Hi there! My name is Sarah (pronounced Saa-Ra) and I am a Pakistani Food Blogger who shares her love for cooking and baking at Flour & Spice. Whether it is traditional Pakistani recipes, the best cakes and desserts or that fantastic burger, I believe in simplifying cooking without sacrificing flavor.
I have been cooking and baking since I was little, but it is only in recent years that I have learnt to love both the process and power of Pakistani cooking.
As a Pakistani origin Canadian with two girls, I realized when they were young that I wanted them to love their heritage as much as I do, and the fastest way to that my friends is a fantastic pulao, a comforting daal, and that creamy cold kulfi.
It's when I started seeing cooking Pakistani recipes as creating more than just food that I embraced it's true power and became enamored by the magic of it. Done right, cooking feels a little bit like empowering, healing, and love rolled in to one.
If you are skeptically raising an eyebrow because you don’t even remotely identify with that sentiment then I don’t blame you. The truth is that baking is my first love, it is where I find the most peace. Cooking I have learnt to love with time and I truly hope that through the recipes here, you do too.
Pakistani Food Recipes & Traditional Cooking
One of the things I am most grateful for is that I come from a family of practical women. Be it my mother or grandmother or my aunts or cousins, when it comes to food they have never levied the compulsion of tradition on us.
Our conditioning has always been to work smarter not harder, while respecting authentic flavours.
Simple things like the Pakora Mix, the Salan Masala, the freezer full of prepped foods, are a way of life. They allow us to eat our favorite Pakistani recipes without devoting ourselves entirely to the kitchen.
Does everything taste better when done faster? Decidedly not.
So what will you find here at Flour & Spice?
You will find most of all a Pakistani food blog with a vast collection of Pakistani Recipes that demystify the art of Pakistani Cooking, from comfort favorites like Chicken Pualo and Aloo Gosht to a solid Masoor ki Daal and all the Pakistani Chicken Recipes your heart desires.
