Kopee Fai, Carrot and Tomato Salad

We don't normally eat salad as a main meal, its usually served as a side dish with some thing. This is one of my latest addition to our lunch table. Carrots and tomatoes are easily available . Kopee fai is a local green which is similar to  kale and also to the Chinese Kale.  Its quite easy to grow too and you will find a lot of these kopee fai plants growing on the road side in a lot of Maldivian Islands.

Smoked Tuna

During the first term mid term break , my husband and his three sibling and all the  families , headed to his island  , Lh. Naifaru.  This was our third visit and I have to come to love and enjoy my time in this small island. One of the things I love about this island is the strong communities and one of my favorite streets is Thitha's street ,where  hubby's aunt Thitha lives in an old run down but cosy  home. The street is old and narrow  and can see inside the coral walled houses .

Vegetable Pilaf

Eid at my home is usually   breakfast down stairs with my parents, and sisters and their families, my mum would task each of us with a dish and she will sit and relax and call friends and families to wish them. Kids get presents and usually play outside in the  garden , while we cooked. I usually finish early , and instead of having lunch at my parents I head to my Mum in law's for lunch with hubby and the boys along with the rest of his sibblings.

Cheesy Tuna And Vegetable Pinwheels

This is a great way to use up left over  roshi, or flat bread, something which I am sure will be in excess during Ramadhan.

Lonumirus Chicken Drumsticks

My little guy used to be easier to feed but nowadays when it comes to chicken he is getting a bit picky on how its cooked. He prefers the drumstick and it has to be either roast or baked .

Muranga Fai Mashuni ( Tuna and Morainga leaves Sambal)

The Morainga tree in our yard has been there forever.  As a child I was literally forced to eat the leaves, which I hated back then, as most kids do.

Pumpkin and Spinach Calzone

 Calzones are just folded up pizzas , or portable pizzas. The topping goes on one side and then its folded in half and sealed , ufresh from the oven the cheese just oozes out , that is if you have used mozzarella.

Fish Curry

Tuna is  used  frequently to make curries here in the Maldives.  After making my home made  coconut based curry powder, I   decided to use it to make fish curry to serve along with Roshi ( local flat bread)
