But what goes abroad is different from what’s consumed here. “For local markets, we have the usual mustard oil based pickles but we also have the super quality pickles made in soybean oil for export. Mustard oil, as you know, is
appreciated more in Punjab. Besides, soybean oil has a longer shelf life, too, and remains fresh for longer,” he says.

The pickles bought from Shikarpur also cost far less than anywhere else. An 800-gram bottle of mixed pickles will cost Rs50 and a kilogram jar of the export quality is for Rs200 only. “We have our own branches in Quetta and Sukkur but then our pickles reach across the country thanks to the buyers. We are aware that after buying from us they are selling the same jars at double or triple the costs but that’s up to them really. It’s business and the product is very good, you’ll agree,” he says. Shikarpur achaar available all over the country.    

The most popular of all the Shikarpur pickles variety is the mixed achaar comprising carrots, turnip, cauliflower, chickpeas, garlic, green chillies, lime and mango, says Irfan Ali, owner of Nawab Achaar, adding that the pickles may be oil-based or vinegar-based but what sets them apart from other pickles is really Shikarpur’s water. “We have sweet ground water and the vegetables grown here and cooked in the same water taste fantastic,” he explains. Shikarpur achaar available all over the country.

The spices for the pickles, she also prepares at home and she has kept pickles made from different vegetables in separate jars from where she takes out small portions to mix into a smaller jar with the other varieties to mix up a mouthwatering concoction.

Adam Liaw my list of five simple tips that will help make you a better cook

Adam Liaw my list of five simple tips that will help make you a better cook         ooking is one of the most useful skills a person can have, and even the smallest improvement in how you cook can go a very long way. Here’s my list of five simple things good cooks almost always do, and that you should be doing if you want to cook better.

Understand seasoning   The easiest way to improve your cooking is to understand seasoning. In western cooking seasoning is often thought of as adding salt (and sometimes pepper), and in Asian cooking it’s finding a pleasant balance of salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami flavours in a dish. Whatever your definition, just remember – don’t season to make food taste salty (or sweet, or sour etc), season to bring out the natural taste of your ingredients. Aside from salt, the most common seasonings I use (particularly in Asian cuisine) are soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, fish sauce and citrus juices.Adam Liaw my list of five simple tips that will help make you a better cook

Find the umami

If you were confused by the word “umami” in the previous paragraph, let me set you straight: umami is the secret to making food taste good. It’s a taste perceived by your taste buds, just like saltiness or sweetness, and it’s everywhere. In Italy it’s in tomatoes and parmesan, France loves its stocks and jus, Vietnam can’t get by without fish sauce, and in Japan take your pick from kombu, miso or any of a dozen other sources of umami. Umami-rich foods are central to just about every cuisine in the world, and just a touch of any of these kinds of ingredients can be a big boost to flavour.Do you know where the umami in your food is coming from? Whenever I cook I always make sure that the dish has at least one source of umami, whether that umami is contained within the ingredients (browned meats, Chinese cabbage, kombu, parmesan, anchovies) or added as seasonings.

Adam Liaw my list of five simple tips that will help make you a better cookSharpen your knife

If you ask me what the best kind of knife is to have in the kitchen, my answer will always be “a sharp one”. Watch a butcher at work and you’ll see them honing their blade every few seconds, but yet at home some of us haven’t even sharpened our knives once since they came out of the box. There’s no point buying fancy knives if you’re not going to maintain them. A whetstone is best, but if you don’t know how to use one just get one of those wheel sharpeners and give your knife a few runs through it every day or two. How you cut your ingredients creates texture in your food, and it’s very hard to make good cuts with a blunt knife.

Golden Chick set to enter Pakistan

Golden Chick set to enter Pakistan   

KARACHI: A central Texas-based US fried chicken chain is all set to enter Pakistan.

The Golden Chick Restaurant — Chicken Tender-Fried Chicken will initially open three restaurants this year and aims to raise the number to 30 joints in subsequent years.

The company signed a ‘letter of intent’ with Crescent Star Foods (Pvt) Limited (CSF), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Crescent Star Insurance Limited on Tuesday.

Talking to Dawn, Naim Anwar, the CEO of Crescent Insurance Ltd and its subsidiary, said the three restaurants with which the US chicken chain is to make first foray into the country would cost Rs300 million.

He added that a flagship restaurant would be set up in Lahore while two others would be set up in Karachi and a smaller town.

“Golden Chick would also introduce ‘roasted’ chicken (charga),” he said.

Market sources suggest that Pakistan ranks among the top 20 chicken consumers, with poultry consumption at 834,000 tonnes a year.Golden Chick set to enter Pakistan   

But with already more than 10 fast food franchise chains, is there space for a new entrant?Golden Chick set to enter Pakistan

A person indirectly related to the business presented current numbers which show KFC at the top with 37pc market share followed by McDonalds 26pc; Hardee’s 6pc; Fat Burger 3pc; Johnny Rockets 2pc and Burger King 2pc.

Yet most people associated with the fast food industry believe that the demand is not about to end. “With higher spending power of the middle and upper middle classes and the country’s demography that places youth of under 19 (prime consumers of fast food) to constitute an overwhelming 45pc of the entire population, the market share and margins of most players are assured,” he said.

He contended that of all the fast food outlets in the business, only KFC was concentrated in chicken while the remaining also catered to other items such as beef burgers.

He believed that even in chicken the Golden Chick would have an edge against other players that serve either framed-grilled chicken or fried chicken.

These recipes are favourites of mine all year round but also happen to be items that can fit in perfectly on an Iftar table. So go ahead, why not try something different for Iftar today?

Date and Nut Bites

(makes about 20)               Craving healthy Iftar, Try these Date and Nut Bites and Baked Chicken Wings     .

Recently I have struggled with fatigue and low energy levels and I always need to keep snacks handy to keep my energy up. These nutty, sweet bites of goodness are loaded with good-for-you ingredients and I often keep a few in a small container in my bag for hunger emergencies.

However, they can also make a great addition to Sehri to maintain your energy level throughout the day, and can definitely be a fun alternative to simplekhajoor at Iftar.

  4. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for upto two weeks.

Lentil and Potato Salad

A fresh, simple and healthy alternative to chana chaat, this salad is the easiest thing to make and one of my favourite things to eat. When you’re not fasting, this makes for a great lunch too, because, although it may look simple and sparse, it’s very filling. Remember that the lentils take a while to cook, so it’s best to soak them overnight.


½ cup green or black lentils, soaked in water overnight

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar

1½ teaspoons mustard

salt and pepper, to taste

  2. Peel the potatoes and cut into medium chunks. Cook them in boiling water until tender; drain and set aside to cool.
  3. To make the dressing: In a small mixing bowl, add the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Add the chopped onions and mix.
  4. When the lentils and potatoes have cooled, add them to a mixing bowl. Add the dressing and mix well. Add more salt if necessary.
  5. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Baked Chicken Wings

(serves 4 to 6)          Craving healthy Iftar, Try these Date and Nut Bites and Baked Chicken Wings                .

While I really do love Buffalo wings, my taste buds can’t tolerate spicy food. At restaurants I can barely finish one piece before my tongue starts to burn. By making them at home, I can control how hot the wings are by choosing a milder hot sauce.

Now Buffalo wings are traditionally fried but they turn out just as good if you bake them (so less guilt about eating your favorite appetizer!).

Baking also makes the cooking process shorter and simpler. For this recipe, you’d have to fry the wings in two or three batches, but if you bake them you can cook them all in one go. You can coat the wings with flour before baking to give them a crispy coating, or you can just bake them plain; they’re just as good either way. Because what really makes the wings special is the sauce you’ll slather over them after they’ve baked.


1 kg chicken wings

5-6 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons oil

½ cup flour (optional; see step 4)

1 tablespoon (15g) butter

¼ cup hot sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Line a baking tray with foil and brush with oil.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken wings, garlic, and oil. Mix well.
  4. If you are using flour, add the flour to large plastic bag. Add the chicken wings, seal the top of the bag, and shake well. (You can bake the wings without the flour coating as well. Just place the wings on the baking tray and proceed to the next step.)
  5. Shake the excess flour off the wings and place them on the baking tray.
  6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the wings are golden brown and cooked through.
  7. In a small saucepan, or in the microwave, melt the butter.
  8. Stir the hot sauce into the butter, and pour this mixture over the wings.
  9. Toss gently to coat, and serve.

Tip: This recipe is for Buffalo wings, but you can swap out the hot sauce for ¼ cup to ½ cup of barbecue sauce or peri-peri sauce as well.

Benefits of eating watermelon

 As its name suggests, watermelon is an excellent way to hydrate in the morning. What’s less well known is this juicy fruit is among the best sources of lycopene—a nutrient found in red fruits and vegetables that’s important for vision, heart health, and cancer prevention.

Best of all, watermelon contains just 40 calories per cup, landing it on lists of so-called negative-calorie foods that supposedly burn more calories during digestion than they add in. (Actually, it’s a bit more complicated than that, but that’s no reason to not eat watermelon!)

Heirloom. Black Diamond is a classic oblong watermelon with a black-green rind covering bright red, crisp, flavorful flesh. In the 1950s, Black Diamond was a very popular home garden variety. Fruits have gray-black seeds (perfect for seed spitting contests) and can grow quite large. In Arkansas, where it’s rumored to have been developed, local gardeners recommend this melon for greased watermelon contests: Simply grease the melon, place it into a child’s plastic swimming pool, and get ready for some fun as the kids chase it and try to grab it! Drought-resistant and prolific.                               . Benefits of eating watermelon.
Planting: Space 36 to 60 inches apart. (Read the stick tag that comes with the plant for specific spacing recommendations.)
Soil requirements: Provide well-drained, nutrient-rich soil that’s high in organic matter. Work at least 3 inches of organic matter into planting beds—more is better. Soil should be at least 70ºF at planting.
Water requirements: Keep soil consistently moist until fruits are about the size of a tennis ball. After that, water only when soil is dry. Avoid overhead watering to beat foliar diseases; use soaker hoses instead. About a week before fruits are ripe, water only if leaves wilt. Withholding water at this stage concentrates sugars in fruit.
Harvesting: Harvest when rind changes from bright to dull green, and the part that touches soil shifts from greenish white or straw yellow to rich, creamy yellow. Rap on the skin and listen for a low-pitched thud; tune your ear to the incorrect sound by rapping on a few fruits that aren’t ripe. Underripe fruits resonate with a high-pitched, tinny sound. Cut melons from the vine, leaving about an inch of stem attached to prevent rotting if they’ll sit before use. For more visit home page.more beautiful walpapers See It


Storage: Watermelons keeps 2 to 3 weeks unrefrigerated. Place in a cool area, such as a basement, to increase holding time. After cutting, refrigerate unused portions. If you have extra melon on hand, dice or cut the flesh into balls and freeze.
