My First Ramadan Iftar Menu 2022 – Simple, Low Budget & Vegan

I am preparing an easy iftar menu with local traditional dishes from the Southeastern part of Turkey Gaziantep. Written printable recipe: The first dish is “Müceddere” A bulgur rice with green lentils. It is a meal on its own, full of flavor and nutritious. But I wanted to serve it with mom-style Turkish köfte.

I completed the menu with tarhana soup and seasonal salad.
For the dessert, I made another recipe from both Ottoman times and famous in the Southeastern part again called “Astarlı Sütlaç” A two-layered pudding: first rice pudding and topped with “zerde” rose water and saffron-flavored rice pudding. I will share it in the upcoming episode.
Ingredients For Müceddere:
1 cup green lentils (washes and cook with 2 cups of water until somewhat done) drain the access water if any.
1+1/2 cups thick bulgur wheat
1 big onion
about 1/3 cup olive oil or a mix of olive oil and vegetable oil
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp each black pepper, red pepper flakes (pul biber), paprika
2 tsp or more salt
For the topping
1 big size onion
about 1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tsp pul biber
