During Ramadan, there is too much emphasis on non-veg food, be it during Iftar or dinner time that unlike the other days, you crave for something that has no frills attached! Just a simple meal of puttu and kadala curry is what I crave for, but unfortunately lentils are not known to do much good to an empty stomach! Hehe… Sometimes, all you need is to have a simple salad just like the below with a couple of glasses of water and you wish to be done! But alas, you need to eat something heavier so that you have the energy for the 15+ long hour fasts… However, InShaAllah once done, we are already considering a dinner option of more soups and salads, so this easy one is definitely going to grace our tables more often!
