On the Iftaar Table Part I
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
*This photo mini-series will give you an insight into what some of us are tucking into when it’s time to break our fast. If you’re intrigued by the idea of Muslims fasting why not try fasting for a day and having your very own iftaar? If you try it, let us know how you get on :)*
Some things that have been on my iftaar table over the last few days:
Dates- Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم used to break his fast with dates, so Muslims follow this tradition of his. An added bonus is that dates are yummy mashaAllah!
Fruit salad- nice and refreshing after 18 hours of fasting!
Strawberry lassi- I really wanted strawberry milkshake the other day, but opted for a healthier (no ice-cream!) yoghurt drink. Fresh strawberries, natural yoghurt, sugar to taste and a pinch of salt- all in the blender and you’re good to go.
Pitta pockets- The time to break our fast is quite late here in the UK so in my family we don’t tend to eat anything too heavy. Stir fry some chopped veg (oil, soy sauce, salt, chilli flakes) and make some home-made burgers/kebabs. Take a pitta bread, cut in half and fill each pocket with some veg and crumbled burger/kebab. The pic doesn’t do it justice- honestly they were good!
