  2. Salaamu alaykum, a friend of mine whose husband is from Ghana makes something kinda like this. With rice, though, and sans the banana. :)

  3. Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

    First of all I hope this reaches you in good state of health and imaan insha Allah

    Subhan Allah, where do I start, your recipes are great masha Allah
    It almost feels weird, in a good way, for me coz I hardly ever see receipes like these online because I recognise most of them.

    I am so excited to visit this website, hope you kept it up insha Allah

    JazakAllah khayr sis
