#StayHomeStaySafe #FestiveTreats #IftarSpecial #RamadanRecipes

The holy month of Ramadan is upon us. It is during this time, millions of Muslims across the globe partake in what is called Roza, a period of fasting. The day’s fast begins at dawn and ends at sunset. While this month is a time for devotion and prayer, one also looks forward to the spread of delectable dishes prepared to enjoy after the fast.

Exploring the myriad dishes at the nearby market during Iftar used to be one of the activities people used to look forward to. But, now that we’ve been confined to our homes, going out isn’t quite an option, is it? That, however, shouldn’t stop you from enjoying some delicious snacks and dishes after the fast. So, here are some easy and delightful dishes you can prepare at home for your next Iftar.

Aren’t home-made samosas the best? You can customise them any way you like. Use your leftover keema masala to create this heavenly recipe. Tastes best when served with a refreshing hung curd dip.

This one pot recipe is quick, easy and mouth-watering. Maximise its flavour with the use of whole spices and any other veggies you’d like to add to it. This classic rice dish with chunky chickpeas will definitely be a hit, trust us!

Who doesn’t like a juicy kebab that simply melts in your mouth? Mixed with ground chana dal and a host of spices and aromatics, shammi kebabs are a crowd-pleaser no matter what meat you choose. Try it for you next Iftar meal and watch as it disappears in seconds!

This recipe is not just a quick one, but also a treat to the taste buds. Loaded with veggies, this dish packs a punch when it comes to flavour. Add raisins and cashews as garnish, for pops of sweetness and a delicious crunch.

You can’t go wrong with this Middle-Eastern classic. This fried patty made with chickpeas and an assortment of spices and herbs is an absolutely delightful finger food, and is sure to please everyone in the family. Don’t forget the bowl of Hummus on the side to dip the falafel in.

An Iftar meal will never be complete without something sweet. This burfi made with dates gets done in under 10 mins and requires just 4 ingredients – dates, mawa/khoya, almond meal and ghee. It’s a rich, tasty and festive treat for even the ones who tend to steer away from refined sugar in their food.

Whoever said quick and easy dishes can’t be tasty should think again. These easy-to-make recipes will definitely make you the star of every Iftar. Happy Ramadan, everyone!
