Meet my bff 😍 Was on my blog last week sharing this very special '19 years and counting' friendship story and how we remained friends through challenges.. mainly a phone line that disconnected calls every 8 minutes but we still talked for hours undeterred by that 🤗 😘 link in profile. #ramblingsofalazymom #mombloggers #anotherpakistan #pakistaniamerican #bachpankidosti

When Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) started doing standup, he considered Hugh Grant to be the gold standard of rom-com stars. But @kumailn never dreamed of becoming one himself. “It just felt like the people who were making those things were, like, aliens, or gods,” he said. Next month, though, the 39-year-old actor tackles the lead role in @thebigsickmovie, which is based on his own experiences meeting and dating his future wife, @emilyvgordon, who wrote the script with him. @kumailn plays a gently tweaked version of himself; Emily (@zoe.kazan) is a therapist-to-be who heckles him during one of his sets. When Emily’s placed in a medically induced coma — a plot point taken from real life — things come to an unexpectedly funny head. Seeing a #PakistaniAmerican comic secure the romantic lead in a #Hollywood film would be a rare delight under any circumstances. What makes @thebigsickmovie all the more remarkable? It presents a vision of a Muslim family rarely seen in American film. “You just don’t see Muslims being matter-of-fact Muslim,” @kumailn said. “They’re always defined by their Muslim-ness.” Visit the link in our profile to read more, and to see more photos by @brinsonbanks.

March is Women's History Month and we're celebrating with #5womenartists in our collection: "[Shazia Sikander's work] has everything," writes Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art Karin Oen, "Engaging, thoughtful, layered imagery drawn from her close relationship with historical Indian and Persian painting; beautifully composed connections to the Prophet Muhammad; and an invitation for viewers to reflect on the artistic process from a personal point of view." #PortraitoftheArtist, a four-part etching created in collaboration with Pulitzer prize-winning playright Ayad Akhtar, is on view in our third floor galleries.

Tonight's life lesson in the Sajjad household:
Dad teaching his kids how to eat mangoes Pakistan style. 😂
Or at least how they did it in his day!
Or maybe just how he did it! #ramadhan2017 #summer2017 #dadslifelessons #oldschool #mangoes #pakistaniamerican 🇺🇸🇵🇰

I am looking to highlight Pakistani American poets, like myself, and want to present their poetry for all to read. Honestly this is a venture that is born out of my need to read poetry from others like myself. DM me your poems, thoughts, questions. You can also email it to igpakampoets@gmail.com #poetry #poem #poemoftheday #pakistaniamerican #pakistaniamericanpoets #igpakampoets #igpakampoetry #pakistaniamericanpoetry #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetrycommunity #poetryofig #poetryofinstagram #pakamart #pakamartist

Qeema salan (Ground beef cooked in onions & tomatoes) made by yours truly. [Recipe down below]

And, yes it is absolutely possible to make flavorful SouthAsian food without using a whole barrel of oil. Pun intended.

Today was a crazy day. Those of you who watch my Instagram stories know that Mr. "E" is down with a viral, and fighting high fever since three days. As usual, he is demanding lots of TLC at the moment.

On top of that, while baby "A" doesn't have a fever. Since yesterday, he has also been vomitting on and off. The little mister greeted me with full on projectile vomit this morning.
Oh, and no it doesn't end there. We also decided to have a massive diaper blowout on our way back from picking "Aapi" (big sister) from school.
Yup, that and a toddler fighting fever of 103.8 F is what I returned to once I got home.
Plus, there is a lot more that happened today. But if I add that, then we won't have space for this quick & easy recipe now, will we.

So without further ado. Here goes:

Pakistani Qeema Salan

2 lbs ground beef
2-8 tablespoons light olive oil
1 large onion (sliced)
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon whole black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 medium tomatoes (chopped)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons red chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
2 medium green chilies (cut into two)
6 tablespoons fresh cilantro (chopped)

In a pan heat oil & fry the onions on medium high heat till they turn golden brown. Now add cinnamon, whole black pepper and cloves. Stir for 10 seconds and add beef.

Stir fry beef for 5 minutes, then add tomatoes, salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and ginger garlic paste. Mix well, cook for 2 minutes on medium high heat. Cover and then cook for 15 minutes on medium low heat.

Now, add garam masala powder and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Add green chilies, mix, cover and cook for another 8 minutes. In the end, add half of the cilantro. Mix well, and turn off the heat. Your #Qeema is done.

Sprinkle left over cilantro on top of the Qeema, and serve it warm with Roti.

Rompers are cooler on girls than on boys.
