Though as a kid, I would impatiently wait for the delicacies  that would be spread on the  iftaar table,   now,  I prefer to spend less time in kitchen and focus more on prayers.  One way I try to cut down the cooking time during Ramadan is to prepare the snack items like cutlets, samosa n spring rolls in advance and freeze them. Other than these an iftaar delicacy at our home is the iadukkupathiri./i /span/span/divdiv class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;"a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/lubnakarim/14322492930" title="IMG6853 by Lubna  Karim, on Flickr"img alt="IMG6853" height="800" src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3855/14322492930e5bbb56d6dc.jpg" width="534" //a/divdiv class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"span lang="EN-US"span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;"Adukkupathiri is a traditional Malabar dish .
