Ramadan Recipes – Entrees for Ramadan or Iftar

Here is a collection of entrees that you can serve for Ramadan or for Iftar. Most of the recipes are curry based, you could serve these curries with roti, naan, pita bread, tortilla, chapati, orotti, pathiri, ottappam, appam, couscous, pasta etc.

In my family, we break the fast by having  fresh juice, dates and some snacks. After the Maghrib prayer (after sunset prayer), we have some kind of porridge or soup. I mostly feel full after having these, so I prefer to have dinner after the Taraweeh prayer. For dinner, usually rice based crepes like palaada, appam, Idiyappam, ottapam, orotti, pathiri or chapati will be served with chicken or fish curries.
