Iftar With Friends part 1

First of all , Iftar is the meal we have after breaking the fast. Since the Holy month of Ramadhan is about to start I wanted to do something different. Even though we fast during the month of Ramadhan,  the Iftar time is always a special time.  That is the time to break the fast at sunset. I am always on the look out for easy meals to make, snacks , desert and a main meal which isnt so heavy but still filling.
So I asked the lovely ladies of the  Muslimah Food Bloggers group on facebook  if they would like to contribute some easy kid friendly  and also budget friendly recipes. The response was quite overwhelming and unfortunately I couldn't fit in all  the  recipes so I  had to make three parts for my new series Iftar With Friends...   which are snacks, light meals and desert .
 So many thanks ladies, and without much further talk lets get cooking right.
In this post I have mostly collection of savory treats, light snacks , kid friendly recipes.
