Blogging Marathon# 49: Week 4/ Day 3 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes Dish: Afghani Carrot Halwa I’m ending this month’s marathon on a sweet note with this rich and decadent ‘Carrot Halwa’ that I bookmarked from ‘The New Middle Eastern Vegetarian’ cookbook by Sally Butcher. Halwa is very similar to our very own Carrot Halwa with a few additional ingredients like ricotta cheese and powdered milk.
Blogging Marathon# 49: Week 4/ Day 2 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes Dish: Afghani Bolani For day 2 of this week’s marathon, I made a stuffed flatbread from Afghanistan called Bolani. This recipe has been on my to-make list ever since I saw a bunch of my fellow bloggers make it for the A-Z International marathon.
Borani Banjan is a layered eggplant dish that is topped off with a creamy garlic yogurt sauce. Eggplants are grilled or broiled until tender and then layered with fresh tomato slices and doused with tomato sauce, then baked till hot and bubbly. Just before serving a creamy garlic yogurt sauce is poured on top.
Blogging Marathon# 47: Week 4/ Day 3 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes from A-Z International Marathon Dishes: Afghani Sheer Payra I’m going to end this month’s blogging marathon on a sweet note. I have made this delicious milk fudge from Afghanistan 3 times in the past 1 month. It is that simple to make and quite a crowd pleaser. My husband really liked the fudge because it has a really nice flavor from ground cardamom and rose water.
