My hobby and passion making Asian traditional family recipes for masala ( spice mix ) blend .all recipe is my own recipe very tasty and its easy to cook some of my recipes are from my mum its too tasty .my kids and my husband like my food. you should try at home.

Cooking has always been my passion .when I was a little girl I love to cook, spending hours in the kitchen with my mother, making a mess but delicious traditional Pakistani recipes, using authentic, seasonal, fresh ingredients and preparing everything from scratch. Today I am still that same girl playing in the kitchen;

I like to experiment with different tastes and textures, tingling from the Asian culinary culture to create my own personal recipes. However, I try to remain faithful to the authentic traditions, flavors, and ingredients.

Getting dinner on the table is easy with these main dishes. Recipes from our test kitchens professionals are designed to inspire -whether you are entertaining our cooking at home.
