Are you fasting for Ramadan and in need of some new ideas for how to break your fast? Try these traditional recipes
I am a Pakistani but my family roots trace back to Indian soil. My grandparents immigrated to Pakistan from India during the Great Divide of the Sub-continent. I grew up relishing traditional Indian recipes tweaked with Pakistani ingredients.
The Ramadan fasting for Muslims is followed by feasting. The Iftaar meals (eaten at the fast-breaking time) are made with nutritious ingredients.
The fast is broken by eating dates, which are a great source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and natural sugar to restore blood sugar levels after the fasting hours. Rooh Afza—a flavoured sweet hydrating drink, that originated in the Indian subcontinent in the 1900s is inextricably linked with Iftaar for its cooling nutritious properties.
My Ramadan spread consists of traditional Indo-Pak recipes both combined together on a single plate.
A fruit salad with an Indian twist.
Spicy lentil dumplings dipped in a tangy sauce

Aloo Ki Tikki

Baked Soft and sweet dumplings from the inside and crunchy outside
