Dedicated to Mum, we are happy to share delicious recipes that Mum loved to cook.  She has collected them over the years.

She loved baking, cooking, and experimenting with food, no matter rain or shine. And most amazing of all, she spread her love and charm by serving food to all those who came home.

The recipes share here are prepared by my lovely sisters and made attractive by my Jeeju, Mujahid Khaleel’s photography.
