Beef with Lemony Potatoes

There's one dish I don't make often enough (sadly) and that's the beef with lemony potatoes stew.

It was one of the recipes I used for the Noor oil project and let me tell you, it was a screaming success (the crew can vouch for me, right guys?).

This is me making it on the set.  I may not look excited but trust me, I am doing somersaults inside.

What's In a Video

True, they might be only 3-minute Noor oil videos but the effort that goes into each one is tremendous.  Here's a pictorial.

Pumpkin Season

I had to pick a 'challenging ingredient' as part of my Noor oil recipes.  And I really challenged myself when I picked pumpkin. I love pumpkin in cakes, desserts, roasted, and in soup.  Here's my pumpkin loaf recipe (link) and if you are craving pumpkin in a warm soup, you will love this version.

However, the recipe I'm talking about today uses fresh pumpkin in a delicious and creamy stew.

A very unique flavor – this is not your typical stew! The vinegar adds the perfect kick, yogurt makes this devilishly creamy and the pumpkin tops it off to be the perfect vegetable.

Something's cooking in the kitchen...

A few months ago, I found an interesting message in my inbox.  An invitation to take part in a new online community.  A community driven by the love of cooking.  Who can say no to that?
