4 Easy-To-Prepare Iftar Recipes For The Holy Month Of Ramadan
Ramadan is the most auspicious month for Muslims all over the world. It is adjudged the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which begins after the month of Shaban. This year, Ramadan commenced on April 02, 2022, with the holy fast scheduled from April 03, 2022.
Apart from fasting, people all over the world engage in prayers, introspection, philanthropy, and humanitarian activities during Ramadan. Millions around the world take up holy fasting, also known as Roza, with their friends and loved ones. The festival lasts 29-30 days, culminating in Eid-ul-Fitr.
The festive season is already here, and one simply cannot wait to celebrate it with lovely customs and, of course, delectable Iftar recipes. Ramadan, the Islamic world’s much-anticipated 30-day pleasant sacrifice, begins. The fast (Roza) is broken after sunset with a distinctive prayer and an opulent feast known as Iftar. Families and friends assemble for the celebratory feast in general, and customary savory and sweet delicacies are exchanged and enjoyed by young and old generations alike.
Here are four mouth-watering recipes for Iftar that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes:
One-Pot Chicken Biryani
A new variant of the traditional Indian biryani, this one-pot chicken biryani is made in a single pot. In a yogurt-based marinade, basmati rice, caramelized onions, and Indian spices are blended to keep the chicken tender and juicy. The unique part is that it only takes about 30 minutes to cook.
Lamb and Potato Combo
It’s another delicious recipe that works well as an appetizer that belongs to the light main course. Both children and adults enjoy these crispy and tasty cutlets. To prepare these cutlets, merge minced meat, egg, grated potatoes, onions, carrots, parsley, black pepper, and refrigerated chicken stock. Spray the cutlets gently with oil and bake until it turns golden brown for a low-fat alternative.
Chicken fajitas are a great weeknight meal because only one ingredient (the chicken filling) needs to be cooked, and a remainder is merely an assembly act. Get tortillas or wraps from the store, as well as salsa and any extra sides you choose (e.g., shredded cheese, chopped lettuce, cilantro, sour cream, and so on). While cooking, just sauté the chicken with some chopped peppers seasoned with cumin and lime juice. The fajitas are ready to serve!
