Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings 1

I love chicken wings. It’s the ultimate party food of all time. My favorite chicken wing is the BBQ ones, but this Asian twist will do, when I run out of BBQ sauce.

I love the nutty flavor of toasted sesame seeds. It gives that crunch to the soft and juicy wings. It’s super easy to make, and you will find it seriously addictive after one bite.

Sweet Sesame Chicken Wings Ingredients:

500 gm Chicken wings- tips removed, drumettes and flats separated

Easy Carrot Cake


Ah, I feel like I am the busiest person in the world. I have to wake up at 6 in the morning to cook and get my little guy ready. By the time, Sadik and Yaseen leave home for office and school, I have to get ready to work on my small business. Between my work and cooking, I spend every second I have to work on my latest novel as much as I could. I like to be busy. It’s very productive. By the way, sorry about the quality of the picture. I made this in the evening and

Chicken and Tofu with Basil

Chicken and tofu with basil 2

I’m surprised my kid likes tofu. It’s funny because tofu and I didn’t really have a love at first sight kind of story. It took me a while to get used to it. I think the reason I like tofu is because of its nutrient more than its taste. Anyway, I’m blessed that he is happy when I give him something healthy.

Now try this. Stir fried chicken and tofu with basil. It’s so easy to make and so yummy with some hot rice. I just made this for lunch and my kid absolutely loved it.

Dabeli Sandwich

Dabeli Sandwich 1

When I was first arrived in India, one of the dishes I fell in love with right away was Dabeli. It’s the delectable spiced potato sandwich in a perfectly crispy grilled bun. I have Dabeli very often, but street food here is not all that great when it comes to hygiene. A few weeks ago one of my best friends cooked me some dabeli and I realized how easy it is to cook this at home. She also gave me a package of instant spice mix to make this dish.

This sandwich is packed with delicious flavor and fresh

Banana Strawberry Jelato 6

I have been trying my best to stay healthy after the whole GM Diet thing. To be honest, I have already gained 1 kg back a day after I was off the diet. I am living in fear that it would be all for nothing if I gradually gained all what I’ve lost back soon. Although I eat better and much less than before, I still eat greasy deep fried food, but less. I also tried to stick to cardio to keep me fit.

A week ago, a friend on facebook asked me if I could share my banana
