In My Kitchen – July 2015

Welcome to my kitchen once again…

I thought I’d miss IMK July post as I have not been out for sometime now, except when passing by a grocery store on my way home from work to buy something to cook for Iftar (time to break the fast). I tried my best to capture photos of our meals during Iftar, but I did not get good results.

Anyways, I am happy that I get to welcome you once again in my kitchen…

In my kitchen…

…is a jar of Durian jam. This jam is staple during Ramadan in our home. I am not a Durian fruit eater, but I love this jam a lot.

I am a lover of tea and I really want to fill my pantry with all flavors I could find, but I don’t think I’d be able to live a day with tea alone. Well, I drink about 7 cups of tea a day… but not this Ramadan.

In my kitchen…

…is a TWG Silver Moon Tea (a gift from my cousin).

This is a blend of green teas accented with a grand berry and vanilla bouquet, with a hint of spice. The smell alone is just beyond amazing.

Few days ago, I was invited for an Iftar by an amazing friend. She prepare a feast for us and everything Β is superb! Unfortunately, I haven’t tried the homemade ice cream as we were picked up from her home Β a little earlier. I super duper enjoyed the food, the conversation and everything that night. It was one of the most amazing nights. She is awesome that I got to take home these:

Almond Cigars –

I think this is Apricot Tart –

Chorba with (I think) Semolina Bread – I am saddened by the incident that the soup spilled inside the car. 😦

Bourek – I am just crazy about these.

And the most famous my Brioche Crown πŸ˜›

The most beautiful crown. πŸ˜€ And I just love those sugar bits on top.

And while we were chatting, I have mentioned that I love Harissa. She gladly took this from her pantry and gave it to me – yay for me. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

There’s still the dish called Chicken Tajine (I think), but it’s all gone – I haven’t taken a photo. I devoured them like a beast for Suhoor (early morning meal for one who is observing Ramadan).

I hope you enjoyed peeking. Thanks toΒ Celia @ Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, the mind behind In My Kitchen.Β Please join us before 10th of July and make sure to link it back to Celia.

Have a fabulous day to everyone. πŸ˜‰

  1. What cure highlights today! You had me at the Durian preserved as think I would be game to try after smelling the real thing in Malaysia! Your brioche looks great! I can almost smell it from here! Thank you for this month’s kitchen views too!

    1. Have you tried eating the fruit? I love the jam more than the fruit. Thanks a lot for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. πŸ™‚ xx

  2. I can almost taste the beautiful flavour and sense the silky texture of that brioche. it is stunning! How perfectly put together are those little items your friend made. She must be very patient indeed. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Some delicious looking foods you have shown us, Jhuls. That Durian jam would be amazing. I have only eaten Durian once, but I really liked it. Thank you for sharing some things from your kitchen.

    1. I am not fond of eating the fruit. It’s weird, but I don’t like it much. I can eat the jam everyday, I don’t mind. πŸ˜€ Thanks for stopping by and sorry for the late reply. Have a great weekend. πŸ™‚

  4. As always thanks for the peep into your kitchen! Bourek looks like one of those food I could never tire of eating. In fact, I want to stuff my face with it right now! Ramadan is almost over and you can drink gallons of tea again.

    1. Exactly. I could eat Bourek all day, everyday. Thanks a lot for the visit, Maggie.

      Btw, I am too busy that I forgot if I you have linked back to me about the French Toast?
