Imagine being a 9 year old little girl telling your grandmother, who had flown over from Iran and was stood cooking in your aunts kitchen ‘you are doing that wrong!’…..
Happy Chinese New Year!
Chinese & Persian New Year have some similarities. Both are celebrated on a different day each year. Chinese New Year due to following the lunar calendar and Persian New Year marking the coming of Spring time.
We love pancakes here at My Little Persian Kitchen! But who doesn’t? They are such a nostalgic treat and so versatile too. Sweet or savoury, scotch, crepes or buttermilk, I like them all.
…..on the odd occasion that I do get to enjoy, savour the moment and really take in what I am doing, I want there to be cake involved!
This Persian Milk Chicken is absolutely delightful and so easy to make during the week when you are busy or like this evening when it’s been a busy week and you just want something yummy but low maintenance!
I was a really fussy eater growing up. I would refuse to eat meat & made my dad pick all the bits of meat out of any khoresht I was having. I wouldn’t go near fish and hated all manner of dairy.
Is it just me or does everything feel a little bit better with chocolate?
It is a well known fact that I absolutely love this time of year. All the pretty lights, Christmas music and of course all the sweet treats make everything feel really magical.
I love Summer. I love all of our seasons and how different they all are. I am however 100% more suited to Autumn than Summer for a number of reasons…
Hello lovely readers. I had a bit of a kitchen disaster a few weeks ago and I completely ran out Advieh! This is possibly the worst thing I can imagine running out of at this moment in time. Not least because Autumn has arrived and the fact that all I want to eat is huge bowls of khorest whilst wearing PJs and slippers (the uniform of the working from home community!)
I love the crisp clear mornings and chilly nights that have arrived along with Halloween this week. We have always celebrated Halloween, even as a small child my mum used to throw the best Halloween Parties.
Khroest Ghemeh, as all Iranians will testify to, is a completely indulgent stew with chips and served with rice! So carb dodgers be warned! It is worth having an extra long run for though, just to indulge in this. When we have Persian Dinner Parties, my carb loving husband always asks me ‘can you make the one with chips?’
I am back! Apologies for being quiet over the last two weeks. My boys and I decided to take a much needed holiday and took a break from everything. It was absolute bliss! I do love escaping every now and again and switching off entirely but I also love coming home, especially to this lovely autumnal weather. It makes me crave massive bowls of comfort food packed with oodles of flavour!
