Food enthusiasts share family favourites with Asda this Ramadan

ASDA has reached out to British Asian food bloggers and chefs to recreate the global flavours of Ramadan with ingredients bought from the supermarket retailer.

Inspiration for Ramadan recipes can come from around the world and these days it’s not just traditional dishes such as chai and samosas that adorn the Iftar table.

According to British food writer Dina Begum, dishes such as Batera Bhuna, Jhalmuri and Chanar Kofta are certainly worth looking at. Experimenting with eastern and western flavours defines her unique style of cooking.

Squid Sambal

Masterchef UK 2018 contestant Zaleha Olpin specialises in infusing the oriental flavours of South East Asia into her Ramadan Iftars.

Her family favourite is squid in Oyster Sambal.

She says that “just how the Chinese love their soy sauce, Malaysians cherish their sambal! There are many ways to make sambal, including basic Sambal, soy sambal, sweet and sour sambal and many more recipes!”

Hungry Hijabi, a British Asian blogger and recipe developer, swears by the Chicken and Red Pepper Fried Udon Noodles. A family favourite, she chanced upon the recipe during a trip with her family to the London Eye.

Initially, she found it difficult to find the right Udon noodles to cook at home but found them at her local Asda.
