Ramadan is a month of prayer and reflection for Muslims all around the world. Throughout this holy month, all adult Muslims are obliged to fast from sunrise to sunset, with a pre-dawn meal called Suhur or Sehri and an evening feast called Futoor or Iftar. Iftar is the fast-breaking evening supper eaten during Ramadan at the time of adhan of the Maghrib prayer. These dinners are frequently shared with friends and family. While the foods served at an iftar varies from community to community, dates are a common choice, a link to the Prophet Muhammad eating dates to break his fast. While the faithful break their fast with a rich iftar feast of biryani, haleem, phirni, kebabs and other delectable dishes, who says you can’t you enjoy these mouth watering treats as well?
