Assalamo Alaikum,

Today I'm sharing about my dearest Nanna (maternal grandmother),that's what we call our grandma in Urdu. MashAllah she is a very strong lady ,have been through a lot !!but always have been patience and calm .She is has lost three kids while they were still very young and three  when they were older ,her heart is filled with sorrow for losing them but kept herself strong .MashAllah she gave birth to 14 kids!!She is a very loving lady ,she took care of me when i was baby and older also as my mom was working.I love her a lot and she loves me too!!

As I'm writing this blog she is not doing very well,Please remember her in your Dua's and prayers!!
Writing about my dear Nanna in this blog was a reason because i'm sharing her delicious  recipe which I love to make and devour.By the way did i mention she is an amazing cook too,i could share so many more qualities of her's but for today do try her recipe and enjoy  !!

Update:the day after i wrote this blog my dearest Nanna passed away and left us sad ;( i will  miss her alot and request you to pray for her maghfirah (forgiveness ) in sha Allah!!



Peas 1 cup or more

Rice Flour  2 cup

Atta Flour 1 cup

Ginger Garlic paste  2 tsp

Cumin seed  1 tsp

Red Chilli powder  1 tsp or to taste

Salt to taste


Oil for frying


Mix together all the dry ingredients

Add Peas to dry mixture .I'm using frozen Peas here

Add water to the mixture to create pancake like batter

Heat Oil in a frying pan enough to deep fry the pancakes,then add 1/2  cup of prepared batter

When you see pancake batter leaving edges ,then carefully with a big flat spatula flip it

Fry on both side until golden brown and crispy on the edges (yummy) keep in mind these pancake will break during flipping so dont worry;)

I love them as is hot and crunchy !!
