4 ingredients Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

How fast time keep proceeding its phases. It's amazing and sometime distressing to know that the year which we had labeled as 'new' is now going to be 'old'. 2014 is officially have become our past - The past, which we had planned as our future a year back and planted too many seeds of dreams in our mind for those 365 days and now.. at the end, we are coming to know that how far we've accomplished our ambition and resolution in that year.

Looking back at the whole year, it was lucky, happy and even harsh and deplorable, but above all else, I learnt eminently in 2014 that lead me to be a better person at the end. The world out there has so much to offer and to learn from, blogging is one of them and I'm pretty proud of being the part of it. Meeting bloggers over communities and social medias, and connecting with them was an immense experience. I learnt so much from them in respect to writing, photographing and cooking/baking. To talk further and straight over this blogging year, my recipes (Best of a year can be seen in my Blogiversary Post) got featured on various websites and blog, traffic increased, photography and writing level rose and now I can say I WAS a bad writer and photographer in past. Today, I'm not good but at least better then before and I see this as improvement which is needless to say is the best thing happen in 2014. In this past year, my Instagram account crazed up with 1000+ followers which got featured on Dawn.com and Siddysays blog. I've collected good amount of baking essentials, photography items and cookbooks in this year that broke all the records of my 20 years history and looking at all of them I'm certain that my love for this blog and making it special one is rising enthusiastically. I wasn't that fond of these things before starting blog and now they seem to the part of my living. In a nutshell, this was the huge year of blogging and food which lead me to gain a good kg of weight and now I'm missing 2013-of-myself.

Pomegranate Dark Chocolate Bark with Black Salt

November was hack busy month, tied up with lots of life events and bunch of birthdays to go through. Being a lonely baker at home, I had to bake cakes for everyone's big days and even for myself this time. In all these bake-ness what I enjoyed the most was my attempt at fondant cake which I bake for my nephew's first birthday with Mercedes-Benz theme. But at end, the misfortune take place. Everything went silk and smooth, what actually happened was that the cake slightly slipped away during transportation and actually it was in my hand so it is not fine to blame or scream at others but to Rikshaw-wala who keep bouncing the ride ever now and then. Needless to say I was devastated and I'm still furious on that case not for the cake to slipped away but on me that I didn't take the final shot of cake to share with you. Too bad! and my sister has the video which she is not gonna give me that soon. I'm begging her everyday, every minute, but this working mom has no time to just send me a video. Hope someday she get a mini heart for me and send the video my way, Ameen!

Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Spicy, Crispy and Oh so delicious Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe with Chatkhaar.

Spicy Crispy Homemade Chicken Nuggets Recipe

I recently had the chance to give a chutney, pickle and condiments product called Chatkaar to try and write the review post for them. Chatkhaar is a product of Naurus (Pvt) Ltd. and has recently introduced new flavors among their already existing varieties, from which I was given two of them, which where my choice, Falsa Chutney and Chicken Pickle. They both tastes so fresh and, well, REAL. I loved the flavors and contrast and most of all the Packaging, royal gold and black theme with vintage logo. The look of the bottle and jar was different and unique in their own way.

Recipe Round-up & Blogiversary Giveaway

 photo joo_zps353b3a8d.jpg

One years, twelve months, endless hours of cooking and baking and testing and photographing and editing and writing and finally clicking PUBLISH. I've enjoyed each and every minute of this tremendous year and I've learned so much over the past 12 months. When I look back at some of my early Recipe posts I realize how far I've come especially with my Food Photography. Unedited, low-lighted, and even captured in the kitchen near stove, Embarrassing? Yes, but that's how we learn and grow and be someone, right?  I'm thinking about going back and making some of those recipes again just so I can take some new and better photos. But only if my distracting schedule allow me to do so. Further-note: I already have few recipes hanging on draft to be edit and give them lives. I have been so crazy busy in all the events going on this November. Let's hope everything get back to normal again!

Easy Homemade Doughnuts (Baked)

Easy recipe for Doughnuts with Chocolate glaze. They are baked, not fried and categorized into easy baking and healthy eating. Yum!

Recipe for doughnuts

Chef in Frame marks its First Anniversary this month. Oh boy, time is running extremely fast and I can not believe a year have just gone by. I started this blog on Nov, 2013 for organizing and documenting the recipes I baked or cooked in spare time after graduation. I could never imagine to reach at that point where I'm today, never ever in my wild imagination. This one year of blogging ride has been huge blessing for me - in the form of amazing people abundance with extraordinary talent and love, in the form of learning to be a better cook, baker, photographer and to be a good writer, (which I'm not, sadly) in the form of adventure which I could never imagine myself to be in, its just happen as I search my passion and take it to the next level. However, what make this journey all the more enjoyable is that I can share my food love with loyal readers like you and you can get something to try and cheer with your love once.

Persian Rice Pudding

Saffron Rice Pudding. Easy and delicate Persian Dessert. Familiarly known as Sholeh Zard in Iran. 

Persian Saffron Rice Pudding

It has been so long since I wrote draft here, hit Publish button or even open my Blogger account. It was just because of the amount of stuffs swing here and there. Things were quite chaotic and unrest lately. Nevertheless, I'm back, leaving all my shaking thoughts behind and the biggest reason for this was MENA Cooking Club. Members knows that I was absent last month because of Eid Parties and Invitations. I really missed being here, cooking new cuisine from almost never-known region and sharing experiences. It's like a family fun. I didn't want to be lost this month in my procrastination. And I'm hoping to be a consistence blogger again. (finger crossed!) In another news, my Blog's First Anniversary post is also due. It has been the whole year of blogging, full one year. How exciting! I'm totally ready for the blast. You should too.

Usually cupcakes are categorized into dessert item because of being double in sweetness than muffins. While Muffins are consider to be everyday breakfast food and are healthy side of cake. Well, that's what I get to know from Internet folks. You Cupcake queens (or Muffins fairies) are welcome to correct me in the comments, anytime.

It's 14th August today, the important day in the history of our independent country, The Islamic Republic of Pakistan. It has turned 67 years old, mA.

I'm proud of being a Pakistani. Its cuisine and enviable natural beauty is unbeatable. I owed by all of them. I love the people here. No matter how many sectarian differences we have and how many political parties divide us in group, we, the people of Pakistan still manage to unite under one flag and one name, whether it is cricket finals or natural disasters. I just wish and pray that the future brings better and selfless leader to our beloved land.

Bahrain's Chicken Machbous

Bahraini Chicken and Spicy Rice or Machboos ala Dajaj. The Recipe of national dish of Bahrain.

Bahraini Chicken and Spicy Rice Recipe

Welcome after a big lazy Carnival like gap of holidays. It's been more than a week of ending Eid already and now I'm back with setting aside all my sickness and laziness, with a treat in hands.
For Eid I've shared Banana Cupcakes recipe with you which I also was planning to bake on Eid, but my whole plan gone out of the windows. Because Chand Raat went Unexpectedly busy that I didn't get chance to bake the cupcakes or even prepare for the frosting. I leave it all on eid day but on 1st Eid I slept the long hours of my life in the hope of getting freshen up to do anything in the kitchen but I wasn't found myself in the mood of working on that sweet aura of Eid. Laziness sucks, parties stopped me. I know Mom was noticing me lately and on second Eid she suggest me like this "Whats wrong? bake something your Phupho (Aunty) are coming." And you know what, that kind of Hit-on-my-back I wanted radically to get ride of chaos and do some baking. If you've been following me on Instagram you should know I did - yes, I did on that day when Phopho come and enjoyed Chocolate Cake bars with my handmade Tea. And I did on the next day too, the plain Muffins to take them for cousins, which they enjoyed and also shared on their social medias. Big feelings! That ways, Eid went good or I think pretty good in parties, sleeping and baking. Who need more else to do on holidays?

Banana Cupcakes with Yogurt Cream Frosting

Classic or say Basic Banana Cupcakes with glossy frosting over it, made with yogurt and fresh cream as core ingredients.


Following by my back days, lets say the week which had gone by, was just disturbing, tough and cluttered. Nothing was going as I wanted it to be. Hard enough to survive in illness while fasting. I've been the target of weakness since 1st of Ramadan, but Merci on Dr who gave some genius calcium/vitamins kinda tablets that worked great. But nothing I could enjoy more and now Wisdom Tooth have attacked me. Pain is at its peak, I can't talk, neither can bite the food nor I'm able to open the mouth for my own big bite. Sigh. I am almost living off on liquid stuffs. Thanks God that Tea is liquid. Well, It have become hard to keep my head above water. Seriously I don't need that kind of WISDOM right now. Hoping to be all this clutter end before Eid.

Guest post at Yummy Food: Chicken Kabab Burgers

Chicken Kabab Burgers

As I go through my days, I realize what things I have to do and I'm not doing it. I often question - Is it time who is running that fast or Is this me who is running from it? either way I still worry about how things will go in future? What will happen next? How it end up to be? - That's all in my mind and is reality of my present being. It's not that mean I'm lazy or something, I struggle to get things done anyhow. I wasn't that way before. I just have to focus on organizing stuffs that are messing on my head right now and I'm going to be Okay. better than Okay, I think. My To-Do is far way too long, I'm not gonna make you all drowsy over my recital. Back to the subject matter.

Red Chili and Tomato Pasta

Hot and spicy Chilli and Tomato Pasta | Chef in Frame

Unlike cooking, baking has some procedures to go through, meticulously. You can't throw some sugar here and flour there, instead you have to follow recipe's instructions as well measure all the ingredients accurately. Every aspect of baking involve possible defeat or glorious victory. This is the reason I'm more drown to baking, but playing with ingredients in cooking reserves its own fun.

And this pasta is also categorised into cooking fun, which I make last month.. Take the lots of photos.. Jot down the recipe, but time wasn't allowing me to share this recipe here as my blog design was in process (proudly done by me) and Potato Patties was on the line. But finally here it is the most scrumptious pasta I've ever had (or you'll ever taste) from home kitchen. It was hot and spicy combo of red chili and whole red tomatoes goodness.

Baked Puff Potato Patties Recipe | Chef in Frame

Time is running its own marathon without leaving for us a trace, along the way we are quite busy in our life-chores that we haven't got any time to realise the fact about where life has brought us in those few years. Tell you what, I wanna be a kid again, whose only satisfaction lied in buying toffee, biscuits, chips.. playing with kids and fighting with them until she didn't win.. I can bet that phase of time was kind of amazing. The only things I worried about was my pocket-money and exams. There's no such things now. Time has changed so much that even I can’t believe it myself.

Semolina and Gram flour dessert


I've made quite a few exiting days on this Blog, today is no less special and cheerful day as I've been invited to Ainy Cooks and write a guest post for her. It was a honor, right? to post for a fellow blogger whom I just met recently. I should tell you she warned me to write something OTHER THAN BAKING... It just give me a mini heart attack but I manage to send some sweetness her way, anyhow. ;)
I made Gram flour and Semolina halwa with my Mom's help (to be honest) as I'm not so good in that Desi stuffs. That recipe inspired me when we visit hyd. city and my Anty serve this halwa after lunch. She just made it some what delicious that I couldn't resist and ask her for recipe. After coming back to Khi, I made number of trails and errors with this recipe and finally ask my mom to give a hand on it... Voila! I'm just totally impress with these old women, who know who to manage to keep the taste buds and sweetness in traditional dishes.

Freebies that help you get Design your own Blogging stuffs

Freebies that help you get design your own blogging stuffs | Chef in Frame
Do you remember I told you I'll come up with some hand dandy freebies, I've found in the process of my shifting things (Wordpress to Blogger) in my previous Pakora's Recipe post? So, finally I'm here with my basket (bookmarklet) full of free Templates, Graphic sources, Fonts and the stuffs like this... These are what I did research for myself to get design a little with my blog, as Blogger always allow to play with HTML coding and do what your designated mind want to.
Actually I ended up collecting the handsome amount of all that stuffs, which not only help me in designing but also give me a little knowledge of  html. That's why I thought to pass this useful basket by you, so that you could also get the benefit out of it. After all, that's all goodies are free plus super attractive and catchy to eyes... Why not grab them all and design in your own way?

Cabbage filled Pakoras

Crispy Cabbage filled pakoras with hint of chili. Perfect for any-time-snack you crave for something savoury and flavorsome.

Traditional Pakoras filled with Cabbage - Recipe | Chef in frame

This is my First Recipe/Post on the Blogger Platform. If you've known me before, I was doing all recipe sharing stuffs on Wordpress.com since 4 months. There was kinda restriction there, as it was Free. I wanted to change the look of my blog, the width, the style, the layout etc.. which wasn't allowed to do on Wordpress.com, only you were allow to choose the fixed premade themes there (free & premium both) but you can't play with HTML codes and make some custom changes plus there's also the trammel on Java script codes. While if I wanted to do all this stuff on Wordpress.com, the only option there was to get a Host and install Wordpress software there from Wordpress.org which is free but you have to pay hosting on monthly or yearly basis.
Well, long story short I didn't want to take a Rupee/Penny out of my pocket to take risk initially. I choose Blogger the independent platform and transfer my all stuffs from Wordpress to Blogger, all by myself. Yayhh! Some of you may think I'm fool or something but I'm really proud of it. It was a great experience anyway. What I've learned, and found some new stuffs in that phase is another story which I'll soon come up with on next post. Until now you enjoy these Pakoras with tamarind chutni or ketchup or any of your favorite dip. Let me give you my trick -these hot pakoras are also well suit with evening tea. ;)

2 ingredients Strawberry Lassi

Strawberries and Yogurt Smoothie, a.k.a Strawberry Lassi. Perfect for coming summer to delight yourself with pleasant and healthy drink!


As the spring has almost been started and the drizzling days are passing by us. I thought to treat my blog with something refreshing and pleasant to present and pass it by my lovely readers. I come up with this quike-to-make Drink with huge goodness of Strawberry in Healthy creamy Yogurt..  believe me or not, there's nothing else in it. As being a fan of both I can say, it's what I was waiting so long for spring to start over. So that I could fulfill my desire for this cold and deary Drink. I'm already pretty much of those people who caught cold too quick plus weather is officially playing hide and seek at that moment on daily basis here in Karachi. So, I guess I have to wait a little more for summer to start over completely with hot golden sun over me, so I could have my favorite fruit smoothie everyday. Until now, I can only have it once in a week OR once in the two week... still not bad!!!

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Moist and Fudgey Chocolate Cake, topped with sinful but beautiful Whipped cream frosting.
This cake is a Easy one I ever tried and taste as best as my all cakes do. But it's all dependent on the quality of Cocoa powder used in it. The better and rich cocoa you use, the more intense and chocolatey your cake will taste. (it's a deal!) Always use strong good quality cocoa in every kind of baking, so that your goodies will get deep flavor of chocolate rather than powder-y one. Be sure in buying cocoa from market, pick trusted company like Cadbary, Hershey's etc. I've used Italiano in this recipe for the first time and it turned out pretty well for me. If you are having good experience with another cocoa powder, comment below. I'll love to give it a try in my baking.

Android Apps for You... Foodies!

Android Apps for Real Foodies | Chef in Frame

Are you Foodie and have a handsome Smartphone? What do you do with it? Call, Msg, Facebooking or tweeting? It's not bad to do so but let me tell you to use your phone Yummy-ly. Start over with my story.

As you all knows, having smartphones become a necessity of Life. There are so many thing you can do with your smartphones that you couldn't do with regular phones. When I was using my QWERTY phone Nokia c3, it was limited to some functions, like I wasn't able to use Viber, I wanted to have some useful apps that wasn't available at Nokia Store. Then I choose to go up and touch some Smartology. ;) I decided to get iPhone, but it was little expensive to my budget. I look over some Windows phone too, but didn't get nice feedback from fellow friends. Anyhow I settle for Android Smartphone and get my first blooming phone in hand, HTC Sensation. However it felt little annoying to use touch screen after using QWERTY for 2 years. But it's feel cool now, don't worry. After having the big phone in my hand I pop over to Play Store. Did research for 3 hrs downloaded few apps, deleted number of apps that I thought wasn't great for use and were consuming memory. It's been 5 months now and I have 7 to 8 very very useful apps that I want you to suggest. Get them and be a Real Smart Foodie.

Cabbage leaves Tacos with Potato Stuffing

Cabbage leaves Tacos, stuffed with stir-fry Potatoes & Cabbage. They are quick to make and healthy to eat. Perfect for easy & quick meal idea.

Cabbage leaves Tacos with Potato Stuffing

The crispness of Cabbage leaves goes well with this Potato Cabbage stuffing, with bit of caramelise onion and fiery of red chili in it. This tacos was perfectly perfect at the last minute I make it.
The brittle and slender leaf of raw cabbage is what make this tacos special. I didn't boiled it or fried it, they are fresh leaves of healthy green cabbage. It's not bad to eat raw cabbage, unless you wash and rinse it properly. Many of us make dressing and salad with shredded raw cabbage using fresh cream or mayonnaise (coleslaw), sometime without fat like vinegar, salt and a bit of olive oil. Which taste sweet, acrid and tender at the same time.
Using vegetable in your meal is healthy and beneficial. So why not try these Tacos in the dinner tonight?

How to Roast Peanuts at home?

Homemade Salted and Roasted Peanuts (2 methods) | Chef in Frame

Do you know? You can roast Peanuts easily at home, in no big time and techniques. Just few things you'll need and get the best quality Salted and Roasted Peanuts ready.
When first time I tried this, it went so perfect that I come to share the whole method with you. You'll love the Smell of Peanuts lingering in the home, the salted and crunchy peanuts in your mouth that's feel almost idyllic as a winter snack!
Well, before I start the whole method. I'm gonna give you two options for roasting peanuts. First one is to use oven for roasting and preheat initially before preparation.
Another method is applicable in case you don't have oven (like me) use Baking in Pot procedure to roast the peanuts. Just a little time difference and all the same steps to follow...
One more trick I used there is BUTTER, that make these peanuts insanely flavorsome. Most method I found from here and there, don't use butter or fat as peanut has already it. But believe me when you use butter (however, there's not too much) , peanuts will show their magic. Pinky Promise!

Tomato sauce Stuffed rolls

Beautiful fluffy yeast rolled buns stuffed with spicy homemade tomato sauce.. who wouldn't love it? Seriously I love tomato and love even more to use in cooking and baking.

I'm not really vegetarian, but a tomatorian. For me, Gravies without tomatoes is like a lentils. Now, you've understand my addiction to tomatoes.

White Chocolate mini Tarts

While chocolate Mini Tarts | Chef in Frame


How many of you love White Chocolate or the Mini desserts? I know many of you would be the fan of White chocolate here and the Mini dessert already are cute plus sweet. Not kidding, but telling you that I love, love, love so much the sweetness in the white chocolate than the dark one. Putting the white chocolate in the baking things is my favorite hobby. My family isn't the fan of it but I am the biggie one. That make complicated to use white chocolate solely for me. That's why I use it often.
Dark chocolate recipes are widely available here and there, and are too common. But today you're gonna get a sweet temptation of Mini White Chocolate Tart with strawberry jelly Heart. It is perfect for 'Dessert for two' or even for the whole bunch of Family. Lol!

Desi Winter Tea


Since the new year started, the coldness has increase to its peak in Karachi. It's feel like we're in Murree. Karachi is freezing and I can't feel my self when I go to outdoor walk.
Speaking of  Karachi weather, the bleak of the coldness here is increasing day by day. May Allah bless us. We human can't survive the very cold and very hot temp. Now the question is what to do in that situation. Start heater, wear gloves, sweeter, sock and whatever you found in your old winter bag. Whether you are at home or not cover yourself properly, this is what I do. And one important thing I'm going to share today, my mom's winter tea. When you sip it, your all shiver will decrease to almost good height. It is such warm treat for winter night. You'll feel that it is better than regular tea or coffee. Due to the winter bleak, often people felt ill. Some got cough, some flu and so and so.. this tea is very helpful for these all winter effect on us.
