Wilful fasting at its best, Ramzaan has brought out every one’s inner “Hangry Demon” (hungry + angry: You’ve been this way – admit it!) one time or another. While one feverishly waits for the clock hands to loom ever-so close to iftaar, your stomach conveniently begins to digest itself. While that happens, even if it means the very death of you, you should look through this mouth-watering list of yumminess and try not to mutter curses (haraam hai, bhai!)
1. Murg Lababdaar
Look at this sinful pot of creamy-meaty goodness – now tune in to the bubbling hunger in your stomach and know this – your life will never be the same again without this ambrosia passing through your lips. The perfect blend of spices, nuts and oh-so tender chicken, the chicken lababdar is a dish best eaten alone (why share?) with butter naans! Pay no attention to the arteries clogging up on you!

2. Hyderabadi Haleem
Oh, the things we’d destroy for just a spoon of this soft, melt-in-the mouth, meaty goodness. Pound to perfection and cooked till angels cry – the haleem has been a staple iftaar dish since the time immemorial. In the cornucopia of flavour, the delicate balance of pulses, meat and aromatic spices come together in ways to make you want to quiver with delight. How! just HOW could such perfection exist – something that still baffles us.
