Asalam alaykum peace be upon you all !!! , it was such a cold morning today , while I was getting everyone out the door I was allhumdillah smiling , as I was  walking along with my children the coldness touched my skin, I shivered for a second , but was excited to walk to work , yes I volunteer in a local nursery helping by  welcoming the parents and children for health clinic 🙂… I love it!! , just a great feeling of doing something different allhumdillah .. when I was back home with my little boy .. off in the kitchen for a simple yet fulfilling recipie for a cold winter day ..milk curry is a simple and a healthy curry .. containing simple ingredients : half of chopped onion, 1 cup of milk , 1 teaspoon of haldi, I half spoon of salt , a tea spoon of chillie  chopped, at the end coriander on top .. I chopped almonds for a extra fibre..  having roti covered with milk curry is a bliss.. this is a great dish for children who will love it as much as the adults 🙂 if you have all stuff in the pantry well done !! This meal costs  around 1 pound and 50 pence for two adults and three children xx budget Monday done 🤗…


Weekly budget 

  1. Asalam alaykum everyone!,  well it has been a quite long time but I am excited about doing a grocery budget challenge all week ahead !! On Sunday I experimented and shopped at Lidl, first time , with help from an app called supermarket I was able to find the cheapest products at the store. This week I will be using only ingredients that I have brought on Sunday and products already on my shelf such as rice, flour and lentils. This week I  will try to cook some healthy desi and English food with it.. well this was my shopping for this week ..two loaf of bread( sandwiches for school lunches ), 2kg white potatoes, plain flour, salad tomatoes, frozen veg, can of beans , chickpeas, peas, peri sauce , ketchup , fresh green beans , bananas fresh apples,  grapes, and peaches . Carrots, 4 pint milk, two natural yogurts, butter, slices of cheese and block of cheese , can of tuna hidden away is a sparkling fruit crush and fresh juice .. all for under 25 pounds !! Wow.. I added six chicken legs ÂŁ2.50 for the Sunday meal that was made yesterday. Yesterday I pre cut and pre prepared the ingredients, for it becomes easier to just chuck everything in the pan 😊.. well   While I was chopping away with the ingredients I had a few  old carrots  in the fridge which I  used up by the help of my mini chopping  machine 🙂  I added 6 large carrots, used only three cup of milk , and two cups of water, while it boiled away I poured in the carrots and stirred it for few minutes.. I only put four heaps of suger and quarter of leftover butter from the fridge. Right in the end when all the milk was nearly dried out I poured in the condense milk to give a nice texture to the carrot halwa.. almonds were used from my pantry for a extra taste.. enjoy ..mmm..
