    1. khojicook says:

      Thanks! A book is in the works! Will let u knw when i print!

  3. rossy says:

    Its really nice, but all those who are making efforts for posting recipies also try to put recipies which can be cooked on a MICROWAVE as well. Thanks

  4. Abdul says:

    You talking to a khoji cook, Rossy…we use Sufuriyas and karais for our cooking, never a microwave! We use microwaves solely for warming or heating up the already cooked food. I am sure there are microwave cooking cookbooks out there, but this ain’t the place for it.
    : )

    Congratulations on a wonderful accomplishment to preserve not just our cuisine but our way of life, because you are what you eat, something very important to do as we are dispersed all over the world and do not have the luxury of house help to do the kap-kut. In some cases even the authentic ingredients are missing. Given that and given the fact that our ladies got on the job market even before our menfolk, short-cuts were innovated. A cookbook such as this has the noble objective of preserving our traditional recipes but given the above contexts it would not be sacrilegious (sacreligious?!!) to also give short cuts with the appropriate recipe. One of the short cuts our ladies devised was to serve the biryani separate as rice and a thick curry, instead of layering the two. I think that was unnecessary. I don’t think anyone does the dhoongar anymore. Some dishes I am sure could be cooked in the micro – ondhwo, dhokra – and I think a modern-day cookbook should be willing to accommodate that. We used to cook on the sigiri and some of our community in UK do so still, swearing that the food tastes different. I live back in Uganda again and my cooking is done on the sigiri and I think the food does taste different – better – that way, but in the West micro it often has to be. A cookbook should also go into the origins of our foods and how we East African Asians incorporated African ingredients in our cooking and how Africans modified their cooking because of us. I haven’t seen the whole book so some of my comments may be irrelevant.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment on the website. I am glad that you do see the point of the website, I am trying to keep our traditions from east africa alive, just as many other cooks are too.. I am targeting the new cooks who find traditional recipes intimidating and time consuming. I hope in the future to provide context to the origin of our foods, but honestly I have no idea where to begin the research since I left Africa in my teens. We are not yet a book, but inshallah in the future..

  11. Pratap D. Madhvani says:

    Excellent collections. Must try them …

  12. Zinat Bhatia says:

    Good recipes , let us have some more, e.g. sheekh kebab, other meat and fish dishes – gajjar halwa exactly like the way pakistani’s make them – have tried it at almost every place but no good – had tasted it in
    Calgary at a Pakistani’s restaurant and it was delecious.

  13. Zinat Bhatia says:

    Did you post the optional way to makes bhinda saag without frying?

    Thanks again

    1. khojicook says:

      Thanks for stopping by. Havent posted that recipe, but basically you stirfy the bhinda before hand in a little oil till its cooked and its not sticky at all. You boil the potato The tomato mix stays the same.
