As our holy month has approached upon us we are much aware of our duties and we cannot afford to forget how blessed  we are to live through this month again ... ameen .
This is a stage where i desperately wanted to be back.  How much i miss blogging . And being the month  of ramadan , a good and humble way to be back. I have been into baking and this time intense baking cakes and pastries , to be precise. Starting my own business was a tough ride and especially when the town is loaded with home bakers. Inshahaallah i will be uploading the delicacies here.
This is an all time favorite easy sweet and something my family loves to dig in after a spicy meal.



Actually carrot halwa is  pretty decade old recipe. My love for sweets will never die away . But i check on my calories once in a while to be on the safer side . Thank god  they are cleaned away as soon as i set it on the table.

Banana roll ups | Ramadan snack


Time just flies and we already into the middle of Ramadan.
Our goal is to fast the month of Ramadan for spiritual purification and out of obedience to the orders of Allah SWT.  However, verse 2:184 ends with the statement that

                            “for to fast is to do good unto yourselves - if you but knew it.” 

Out of God’s mercy, it turns out that when we fast, we are not just gaining spiritual benefit, but doing good unto ourselves in the physical realm as well.  So much so, in fact, that fasting has become a new vogue in medicine to help people maintain good health and longevity.  This lecture series uses the most recent medical literature to do a fairly in-depth exploration of the health benefits of fasting.  These benefits include improvements in weight, glycemic control and reductions in the risk of diabetes, decreased cardiovascular disease risk factors, improvements in immune system function, decreased cancer risk, and better neurological and brain health.
This ramadan is going to be just simpke and easy snacks.  Keeping it and light and healthy to the brim. Here i have preferred to get the best way to attain simplicity with just four main ingredients.
Try it out .. its great for a sweat slider .


Ingredients


1 ripe banana ( plaintans )
8 large slices of bread
1/4  teaspoon crushed cardamom .
2 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs
3 tablespoon milk
A pinch salt
2 tablespoon ghee

Method

Mix the eggs ,milk ,sugar ,cardamom powders and salt into a thin batter and keep aside .
Slice the banana length wise and shallow fry  in ghee .
Flatten the bread slices .
Note that the banana  slices should be the same size as the flatten bread slices.
Place the ghee fried banana slice on the single flattened bread .
Sprinkle some sugar and roll them up .
Now dip the rolls into the egg batter and shallow  fry to slightly golden color in ghee .
Sprinkle some sugar on the hot rolls .
