Delightful delectables…

Preparing for iftari…. a stall at one of karachi’s premier bakeries!


At this time of day, (3:30 PM), in a state of fasting without any sehri (or dinner for that matter) this picture is enough to test the faith to the limits!!

    hmmm … now if you add the unhygienic cooking and selling conditions, it’s no so appetising, is it? i ate dhai phulkis from a ‘premier’ outlet and just missed out on chewing on some handsome flies.

    Looks great mansoor, but I always prefer the home-made iftaari .. the best thing is to buy these samosas and roll in an ‘unfried’ form freeze em at home and fry em daily. thats what we do at home..

    Great Pic. I like the gloves part in it. Better if they were on both hands. Seems we are finally learning something.

    Indeed it tests our faith in the state of fasting and specially when one is miles and miles away from this all oil-soaked iftari (even though great)…..always hungry for this kind of food =)

    hhmmm Please dont post these kind of mouth watering pict. as I am fasting and we dont have these kind of mazaydar ready made food everywhere in US.

    home made ifftari is best.

    Home Made Iftari is best…you know what you put in will come out…eeooowww…add some flies to garnish if you wish…

    Although homemade stuff is best for health but who cares abt that in any case : ))

    nothing beats bacon, sausage and pancakes for iftari in america.

  15. Jamal Shamsi (unregistered) on October 5th, 2006 @ 11:23 am

    CHILMADEEN – What is BACON ? do u get HALAL BACON???

    Sausage & Pencake makes sense, but enlighten me with BACON and HALAL ONE please !

  16. faisal (unregistered) on October 5th, 2006 @ 12:15 pm

    it could be turkey bacon……

  17. Riz (unregistered) on October 5th, 2006 @ 10:16 pm

    No I think thats what is known as turkey ham. Not really ham. You’ll find this available on the menu in many ‘muslim countries’ esp. the middle east.

  18. RIz (unregistered) on October 5th, 2006 @ 10:18 pm

    Halal suasages and ‘ham’ are disgusting. You would probably feed this to an animal, then again maybe not. It is processed meat of the lowest quality.

    United king’s D samosas are good *the second tray in pic*

    Mr.CHILAMDEEN……..””” bacon, sausage and pancakes for iftari….!!!”””
    Mister…u dont even belong to this post,better join any US metropolitan Blog..u r so hyped with westernization that you even forgot that BACON is not HALAL..!!!

    for Karachiites…yup our UK(United King) is the most Happening and crowded place in Ramadan,selling really mouth watering snacks,even thru out the year.
    out here abroad…really miss UK,as we can only get teeny tiny “indian samboosas” closer to that…

    Not to forget the brown sauce with pancake.
