TIP FROM ME:
If in Iftar, we are eating heavy snack (fried food or chaat), we skip dinner and have a glass of cooling buttermilk or no-sugar juice or warm glass of milk before going to bed. Doing so will give little rest to the tummy and we can have simple seher/suhoor in the morning.
I was so confused about what to prepare for my kids because we cannot eat outside due this pandemic, these recipes are so easy and delicious. Great work and thank you for recipes , keep going and I would revisit this site.
