My Ramadan this year in Hyderabad along with my parents and loved ones was indeed delightful alhamdulillah. I witnessed the typical Hyderabadi Ramadan fervor. By afternoon almost all restaurants would gear up to prepare the day’s Haleem. The pounding of this delectable dal and wheat mixture starts and by Iftaar time, the streets would be full of stalls set up selling all kinds of fresh fruits, to a range of freshly deep fried snacks and what not. By the night, all mosques would be filled with Allah ke banday coming from far and near to pray and beg Allah for mercy and blessings.

As promised, its time for me to present the roundup of all the entries sent for the Hyderabadi Ramadan Food Festival 2010~Season II.
This year, sadly non-bloggers have not come forward and participated in the event. My purpose of hosting these events on my blog is to be able to provide a platform for non-bloggers to share their recipes with the world. However my fellow food bloggers have sent some delicious contributions. Do go through them and try the delicacies.
She has however shared with us her recipe where one can cook this delight in our own kitchens using the standard pressure cooker.
According to me Shaami Kabab is a necessity that almost every Hyderabadi woman prepares and stocks up before Ramadan commences.
I thank all the participants for their contributions and If I have missed out any of the entries, please let me know.
