Here goes lots of thanks to Sana for nominating me for this challenge. Hey guys Sana has a very irreplaceable writing skill especially with part of interpreting Quotes and her own daily chaos which she describes in comic way. But the best part of Sana is she owns a Cooking blog too and Yes she posts such a yummy and easy to cook food there. I’m totally a fan of her foods. I have myself tried so many dishes from her blog. Do check out both of her blogs.
OK now the condition of this challenge is that I have to post only one of my favorite dish 😦 But please excuse me I’m gonna do cheating here. I will be choosing two dishes 😉
Even though I’m a muslim but not too crazy for non veg. My tummy says yumm yumm when it gets Paneerrr (cheese). So both my dishes contain paneer but lil bit different in taste. First is from Sana’s blog – “Paneer butter masala” (she had posted Chicken butter masala but I replaced chicken with paneer) 🙂 It’s a common dish in Indian restaurant but believe me it never tasted as good as Sana’s style. The sour taste of tomato, the saltiness of butter and smoothness of cream makes it so delicious. And offcourse kasuri methi (dried fenugreek) leaves for garnishing purpose actually fills your home with the great aroma. I don’t have its original pic as I hardly take photo of anything. Sorry Sana. Please magange with your pic 😉
Now second in list is Shahi Paneer. Oh man you get amazing shahi paneer in Delhi (India). I miss that taste in Mumbai where I’m residing right now. The way paneer melts in your mouth…oh I cant even express its feeling. I actually don’t know what all ingredients are put by the Delhittes in this marvelous dish. But my problem has really been solved by Everest Shahi Paneer masala 🙂 A ready masala for this dish. So I just have to put up some onion and tomato rest is done by this masala. Huu Thanks to Everest company. I just love to have Shahi Paneer with Butter nan (Nan- A type of chapati). I know too much of fat at a time. But who cares when Shahi Paneer is there 😉
Actaully both the dish have common ingredients but yet different in taste. Subhan Allah. Just see the blessing of Allah. How he changes whole taste, color, etc just because of few variations. Alhumdulillah. So guys anyone visting Delhi…do try Shahi paneer specially in Dhabas (local hotel) and anyone wanna aroma in there kitchen as well as praises from your family members then copy Sana dish from this link https://fromworldskitchen.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/butter-chicken-quick-n-easy-recipe/

Allah has created everybody with different style, nature, color ect. Also Almighty has gifted us the ability to control our emotions, anger, nafs. Offcourse its up to us that how we handle these gifted assets. To be frank I’m very sensitive kind of person. If anyone criticizes me even on a very small topic/matter I become upset. Yeah offcourse I don’t show it to the person but it keeps on revolving in my head. I think not only I have this issue many of you would have faced it in one or the other time in your life.
I wanted to overcome this issue but I had no clue how? I wanted to do chillax on any disparage and wanted to move on. Alhumdulillah Allah answered my prayers and I realized it’s the only teachings of Allah which can solve it. I started visualizing each of my task as per permissibility given by Allah. Before getting into any argument I started thinking Is it worth doing it? Will Allah be happy or will punish me. The disparage which I’m getting from the other party is it worth taking up and wasting my precious time and brain behind it.
Ok lemme explain you with an example: It happens on some days that cooking does not come out perfect. So its obivious to get complaint from hubby, children, in laws and ect ect. They will forget that one day back you had prepared a delicious meal but will remember forever that you had done whats wrong on which day. Human nature 😦 I know it’s a small issue but things like this also used to disturb me. How, what, when things went wrong? Why did they say this…that to me? Fully frustrated 😦 finally not getting any answer. But now when I get such complaint I start asking myself. Will Allah gonna judge me on my cooking standards?. Will he ask why did you prepare bad food? Offcourse not. But ya if I indulge in argument and start cold war from my family members then yes he may judge me. Allah loves us when we forgive people not when we get indulge in unnecessary talks. He loves those who prepare his dhikr nicely not food, whom perform sunnat nicely not bad arguments.
Subhan Allah it started to work. I started controlling my nafs, my anger by asking these simple questions . Ya I have not become perfectionist yet. Criticizing still affects me but not as badly as it used to be. In this whole process I have learnt that evey complaint is not bad as it brings you more closer to Allah and takes you away from Shaitaan.
I end this post with this dua that “May Allah gives us the patience and understanding of every test and situations”.
