Delia Pereira and Grace Fujimaki you’re two lucky ladies, each winning a voucher for two people. You’ll certainly find your favourite Iftar dish umm ali, Delia, plus plenty of milk and dates for Grace. Mabrouk and enjoy! Thank you to all participants. Read on for our next giveaway.

Chef Osama Braun culinary ambassadorWith Ramadan in full swing, we spoke to Egyptian-born Chef Osama, Dubai TV celebrity and also Braun’s culinary ambassador to tell us a little about his cooking philosophy for the holy month.

“As people are fasting and time is precious, it’s even more essential during Ramadan that food preparation is simple, easy, convenient and versatile.”

“That way, people can spend less time cooking and more time with their families. In particular during the holy month, I see a tremendous spike of interest from my followers on Dubai TV, my website and Facebook fan page. They really look forward to preparing every meal, whether it’s a simple dish for working families or a more elaborate feast.”

“One thing that’s important to get across though is the fast should ideally be broken slowly with some dates and water, followed by some warm soup; essential for hydration.”

Braun Multiquick Cordless Hand ProcessorSo with a little help from Braun’s Multiquick cordless hand processor to ease the prepping, you can cook up some of Ramadan’s signature dishes such as this Chef Osama recipe for falafel delights. Click here to read.

So would you like your very own Braun Multiquick cordless hand processor (MR 730) to see if this recipe is as easy peasy to make as Chef Osama says? Well we have one worth AED 350 to give away to FooDiva friends in the U.A.E.

To enter, simply tell us what dish you’d concoct with your hand processor, along with your email by commenting on this post. You can increase your chances of winning by also Liking and commenting on my Facebook page, and retweeting my tweet mentioning @foodivaworld. Remember I need your email.

We’ll pick one winner randomly on Sunday, August 14th, when we will also announce the third and final competition. We’re saving the best to last, so stay tuned!

    5 Tomatoes, Peeled and Diced ; 2 Tablespoons Butter ; 2 Tablespoons Flour ; 3 Sprigs Oregano ; 8 Basil Leaves
    1 Teaspoon Black Pepper ; 1/4 Teaspoon Salt ; 2 1/2 Cups Milk; 1 Cup Water

    Scald the Milk in a small pot, set aside.
    Simmer tomatoes in water with all seasonings, except half the basil leaves for 10 minutes
    Make a roux in another pot: Combine the flour and butter and cook on low until it turns just blonde and golden & you smell a faint nutty aroma. Allow to cool slightly.
    Add the milk in a slow stream using the hand blender to combine to a smooth finish.
    Now add the tomatoes using the hand blender to puree in the pot until smooth. Simmer for another 10 minutes
    Add the rest of the chopped basil as a garnish.
    Perfect for a hot summer day 🙂
