What for Iftar ?

We need to bring energy back after fasts from dawn to sunset, during Ramadan. Ramadan is time for me to introduce Indonesians Traditional snack to my husband. I tell you, it's not always easy to introduce those kind of snack to him sometime he loves , sometime he say NO, Thanks ! especially if the snack to sticky or to sweet, well.. we have a different meaning of sweet if you wonder why . Sweet but not too sweet, that what he want. But me ?? gosh..!!! if you talk sweet comes from chocolate .. well..well. probably I won't share with you LOL .

Yesterday I made one of Indonesians Snack, 'Getuk Lindri' ala me. Mean is the shape is not same as my mom made, but the ingredients is always same. Did He like ? Yes, He did.. yaaaay... so another day, I made something special for him comes from his country, Iran. See, everybody happy !

And I dedicated this post to my fellow blogger, Lubna for her 2nd event Joy From Fasting to Feasting. and if you like to participate too, please don't hesitate to klik LINK HERE it's fun to tell about your fasting experience and share your special dish with us.

Fit, I love getuk lindri but never figured out how to do it until just like a few seconds ago while I was going through your recent posts. Maybe I would try it this weekend.. and let you know how it is.

Thanks for sharing, Fit!
