After I got married, during the month of Ramadan, we made Turri. This extremely delicious milk dish to be had at Sehri (before beginning the fast), made from milk and dry fruits. Here’s how it is made. I do not know if this drink is known by any other name in other parts of the world, it is called “Turri” in India.
You can add/remove dry fruits as per your liking, but remember not to use Raisins (किशमिश) in this preparation
This extremely nutritious drink can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days. Heat in microwave before serving it though.

Suhoor (Arabic: سحور lit. of the dawn, pre-dawn meal), also called Sehur, Sehri,suhur, Sahari and Sahur in other languages, is an Islamic term referring to the meal consumed early in the morning by Muslims before fasting, sawm, before sun down during the Islamic month of Ramadan. The meal is eaten before fajr prayer, or dawn. Suhoor as the morning meal is matched by Iftar as the evening meal, during Ramadan, replacing the traditional three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner), although in some places dinner is also consumed after Iftar later during the night. Being the last meal eaten by Muslims before fasting from dawn to sunset during the month of Ramadan, Suhoor is regarded by Islamic traditions as a benefit of the blessings in that it allows the person fasting to avoid the crankiness or the weakness caused by the fast.
