Bites Fil Beit Ramadan: Sodoor ferakh bel batates makhbooza – Baked chicken breast and potatoes

  /  August 5, 2013  /  Bites Fil Beit, Lifestyle  /  No Comments

Ramadan offers a whole new challenge to cooking Egyptian food. The breaking of the fast, iftar, is the main menu of the day and consists of an array of dishes. Traditionally the meal starts with juice, to prepare the stomach for the feast that is to come, and a savoury soup. Appetisers are up next, followed by a main course and a sweet dessert completes the meal.

Iftars are meant to be shared and inviting your close friends and family for a home-cooked dinner-cum-breakfast can be daunting. But not to worry; during the month we will be giving you suggestions for full menus for light meals because of the warm days, accompanied with a complete recipe for one of the dishes.
