    Salams bro, great reminders for us BBQ novices!

    Would love to see your Chicken wing Turkish style recipe on here.

    1. Jzk for the feedback. Its in the pipeline inshallah. For the moment it’s on my Instagram story highlights.

  2. Assalamu alaykum.
    Great info and tips!
    Some feedback: Is is possible to make all the clips and slides/screenshot into one YouTube video as well. Some of my friends found it difficult to follow the short videos on the website. Or a link to the Instagram highlights ? Thanks

    1. Ws,

      Jzk for your valuable feedback.
      Since Dec 17 our unique recipe content has been on Instagram highlights.
      Sadly, we exhausted the maximum number of Instagram story highlights, and thus everytime we posted a new recipe an older recipe vanished! 😠

      Furthermore, our followers found that searching for recipes on Instagram was very cumbersome and many others were pausing my story highlights to note down ingredients and steps.

      We decided to move to a bigger and better platform with full listed ingredients, step by step written as well as our distinctive video recipe content.

      We feel Haloodiefoodie.com is unique and groundbreaking. I’m yet to see a food website with this level of detail.

      And it’s totally free.
      It’s Team Haloodiefoodie’s Sadaqah Jariyah (perpetual charity) to the ummah!

      I hope to see your (and your friends) amazing cooks in our socials soon.
