LMB Ramadan Diary – 4th Roza

LMB’s Ramadan Diary is a short fun page to make your Roza more enjoyable ;)

Dua of the Day:

‘O God! please keep our loved ones and ourselves safe’ Amen!

Today’s To-Do:

Walk a little instead of taking a regular car, bus or rickshaw ride back to home. Physical exertion during fasting works cool in burning a good number of calories

Thought of the Day:

Thank God for giving us everything that millions in the world can not afford to buy or own.

Recipe of the Day: Oven Baked Parmesan French Fries


Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 to 8 servings


5 russet potatoes
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Peel potatoes and cut into half-inch thick slices (lengthwise) cut again into 1/2-inch thick fries. Place the potatoes into a pot with cold water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring up to a gentle boil and simmer until a paring knife tip goes through easily. Cooked about 3/4 of the way through.

3. Drain carefully and put in a bowl. Add olive oil, 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Toss well and lay out in 1 layer on nonstick baking sheet. Bake until light brown.

4. When brown, sprinkle with Parmesan and continue to bake until well-browned and crispy and the cheese is melted and caramelized, about 6 to 7 more minutes. Remove and let cool for 2 minutes. Serve.

    Thanks for sharing….I don’t understand why in Ramadan everywhere there is cooking show…you tune in TV and all channels have cooking shows…now on blogs you have added cooking receipes…wht the heck is this suppose to mean? is cooking show/recepies compulsory part of the blessings of Ramadan? or is it that we have become eating freaks!
    Nothing to feel pround of…!

    It’s so good to see this page alive.. Pehle it used to be SO dead! ;)
    Anyway, I had a request to make to the admins of this MB. There is a petition against a Pakistani who has illegaly been detained by US authorities. The petition is posted on KMB and demands to free Uzair Paracha. Please post that petition here as well so that those who read LMB but not KMB can sign it and get others to sign it too. It might or might not help but we can at least try.

    @Pretty: “”Pakwan” is part of Ramzan celebrations.” you got it wrong.
    One should encourage/spread/teach others understand the real importance of Ramadan. And shouldn’t waste time in celebrations. People celebrate to let their emotions out…Ramadan is all about controlling and becoming restrain from such things.
    Lets not bring Enlightened Moderation here…because all 5 pillars of Islam are quite clear and demand the basic..there is no them vs us!
