The much awaited month for Muslims all over the world, the holy month of Ramadhan is here in just few days. Ramadhan is the month, where Muslims fast from dawn to dusk without food or water. This fast is obligatory on all adult Muslims - men & women - unless exempted. Hijri is the Islamic calender which starts commemorating the year when Prophet Muhammed(SAW) immigrated from Mecca to Medina with his companions. Iftar is the event where Muslims break the fast at the end of the fasting day at dusk.
Normally we break the fast with few dates, juice, porridge but after that we have a meal which will be based on different ethnicity. So this meal can include rice, pasta, bread, noodles, roti's , curries etc. To finish off the meal we also used to have some sweet or dessert.
So this event is about the whole evening, your recipes can be from starter to dessert anything vegetarian or non-vegetarian. You can send as many entries as possible. Since the criteria of this event is very simple almost all the recipes which you post will be suitable for this event.
