Elvis aka Peanut Butter And Banana French Toast

I seriously need to stop making anymore french toast recipes before I ruin my small repute but I'm sorry my love for Peanut Butter is equal to a man's love fore their child.

YES this is another french toast recipe and YES this is not the last one but for now it is.

This time I decided to make a Peanut Butter one but someone lovely told me to add Bananas to it.

Thanks to Chris Rock, whenever I hear Bananas, it reminds me of his stand up comedy show where he is doing a Gwen Stefani parody in his own way "THE SHIT IS BANANAS, B-NA-NANAS-NANAS" which I know is not the right way she sang it but who cares.

This is Peanut Butter And Banana French Toast an d the recipe is very, very, and very simple.


4 slices of sandwich bread

2-3 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

Splash of milk or 2 splashes of milk (splash is a funny word)

Creamy peanut butter

Icing sugar for topping


Cut the sides of the bread if you want to. I do because I don't like bread sides or side hoes.

Apply peanut butter properly till the whole surface of all the slices is covered.

Top the bottom slice with banana slices.

Break the eggs in a bowl, add vanilla essence and a splash of milk.

Whisk it.

Heat 1-2 tablespoon of butter on a non-stick frying pan.

Dip the sandwich in the egg batter but don't let it soak too much.

Fry it on both sides on medium low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Peanut Butter And Banana French Toast is done.

Plate it as you want, pour honey over it or sprinkle some icing sugar.

Ladies and gentlemen BEHOLD !!! Peanut Butter And Banana French Toast.

Stir Fry Walnut Chicken

I love nuts and by that I mean dry fruit in case you have a very disgusting mind. Thank God I'm not a woman because it would have sound even more dirtier.

Not every dry-fruit or form of nuts is good for health. Some are just plain calories and blood pressure catalysts.

Walnuts are the good nuts just like almonds. Walnuts are good for a lot of things.

Some of these things are helping in weight-loss (which doesn't mean that you gulp them), they are good for hair, skin, reducing diabetes and stress relief.

This recipe I am going to make is again oriental and has lots of walnuts in them ?(as much as you want to add). It is a bit different of a Stir Fry Walnut Chicken with a combination of nice and expensive vegetables.


500 grams of boneless chicken cut into 1 inch thick pieces

1/2 medium red capsicum

1/2 medium yellow capsicum

a medium sized broccoli stalk

some finely chopped green onions

1 cup of chicken broth

4 teaspoon of cornflour ( 2 for the chicken and 2 for the broth)

4 teaspoons of soy sauce ( 2 for the chicken and 2 for the broth)

1.5 teaspoon salt (half for the chicken and one during the cooking)

1.5 teaspoon black pepper (half for the chicken and one during the cooking)

1 teaspoon ginger paste

1 teaspoon garlic paste

1 cup of walnuts but you can add more if you want

First of all we marinade the chicken by adding 2 teaspoon of corn flour, 2 teaspoon of soy sauce, salt and black pepper with a little chicken broth just to give the chicken a nice flavor.

Now we add the other 2 teaspoon of soy sauce and corn flour in a separate bowl, whisk it together and then add the remaining chicken broth to it .

Set it aside.

After doing the both above you cut your vegetables the way you like them.

Let the stir frying begin.

Heat up 3-4 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan (JUST BY THE WAY I NEED A NEW ONE).

Add the chicken along the ginger paste, garlic paste and cook it until the chicken changes color.

Add the chicken broth mixture and if you want you can add the walnuts right now or later at the end.

I added them after this step to add more flavor to them and the whole darn recipe.

Let it cook until the gravy gets a little thick.

Add the broccoli first, stir fry it for 2 minutes and then add the red/yellow capsicum.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper at this point so the vegetables are not tasteless.

Stir fry for a minute or two.

I stir fried it until the gravy was reduced enough to give the whole dish a dry look.

Sprinkle on some chopped green onion at the very last minute and you are all done.

Top it off with more walnuts and chopped green onions.

Ladies and gentlemen, lets all go nus for Stir Fry Walnut Chicken.

Dragon Chicken

Everyone is waiting for the new season of Game of Thrones because who won't. I wanna know more about the dragons than any other character in it.

I am a bit impatient so I rather bring those dragons out one way or another.

So, I've been hearing about this Indo-China recipe called Dragon Chicken a lot. Never found it in any restaurant but the name sounds too intriguing for me to try on.

I wish I could find a real life dragon, kill it and mix it with chicken. Cook it and then that'd be some really insane Dragon Chicken but for now I have to do with this.


500 grams chicken cut in 1-2 inch long cubes

1/2 medium red capsicum cut in triangles

1/2 medium yellow capsicum cut in triangles

1 big tomato cut in triangles

3-4 green onion bulbs finely chopped

green part of green onions finely chopped

3-4 garlic cloves finely chopped

1.5 teaspoon of ginger paste (half for chicken one for gravy)

1/2 teaspoon garlic paste for chicken

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1.5 teaspoon of salt (half for chicken and one for gravy)

1.5 teaspoon of black pepper (half for chicken and one for gravy)

1 teaspoon of garam masala (half for chicken and half for gravy)

1.5 teaspoon of red chili powder (half for chicken and one for gravy)

2 tablespoon corn flour

Marinade the chicken with ginger paste, garlic paste, salt, garam masala, black pepper and red chili powder. Let it be for 30 minutes.

Then add cornflour and a little of chicken broth and mix it well.

Heat oil in a non stick pan and fry the chicken until golden brown.

Drain the chicken and keep the chicken aside.

Now heat up 2 tablespoon olive oil in a non-stick frying pan, add ginger paste and chopped garlic.

Fry until fragrant then add the chopped green onion bulbs.

Add the red and yellow capsicum, fry for a minute.

Add tomatoes and stir fry for another 30 seconds.

Now add ketchup, chicken broth, salt, black pepper, red chili powder, garam masala, soy sauce and vinegar. Let it cook on high heat for a minute.

Lower the heat to medium and add the chicken.

Add the chopped green onions and some sesame seed which is just  optional.

If you want to make it spicier use chili garlic sauce instead of ketchup and add a tablespoon of sriracha sauce if you have that.

Let it cook until your desired thickness of gravy and Dragon Chicken is read to serve.

Dungeons, dragons, kings and queens. Brace yourselves for Dragon Chicken.

Nutella Walnut French Toast

I have been asked only one question again and again with a couple of other questions like "are you single?" NO I AM NOT SINGLE. This question is so damn mid 90s.

THE QUESTION food related which I am asked the most is "SHAMSHER WHY THE F**K DON'T YOU MAKE DESSERTS?"

The answer is very simple "I DON'T KNOW HOW TO." but I have tried today and yes this is my first dessert recipe blog post and yes it's a very easy dessert to make with only a handful of ingredients.

Even a 5 year old can make it and this time I meant it because maybe that 5 year old can make it better than me.

This Recipe is called Nutella Walnut French Toast.


3 slices of sandwich bread

Nutella of course

Handful of walnuts

2 eggs

Vanilla essence 1/2 teaspoon

Splash of milk

1 tablespoon of butter

Cocoa powder for garnishing

First of all put your slices in line and if you want to cut away the crust do so. I did haha. I don't like the crust.

I am using 3 slices because I want more layers and more filling to my french toast.

See the below picture and make the similar space inside the middle slice which will let us fill it with more Nutella and walnuts.

Now put Nutella on the first layer and place the second slice on it.

Add more Nutella and walnuts on the space we created in the middle of the second slice just like in the below picture.

The initial sandwich is assembled now.

Now we make the batter by putting two eggs, splash of milk and vanilla essence in a bowl.

Whisk and set aside.

Dip your sandwich properly in the batter and coat it well.

Do not leave it on the batter as it will only make it soggy.

Heat a tablespoon of butter in a non-stick frying pan.

Fry your french toast 3 minutes each side on medium heat.

Nutella Walnut French Toast is ready. Lets plate that diabetic beauty.

Ladies and Gentlemen, load your insulin for Nutella Walnut French Toast.
