Assalam and hi all,
Ramadan has gone over half way, sadly. I thought I’d share what I have been cooking in Ramadaan for my family, should you need an inspiration for iftaar menu. Most of the pictures I have posted in halaalife FB and IG hence the captions were derived from. So here’s the compilation:
