Ramadhan is always a special month for us and billions of Muslim in the world. This time our family can sit together during iftar and sahur. We may learn self restraint and developing Taqwa. At the end of Ramadhan heralds the celebration of Eid ul-Fitr.

The yummy recipe which she likes to prepare for Iftar time during Ramadan is, Candil/Sweet Potato in coconut milk & Choco Pudding in Horns
I’d like to wish all my fellow bloggers Ramadan Kareem, and if you read this by the end of the month i’d like to wish you Eid Mubarak! Breaking the fast with dates is a Ramadan tradition. After fasting from dawn to dusk, which is roughly a bit more than 13 hours, a date is the most perfect fruit to start with. One of the many physical benefits of breaking the fast with dates is that our body benefits from the date’s high level of natural sugars. Sugars travel most quickly to the liver, where they are converted into energy more quickly than any other nutrient. A sudden bombardment with food could be a shock to the empty stomach after a day of fasting. Eating a date first helps the body start its digestive process and gives it the energy to deal with the secondary, more complex foods, eaten during Iftar. Dates also have a special place in Islam. In fact, they were one of the Prophet’s (SAW) most frequently consumed foods. For this reason, their benefit is most likely spiritual as well as physical says Kate/Kajal of Aapplemint. The innovative recipe she likes to prepare for Iftar time during Ramadan is, Wanna Date ??
During Ramadan, I always try to make something simply for my iftar – this time I chose Sholeh Zard – Saffron Rice Pudding from Persian Kitchen. This pudding is easy to make and high calorie too, my husband from Iran loves this dish so much .. and he always tell a story behind this dish.
He said, his family always make rice pudding in a very big pot and distributed to the poor people during Ramadan or any religious ceremonies. Or they make sholeh zard when their wish come true 🙂 and give it away in thanks says Fitri of Rumah Manis. The recipes she likes like to prepare for Iftar time during Ramadan are,1. Saffron Rice Pudding – Sholeh Zard2. Indonesian Dessert – Kolak Pisang
I love fasting month back in Malaysia, no other reasons except the Ramadhan Market (typical me). Being a Malaysia born chinese, I am not required to fast. In fact, I ate a lot more in fasting month because of the Ramadhan market. I loved and missed the joy of hanging around in the Ramadhan market with my friends and brothers. My malay friends always got amazed by how excited I was towards the Ramadhan market.
My favourate Ramadhan market back in Malaysia was the one at TTDI, PJ. I loved the smell of the market, the food and also the heat!!! My favorite food was ayam percek (I hope I spell it correctly), different type of sweets and also noodles!!! Soto Ayam, Mee Rebus Jawa and also Mee Goreng Indian!! says Jin Hooi of Smell & Taste Are My Memory. The recipe she like to share with us is, Indian Mee Goreng / Indian Fried Noodles
