Khowse Concoction

Written by on April 17, 2012 in Easy Recipes

So I tried out Lunch Date Cook Sister Humaira Meer’s Khowse Recipe yesterday. I just added my own twist to it.

Humaira’s Khowse Recipe


I used the basic Humaira Meer recipe minus the ink Squid. I used chicken fillet instead of normal chicken. I also used crushed pre fried onions that was gifted to me by Aunty Farida’s kitchen from Durban. I added some oat meal and sesame seeds.

I tried to make the kachoomar (onion symbal) as well. Apart from making me cry, (what is the old wive’s tale about this), it was a bit bitter during supper but was much better the next day.


It was a wholesome meal.I felt full till the next day lunch. Budget wise, thought the coconut milk was a bit over the budget side but well worth the spend. There was an option to buy R22.00 pur from the spa but I opted to buy potato crisp and doritos instead to experiment. The main reason was the laziness factor to fry pur.(wonder how air fried pur tastes). I wanted to explore Khowse with different crunchiness factors. See below my Khowse concoctions.

Madala enjoyed it but said the flavour did not go in the meat, (maybe i should marinate for a night) and said it was a very lovely chicken soup. eish, maybe my cooking skills are not as good as I thought. Bachoo said it was delicious (i am not sure if she is practising for the lunch date this weekend in Radiokop). Once  it got colder  she said it was ok. When I asked her between the leftover rice and the left over Khowse for lunch she opted for the rice. Poiroo was stuffed from the plain pasta that I gave him before supper but when I gave it to him the next day, I asked him, is it LEKKER? Poiroo said “JA!”

Here are my Khowse Conctions. I felt the kachoomar onion thing was not so lekker for supper but the next day was better.
