Baked sharwama recipe

Easy homemade sharwamma

4 pieces thigh fillet and 2 pieces chicken breast
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon ,Half cup Yogurt
2 tbsp Lemon juice ,pepper,Salt, Star aise,1 tsp Smoked paprika ,1 tsp Cumin ,1/2 tsp ground coriander 1 block crushed Garlic, 1 block crushed Ginger,Normal paprika 1 heaped
1/4 tsp Chilli flakes (use more if needed),1/4 cup Oil ,1/2 tsp dried Oregano
Handful chopped parsley, 1 onion cut into chucks

  1. Marinate the meat overnight in the above ingredients
  2. Use 3 skewers to Pearce the meat through. Keeping the chicken breasts in the middle
  3. Keep a slight gap between the meat
  4. Hang the skewers over a baking tray
  5. Put the remaining marinate over the meat
  6. Put the onions on the bottom of the tray
  7. Bake in oven for approx 40 mins on 200 degrees or until cooked thoroughly

Serving suggestions : chips, Lebanese bread, hummus pickled cabbaged gherkins red onions cucumber tomatoes chilli sauce, garlic Mayo

This recipe is perfect to marinate over night and grill ,you can put chips in the oven at the same time, if I know I’ve got a long week at work I marinate and freeze this and defrost the night before and pop in the oven when I get home.

Tips: if meat is browning too quickly pop some foil on top , if you want a more charred outside put under the grill for a few mins, double check your thigh fillets for any bones

Such an easy recipe!

Cauliflower Alfredo

Simple creamy sauce

Creamy Cauliflower Alfredo- sauce ready in 15 mins! An amazing hidden veg recipe and so simple.

250-275g frozen cauliflower florets
2 peeled garlic cloves
2tbsp finely chopped parsley
1cup grated cheese (cheddar)
1.5 cups milk
3tbsp butter
Salt pepper
Pinch chilli flakes

  1. Boil cauliflower and garlic in water until very soft

2 strain the cauliflower/garlic cloves and put into blender, add milk ,butter and 1/2 cup cheese

3 blend fully for at least 2 mins the longer you liquidise the smoother the sauce!

4 . Return sauce to pot add salt pepper chilli flakes , parsley .check salt you can add more cheese or salt if needed

  1. Cook pasta as per packaging, reserve 1 mug of pasta water , drain pasta and mix 1/2 cup pasta water into sauce at a time, use more if you want a thinner sauce
  2. Cook pasta in sauce for at least 2-3 mins

Serving toppings: cheese , croutons , roasted panko crumbs

Serving options: steam veg or side salad

Tips: adjust salt after adding cheese , you need to cook cauliflower until very soft, the sauce is supposed to be thick but thins out once you put pasta water, you need to cook the pasta in sauce and adjust the salt , I’ve used non diary milk and works just as well!most importantly liquidise the sauce for minimum 2-3 mins you don’t want lumpy cauliflower, a hand held blender doesn’t work as well. Sauce works well when made ahead, doesn’t freeze well.

Super easy! Looks like a lot of ingredients but this is a dump and leave recipe😂This meat mixture freezes well! And I usually have left over of this for a lunch.

1 large onion (or 2 medium) finely chopped

2 carrots , peeled and grated

1 stem celery, finely chopped

750g chicken mince

4 cloves garlic finely chopped



1/2 tsp chilli flakes 

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1tsp paprika

Small handful parsley

Small handful coriander 

2 tins chopped tomatoes, liquidised

3tbsp ketchup

1/2 of a chicken stock cube 

Fresh lasagne sheet (see note)

1. 1/4 cup oil add onions celery and carrots – cook for 2-3 mins until slightly softened 

2. Add you mince and cook until the colour changes 

3. Add all your garlic and spices, tomato tins and ketchup and stock cube with 1/2 tin of water. Add parsley and coriander 

6. simmer for 30 mins until most of the liquid is evaporated and you are left with a THICK SAUCE Taste salt and adjust as needed

7leave to cool

Making homemade white sauce 

4tbsp butter,1/4 cup flour ,500ml milk (or almond milk)1/4 cup grated cheese

Salt to taste (I hardly put any because of the cheese)

Make double this recipe- it should be thick to coat the back of a spoon 

Melt better and flour together whisk, add a little milk and gradually add more cook until thick add cheese

Layer up :

1. Thin layer of Meat-white sauce lasagne sheet

2. Thin layer of Meat -white sauce lasagne sheet

3. Meat white sauce and cheese

Once layered 

Cook on 180 for 30 mins until done (you can check by piercing knife though the sheets of lasagne)

YOU MUST LEAVE the lasagne to rest outside of the oven 15-20mins before serving otherwise it will be runny


1. ketchup- as tomato tins can be a little butter or sub for 1-2tsp sugar

2. Fresh lasagne sheets cook faster and I don’t like something that takes ages in the oven 😂

3. If the lasagne is browning quickly cover with foil and pierce a few holes. 

why my lasagne is runny?

1. The meat sauce was too saucy- you need to cook out the tomato

2. mixture was very hot and it steamed between the layers of lasagne 

3. You haven’t rested the lasagne after it came out the oven long enough!

4. Your mixtures won’t “dry out” in the oven1d
