Everyone thinks their mom is the best cook in the world. But my mummy is seriously yummy! And this is the proof! My mother Gulnar, came from Basra, Iraq to Karachi in 1965 and brought recipes the likes of which Karachi had never seen (well, maybe). Here's some of her signature recipes that should try. Some of them are my experiments and food experiences from around the world. You can check out the menu and order details on facebook.com/yummymummyandme

Super Simple Stir Fry

It doesn't get any easier than this - a vegetable stir fry people who don't like veggies i.e me. Perfect for vegetarians and those on a weight loss plan

You'll need:
1/2 medium head of cabbage
100 gm carrots
100 gm peas
100 gm green/French beans
1/4 tsp garlic paste
2 tbsp soya sauce
A pinch of sugar
Salt to taste

Cut the cabbage, green beans and carrot into inch long pieces and set aside separately. Boil the diced carrot and peas until half cooked and drained. In a wok, heat up 1 tbsp of oil and fry the garlic paste for no longer than 30 seconds. Add the cabbage and green beans and keep stirring until they become glossy. Add 1 tbsp soya sauce and the sugar and mix well. Next, add the cooked peas and carrots. Add the remaining soya sauce and stir fry for another couple of minutes. The vegetables should be cooked just enough to release the sugars and give you a good crunchy bite.

This will give you a big helping of delicious vegetable stir fry. Good to eat on its's own or as a side with some  beef/chicken chilli and rice. This is good, you must take the veggie hater's word for it. Thanks mom! For making vegetables taste and lookd good!
