Hey 🙂 My name is Shameema, and I’m a food-loving South African medical student. I am Indian and Muslim, both which profoundly influence my tastes. Being Indian means words like dhana jeeru and chana magaj have been part of my vocab for as long as I can remember. Being Muslim means there are several things I can never consume: pork, or any porcine products; alcohol; meat from animals which are not slaughtered in the name of Allah (and by default, animal rennet in cheese); and blood products, like black pudding.
Thank you for visiting my blog! Feel free to comment away – I would love to hear from you 🙂
