1. Dates And Milk
Dates and milk was favourite of our prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) in Ramzan. He used to eat some date with one small bowl of milk in Sehri (Suhur). Dates have lot of energy and it holds an assortment of vitamins incorporating A1, B1, B2, B3, B5 and C. In milk Vitamin A,D, E And K are present for a full balanced diet. You can also eat fresh curd!

There are many types of Pakoras available in Ramzan menu like Potato, Onion, Green Chili, Spinach, Cauliflower, etc. We love binging in Pakoras in Rainy season but in Ramzan they hold a different traditional value.
There is also Chane (groundnuts) which also holds a great value in the menu. There are variety of them like Black Chane, Kabuli Chane, Chane ki Dal, etc. They are made like a spicy and sour chat which is healthy and sometimes lightly fried with onions, tomato and spices.

This is my favorite of all. When you fast you obviously feel thirsty and tired because of the hot summers. At the time of Iftar, one drink you crave for is sharbat. There is a drink called Rooh Afza and I bet you’ve had it at least once. It is made by dissolving Rooh Afza with little sugar and water. It is served chilled. There’s another drink lemonade, which can be simply made by lemon. sugar and chilled water. Sharbat is essential specially for ending the fast!
These are the foods I eat during Ramzan and they provide me energy whole day! What are yours?
