Farhana's Traditional Chicken Biryani


Every Desi household has their own biryani recipe, but for us cooking amateurs, having a tried and tested video recipe on hand is really useful. Thanks, Mom, for filming this video with me. That's 1000 phone calls you just saved yourself from every time I attempt to cook biryani!

Enjoy this video that we put together of a classic chicken biryani - flavorful, aromatic, and with just the right amount of spice. Good luck in the kitchen and we hope you can try it out.

High Protein Diet Meal Prep Week 2


One of the biggest lessons I've learned on the road to eating healthy is that preparation is key. If you're working early in the morning or late into the evening, you often don't have the energy to prepare meals when you get a breather. You'd rather relax and kick up your feet for a few moments. Even if you manage to cook once or twice a week, having fresh, homemade, healthy meals every day for every meal is pretty difficult for your average American. Even being a SAHM (stay at home mom), I find it difficult to prepare healthy meals for all three of my family members for every meal.

Photo Shoot with Wawa-Wee Syrups!


I recently heard of an amazing product - Wawa-Wee Organic Fruit Syrups - which contains no artificial additives or high fructose corn syrup. As a health conscious mom, I'm always on the lookout for healthy alternatives to most processed items found in the supermarket and this one takes the cake. When I read the founder, Nadia Khan's, story of how she started Wawa-Wee it seemed surprisingly similar to what I was going through (and I'm sure many other moms as well!). Just like her son, my son refused to drink regular cow's milk after he stopped nursing. Believe me when I say that I tried just about every trick on planet earth to get him to drink milk. And now, if I add a little bit of Wawa-Wee strawberry syrup into his milk, he might even finish half a glass!

Video Recipe: Spicy Fish Fry and Tartar Sauce


Best of Wardah presents.......

Farhana's Kitchen! I'd like to share a new creative direction I'm taking, accompanied by my talented mom and the best chef I know, Farhana. My mom is always sharing her recipes with others, so I thought I'd share some on my blog. But, I knew that watching someone create a delicious meal is so different from reading and following a written recipe. Thus, an idea was born! If I were to film my mom as she cooked one of her oft-requested recipes, so many people could try them and she'd never have to share the recipe again. After much convincing, she grudgingly agreed and this is the result.
