cook anything special on the 14th of August? If so, what do you make?

I haven’t cooked anything special since last 2 years but this time I have planned to bake some cup cakes *fingers crossed* 🙈

3. Why have you chosen this particular recipe for our readers? What’s the back-story?

I chose this recipe because Eid al-Adha is around the corner so people actually look for yummy meat recipes and I thought it might turn out to be helpful.

4. What tricks and tips do you use when you are hosting a Dawat (Dinner) at your place?
  • I stick to the recipes which I have already tried, I don’t go with some new recipe experiment while hosting a party because you never know how it will turn out. So stick to the dishes you are pro at.
  • I take the time to set a proper table. Instead of going with paper or plastic plates I work with what I have got in a fun and creative way.
5. Any Jashn-e-Azaadi wishes for our readers?

I wish that we Pakistanis become more responsible with respect to our duties and not always blaming everything on the government. Help the government by paying your taxes on time, by not accepting any kind of bribe and not violating the traffic rules. 

 

Loved Chatting with you Farah. You guys can follow and check out more posts from Farah right below
