Often times, the month of Sha’ban is dimmed by the light of Ramadaan. But this is a beautiful month where the moon glows its brightest. In this month, one can achieve the deeds beyond a lifetime and ask for even more forgiveness than imaginable. For these reasons, i have chosen to diary the activities i have done with my toddler to help instill the beauty of Sha’ban.

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! ?
