        ya its ok but i dont like the indian section much because the butter chiken i have eaten in sweet and in her recipe there is no sugar, the tandoori chicken i eat is red in colour but hers is brown and grilled………. so i like her pizzas and pastas stuff but sorry no indian.

    Hi Ayesha,

    Love your recipes but had one question about the corn coup, what do you mean by sweet corn soup? I have sweet corn in a tin or creamed corn in a tin but could not find sweet corn soup.

    1. Ayesha Haq Post author

      normal corn…… corn in the tin is called sweet corn.
      Please try not to use creamed corn as it leaves a smell in the soup. Corn kernels is what you are looking for 🙂

    Can you post a recipe for chicken Manchurian (Pakistani style not Indian, apparently there’s a difference in the sauce)

    Salaam sister ayesha amazing recepies mashallah, got a quick question here in the uk chicken salt is not available would you know of any subsitute for it ?

    1. Ayesha Haq Post author

      Check the “spice” section of some well known grocery store chain…… You will definitely find it otherwise use some normal salt and Chinese salt “Ajinomoto” 🙂

    Ayesha I’m a 27 year old bachelor living in nYC who cooks for himself. I just discovered your blog and I am going to be make chicken almonds tonight. I have a few quick questions:

    1. Whenever I bake chicken breast for some reason it has this weird taste in the core. I have tried marinating even overnight in the hope that the marinade will seep through but for some reason the taste is still there. Same with them I sauté chicken breast chunks. I have tried using smaller sized chicken chunks, marinading overnight, using yoghurt but the problem remains. Am i overcooking the chicken? I am out of ideas at this point and have had to switch to chicken thigh because that seems to not taste like that.

    2. Do you have any chicken recipes that incorporate baking instead of frying?

    3. Can you share more thai and Chinese recipes?

    Thanks a lot!

      Hi Umair
      Good to know that you cook by yourself, culinary is a versatile branch of Arts. The more you get into it the more you discover.
      What kind of weird taste is it? Like uncooked weird taste? or dried out taste? I think you should try pounding the chicken with meat tenderizing hammer to make it thin and flat, then marinate it for 30 minutes only. I think marinating chicken overnight in yogurt itself is weird in taste and smell. 30 minutes is enough for chicken.
      Try using meat tenderizing hammer to make the chicken fillet thin and flat, I hope that will remove the taste and if it is smell then apply some vinegar before marinating in spices or sauces.
      I have some baked chicken recipes but I am working on baking and grilling part now a days so hopefully soon we will get some more exciting chicken recipes.
      Sure, I will upload some stir frys soon.

      If you have any other question(s), please feel free to ask.

    Hi Ayesha, I love cooking, especially Pakistani food! I am known as a good cook but it’s always great to learn from others, new combinations and ways of cooking the traditional Pakistani dishes. I hardly use recipes online for Pakistani food since I am extremely picky with my food. Any time I tried a recipe I never cared for it. I looked at the ingredients you use and the method in which you use them and I knew your recipes would be goo. I tried one this past weekend with a few tweaks of my own and it was awesome!! I will be referencing your blog for sure to get new ideas! Thanks so much for sharing them. Ramadan Mubarak to you!
