We have been blessed with yet another Ramadan, Shukar Alhamdullilah. If you haven’t stocked up your kitchen with the groceries required during the month, you must be panicking on what to buy and what not to buy. We are here to make matters simple for you, just purchase one of Howmuch’s Ramadan grocery packages and all your grocery needs for Ramadan will be fulfilled!
In case you still feel like buying items individually by going to a physical store or ordering online, we have compiled a list of the items necessary in Ramadan, to keep you and your family satisfied during the month. As the corona pandemic has been wide-spread, it is best to order online.
No iftar is complete without dates. And you can’t just have one piece! The sweet fruit is the Sunnah for opening your fast is also very delicious and hard to resist. A lot of people like to add this to their mixed fruit bowls too. Other uses of it include making kajhur ka halwa or eating it with milk! Dates are very beneficial for your body as they are an excellent source of minerals, iron, vitamins and energy to keep you active.
No Pakistani Iftari is complete without pakoray! While they are not as nutritious as one would hope, they sure are yummy! Just writing about it is bringing water to my mouth! And so, besan is necessary for you to buy during Ramadan. Keeping this in mind, all howmuch’s Ramadan packages contain this item.
There are so many ways to make chanay. Regardless of the recipe you use, this too is one of those dishes that is most probably found on your iftar table. Unlike pakoray, white chickpeas are very healthy and have a lot of nutritious value. So, instead of loading your plate up with pakoray, why not gravitate towards chanay? A lot of families also make use of black chickpeas, and I thoroughly approve as they too are delicious and very nutritious.
Have a scoop before sehri time ends and you won’t feel thirsty. Or, just have it as sehri! Use it in chana chaat and dahi bhallay. Yogurt is used in so many ways throughout Ramadan. And it’s a really good thing as yoghurt is full of benefits. It’s undoubtedly an excellent source of protein, probiotics and calcium. Someone who eats yoghurt daily develops a better immune system, has good weight management and reduced heartburn problems!
Oil is an essential everyday item and is already used in every household. Its usage increases a considerable amount during Ramadan. It’s the substance used to fry parkoras, samosas, spring rolls, jalebi and countless other items. It is also used for making dinner or sehri with. Without oil, there are very few dishes in the Pakistani cuisine that you can cook!
Many households like to have a very light dinner after iftar. Boiled rice is a popular choice. And even if you don’t eat boiled rice, you eat biryani and pulao, though, right? Eating roti for 29-30 days straight can get boring so buy rice for yourself and family so you don’t get bored so quickly! It’s great to have good food after fasting all day! There are so many different ways to cook, you can find millions of dishes that involve rice online, so why not make them? Have fun in your kitchen activities!
Last but not least, is flour. You can’t have your parathas, roti and so many other forms of bread without this ingredient. This is such an essential ingredient of every Pakistani household that I am sure, even if I didn’t include, you would buy! Like all the products mentioned above, this too has been included in the howmuch grocery packages. So, sit back home and order the package right now!
