Here's a fully-planned Iftar party menu with delicious recipes to avoid all the fuss of putting together a great show!
Kebabs are an integral part of a quintessential iftar spread. For your iftar party, you can try making the ever-so delectableboti kebabs. The intensely marinated mutton pieces can either be baked or grilled. These kebabs make for a delicious snack. You can also try your hands at these sumptuous brain cutlets. Juicy and tender patties made of goat's brain and a host of eclectic masalas.
It is said that Prophet Mohammad broke his fast with three dates, and since then dates have become an important part of the fast breaking ritual and is often seen in various iftar delicacies too. This year, give your dates an interesting spin with the recipe of stuffed dates with blue cheese. Sweet, creamy and appetising, this is nothing like anything you have had before.
For drinks you can opt for something that is both traditional and summery. Royal falooda, could fit the bill perfectly. A refreshing rose-flavoured drink topped with home-made falooda. You can also make fresh, homemade and soothing phalse ka sharbat, the delectable summer quencher made with goodness of phalsa berries.
Iftar is as much about its rich meaty delicacies as it is about its flavoursome desserts. For the sweet endings, we suggest this lip-smackingshahi tukda made by dousing pieces of bread in fragrant condensed milk. Top them up with nuts, cardamom and dry fruits of your choice and enjoy. If you are in a mood to experiment, you can try making the Turkish Ramadan delight baklava too. The crispy and crunchy dessert is made with layers of filo pastry, that is laced with butter and filled with a delectable layer of chopped pistachios. Baked until golden, the flaky pastries are then soaked in rose-flavoured sugar syrup. For those who wish to keep it slightly simple and quick can try their hands at phirni. The scrumptious and fragrant milk and rice-based dessert topped with generous layers of chopped dry and fresh fruits.
Ramzan Mubarak everybody!
