My mum made da best fish breyani and mutton curry.No one and I mean no one can ever make it like my mum.
My family is vegetarian,& vegetarian meals always call for variety. So special occasions in my home is a spread. My Mums signature Dish is a Paneer Soya Prawn Biryani,using basmathi Rice,served with a cucumber raita & papad. Even when our “carnivore” 🙂 counterparts are present….this biryani is the everyone’s fave & has created many wonderful memories that we cherish!
Happy Mother’s Day Mom’s the world over!!
My mother cooked the best pickled fish that to date I can’t find anything that matches her’s. When we were growing up in the 80’s we loved fried chicken. There was no chicken in the house on a particular Sunday. She made crusted beef steaks which resembled the fried chicken and I kept asking for more!
My mom passed away 3 years ago – the anniversary of her passing away is tomorrow (3/05). It’s always such a bittersweet feeling around Mother’s Day – I remember all the yummy treats she used to make with such fondness & crave the taste of my favourite meals! I’m 23 now, and never really got the chance to ask her for the recipe for my absolute FAVE meal that she used to make, which was a Malay fish curry in a peanut satay sauce! She used to send me containers of this to me regularly at university in CT, and it’d always be finished far too quick 🙂 Such a simple dish with such contrasting flavours that bring back so many memories!
My Mother Is the BesTest Cook and every1 goes crazy for all Her dishes but I must say no one comes close to making her signature Fish Breyani dish… She has such a flar when making it layer upon layer and the fried chips to seal the deal.. To Die For ❤ and even makes a Veggie version with her Ricottia cheese… Divine…. Lots Love 2 all and Happy Mothers day Yudhika and the 2 all our wonderFul mummIes ❤ ❤ ❤
The best meal my mother ever cooked was her mutton curry and rice, so yummy
Although mum has never used a cookbook ,her cooking is outstanding. She cooks with such love and pride and everyone who knows her says this. My personal favourite is her lamb curry and roti. Divine
My mom’s samp and beans is out of this world delicious. I now make it for my own family and they love it
My mom made the best fried chicken livers with onion & potato & a little chilli …. yummy!!!!!
I have not tried livers and potatoes before but it sounds really good – I love potatoes with everything!
My mom is a fantastic cook and whoe ever tastes her food can’t complain at all,we love it! Shes hooked onto ur spices since the first time she met u at the good food and wine show in cape town.she purchases ur spices regularly now and loves using them,thanks for added lots of flavour our meals.my personal favourite is the green curry that mom makes,I’ll eat it any day…
My sister and I would love it when my Mom made egg and bacon pie
My mums mutton breyani is the best ever! My mum often tries ur recipes and its to die for she is ur biggest fan
My mum also cooked the most delish meals. For me it’s her signature dish aloo ghos( mutton curry) with vagaar rice. Yummy. For my hubbi it’s definitely tin fish chutney and roti ( btw Mums late now but he still maintains that NOBODY ever came close to her chutney😄)
My mother is Mauritian and one of my favourite all time knock my socks off meal has to be her delicious and spicy fish breyani made the Mauritian way 🙂
I would love to know more about this Mauritian spicy fish breyani – its sounds absolutely delicious! Please share a little more with us! Yudhika
I absolutely love my Mother’s curried boerewors & green bean casserole. Green beans were never a favourite veggie until my Mother made it this way…very moreish and lipsmacking good.
I love curried green beans and dhal but never considered cooking it with Boerewors!
My mummy cooked the delicious steak with fresh cream.
Hey Yudi, my mom has made the best and the tastiest fresh chicken breyani with brown Basmati rice, together with Raita and dessert was her favourite Apple Pie.
My mom is my role model and I love her to bits. Tons of love, hugz n kisses to my mom.
The best meal mum made was:
Spicy Chicken Samoosas with sweet n spicy dip
Prawn and Chicken biryani with Raita
Baked Strawberry Cheesecake 🙂
Well my all time favorite food my mum makes has got to be her mouth watering chicken curry. Absolutely scrumptious
MY MUM PASSED ON WHEN I WAS 5 YEARS OLD AND AM THE 9TH OF 10 CHILDREN…I AM 41 YEARS YOUNG NOW, HOWEVER, I HAVE 5 ELDER SISTERS WHO RAISED ME UP AND THEY ARE ALL “ME MUMS”……I GREW UP WATCHING AND LEARNING FROM THEM AND OUR BESTEST TIMES STILL ARE IN THE KITCHEN…CHICKEN AND METHI BHAJI WITH PARATAS, KHIMA KEBAB CHUTNEY AND MUTTO BIRYANI WITH CARROT SALAD AND RAITA IS ALL OF OUR FAVOURITES TO COOK AND OF COURSE EAT…YUMMY!
How lucky you are to have 5 elder sisters who cook so beautifully! They don’t only sound like good cooks but also amazing people. Just reading your comment makes me nostalgic about family and food. I feel so hungry now and think I will have a keema masala sandwich for brekkie!
M mum makes the best roti and sugar beans curry. The best food is right at home with her cooking. She deserves an award for this:)
I agree with you – the best food is at home…I was all ‘meated’ out on Monday and asked my mom to make exactly that for dinner…the kids had curry bean roti rolls for school lunch the next day and they loved it – old is gold and nothing could take the place of home cooking!
I could never pick just one meal of my mums that I love – there are just too many! I love her stuffed roast chicken though and am always trying to improve mine so that it tastes just like mums.
I have not had a good old fashioned roast chicken with stuffing in ages….why don’t people make it anymore??? What did your mom use in the stuffing? Sounds like something I should make this week!
The best meal I can remember is. Sour herbs. Dhal. With mealie rice. N pickles
My mum makes a mouth watering cornish chicken beryani. Being an only child ( and a boy) meant that I was the one always helping my mum in the kitchen. Her vast expertise of knowledge, brilliant use of spices and trusted experience makes my mum the worlds greatest cook in my eyes. Its through her sumptuous meals that I today can also cook and bake well (if I do say so myself). When I was much younger my mum would prepare cornish chicken beryani for the entire family- that inculed her in laws and a few neighbours-, she would do it the old fashioned way, the making of a fire that was just the right temperature, using freshly ground spices, marinating the meat in curds and spices,frying of onions until the perfect golden colour was achieved. The whole process seemed magical to me. It was simply amazing how she would just know the exact amount of everything that was required in the beryani. The memory I treasure the most is when she opened the pot and the aroma and fragrance announced itself. Even our neighbours would smack their lips. Unfortunately gone are the days when beryani was made like that, my mum now uses the stove(and the beryani is still as wonderful as ever) but the memories attached to the fire made beryani still makes my mouth water!
Congratulations – you have just won the Yudhika Yum Yum Mother’s Day Hamper!
