Taking you on a journey through India starting off in the North with Chicken Pasanda and travelling down to the South with lemon rice. Pasanda is eaten across Pakistan and Northern India with its origins from the Mughal Empire. “Badam” translates to almonds and “Pasanda” is derived from the Urdu word “Pasande” meaning “favorite”. This refers to the fine cuts of goat or lamb that were traditionally used to make it. Our recipe marinates chicken in spices and yogurt for a few hours before cooking with ground almonds to make a delicious creamy curry suitable for everyone! If you wanted to make it vegetarian, a great alternative to chicken is paneer cheese!


Lemon rice is one of the most popular South Indian recipes! It is very easy to make and is so delicious that it can serve as a meal on its own. Spices are tempered and nuts and lentils are cooked to create a crunchy texture. There is a delicate flavor of lemon bringing a slight tang to the rice.


We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
