Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, or the Hijri calendar based on the lunar cycle, which began in AD622 when Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina.
As we are getting closer to Ramadan, we have compiled a list of 10 recipes that everyone must have during Ramadan.
1. Indian Fish Curry
This fiery fish curry is just what you need. It is made with kokum, coconut oil, spices, curry leaves and loads of red chilly. This dish features Rohu in a spicy and tangy marinade made with turmeric powder, fish masala and mustard oil.
2. Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken
These are served in every restaurant in the Middle East. You can easily make them at home and make them taste just as good, if not better. Don’t substitute sour cream for the yogurt, as the yogurt is a meat tenderizer.
This is the soup that Moroccans traditionally use to break the fast every night of Ramadan. Season with salt, pepper, mint leaves and cinnamon to taste.
4. Baba Ghanoush
A roasted eggplant dip or spread. Delicious served with pita or vegetables, alongside hummus or on its own!
5. Chicken Biryani
This is a delicious Pakistani/Indian rice dish which is often reserved for very special occasions such as weddings, parties, or holidays such as Ramadan. It has a lengthy preparation, but the work is definitely worth it.
6. Fava Bean Breakfast Spread
A deliciously seasoned fava bean, onion, and tomato dip recipe! Traditionally served with pita bread for breakfast in Egypt.
7. Pasta with Yogurt Sauce
This is a Middle Eastern adaptation using any pasta–fusilli, elbow macaroni, penne, shells, etc. It is just as tasty eaten cold or warm, and is a quick fix for a hurry up meal. Sahtain!–to your health!
8. Pomegranate Stew with Chicken (Khoresh Fesenjan)
Chicken, onions, finely processed walnuts, and pomegranate juice are simmered to perfection. The sauce should be as thick as a good chili. Serve with saffron steamed basmati rice. Enjoy!
9. Al Kabsa – Traditional Saudi Rice and Chicken
This was the first Arabic dish I ever made and it turned out extremely delicious, a new favorite! Serve Al Kabsa with a fresh mixed cucumber, carrot, lettuce, and tomato salad — preferably with a little lime vinaigrette.
10. Refreshing Lentil Salad
Using colorful vegetables makes for a light salad with a beautiful presentation. Garnish with sliced hard-boiled eggs and serve with crusty baguettes.
