Nischay Kaul shared an authentic Kashmiri recipe for Rogan Josh with The Tezzy Files, and today he is back with yet another scrumptious treat from the Northern-most tip of India; Kabargah.
Kabargah is a traditional Kashmiri preparation of meat ribs. Ribs of young lamb or goat is cooked in a special blend of milk and spices, and then fried in ghee (clarified butter).
In the Middle East, weekends fall on Fridays and Saturdays. On Fridays, Muslims the world over offer the very special ‘jumma’ prayer, and this is traditionally followed by a lavish lunch with the family.

My family originates from Assam, the North Eastern state of India. You might have heard of Assam if you’re a serious tea drinker. Or perhaps you’ve heard of our one-horned rhinos or the world’s hottest chili, the ‘Bhoot Jolokia’. Assam also boasts of having Asia’s oldest oil refinery. Like every state of India, Assam is seeped in its own unique set of cultures and traditions.
Bhogali Bihu festivities are in the air. This is the festival of feasting and marks the end of the harvest season. Assamese households get busy preparing traditional Bihu treats and socializing with friends and family.
I am a total novice when it comes to Assamese cooking. Meet Sharmin Pasha. Sharmin created the very popular Assamese Cuisine & Recipes page on Facebook and has over forty-thousand fans worldwide. Needless to say, she is an authority in Assamese cooking. She also happens to be my sister-in-law (my hubby’s only sibling)!
Hello darlings! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and had your fill of all the festive delights.
At Christmas time, I usually feel quite home-sick. I miss a good old Kiwi Christmas and all its trimmings.
However, I got lucky this year! My good friend Hema and I go back a long time. She used to live in New Zealand too, and unlike me, has a major passion for cooking. When she heard of my yearning for a Kiwi Christmas, she made it her mission to recreate one right here in the UAE. How blessed am I with a friend like Hema!
And lucky you… Hema has agreed to share some of her prized recipes here. Read on!
