Chapli Kebab: The Flat Minced Meat Marvel Is An Explosion of Flavours You Must Not Miss

A piping hot Roomali roti or paratha, paired with tender and moist kebabs accompanied with freshly cut onions and green chillies, that’s how a typical ‘nashta’ in every third Peshawari and Awadhi household looked like many years ago.  The decadent and wholesome ‘nashtas’ may have made way for slightly healthier breakfast options in the recent past but that has, in no way, affected the popularity of these smoky and succulent wonders in the subcontinent. Kebabs have had their own journey worthy of being told and savoured over generations; one such tale has been…

The Mystery of the Do Pyaaza Dishes

One of the most common dishes from thesubcontinent, the Do Pyaaza is remarkably difficult to dig into. Of course, its flavours are irresistible and you don’t need to challenge your palate at all to immediately appreciate the caramelised sweetness of onions bunged in with meat and whole spices. However, it is when we begin to get into the history of the do pyaaza—or indeed trying to find a common recipe for this style of dishes—we begin to run into problems.

Horror classic Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth hits GOG with ‘fixes for modern PCs’

Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth is one of the all-time great horror games. It’s also notoriously busted. Buggy even at release, it only got worse in the intervening years as OS upgrades and so on rendered it basically unplayable.

I like my jerk hot, so I always request extra sauce. Growing up as a first-generation Jamaican-American in…

Bad and boujee: the lifestyle that took over TV

When Donald Glover kicked off a great year for television at the Golden Globes this January, the soundtrack to his success was obvious: “I really want to thank the Migos,” he said as he accepted Atlanta’s award for best TV series – musical or comedy. “Not for being on the show, but for making Bad and Boujee. Like, that’s the best song ever.” The next day, as if to prove the deeply felt sincerity of these comments, footage of Glover getting down to the track at an afterparty turned up on Instagram.
