Chicken Changezi | An old Delhi Recipe

 

Chicken Changezi is an extremely popular dish in Delhi, that has been served for generations. It has a notoriously suspicious looking crimson color, due to the cooking down of the tomato gravy in ghee. The name ‘Changezi’  is due to the fact the the dish originated during the times of the fearsome Mongolian warrior and conquerer, Genghis(Changez)Khan. It was however, not made for him as been widely misconstrued.

In actuality, Genghis Khan never invaded Delhi. He in fact only went as far as the Indus and then turned back. The dish however must have been a hit, since it has prospered for so long, but in all likeliness the warrior himself would not have fancied the dish, with its typical Indian spices and richness, quite foreign to the Mongolian seasonal diet consisting mostly of meat and dairy, influenced by both China and Russia.

Chicken Changezi is rich, creamy, and quite delicious, served with flatbreads like Naan or Tandoori Roti. It is not so spicy, due to the addition of Kaju (Cashew) paste, milk and cream. Here is the recipe for this tangy, creamy and rich Restaurant style dish. Check out the Video below to see how to make it!!!

Mee Goreng Ayam | Malaysian Fried Noodles with Chicken

Mee Goreng Ayam | Malaysian Fried Noodles with Chicken.

Simple and Tasty street food or hawkers food that can be made in your kitchen TODAY! Very basic ingredients in an Asian kitchen. Translated, ‘Mee’ is noodles and ‘Goreng’ means fry. The stir fried noodles with chicken is extremely quick and easy to make as you can see when you watch my video.

Mee Goreng is popular in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. I love how Malaysian cooking balances sweet, spice and sour in so many dishes, so perfectly. I started to learn Malaysian Cooking when I first moved to Singapore over fifteen years ago. I had a few good Singaporean and Malaysian neighbours back then who introduced me to so many things. We would shop, market and cook together. It was so much fun. I have lost contact with them over the years and often hope they will find me through my blog someday. I wonder if they are still cooking the Middle eastern and Indian dishes that I taught them as I am still whipping up a lot of what I learned from them.

Shana’s Chicken Lasagne with Homemade Pasta Sauce

Chicken Lasagne – Care to Indulge? 

Lasagne or Lasagna? The famous Italian dish of meat sauce and layered sheets of pasta, is loved by people all over the word. However, did you know, that you may be referring to it wrongly? My friends in the Middle East , India , and even in South East Asia, we often refer to the dish as ‘ Lasagna ‘.

However, this is actually incorrect because , Lasagna is the singular form and refers to a sheet of the pasta. ‘ Lasagne ‘ refers to the dish which uses multiple sheets of pasta. Truth is though, that the word Lasagna is used much more, but as a devoted foodie, it is my duty to let my readers know of the difference.

Chicken Lasagne is popular with those who do not eat beef, which is more commonly used.  I received many requests to post a chicken-pasta dish. So here is my version of Chicken Lasagne, and I assure you it is extremely delicious and everyone will be impressed if you make it for them. Quite indulgent, with butter, cream and cheese. Not the every day meal, that’s for sure. Creamy, warm and simply Yummy. Yay! Let’s go. Check out the video below.

Brik | Delicious Tunisian Pastry

Brik (Breek)

Brik | Delicious Tunisian Pastry

No No, we are not into eating brick!  Brik (بريك) is a famous Tunisian  deep fried pastry. This is absolutely scrumptious, if you’ve never tried it before. This version (one of the more popular ones), has a filling of whole egg , seasoned tuna, onion, parsley and capers. Some versions add Harissa to spice things up, but here I  use the Tunisian spice mix ‘Tabil’.  You might compare it with a samosa, but the filling is entirely different … imagine cutting into the pastry and getting delicious oozilicious egg!! My kids are bonkers for oozy egg yolk, so they adore Brik!

brik recipe tunisia

Brik pastry is known as Malsouka ملسوقة  or Warka.Brik pastry is a very thin pastry that comes wrapped in cellophane. The thin, round sheets are made by slapping a sticky dough onto a hot non-stick surface in overlapping circles  and cooked for a short amount of time.

The tuna filling may be substituted with chicken, or minced meat. I will also be adding the recipe for ‘Swebaa Brik’ – Brik Fingers, soon which is finger sized spring roll shaped pastry with minced meat, egg and cheese filling. Thanks again to my friend Nadege for helping me with My Tunisian recipes.
Enjoy the Video.
