LMB Ramadan Diary – 9th Roza

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

Dua of the Day:

‘O, God! Guide those who are lost in their own greed’ Amen!

Today’s To-Do:

Help your mom in cleaning the kitchen after iftaari.

Thought of the Day:

Patience, tolerance, generosity and humility; all should be excersized even when Ramadan is over. After all, it is what Ramadan is for; to cleanse our souls and to train us for rest of the year.

Recipe of the Day: Chicken Paprika


1 large chicken, jointed (or use 2 large chicken legs and 2 breasts, halved)
2 tbsp olive oil
knob butter
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp sweet paprika
1 tbsp hot paprika
1 tbsp flour
285ml/½pint chicken stock
3 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley
2 red peppers, de-seeded and cut into 1cm/0.5in strips
4 large ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
250ml/8fl oz sour cream


1. Rub the chicken pieces with the salt. Heat the oil and butter in a large heavy-bottomed pan and brown the chicken all over for a few minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set to one side.

2. To the same pan, add the onions and garlic and sweat for about five minutes. Add the sweet and hot paprika, then the flour, and stir until combined – take care not to burn it.

3. Add the stock and stir. Return the chicken pieces to the pan, adding a bit more stock if the mixtures seems too dry.

4. Add half of the chopped parsley and bring to the boil. Add the red pepper strips, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

5. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer gently for about one hour.

6. When the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the sour cream and the remaining parsley. Check the seasoning and serve.

    Aha! What an awesome Ramadan series we have going on in here. The LMB has great Ramadan that remind me of my childhood rozas… when Ramadan was all about dua, good food, and good thoughts. Very good.
