Hey! It is Chachi’s Kitchen first birthday today

I can’t believe it; I have really enjoyed blogging this year. I have met so many nice people, who I feel are my friends. Thank you guys for being so encouraging in your comments, I really appreciated it. Even if you are not a blogger, please comment, this is what keeps a blogger going, know that they have an audience, in short I guess we are kind of exhibitionists or a AWs.

Going back to my blog, many of the traditional recipes are my mothers. My ma is Chachi to lots of people, that’s what she is known as. She is a brilliant cook, and I have learnt and am learning from her all the time. The other contributors to this blog are my siblings/cousins and siblings/cousins in law. This is a true family blog, containing old traditional recipes along with new fusion recipes. We are Ismailis raised in East Africa, now living in the UK, Canada and Australia. And through marriage we have acquired Pakistani, English, Irish, Italian, Canadian influence.

I wanted our 1st year birthday to coincide with entering to a blog event; this is my entry for Jai and Bees Click event

I also wanted to use another blogger’s recipe, I got this one from Lakshmi of Veggie Cuisine, more or less followed as is, who in turn got it from another blogger; Hooked on Heat. I am not going to retype the recipe, as you can get it at source(s).
