Missing Ramadhan Bazaars This Year? Here are 5 Recipes To Try


Ramadhan marks a month of fasting before Hari Raya Aidilfitri - but with the current state of affairs due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is confirmed that we’ll be unable to bask in the usual bustle of annual festive Ramadhan bazaars. So instead of mourning for the loss of our beloved Ramadan Bazaars, why not try cooking some of your favourite Ramadhan foods at home?


Don’t lie - we’re sure by now that some of you have been honing your cooking skills during MCO and are now MCO Masterchefs! Break your fast with 5 of these Ramadhan bazaar foods with the recipe videos we’ve compiled below: 


1. Roti Jala 



Roti Jala is best soaked in your favourite curry sauce and eaten for suhoor! Even though it looks like it’s a lot of effort - just try out the video and you’ll see that it’s easily achievable at home. 


2. Ayam Percik



A mainstay at Ramadhan markets - this chicken dish is marinated with spices such as turmeric, lemongrass, cumin, and coconut milk, and then roasted to perfection. Are you drooling already? Because we are! 


3. Murtabak 



You could probably tapau this one from your local mamak but where’s the fun in that? Try making your own Murtabak and enjoy it freshly cooked in your own kitchen! 

4. Ayam Penyet 



This crispy Indonesian take on fried chicken is best paired with freshly steamed rice and a serving of sambal. It’s basically Nusantara comfort food - and we love it! 


5. Kuih Ramadhan 



How could we ever leave out one of the best delicacies of the Ramadhan season? To cap off your savoury dinners, have a sweet treat of Kuih Ramadhan for dessert. Try out this Onde-Onde recipe for starters!


While we’re sad that we’re missing out on the vibrant Ramadhan bazaars this year, it is imperative that we maintain social distancing for everyone’s safety. Meanwhile, we can always satiate our cravings with these Ramadhan food recipes. Have fun cooking everyone!
