Ramadan 2020



Assalamu alaikum 


So another year and ramadan is upon us ..but this ramadan is different as we all have to stay home ...no praying in he masjids ... no community iftars .... no family and friends coming together .... but one thing it does have is time ... time to reflect on ourselves ...and a time to get closer to Allah ... we can only hope that by doing this Allah will lift this virus and show us how to become better 

As for food and what to cook this year will be the same as most years ... i no longer make large amounts of food ...i like to keep it simple.... i will have some soup also know as chourba .... some days i make boreak and other days i make my version of a sausage roll but with chicken and some salad and thats it 

Ramadan isnt about how full we can make our stomachs it about learning and growing ..about feeling how those who are without food feel ..its about the body fixing its self ... its about restraint and will power 




This is an example of my version of a sausage  roll..... these were made a few years ago as i dont have any recent pics of the ones i make now ...but in shaa Allah i will make some and take pics and give my filling recipe too

so for now i leave you with saha ftourkum and may Allah bless your ramadan

Pocasi/ split green pea soup

Asalamu alikum Well it sure has been a long time since i posted so i thought let me share this Pocasi recipe with you while i remember This soup is made from split green peas first i wash the peas and then add them to my pot (i used a pressure cooker) i added onion ... garlic..... i diced up carrots ...courgettes...and potato into  really small bits and added to the pot i also added black pepper....salt ...cumin...and razel hanut.... fill with water and placed lid on  and allowed to cook about 30 to 40 mins in total ... then let the pressure out and open then  stir.... if you need more water add and allow to cook towards the end add some tomato puree and allow to thicken up a little .... when i make this i do not use oil and i should say that this type of soup will continue to thicken and even the next day you will need to add more water to thin out ... but masha`allah is a really nice soup
