Shabaan Anaaj “Batatah” Bread


  • 1 cup cooked potato
  • 2 cups (236g) tapioca starch
    I also sometimes use a few tablespoons of tapioca flour and mix with oat and whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon onion paste
  • 1 shake turmeric powder
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
    Enough to make the dough feel like play dough and not stick to your fingers
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened plant-based milk like oat, coconut, etc
    You may use cow or goat milk if you prefer


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until well-combined

Bake for about 25-30 minutes and enjoy! ?

A Prayer for You

During Nisf-Shabaan (Laylatul Bara’ah) my daughter and I made a prayer for those we love. Below is our dua.




Grant the womb that bore me a Palace in your Jannah.


Bless the mind that carries the worry of my future with tranquility of Jannah.


Make my siblings amongst those closest to You.




Protect my loved ones from a calamity that will break their heart or a joy that will consume it.


اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد
