The holy month of Ramadan is almost over and preparations are at an all-time high in the Muslim community. Also referred to as Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Muslims around the world observe it as a month of fasting, prayer, and self-reflection. During the month of Ramadan, people abstain from food and water throughout the day and break their fast through evening prayers and iftar. It is said that fasting helps people to connect with the less fortunate and to empathize and restore faith in God’s blessings. This year Ramadan is starting from April 2, 2022.
A typical day of Ramadan begins in the morning with a meal called ‘Sehri’ or ‘Suhur’. In fact, it is rich in mouthwash foods that you must eat before sunrise to replenish and help keep you hydrated throughout the day. This is why health experts recommend keeping healthy and nutritious foods throughout the day during sehri. According to consultant nutritionist Rupali Dutt, “For sehri, one should include adequate fluids, carbs and fiber in their diet. This will help you to fast for about 12 hours a day without food and water.”
With this in mind, we have come up with some very simple, healthy and nutritious recipes that can be prepared for Sehri. Let’s take a look.
