** This post has been sponsored by Vita Coco Coconut Water** Over the last few years, we’ve seen a real change in the way Muslims eat during Ramadan and there has been a shift to less fried foods and more grilled items, fruits in place of rich desserts, salads and a lot more healthy options. […]
Okay, okay, I’m guilty of being in the deep-fried Ramadan party but I can’t help it. Deep fried oreos, deep fried Korean chicken tenders – guilllttyyy. BUT I decided to change things up and make oven baked buffalo chicken wings smothered in a bright red Buffalo sauce.
As the clock ticks by, I hear you (well, your stomach) thinking “what’s for iftar?”. How about something sweet, something spicy, and something most definitely crunchy. Something like these Korean fried chicken tenders with a side of creamy gochujang mayonnaise – now that’s an iftar worth drooling about.
Make the most of the lovely sunshine before the weather change – typical London weather – and indulge in this refreshing and creamy mango panna cotta. It is fairly easy to make and once you nail it, you can swap out mango for coffee, strawberry and other fruits.
I’m a sucker for banana bread, especially in times of comfort – like now! I love it toasted with a slab of butter melting all over it or a dollop of creamy vanilla ice cream. I’ll even have it cold straight from the fridge. Heck, even Aadam loves a nibble here and there.
As the weather starts to warm up, the only thing I look forward to after a long day of fasting is a big frothy glass of falooda with ALL the trimmings. Yes, sev, ice cream, lots of rose syrup – the works!
