Desi totkay for an easy roza

Okay, guys. In the wise words of that kid who goes viral the same time each year: Ramazan aya, roza rakho jee. But to keep these rozas, we need the right kinda fuel. Now, we’ve all heard of totkas to get us through the day without feeling hungry, thirsty or tired. Here are a few desi totkas that might help you out:

(Disclaimer: We haven’t tried most of them, but we think we might as well give these a shot given the task at hand.


1. One of the most interesting desi totkay for an easy roza involve the use of lehsan?

According to this totka, eating two or three garlic cloves is going to keep us strong and not make us feel thirsty. Now, we just need to figure out how to consume lehsan in this form. Also – genuine concern – is this healthy?

13. Water should be a priority, in general

Heatwave + summertime + rozaspakka dehydration. Have a sufficient amount of water during Sehri. It’s the simplest and easiest thing to do.
