      I think you know most of the stuff mashallah ... once you know the basics , cooking isnt really the hardest thing in the world ...

      and hey if you know a bit of stitching and basic sewing , that will be immense help .. not thats its going to be much required here in the UK , but you know for most desi clothes , changing fittings and doing buttons etc , really helps in time of need ... so you might wanna ask mommy for any shortcuts ...

      Rest , inshallah you will do fine ... and here's an insider tip .. take it easy .. focus on what husband likes and sometimes men can be picky about their food .. so expect lots of changes in your cooking style later on .. you might go there thinking hey no one can cook saag better then me , you end up realizing he hates saag all together ! ... so yeah , now that you know the basics , dont fret too much ...

      Kebabs! You need to know how to make kebabs (shammi. chapli, seekh - which ever ones you like), especially to freeze and take out to serve when you're running out of time.

      Koftas are another thing you can make ahead and freeze and save time with later.

      You should just know how to take care of simple things so you don't have to find someone for every single stitch you know?

      And I think you already do. Buttons, small hand stitching to tighten something or mend/repair.

      You almost know everything.. If you know the basics you can make any cuisine. Internet and youtube is full of cooking recipes .

      And seriously I think guys these days are not PAI-TOO so don't spend you time and energy learning all those dishes with difficult names :P
      I may not be perfect but I am always ME.:)

      All you need is the will to learn things and make accommodations as needed. When my mom got married, she didn't know anything and now she makes the best food I have ever had.
