This chef is really amazing, cooks in the wilderness many easy delicious dishes,salads and appetizers.

Ramadan Dishes.

Hello everybody.

Sorry for the laziness but Ramadan is really tiring specially after Iftar, one gets lazy and tired.

Strategy this month is to make little amounts of every dish so as not to have leftovers next day ,the past couple of days I made many dishes.

Ramadan Kareem.

Hello everybody.

Two days passed, I can say they were easy and smooth.
First day ritual dish was stuffed vine leaves and courgettes, mushroom soup and fatoush. Typically dessert was qatayef filled with cheese and walnuts.

Second day’s dish was okra in the oven and Iranian rice, as for dessert I tried a new recipe that I sorted out by mixing many similar ones of the same ingredients.

Pistachio rose water dessert, base was crumbled biscuits and butter,topping was a mix of whipping cream, heavy cream, yogurt, pistachios, rose water, pinch of saffron. All beaten till creamy then onto biscuits, cooled then garnished with pistachios.
Simple elegant dessert with Ramadan spirit in it.
