iftar recipes, ramadan recipes

the holy month of ramadan is here. many of the readers of our blog are from middle east, pakistan, bangladesh and are vegetarian or vegan.

i get a lot of mails from these readers. they also 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 vegetarian and vegan recipes for the ramadan fasting. 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 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.

    Ramadan Kareem to all, love ur compilation of recipes , very thoughtfully done, have been innovating on veggies for Ramadan since the last 5 years as its a very healthy way to go , non veg eaten in the sub continent during Ramadan are dangerous calorie bombs :): , kudos for a good collection


    Jazak Allahukhairan bro ( May Allah reward you) for the awesome recipe……..
    Really thankful you to share it with us…

    My Muslim friends here in the Philippines are very excited for Ramadan 2014. They said if it wouldn’t start tomorrow, then it would be on Sunday. I respect how much they cherish this occasion and also enjoy it, especially their Muslim delicacies. 😀 Happy Ramadan to everyone, dear friends and may your purpose be done. Cheers!

    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.

  16. says

    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.

    • says

      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.
