Ramadan, the holy month is here — A month of blessings and forgiveness. Ramadan is that time of the year when family togetherness, fasting, patience, and duas make it beautiful.
It takes me back to childhood when Ramadan was made all the more special by Mummy. Mum would make the most delicious sweet treats, exquisitely and carefully prepared dishes. Thanks to Didi for remaking some of Mum’s recipes and bringing back those fond memories 🙂
Here are a few Kheema recipes that you can prepare for your family.
