While this might seem like a blessed arrangement, I find it too cumbersome. Besides, I’ve done so many iftars with family, extended family – mashaAllah – that now I’d like a few with just hubby and me. But alhamdolillah for family.
I decided on potato rolls and pizza.
I started with boiling potatoes and chicken separately.
For the rolls, I mixed finely chopped carrots, capsicum, shredded chicken, coriander and onion, black pepper, salt and red chilly flakes with the mashed potatoes.
Shaped them into little rolls.
Pizza toppings included capsicum, chicken, olives, tomatoes, onion, herbs, chilly flakes and of course cheese.
I dipped the rolls in egg, tossed them in the bread crumbs and dropped ‘em in the hot oil. Let me tell you, they were YUMM!
Pizza took 15 minutes and the house was smelling like Italian heaven.
I remember as a child I always wanted the table full at iftar. It was all about quantity for me and I’d be on my mom’s toes to make that one more dish.
I now understand how difficult it is to run the kitchen single-handedly specially during Ramadan.
For yesterday’s iftar, it was definitely quality over quantity.
|Pizza and potato rolls. Hmm. Hmm. Good!|
