iftar recipes for ramadan

iftar recipes for ramadan

the holy month of ramadan is here. many of the readers of my blog are from middle east, pakistan & bangladesh, who must be observing the ramadan fast. also not to forget my indian muslim friends & readers who might be doing the same in india.

for this special period of ramadan fasting i would like to share some recipes from my blog. you can even make these for your iftar parties. some recipes are indian and some are middle eastern which you can easily make in your home.

i am late in posting this list. reason being that i wanted to add some more recipes for ramadan and then make the list. but the way my work schedule is, i better write the post now. otherwise ramadan will be over and i would still not have posted the recipes.

i have categorized the entire list into a whole iftar menu as well for suhoor. take your pic and plan your iftar meals. make the correct combinations of dishes.  also make sure you eat healthy during the fasting period. drink lots of water, have lots of fruit juices and fruits.

wishing ramadan kareem to all my muslim friends and readers.

My neighbours who I think are Indian, have just knocked with a platter of food for us they have never done this before and we have only shared the odd hello when in passing. I’m wondering if this maybe is something traditional do do with Ramadan? If so should we reciprocate and what should I give in return as we would like to show our thanks, any ideas or help?
Thank you

lesley, i am not very sure about the ramadan festival. but as a unwritten rule, in most indian festivals we exchange sweets with neighbours. if you want then you can consider giving a big chocolate or cake or any other sweet. basically this sharing should come from heart. most indians are very open (less judgemental) during these festival occasions and its a good time to be friendly with your neighbours.

radha July 27, 2012 32

Nice of you to share. But I guess a lot of food would be non vegetarian. There is a special page today in the local newspaper about food they make for the breaking of the fast as well as the sahri /suhoor- the pre dawn meal. But as you say this a nice index for iftar.

Reply

dassana July 27, 2012 33

i know radha, most of the food is non vegetarian. i have attended some iftar parties and i personally know this. but my friends mother would make all veggie stuff for me and my family when we visited their place. so this list is a good option for vegetarian buffet or for someone who wants to have only veg food.
