Ramadan is around the corner, and since food is such a big part of Ramadan, I wanted to share some delicious and easy iftar recipes with you guys today.
What is Ramadan?
Ramadan is celebrated by Muslims all over the world.
It's the 9th month of the Islamic Year, and during this month, Muslims all over the world fast each day from dawn (suhoor) to sunset (ifar).
At the completion of the month, Muslims celebrate Eid with their loved ones.
Naturally food is a big part of this month, and special dishes are made at both suhoor and iftar time.
What is Iftar?
Iftar is the time when Muslims break their fast at sunset.
Often lots of delicious snacks are served at iftar time, followed by a light dinner.
Since Muslims eat after a long day of fasting, lots of fruit, refreshing drinks and filling foods are served at snacks.
