  1. Fantastic new website and this is a great recipe, just 1 thing you clearly mention to ‘add tin of pureed tomato’ in video instructions but it’s missing from list of Ingredients!

    1. Thanks for spotting this mistake! I’ve now added the ingredient.

    Mashallah I’ve now tried 3 recipes and all have been finger licking good. This was the first one I tried and my husband was very impressed with my cooking considering I was fasting and followed a new recipe. For someone like me, who isn’t a confident cook, after cooking several of your recipes I feel like I’m a good cook (thanks to you!) May Allah reward you for sharing these receipts and taking your time out to show us step by step.

    1. Amazing feedback.
      I hope Sara is proud of your achievements.
      The purpose of is to make every home cook epic at home by providing you with unique and groundbreaking recipe content.
      The only request we ask for is to make dua for Team HF, especially in these blessed days.

    Easy to follow recipe. Tastes amazing. Loved by all the family. I adjusted the chilli powder to a bit less(personal taste). Will definitely make it again! Thankyou from a basic desi cook!

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I look forward to seeing your next cook.

  5. I’ve used this recipie on a number of occasions for family and results are amazing.. i am cooking for approx 30 people on Thursday, would you be able to advise on quantities?

    1. Simply multiple the recipe amounts! Add 75% pureed tomato and adjust if required.
