Best 4 Delicious and Easy Ramadan Recipes 2020

Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, not even consuming water. Food takes on a special significance. Before dawn prayers Muslims eat suhoor, a thick morning meal big sufficient to get them daily.

Meat meals are popular throughout Ramadan. Skewered vegetable and meat dishes called kebabs are normal from the middle-east and curry recipes certainly really are a mainstay in south east Asia.
At night stems iftar, or perhaps the breaking of the quick .

This meal is usually a communal occasion. Dessert is an important part of iftar and at the Bengali loved ones, mishti is king. From the Middle East, desserts lean towards the side that is left handed and yogurts are a common method to greatly help digestion and trendy the stomach. We've rounded up our beloved Ramadan recipes for the big Eid-al-Fitr feasts and iftar, as well as for suhoor .

Start the marinade 30 minutes to an hour before cooking; if you marinate too early, the acid from the lemon juice will cook the kebabs beforehand.
1. Shish Kebabs Recipe

Yield: serves 4
Time: 1 hour


  • 12 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp. ground black pepper, plus more
  • 2 tsp. crushed saffron
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken tenders, halved crosswise
  • 8 large button mushrooms
  • 4 plum tomatoes, cored
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1-inch rounds
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • Lavash or pita, for serving


  1. Stir together juice, oil, salt, pepper, saffron, garlic, and onions in a bowl; add chicken, and toss to coat. Chill for 30 minutes. Build a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill, heat a gas grill to medium-high, or heat broiler to high. Season chicken and vegetables with salt and pepper; skewer chicken and vegetables lengthwise on metal skewers. Grill chicken and vegetables, turning often and basting with butter, until vegetables are soft and charred, about 18-20 minutes for vegetables, and chicken is cooked through and slightly charred, about 10 minutes. Serve with lavash.

2. Shami Kebabs (Spiced Ground Beef Patties)

The recipe for these kebabs, which can also be made with lamb or goat, is adapted from Charmaine O'Brien's Recipes from an Urban Village: A Cookbook from Basti Hazrat Nizamuddin.

Yield: makes 28 Patties


  • 3 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 large red onion, 1/3 minced, 1/3 thinly sliced
  • 12 cup chana dal (yellow split peas), rinsed, soaked 30 minutes, and drained
  • 13 cup roughly chopped mint
  • 12 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 2 cloves garlic, mashed into a paste
  • 2 small green Thai chiles or 1 serrano, minced
  • 1 (2") piece ginger, peeled, 1/2 mashed into a paste, 1/2 minced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • 12 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. red chile powder, such as cayenne
  • 12 cup ghee
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Heat oil in a 6-qt. saucepan over medium-high. Cook cumin seeds and half the minced onion until golden, 6–8 minutes. Add dal, mint, turmeric, garlic, chiles, ginger paste, salt, and 1½ cups water; boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook until dal is mushy and mixture is slightly dry, about 1 hour. Let cool and transfer to a food processor. Add beef, half the cilantro, the garam masala, chile powder, and salt; purée into a thick paste.
  2. Stir remaining minced onion and cilantro with minced ginger in a bowl. Using wet hands, divide beef mixture into twenty-eight 1½ oz. balls. Working with 1 ball at a time, press index finger into center to create a pocket. Place ½ tsp. onion mixture inside; pinch edges to seal. Roll into a ball; flatten into a patty. Melt ⅓ cup ghee in a 12″ skillet over medium-high. Working in batches and adding more ghee as needed, cook patties, flipping once, until cooked through and crisp, 4–6 minutes; serve with sliced onion and lime wedges.

3. Roast Chicken with Onion and Sumac Flatbread

Tart sumac balances sweet caramelized onions in a roast chicken and flatbread dish traditionally baked in a wood-fired oven called a taboon.

Yield: serves 4


  • 12 cups flour, plus more
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 34 cup water, heated to 115°
  • 12 tsp. sugar

  1. Whisk flour and salt in a bowl. Combine water, sugar, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a hook; let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. With the motor running, slowly add flour mixture; mix until dough forms, about 3–4 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap; set in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  2. Divide dough into 2 balls. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet; cover with a damp towel and set aside 45 minutes. Toss chicken with 13 cup oil, 3 tbsp. sumac, half each the allspice and cinnamon, 13 of the onions, plus salt and pepper in a bowl; set aside 20 minutes.
  3. Heat oven to 425°. Heat a 12" heatproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper; cook, flipping once, until browned, 6–8 minutes. Arrange skin side up, and add stock; bake until chicken is cooked, 25–30 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate; keep warm. Transfer pan drippings to a bowl; set aside.
  4. Add remaining oil to skillet; place over medium heat. Add remaining onions; cook until golden, 25–30 minutes. Stir in remaining sumac, allspice, and cinnamon, plus salt and pepper; transfer to a bowl. Wipe skillet clean and melt butter over medium-high heat. Add almonds; cook until golden, 3–5 minutes.
  5. Increase oven to 475°. Working with 1 ball dough at a time, roll into a 10" disk about 18" thick. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush dough with reserved pan drippings and spread half the onion mixture over dough, leaving a 12" border. Bake until bread is puffed and golden brown, 8–10 minutes. To serve, cut bread into wedges and place on 4 plates. Arrange chicken over flatbread, sprinkle with almonds, and drizzle with any remaining pan juices.
