First Iftar dinner -Ramadan 2012
Wrote "Ramazan' (Turkish spelling for the month of Ramadan) with little stoned and she carefully covered the whole table with sets of 3 stones of other kind:)
Upon littign the canled she even sang " Happy Ramadan" song which does not exist:)
THis is not a muslim or Turkish tradition but I just wanted make first iftar of Raadan more colorful and more fun for my 4.5-year old.
Our menu was vegetarian, hence light!
Red lentil soup
Potato- cauliflower dish
Home-made chocolate pudding (recipe coming soon!)
Dates, Turkish delight (lokum) and walnuts as iftariyelik (nuts,dates, dried fruits etc that are eaten as light/ healthy snacks to break fast or during the main courses)
