      Background: Puerto Rico. Muslim country? Well, not technically. But do Muslims live there? Absolutely. This recipe is from Puerto Rico, and while the Muslim population there is small (only 10 out of every 1000 people), they have a distinct culture. How did Muslims end up in Puerto Rico? Most came from Palestine in the 1950s and 1960s. 
      Ingredients:
      • 3 1/4 cup coconut milk
      • 1/2 cup fresh coconut flakes (optional)
      • 2/3 cup arrowroot flour (yuca) or cornstarch
      • 5 sachet of stevia (Sweet Leaf Stevia)
      • 1 tsp orange water or rose water or vanilla
      • Cinnamon for garnish
      Instructions:
      • In a sauce pan mix together the cornstarch, sugar, and salt.
      • Whisk in the coconut milk and simmer over low to medium heat.
      • Stir constantly until the mixture is thoroughly cooked and thickens.
      • Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour pudding into individual dessert cups. If you have a problem with the mixture, use a hand blender to get uniform mixture.
      • Allow the pudding to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
      • Garnish with sprinkled ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick and/or toasted coconut flakes
      Note: the flower on top is for decoration. It is named "Forget Me Not," or Myosotis Sylvatica. The flower is great for relaxing, sleeping, weight loss, and for lower blood pressure!

      Background: Prophet Mohammed (SAW) recommended to break your fast with dates. Ever wonder why? Dates, as a food, have an incredibly high glycemic index. This means, when you eat them, your body gains energy very quickly. Not to mention, they're super delicious :-)

      Ingredients:

      • 3 Cups of pitted dates
      • 3 tbsp unsweetened raw cocoa powder
      • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
      • 1 tsp instant coffee
      • Chopped pistachios 

      Instructions:

      • Combine all (except pistachios) together in the food processor
      • Make round balls and roll it in any kind of nut (I used chopped pistachios)
      • You could even put sea salt in it....do random variations you can not go wrong :)

      Background: The United States is often thought of as a melting pot. This  recipe shows just that. While Cinnamon is an ancient spice that has its roots in India and Bangladesh, doughnuts are all-American! When you put these two diverse items together, you get something magically delicious -- Cinnamon Spice Doughnuts. 

      Ingredients
      • 1/2 cup (113 grams)
      • Melted butter 
      • 3 Large eggs
      • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
      • 1 Cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
      • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
      • 1/4 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
      • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
      • 1 1/2 Teaspoons baking powder
      • 2 Cups (226 grams) all-purpose flour
      • Oil (to fry the doughnuts)
      Instructions:
      • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla until thoroughly mixed
      • Mix in the sugars and spices until smooth
      • Fold in the baking powder and flour
      • You can roll the dough then cut circles or make small balls for frying the doughnuts
      • Once the doughnuts are fried roll them in powdered sugar (you can add a pinch of cinnamon too!) Make sure the doughnuts are still hot so the sugar is absorbed. Enjoy! :)

       

      Coconut Butter Cookies

      Submitted by:  Turkish Mommy (Be sure to follow her on Twitter and Instagram!)

      Background: If you met 1000 people in Turkey, it's likely that 998 of them are Muslim! Islam has been the primary religion in for the last 1,000 years. But, they've got even more historic links to Islam. Some people believe Noah’s ark landed at Mount Ararat, on Mount Masis which is the highest peak of the Ararat Mountains. Mount Ararat is located in far eastern Turkey.

      Ingredients:

      • 1 stick butter (softened at room temperature)
      • 1 table spoon organic coconut butter
      • 2/3 cup sugar
      • 1.5 cups flour (you may need more but make sure it will be a soft dough)
      • 1 teaspoon baking powder

      How to prepare:

      • Mix and blend all the ingredients to make a soft cookie dough
      • Make small one-bite-size cookies or bigger size as you wish
      • Place on non greased cooking pan at 325 F
      • Cool them down and enjoy with tea or milk after Iftar dinner kiddos! Don't forget to share with adults too:)

      Some notes:

      • If you want to make chocolate cookies, add 1 table spoon of extra dark cacaco,  and 1 tablespoon less flour
      • You can make moon shape cookies! Use white color for the moon and cacao for the dark side.
      • You can prepare your own coconut butter at home if you have  a good food processor

      Background: Dates have been around the Middle East for almost 6,000 years. And what a blessing they are. Dates pack a important nutritional punch: potassium, fiber, protein, and other vitamins and minerals. In the Holy Qu'ran, Allah (SWT) talks about the story of Lady Mariam in her birth of Prophet Isa (PBUH). She gave birth under a date-palm and ate dates prior to her pregnancy. A recent 2008 study supports this notion, women who ate dates for 4 weeks before pregnancy experienced positive effects during labor. Subhanallah.

      Ingredients

      • Medool dates
      • 1 Teaspoon of cream cheese per date
      • Chopped nuts (optional)

      Instructions:

      • Carefully slit the date
      • Remove the pit
      • Fill with cream cheese
      • Top with nuts!

      Background: Kids love candies, but most are loaded with processed sugar... but dates (and this recipe) are a great way to make something sweet that is actually healthy for them. Dates have natural sugar/carbs tempered with fiber, which does not spike blood sugar and won't make kids hyper. This recipe is a great substitute for other candies and sweets; and further, we'll teach kids to eat wholefood from a young age such that they can make healthier choices in the future.

      Ingredients

      • 10 Pitted dates
      • 1/4 Cup of almonds
      • 2 Tablespoons of pecans
      • 1/4 Cup of dark chocolate chips
      • Drop of vanilla essence
      • 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
      • 1 Tablespoon of flaxseeds
      • Fresh grated coconut

      Instructions:

      • Combine everything (except  for the  grated coconut) together in a food processor until it is a gooey texture
      • Roll the mixture into balls and garnish with freshly grated cocnut

        Background: Pakoras are one of the most popular snack across South Asian cuisines particularly Pakistani, Bengali, and Indian (where it is commonly known as bajias). Pakoras are also available in Afghan cuisine and in China, where they are called pakoda. They are usually complemented with tamarind chutney and ketchup, sometimes with tea. The great thing about this pakora recipe is that you tweak it to create a variety ofpakoras including aubergine, potatos, and pepper pakoras. With its origins in the East, pakoras are very popular in the West.

        Ingredients: (serves 4)

        • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric powder
        • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
        • 2 cups gram flour (chickpea flour)
        • 1/2 teaspoon ajwan (carom) seeds
        • Handful fresh coriander, chopped
        • 2 large onions, finely sliced
        • Pinch of salt and black pepper
        • Water, to mix
        • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
        • 2 to 4 fresh green chilies, finely chopped (optional)
        Method:
        1. First slice the onions into thin rounds. Separate slices and set them aside on a plate. Also finely slice the green chillies if using. 
        2. In a bowl add the gram flour, salt, pepper and the spices. Pour in a 1/2 cup of warm water and mix to create a think paste. Make sure it's not runny! If its runny,add a little more gram flour.
        3. In the bowl add the fresh ingredients: coriander, onions and chillies ( if using). Mix well.
        4. Heat a pan half full of hot oil (to test you could heat until a cube of bread turns brown)
        5. Turn heat to medium and carefully drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the hot oil and fry on both sides for around 4-8 minutes until golden brown. Longer time if you like it crispy.
        6. Drain well in a colander lined with kitchen paper. 
        7. Serve hot, dip in your favourite sauce (such as ketchup, tamarind or mint sauce) and enjoy!
        You can also make potato, cauliflower and broccoli pakoras (only difference is you will have to slice and boil before e.g 4 medium sized potatoes, half a head of cauliflower). Also use the same recipe to make  aubergine pakoras: simply substitute onions for aubergine which you would cut into 1cm thick slices then dip each slice into the spiced batter to coat both sides.

        Background: If there was ever one dish to represent Pakistan and India food, this one would be it! Chicken Tikka literally means Chicken pieces, and is a popular dish eaten by Muslims in South Asia. Pakistan was formed as an Islamic country in 1947, when it gained independence from India. But, Muslims have been living in the area for the last 1,400 years! 

        Ingredients:

        • 200g boneless chicken cubed
        • 1/4 tsp (for extra spiciness) or a pinch (for less spiciness) of red chilli powder
        • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
        • 1/2 tsp salt (depends on taste) 
        • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
        • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
        • 1/4 tsp black pepper
        • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
        • 1 tsp minced ginger and garlic
        • 1 tbsp melted butter 
        • 1 tbsp plain yogurt
        • 1/2 a green pepper/capiscum
        • Olive oil
        • Tortilla wraps 


        Instructions:

        • Marinate the chicken pieces in all the spices, yogurt, melted butter as well as the ginger & garlic mince paste. Leave to marinate for at least half an hour to help it soak up all the flavors of the spices. 
        • Place the chicken pieces on a grill pan (cover it with foil beforehand for less mess) and let it cook under the grill for about 15-20 minutes on low heat. You can also cook the chicken on skewers on a BBQ if you wish to! Be sure to turn the chicken over after 7-10 minutes so both sides turn a slightly burnt orange. 
        • Meanwhile slice the green pepper into thin slices and fry in a pan with a dash of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Keep moving them around in the pan so they cook evenly until they soften slightly. 
        • Take out your chicken and place it in a dish with all its drippings for extra flavor.
        • Whilst you wait for the chicken to rest and cool a little, you can make some salad using a chopped cucumber and some lettuce or a quick mint chutney. To make this mix together 3 tbsp plain yogurt, 1/2 tsp crushed mint/mint jelly, 1/4 tsp crushed green chilies, 1/4 tsp crushed garlic, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp coriander powder. If you are using fresh chilies and garlic slice it and grind it in a pestle and mortar. 
        • Now spread out your wraps, align the chicken pieces on top, add a few pepper slices and spread some mint chutney on the side. You can also add any other sauce that little ones love with chicken like tomato ketchup. Roll up the wrap and munch straightaway or pack away for a beautiful summer picnic!
