EID UL FITR 1440/ 2019
A cheese ball and savoury crackers from Eid. 
The crackers were all naturally colored and flavoured:
Green: spinach purée and parsley
Yellow: turmeric and thyme
Orange: red pepper paste and cayenne pepper
Pink/red: tomato powder and basil
Unfortunately, since these crackers were made whilst I was fasting, and I couldn't taste, I was a little conservative with the salt and flavours. They could have been a little stronger. ...
...
CRACKER RECIPE:
250 g butter
2 1/2 cups flour
Salt & pepper
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup cold milk
Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the seasoning. Rub the butter into the flour, until it resembles bread crumb. Whisk the egg with the milk. Add the milk mixture to the flour to make a dough. It should just come together. Do not knead. Wrap the dough up and chill for 30 minutes. 
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Divide the dough into four parts, and colour and flavour. (See above). Roll out thinly. Cut with a cookie cutter or cookie stamp. Place on a paper lined oven tray. Bake for approx 15-20 minutes. Once done, you may need to leave them in a low oven to crisp up.  The cheese knife and fork set was a gift from @ayshl 
The crystal cake stand was given to me by @zeenatlaher ...

RAMADAN 1440/ 2019
DAY 26
I'm not sure about you all, but even on the coldest nights we crave something icy cold after Iftar. Last night, I selected one of the green tea varieties from this beautiful @yswara tea box. This refreshing iced tea was made by simply steeping the leaves for a short while, then adding some simple syrup and a squeeze of lemon. Poured over lots of ice, I loved the refreshing taste! 
This beautifully lacquered, white velvet-lined tea box  was a Mother's Day/ Eid gift to me from my Son, @muhammedlaher17
Thank you Muhammed! 
Yswara, a  high-end purveyor of fine teas has some of the most beautifully packaged products.
@yswara If you're reading this, please, please, please, open a boutique in a safer area, so that we can enjoy visiting your store. Also service was a little disappointing. Since one cannot purchase directly off the website, it was quite a palaver to place an order, and with the website suggesting that one should email them, it was frustrating to note that my Son's email was not responded to. ...

DAY 19
As a child I have happy memories of my Mom making these meat filled rolls during Ramadan. 
Filled with steak, they were always a welcome addition to our table. Whilst eating habits evolve, some things just have to remain the same. There are two things from my childhood that I simply will not change, these rolls are one of them, and the other is cucumber sandwiches. We all have special traditions, then when we get married and have kids, we create our own. I'm really happy that whilst my Girls have created their own traditions these favourites have become a part of their lives too. 
A few days ago, I felt almost affronted when my daughter Sumaiya asked me if I have a recipe for a chicken filled roll! 
This is one recipe that I will not change or adapt ever. It is made with a beautiful brioche-like bread. 
This is my heritage...
This is my legacy to my children...

Homemade pretzels with a cheese sauce...
I decided to try a recipe that I came across on a blog, and was so disappointed! Whilst they didn’t taste awful, the texture was way too fluffy and soft and they lacked that distinct pretzel chewiness. I don’t know what I was thinking! This was not how a pretzel should look or taste! I should have stuck with my old tried and tested pretzel recipe! 
Oh well, next time...
The cheese sauce though, was terrific! ...

Halfway through the month already! I cannot believe how time is flying by! 
Sawsan, from @chefindisguise challenged me on Saturday to prepare a dish out of leftover ingredients. Since I wasn't able to contribute at the weekend, I chose instead to do it today. On Saturday, when I made the spinach and Brie roulade, I purchased some fresh mozzarella balls, a large bag of basil, and I made enough pesto to feed an army. I also had some leftover smoked turkey lurking in the freezer. Feeling quite guilty about the ingredients, since the fresh one's don't have a long shelf life, I decided to put them to use in this 'roulade'. I melted the mozzarella balls, then spread the melted mass out on a surface lined with plastic. Covered the cheese with plastic wrap, then proceeded to rolled it into a thin sheet. I layered a few ingredients over and rolled it up into a 'swissroll'. I'll post step by step detailed instructions on my stories shortly. 
This was a lovely change from the typical Ramadan foods, that usually uses a dough of some sort. 
Also it is gluten free! 
I hope that this post will inspire you to creatively use up leftovers, thus reducing food wastage.
Thank you @chefindisguise for the tag. 
I challenge @naseema_laher_wellness_coach @bateekh.w.jebneh  and @_mommy_b to prepare their Iftar from leftovers.

This afternoon I was gifted this gorgeous tray of Turkish baklava by the beautiful Betul @betul_fit 
Not only was this lovely to look at, but the baklava was absolutely delicious too! The tray consisted of two types of baklava, one being a square filled with mixed nuts, and the other a cigar shape filled with kadayfi. 
Oh, and did I mention that these yummy treats are refined sugar free, so you can indulge this Eid without any guilt!

DAY 12
This roulade has quite possibly been one of the most requested recipes on my page. The reason why I didn't post was because I had no recipe! Today as I was making it, I measured all my ingredients, so finally, I can share this one with you! 
This recipe is so versatile. You can get creative and use any filling, including left overs. Let your imagination run wild! If you make this, please tag me so that I can see your creations. ...
For the dough I used a half quantity of my pita recipe that I posted two days ago. I also used a homemade pistachio and kale pesto instead of a regular basil one. ...
...
SPINACH, BRIE AND PESTO ROULADE:

1/2 quantity of pita dough
1/3 cup pesto (basil or any pesto of your choice)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 loosely packed cups baby spinach
A handful of basil leaves
1/4 cup pitted black olives, chopped
1 1/2 cups mozzarella, grated
125 g Brie cheese, sliced 
10 sundried tomatoes
6-8 fresh baby tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
Poppy seeds for sprinkling over

After the first proofing of the dough, roll it out thinly. Place the dough on a baking paper lined  sheet pan. Cover, and set aside in a warm place for approx 15 minutes. 
Meanwhile, combine the sour cream and the pesto. 
Preheat the oven to 200°C. 
Spread the pesto mixture evenly over the dough. Top with the mozzarella, then the basil, spinach, olives, tomatoes and Brie. Season well. Carefully roll up with the help of  the baking paper. Cover loosely and allow to proof for about 20-30 minutes. Brush with the egg, sprinkle with poppy seeds, and place in the oven. Bake until the bread is just starting to brown, then reduce the temperature to 180°C, and continue to bake until the roulade is a deep golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, before slicing. 
Enjoy! ...

RAMADAN 1440/ 2019
DAY 10
Ten days of Ramadan have passed by in a flash! Alhamdulillah for our health and the Barakah on our tables...
This evening's pita, labneh and three types of dukkah went down a treat. I served the pita with some homemade pistachio dukkah as well as pomegranate za'atar and some Madinah dukkah. I also had some creamy labneh, olive oil, date vinegar and my favourite, pomegranate molasses. The pita recipe, comes courtesy of my Mom, who incidently, is a bread baker extraordinaire! I love branding my pita with a fretwork design. It just makes them look extra special! 
PITA BREAD
RECIPE CREDIT:
MY MOM

One sachet yeast (10grams)
1 tsp sugar
1 tbls flour
50 ml water
Mix above. Leave in a warm place to rise. It must rise a lot.

4 cups flour, sifted
4 scant tbls sugar
1 tsp salt
Mix above.

A little more than half cup milk
Same amount of tap water
Same amount of boiling water
A little over 1/4 cup oil
Mix together. 
Add the oil mixture, together with the yeast mixture to flour.
Mix well. 
Knead by hand. 
Knead, using a bit of extra flour to clean hands. Dip hands in oil and continue kneading. Slap the dough. Continue dipping hands in oil and sprinkling flour. 
Dough must be smooth, stretchy. Must still be soft but not very sticky. 
Grease a bowl, place the dough in it and leave to rise in a warm place, covered with plastic wrap. 
Let rise. Once risen. Can be punched down or shaped.

For pita: 
Make balls. Roll into circles. Place on a baking sheet. Leave to rise. 
In the oven: bake at 220 Celsius. Once hot. Place pita in oven for about 5 mins. Will form nicer pockets in the oven.

On the stove: put a bit of ghee in a hot pan. Not too high. Place pita top side down first. Drizzle ghee on pita. Turn when golden. Can press down slightly so it balloons. Keep on turning until golden.

RAMADAN 1440/ 2019
Day 9
Deliciously creamy Turkish Sütlaç is a dessert that is so close to my heart...
Served well chilled, I usually use a blowtorch to scorch the surface, but this time I simply sprinkled some cinnamon over. Both ways are so good! 
You'll find the recipe for these rice puddings on my blog. I'll share the link on my profile. ...

In my opinion, few things are as satisfying as a slice of baklava...
This is my idea of comfort food! ...

RAMADAN 1440/ 2019
DAY 7
Whilst going through my phone gallery this morning, I came across a picture of some Kaek bil zayt that I had made more than two years ago, that I had forgotten to post. I first made this bread when the sweet Sawsan, @chefindisguise posted it about 5 -6 years ago, I think. Thereafter I made it again about 2 years ago, when Sawsan kindly gave me permission to repost the recipe. For some reason, I totally forgot about it until today! Solving my dilemma as to what to serve at  Iftar tonight, I quickly set about preparing  this fragrant Middle Eastern flat bread. Rolled out into flat disks over a special Kaek mould, they are easy to prepare, and paired with some hummus (because it's #internationalhummusday today), a salad made with tomatoes and some fried halloumi, this was a wonderfully satisfying meal. According to Sawsan, these bread are of Palestinian origin. 
UPDATE: Sawsan has kindly allowed me to repost the recipe, so will post it tmro, InshaAllah. ...
