Just because we’re stuck in lockdown, doesn’t mean our routines are identical. The morning starts quite early for many with office calls and deliverables, while others stretch work late into the night. Depending on you, your iftar should be dedicated to making your taste buds and body happy. Which one of the following do you need?

 

1. HALEEM FOR A DELICIOUS, RELAXING MEAL

 

Haleem seems to be the one dish you must-have during Ramadan. Since we are unable to go buy from the nearest shop we can just make it ourselves. Homemade haleem can be just as good, if not better. You can also decide whether you want mutton, beef, or chicken haleem. You will be needing a few types of daals and ground spices.

 

2. LIGHT FRUITS AND VEGGIES FOR AFTER-IFTAR WORKERS

 

Salad may not be a common choice for iftar but after a long day of fasting, this might just be what you need to regain and retain your energy. Salads are fairly easy to make and you can use common ingredients like carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and lettuce. As for the fruits, you can use apples, bananas, pineapples, and watermelon.

 

3. DOI CHIRA TO COOL YOUR STOMACH

 

An authentic Bangladeshi food and an ideal choice for iftar during this warm summer. You can also add some pieces of apples and bananas to add flavor to it. Some even use honey as a topping. Consider it a cool shower for your tired stomach after a hard day!

 

4. EGGS AND PARATHA FOR A WHOLESOME MEAL

 

Here is another easy meal idea. You just cannot go wrong with eggs! You can either make plain paratha with eggs, stuffed egg paratha, or even bread omelet. The best part is any of these can be made within 10 minutes, even less.

 

5. DISH FOR THE PROTEIN LOVERS

 

Have you been working out? Then you’ll the extra protein and some carbs too. Most of us have Chola during Ramadan and it is highly nutritious. To boost up the flavor you can mix Chola with basmati or plain polau rice. It will be lighter than biriyani or tehari yet equally fulfilling.

 

Home-made dishes come with an extra special ingredient called to love and care. Enjoy these easy meal ideas and stay indoors. Happy Fasting!
