Its already been 15 days since we started fasting for the month of Ramadaan, I have been a bit neglectful of my blog for the past couple of weeks but things have been extremely hectic on my side. It seems time is really flying, very soon I will be preparing full swing for Eid.
We usually have a selection of savouries during iftaar (which includes samoosas, pies, kebaabs etc) I decided to make something a little different last night, Nandos inspired burgers. They went down a treat served with some oven baked chips and a side salad. They were not exactly like the original but nevertheless tasted awesome! Give it a try:
SoK’s ‘Nandos’ Burgers
4 chicken fillets malleted
Make a paste with the following:
2 heap tbl mayo,
1 tsp dhana jeeroo,
1/2 tsp whole jeroo,
1 -1/2 tsp pounded green chillies,
1 tsp fresh garlic,
2 dessert spoons nandos garlic sauce,
1 dessert spoon nandos wild herb,
a spinkle or lemon pepper and
the juice of 1 lemon.
Smear the paste on the fillets and allow to marinate preferably overnight.
Heat a non stick pan, drizzle sunflower oil allow the oil to ripple slightly and allow to cook on both sides
About 4 min on each side should do it.
Transfer to a tray and grill in a hot oven until the fillets are a delicous golden brown .
Butter portugese rolls. Layer with a piece of baby lettuce, some tomatoe, and cucumber slices. Top with the sizzling chicken fillet, a slice of cheese and a generous dollop of perinaise and a drop of tomatoe sauce.
I assembled these a little early so before iftaar I popped them into the microwave for about 10 secs.

Hmmmmm, what about wholewheat pizzas as a starter for iftaar?
And this cold weather calls for some spicy butter chicken for mains:
