    1. Hi Hannah,

      Okay sure no worries, thanks for that. I’ll do that but for now you can put 1/2 Teaspoon of spices you’re using. I don’t tend to put quantity because that depends on the individual . But thanks for letting me know πŸ™‚ x

      Hi zee i enjoy your recipes and am impressed on how to give them out and they turn out parfectly thank you so much, pls include drinks, cocktail, mocktail etc in the menu. I visit ur instagram page and i saw some drink which i google for and found something like tequila, vodka, blue curacao but they are all alcoholic syrups my question here is, is thier any alcohol free syrup like that?

      1. Hi Zainab thank you! Yes I only use non alcoholic as I don’t drink. But obviously you make the drinks without the Tequila & Vodka.

    I enjoy using your recipes especially the chicken nibblets. Please I want a recipe for chicken gravy and others I can enjoy for Ramadan

    1. Hi! Thank you I appreciate that and I’m glad you like the recipes! Okay will send you a recipe for chicken gravy soon and will be uploading recipes for Ramadan this month InshaAllah so keep following. πŸ™‚ thank you!!!!

    2. Hi Mimie here’s the recipe for the chicken gravy you asked for. Hope you enjoy it.

      3/4 Cup Double or Single Cream
      1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper or Chilli Flakes
      1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter
      1/2 All-Purpose Flour
      1 Cup Chicken Stock
      A little bit of salt to taste
      1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

      Firstly Place a saucepan on the medium low heat and melt the butter. Then whisk in the flour until well combined ( keep whisking slowly for about 10 to 12 minutes).
      Gradually whisk in the chicken stock. ( I usually make the stock myself. You can do this by boiling the chicken with salt, thyme, black pepper, some chilli flakes or scotch bonnet chillies and an onion; very simple. Then you can freeze it). Once you’ve added the stock, lower the heat so it’s very low. Let it simmer and cook and stir until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. After 10-15mins stir in the cream and season with salt, white pepper, and cayenne pepper.

      Hope you enjoy it will be making recipe ideas for Ramadan soon so please do keep following. Thank you xx

    Hello chef zee, really like your drive and was shocked wen i saw all this but that’s going off topic! Lol 1 question, do you believe food is the way to a man’s heart?😁

  5. Mimie says:

    Please I need a recipe for mashed potatoes. Have been craving it and want to have it for Iftar. Thank you

    1. Hi Mimie, place the potatoes in a pan and add a little salt. Then let it cook until very soft. Once it’s done, take it off the heat and drain. Add a few tablespoons of butter, then drizzle some evaporated milk over it. This makes it really nice and creamy. You can also add some cheese if you want it a bit cheesy. Then mash everything together. Hope you enjoy it! x

  6. Mimie says:

    Sorry to nag but please new recipes for chicken. I have tried all the ones you have and was too good. And please measurement for one pan of cake.

    1. Hahaha lol wow thanks Mimie sorry I am so busy that’s why I don’t really get to reply on time. Just keep following the blog I will be uploading more recipes soon. You just need about an 8inch cake tin. Here’s a chicken recipe for now.

      Recipe for Roast Chicken!

      Small Bunch Fresh Thyme (or 1/2 tablespoon dried thyme)
      1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic (3 cloves garlic grated
      1 Tablespoon Minced Ginger (or 1/2 thumb sized ginger grated)
      Salt (to your taste)
      1 Tsp Black Pepper
      1 Tsp Mustard
      1 Lemon
      Small Bunch Fresh Coriander(or 1/2 tsp dried coriander)
      Small Bunch Parsley (1/2 tsp dried parsley)
      2 Knorr Cubes (or to your taste)
      1 or 2 Chillies (optional)
      2 Spring Onions Chopped
      1 Onion Chopped
      Olive Oil


      Firstly wash the chicken thoroughly with half the lemon, add salt, knorr cubes, black pepper and squeeze the other half of the lemon over it then set aside. In a food processor, combine all the fresh herbs and the rest of the ingredients with a little bit of olive oil and blitz. Then with a pastry brush or using your hands, apply it all over the chicken. Use the rest to stuff the chicken. Pre-heat the oven, once heated, set at about 220C or 200. Cover the oven tray with foil before placing the chicken on it. Cook for about 40 minutes. To check whether it’s done, stick a fork or a skewer into the fattest part of the chicken e.g. The thigh! If the juices run clear or if it’s no longer pink, it’s done! Enjoy!!!!

      P.S. You don’t have to whole a whole chicken, you can use chicken pieces or other meats even e.g. Lamb Chops e.t.c. I prefer using fresh herbs because it always tastes better and fresher but you can also use dried like mentioned. If using dried, no need for the food processor. Just add everything into a bowl with a little bit of olive oil and apply to the chicken.
