Ainy Cooks

IMG_9390MChicken kebabs and lamb kebabs are most popular and different in taste, desired Afghani food. One thing which i noticed that the spices used in Afghani foods are not bland. Afghans have their own way of cooking and they usually try to keep the balance when it comes to adding spices.

In the pic below you can see an Afghani restaurant in my city.

The Afghan lady told me that each part of Afghanistan has it’s own cooking style. They were living in Kabul so their recipes are modified and versatile. Afghan lady’s daughter is a head cook back in Afghanistan she is working for any foreign company,  and i am fortunate that i got a chance to meet her. This recipe is her gift for me….:)
Here are few pics of her cute kids.
