The secret to an authentic curry - Kohinoor Foods

You can find thousands of recipes for different kinds of curries online or in cookery books. For novices, it's often hard to choose which recipe to use. In my earlier, more amateur cooking days, I often used try out recipes given to me by my mum, but they never used to taste as good.

Are There Really Any Role Models for Our Girls?

After Rebecca Adlington's revelations this week in 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here', it got me thinking about role models. Rebecca became a national treasure after winning us a gold medal in swimming last year in the Olympics, and is a superb role model for any young girl.

Halal Wine Anyone?

In a country like Britain where alcohol is drunk on most occasions, be it a wedding, funeral, party, football match, how hard is it to be a teetotaller? I've heard of people who have held a glass of wine in their hand at an important work do and not actually drunk it, in order to fit in.

I find it incredible that Islam and Muslims are interrogated and harassed on a daily basis over social media. It just doesn't happen to people of other faiths. There are people who have Twitter accounts for the main purpose of vilifying and insulting Islam. There are hundreds whose profiles reflect this.

By Sharmeen Ziauddin A typical one-hour session of smoking shisha involves inhaling 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled with a single cigarette, according to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO). Shisha, also known as the Turkish water pipe, narghile, hookah, or hubbly-bubbly, contains tobacco and is classed in the same category as cigarettes.

Boris Johnson Has Lost The Plot

Whilst Boris may have appeased some of the electorate by attacking members of the Muslim community, he's definitely lost me as a voter and possibly thousands of others.
