How to make Oats Nombu kanji | Ramadan 2022 | Iftar Recipes

by SG Chef

Prepare for Ramadan by planning Suhur/Iftar meals, make-ahead recipes, and freezer meals for a relaxed and stress-free fasting experience. Try healthy and light Iftar recipes for easier fasting.

Here’s a recipe for oats nombu kanji, which allows you to enjoy the goodness of oats.

Ramadan fasting

Ramadan fasting is a type of intermittent fasting that promotes fat mass and body weight loss.

Since Ramadan shifts 11 days earlier every year, this year’s Ramadan falls during the summer. Ramadan fasting begins with Suhur/Sahar and ends with Iftar, often starting with dates and water. To maintain energy levels, eat fiber-rich foods, vegetables, and fruits, and stay hydrated with small, portion-controlled meals between Iftar and Suhur/Sahar. Avoid fried foods and sweets to prevent fatigue during this holy month.

Oatmeal diet

If you’re looking to shed some pounds during Ramadan, incorporating the oatmeal diet into your routine can be helpful. Rolled oats, also known as old-fashioned oats, are less processed and have a thicker texture compared to quick-cooking oats, but they take longer to cook. Why not consider swapping rice for oats and enjoy a light and healthy oats nombu kanji with your preferred side dish?

Traditionally, nombu kanji is served with snacks like bajji, vada, and samosa, but I served it with tawa-fried cutlet.

I don’t limit this oats nombu kanji recipe to just Iftar, as I find it to be a light and healthy dinner option that I can prepare whenever I want.
