Practicing a Good Habit during Ramadan
Allhumdulliah…..we have already completed first 10 days of fasting. In mosque whole Quran is read and completed during the Ramadan night prayer’s which is called ‘Taraweeh’. I feel day and night are short during Ramadan. The elders in the family say practice a good habit during the Holy month of Ramadan and keep it going for rest of your life….which I always do….
Praying five times a day, reciting Quran, listening to the holy words preached by elder’s in the family, shopping, cooking, inviting friends and relatives to Iftaar parties, attending Iftaar parties, feasting on delicacies and planning for the big day Eid is all part of Ramadan celebrations. It is said that if a man lives an average life span than he will experience Ramadan in all seasons…..
Fluids play an important role during fasts….to keep us hydrated from sunrise to sunset….it is important to take lots of fluids upon ending the fast. So apart from water…Sherbets (drinks) like lemonade, roohhafza, lassi etc. are included in the menu. By keeping this in mind, I have come across with this healthy and yummy lassi recipe, which is refreshing and rejuvenating…….
As we all know oats which are available in specialty food store are best in lessening the bad cholesterol from the body whereas cumin/jeera helps in solving the indigestion/constipation problems and coriander leaves adds nice taste to the lassi whereas dry rose petals give an soothing look to the lassi. So here is a simple recipe to boost up your energy levels and keep you rocking during the fasts….moreover it is easy to make too…..so try this to beat the heat and to keep yourself hydrated.
