Top 5s of 2014

I am not going to lie, I am weirdly excited about putting together these lists. Makes me feel all fancy like you know πŸ™‚

It also makes me happy when I take a look back at the year that was and see all that love in one place. Thank you so much for popping by here when you do and cooking from my lil ol blog. Your visits, messages and emails keep me going (true story).

Even though I know the Beef Biryani and Anday Aalu ka Salan are fan faves so to speak for these round ups I am sticking to recipes posted in 2014. Hope you enjoy the year that was as much as I did!

  1. Thanks for sharing your top recipes, I’ve pinned a few to try later. I’m working on a tops posts piece as well. It’s always nice to look back πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!

    • hahahah I just put on my skinny jeans and well … it’s not looking pretty right now so I am looking forward to your healthier offerings for the month!

  2. Itni mazay ki food pix share kerti ho aur hamaray emotions k sath khailti ho πŸ˜› Loved all these, I am sure all these things tasted awesome too. As a food lover, a pat on your shoulder πŸ˜› Happy New Year xx

    • great minds coffee and crumpets, great minds πŸ˜‰
      the chicken and rice is a copycat of the halal cart guys in nyc. It is (dare I say it out loud?) even more delicious than most biryanis. the harissa is killer spicy, I am going to try the ottolenghi recipe soon and if it works I will add it on there

  3. I love these roundups! It’s so interesting to see what posts are most popular amongst readers.
    It’s funny because I’ve made a few of your fan favorites, and have the others pinned πŸ™‚
    I NEED to make the chicken and rice soon! I loveeee the New York version, and it would be awesome to recreate it at home πŸ™‚

    • dude try it and tell me if its close – i havent had it in aeons! the harissa is mirchurious but i dab a little on and am obsessed

  4. hihi, let me list what I like about this post then: the recipes look great, the pictures are beautiful, your joy and passion are inspiring, I cannot wait to try some of these new ideas out (so how is that for a list ;->?)
