Cinnamon Rolls!

After seeing this post I just could not rest in peace till trying it out. : ) However I wanted a low fat version plus I thought 5 cups of flour was too much for me and my husband who are supposed to be on a diet. It would make us overeat. Searching in my all time favorite recipe site I found this simple way of preparing Cinnamon Rolls. And what I liked best about this recipe was I could prepare the rolls the night before and refrigerate it overnight for rising. I just had to take it out in the morning and bake it! That saves a lot of time during the rush hour!

For those of you who want to try out this recipe and are not on a diet, adding more butter and sugar might result in an even more delicious rolls : ). I thought the rolls could be sweeter.

Anyway, after trying out these cinnamon rolls I want to try Nabeela's version even more now! And there is this Clone of a Cinnabon that looks quite appealing too. Maybe I can forget my diet for a while.

What I've been cooking of late...

Harira - Very delicious. Will google for more versions of this dish : )

Breakfast Potatoes

Fish Coconut Milk Curry - A Rich curry. A good break from the regulars.

Raisins Walnut Biscotti - Very crunchy! I don't think craisins are available here, I used raisins. I was hovering between this and Italian Almond Bars when I realized that the bars are going to be soft. Should try that out some day InshaAllah.

A Healthy Dinner

Our dinner was Matar Paneer, Alu Palak ( I did not have methi so therefore substituted the methi for palak.) and Rotis. Looks like quite a simple fare but the matar paneer was delicious! Due thanks to Nandita of Saffron Trail for sharing a low fat, healthy and delicious dish! And ofcourse thanks to Nabeela too for sharing her version of Alu Methi. : )

Sab Al Qafshah - Pour by spoon : )

Desperately searching for breakfast recipes, I came across this extremely yummy looking dish! We don't have date molasses here, so we used Honey instead. Maybe date syrup will do too...

I'd suggest adding one eighth to a quarter teaspoon more salt as I thought it was quite bland otherwise.

Very easy to make!

Tamatar Aloo - Potatoes in Tomato gravy

Who doesn't love potatoes??? Give it to me in any form ( except raw ofcourse : ) ) and I will relish every bit of it.

This potato curry is so delicious that this is all I am going to make with potatoes for some time. The fennel gives this curry a really good flavor. This is for the first time that I would have used a lot of fennel powder, I should try this out on other dishes too!
