ARTICLE BY : Arushi Sakhuja


The holiest month of the year for Muslims, Ramadan is a 30-day long festival for fasting, worshipping, celebrating and spending time with friends and family. According to tradition, people start their day before sunrise with a lavish meal and fast till sunset, breaking their fast with a meal known as Iftar. It is this custom of warmly welcoming loved ones into your home for a nourishing meal after a long day of fasting that adds warmth and a spark to the occasion. And nothing justifies the phrase ‘more the merrier’ better than the occasion of Iftar.  While Ramadan meals may not always be gourmet meals, who says they can’t be sumptuous and mouth-watering?

The festival all set to start on the 12th of April 2021 till 12th May 2021. With days ticking by, it will be here before you know it and much like any other festival, food plays a major role. We all know how grocery runs can get overwhelming during Ramadan, and prepping your kitchen before it begins is a great way to shed off some stress.  So it’s time to fine-tune your kitchen productivity now and make meal prep a little easier. To help you channel your creative side in the kitchen here’s our handpicked edit of kitchen essentials that’ll ensure you serve up some lip-smacking dishes.
