Assalamo alykum & welcome to the first Chapter of Ramadan – An Event to Share. Today our guest is beautiful blogger Madelon , who blogs at WayMadi.nl. Her food is reflection of her different roots. A perfect word would be a multi culture foodie. Today she is sharing with us Sudanese Baba Ganoush.
Assalamu ‘alaykoum all, I’m delighted to write this article about my Ramadan experiences. As I am an converted, or as I prefer to say, returned muslimah this will be my 10th Ramadan in shaa’ Allah.
My family is a very mixed composition, so our Ramadan tables are not so conventional as I often see in my social media timelines. My parents gave me roots from Indonesia, Portugal and the Netherlands Antiles. My husband is also from mixed origin.
We prefer our meals to be nourishing and balanced to provide sufficient nutrition for the next day of fasting and to supplement the ones lost in de past day. We live in the Netherlands where the fasting days are very long alhamdulillah. Due to chronically illness I am not allowed to fast those long days so the past years I’m taking the major role of making iftar meals for my husband and possible visitors. I also prep a lot each year so my kitchen time is not more then average which leaves me time for ramadan activities with our toddler. Continue reading →

Mogre Ka Sharbat is a fragrant & soothing sharbat made from mogra/ indian jasmine for summers
While the summery breeze in the night carried along the fragrance of mogra from the side window making the atmosphere soothing over the daily stress & emotions. The morning they would be adorned as jewels in the ears. My ammi loved the fragrance of mogra. When we shifted to a new place from the hush bush of the city life, she made sure to plant the mogra plant on her side window of her room. She loved these fragrant flowers so much that her ears would be adorned with these beautiful flowers. She always said it gave her a soothing effect.
It is said the when the person goes from your life all you have is memories. And these memories become such a precious treasure to hold on each one. You try to revisit & relive them by associating to different things. Mogra/ Indian Jasmine for me holds for me one such memory of my beautiful mother with a ever smiling face. She loved her garden and was always worried about it till her last days. When Mayuri from Mayuri’s Jikoni, asked bloggers to send one recipe special to mothers or want to dedicate to her for mother’s day, I thought why not a recipe made from her favorite flower mogra. Mogre ka sharbat is very soothing drink with delicate flavors. Happy Mother’s Day.
