Sheer Pira

Sheer Pira

Last week i found out that Muslims around the world celebrated the Eid -ul-Zuha.I grew up in Hindu-Muslim community in India.Schools are out on this day there.I had the opportunity to witness the festivity growing up. My prayer through this : May the people worship one true god,The Lord. ‘Bakreed’ is the term that I am familiar with.Literally means “Bakra Eid” .”Bakra” meaning goat.On this day, Muslim faithful sacrifice the animal.One third of the meat is kept for the family, one third is distributed among family and friends and one third is given to the poor. So I decided to close out our Afghanistan tour on sweet note.Though “Firni” (thick milk pudding)is the most popular dessert of Afghanistan,I chose a candy like dessert ¬†called “Sheer Pira”. Sheer Pira is very sweet cardmom scented candy like milk dessert, hard and chewy at the same time. Traditionally it is made with whole cream milk powder.All I could find was non-fat milk powder in my grocery store, so that’s what i used....

Sitting in a cozy corner of my home as i enjoy the sound of rain and cool morning,i go over the list of prayer and challenges for Afghanistan from Operation World.I look into the pictures and couldn’t help but ¬†wonder how does rain feel like there?Is it cozy or uncomfortable? People of Afghanistan are facing ¬†many challenges from recovery to rebuilding .To the very least you and i can do is to pray for the wisdom and courage among many other things for them.May we intercede for them. {Insert the name of the country,as you pray this prayer} Now this recipe which i am going to share with you, i made it as a side dish to go with Kitchadi,a comfort food,when i had sore throat couple days back. It is a layered dish of eggplant and bell pepper,topped with tomatoes and served with the spoonful drizzle of yogurt sauce. Eggplants or bell peppers can be fried or baked or grilled.I simply sauted it one after another.If you are...

Qabili Pilau

Qabili Pilau

What conjures up your mind with “Afghanistan” ? I often think of green eyed Afghan girl, made famous by Steve McCurry’s shot. Something about her eyes are so piercing that it has stuck with me ever since i saw the image for the first time. Behind her eyes lies the reality of war torn country,poverty,society in disarray to name¬† the few. What is even more sad is, people have not heard the gospel of Christ. Sometimes, I think, how do we pray for them? Life seems so overwhelming there. We are using the opeartion world as a guide to aid in our prayer for healing, stabiity, structure and most importantly for the people of Afghanistan to come to Christ. As i was researching the food of Afghanistan,i came across “Qabili Pilau’ or “Kabuli pulao”.Many variations are there in the name.It is a national dish of Afghanistan. This is what i have learnt about this dish It is very mildly spiced rice dish unlike Indian biriyani. You can add meat...
