    BOILED EGG CUTLETS
    Boil and mash potatoes with salt and pepper.
    Boil eggs and cut into quarters
    Grind together corriander leaves and green chillies with salt, using very very little water.
    Method: Flatten a ball of potato on the palm of your hands. Spread green chutney over it. Lay one piece of egg yolk side down and bind it securely into a cutlet. Use semolina liberally to bind the outside. Leave it in the fridge for 1/2 an hour. Deep fry in medium hot oil and have it with sweet tamarind chutney.

    Sweet tamarind chutney: Tamarind, jaggery, red chilli powder, lime juice, salt, black salt, roasted and ground zeera powder. Mix everything. Not too thick, it has to be a bit watery. Enjoy.

    Hello friends, Ramzan Mubarak to all of you.

    One of the famous Iftari dish is Haleem, I know it is tough to make, but you can try once a while.

    Another one is Dahi-Vada, it is mouth watering. I'll post the recipe and pictures when I make it. :)

    Salaam Alaikum 6teenpearls, Here is my version of DAHI VADAS.
    1 cup moong dal
    1 cup urad dal
    Soak the dals overnight, next day drain and grind with 2 green chillies and 1" piece of ginger, to a fine paste, adding very little water.
    Then add salt pepper and a very tiny pinch of baking powder an whisk the batter with a egg beater.
    I drop a blob of batter in a cup of cold water. If it comes up then my batter s done, and the vadas will be soft.
    Deep fry and remove the vadas. Take slightly warm water and add chaat masala and soak the vadas. Leave it for some time and then squeeze all the water gently.
    YOGURT: whisk yogurt, add milk to attain the desired consistency. Add sugar, pinch of salt, black salt, roasted and ground zeera powder, and red chilli powder.
    Pour yogurt on top of vadas and decorate with hara dhania and sweet chutney!!! Enjoy.
