Tastiest Chicken Shami Kababs recipe 😍 for Ramadan by morEwish πŸ•Œ



The sizzling sound in the frying pan and the aroma that surrounds is sensational while preparing shami kababs. AND the taste…delightful!  πŸ₯˜ Shami Kabab is a truly delicious treat at any time of the day. You can make sandwiches with it or serve it as snack, they are perfect for Ramadan, for Sahoor or for iftar. πŸ•Œ




I always prefer to make a big batch and freeze. The best part is that the kababs freeze very well so you can make several days or weeks ahead of time  They become soggy and fall apart when completely defrosted, so fry them on medium heat within 10-15 minutes after taking out of the freezer.




If you walk into my home unannounced, chances are I will have some of these kababs in the freezer. Depending on the time, I serve them as snack with and a chatni or make a sandwich for lunch , or serve with rice dishes for dinner.  You get the point?  They are versatile and can be served anytime of the day.

Deep Cleaning you Fridge/Freezer πŸ’™ | Getting Ready for Ramadan by morEwish πŸ•Œ




The best time to clean your fridge when its nearing empty, right before you go grocery shopping... I've been so busy lately, work, Youtube videos and kids end of school projects, that everything was piling up and since Ramadan are coming, I know I have to tackle this project, it was getting super grimy and disorganized

Before... 


To start up my project I took out absolutely everything from the fridge, I remove everything I possibly can, all shelves and drawers. While I was taking out stuff and food which needs to be thrown away, I was doing it right away. We always have a leftover food day at least once a week, but still I have food which needs to be thrown away.

For wiping and sanitizing I made my homemade cleaner with 50/50 ratio of water and Vinegar.. I clean everything with this liquid and wipe out with paper towel.. for some stubborn stain sprinkle some baking soda and scrub in using sponge then wipe with water or with this water solution and polish out. I wipe down absolutely everything using same method






Time to put everything back on its place and time to organize... I saw people using table mat as a fridge liners and I  adore that idea to catch up any spills and for quick cleanup... Then load your food... including your grocery shopping purchase... and start organizing according to your
household needs, I am stocking up on chutneys and achars since Ramadan are coming... and daily
breakfast items will go back...


Video Tutorial:





So After Fridge, time to move on to my freezer compartment, almost followed the same procedure,
took out almost everything but for freezer i put the stuff right by the freezer on the floor, and starting working my way up little quicker.. I took out all plastic shelving I possibly can and washed
them outside in my driveway with soapy water





Then Start cleaning up with same vinegar water liquid... I have no idea how bottom of the freezer get those crumbs so the best way to clean thoese use hose extension on your vacuum its super fast.


so here's Before....


And here's After...




Its so freakingly satisfying to see clean fridge. You’ll save money because you won’t be re-buying
things you didn’t realize you had buried in the back of the fridge. Plus, your fridge will work more efficiently and be more cost-effective.
Most importantly, though, having a clean fridge will help keep your family healthy and safe!

Getting Ready for Ramadan | Ramadan Kitchen Hacks by morEwish πŸ’ž




Ramadan Is around the corner, being the month where the rewards of any act of worship and charity are multiplied. Ramadan is a time Muslims look forward to, as we strive to perform more ibadah and good deeds.
Unfortunately sometime we spend the ENTIRE day planning, cooking, shopping and thinking about food, instead of concentrating on Salah, Quran and other acts of worships.





However, do keep in mind that Ramadan is not a food festival. It is so much more than that, we need to prioritize. This is why just as you may have an ibadah plan for Ramadan, having a planned and organised kitchen is also important, so this year I came up with few ideas on how to stay organized and plan ahead for Ramazan so we can  focus  more on other activities like performing taraweeh, reciting Quran and performing dhikr and i am super excited to share with you guys today!


Video Tutorial:




1. Pre Ramadan deep cleaning:

Since we do not want to spend lot of time and energy doing any major cleaning up in our kitchen during Ramadan, it makes perfect sense to do this beforehand. Getting rid of any extra stuff or ingredients to make space for the items that you will need for Ramadan.
Deep cleaning your oven, microwave, cabinets, fridge, freezer, windows, kitchen counter, stove top and floor. Designate a home for all your ingredients and kitchen utensils or tools.






2. Make list and Go Shopping: 



Make a complete list of necessary ingredients which are essentials for your household needs, stuff including, tamaraind, imli, cholay, baisan... Dont forget to add hepling Items like cling wrap, foil, paper towel, plastic bags and food containers. They are useful to have in the kitchen, especially when it comes to meal preparation and storing leftovers or make-ahead meals.





3.  Ramadan as a Family: 

Ramadan is ideal for families to spend time together in a period that is so spiritually uplifting! Ramadan is a time where the home is a spiritual hub for the family  As parents, siblings and relatives, we should take advantage of this excitement and make Ramadan productive for the children too! Invite them to help prepare iftar with child-friendly recipes, or like here I made a assembly line and target was to make 100 Chicken Puffs.




We have seen mostly its sisters spend time preparing iftar, and for most, they have to focus and energy on all the household tasks including the cooking. Encourage your spouse to get involved in helping prepare iftar by sharing tasks such as chopping and setting up the table. Gently remind your spouse of the sunnah of helping around the house and that the reward for good deeds is multiplied by 70 during Ramadan!






4.  Menu Planning: 

Now that we have got the cleaning covered, it is time to move on to meal planning. I believe that doing this in advance will help make our transition into Ramadan much easier inshAllah. Sit down and  list down all the dishes that you plan to serve throughout the entire month I recommend that you consider including meals that can be made ahead of time in your menu. Here I am sharing
some food ideas which I am preparing for my family...

πŸ‘‰ Condiments:

Ramazan are considered to be incomplete without condiments, dips and chutneys.  I already prepared my Mint Chutney/Hari Chutney, Tamarind Ginger Chutney/ Imli and sonth ki chutney and Chaat masala




πŸ‘‰ Frozen Paratha's and Breads:

Forzen paratha's are great for Suhoor of Iftaar, or even for kids lunches, if you have pre made frozen parathas in freezer they will be super handy.




πŸ‘‰ Frozen Snacks:

Fried, spicy, snacks is a part of the Ramadan recipes and preparations. Although, Consume fried foods and sugar desserts in moderation. But here are some snacks I already prepared and kept in freezer

Chicken Puff/ Chicken Patties, Spring Rolls, Egg ans Cheese Spring Rolls, Shami kababs, Potato and Cottage Cheese Cutlets, Creamy Chicken Bread Cutlets,




5.  Organize Everything in Freezer: 

Your freezer can be your coolest friend and a big help when it comes to Ramazan preps. . I find that having an organized freezer makes our lives (and meal prep) so much easier. I bought these stack em up containers from DT to organize ramadan stuff in my garage freezer.
Develop a little system for where you store items, move older freezer meals to the front, newer ones to the back. When you go to grab something – make a point to grab the oldest item.
Label everything. Keep a permanent marker right by the freezer
