Sheba Fehmi - Welcome to my site and this is my kitchen. While growing up cooking was the last thing on my mind. Mom did all the cooking and she is very good at it, so why bother. However, after marriage it was a different story. Started cooking, of course there were some disasters but had a lot of support from my husband, friends and family.
I remember, we invited a family friend for dinner and I wanted to keep it simple so decided to cook fried rice. Not sure what I added to the pot, the rice came out brown. We joked about it and enjoyed it - come on, it tasted pretty good.
I enjoy watching cooking shows. I would say some ideas come from those show. My goal is to keep cooking simple, but retain the authentic taste. Well I am from Lucknow and my husband is a Dilliwala (from Delhi). You can very well get the picture. Both places are known for their food and the debate is still on in US, where I live now, as to the Kababs (shh kababs from lucknow are better). For people not familiar with Lucknow and Delhi, the later is the capital of India and the former is the state capital of Uttar Pradesh.
After watching my video " how to make dough using food processor " several of my friends sent in a thank you note. They were still kneading it by hand. My favorite is the " Pressure Cooker". A subscriber asked me " how many pressure cookers do you have" ? My answer too many. Different sizes, different makes. You can contact me with comments and recipe request at:
